AMD’s China-oriented Radeon RX 7900 GRE is now available as a standalone GPU in Europe

AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 GRE graphics card was launched as a China-oriented SKU. Yes, the GPU is available outside of China through system builders,. However, this was only as part of full systems. If you wanted to buy it as a standalone product, you had to be in China. Well, at least until now.

Two European retailers, PSK Mega Store (Italy), PC Componentes (Spain), and PC Garage (Romania) are now selling Sapphire’s RX 7900 Golden Rabbit Edition graphics card as a standalone product. In Italy the graphics card is available for €672. This places this GPU’s pricing between AMD’s RX 7800 XT and RX 7900 XT.

AMD’s RX 7900 GRE – Specifications

AMD’s GRE graphics card uses a cut-down version of Radeon’s Navi 31 RDNA 3 silicon. This 7900 series SKU features less memory and a smaller memory bus than AMD’s RX 7900 XT. It also features fewer Compute Units (CUs). With 80 CUs and 5120 stream processors, the graphics card features a lot more raw compute than AMD’s RX 7800 XT. However, in terms of memory bandwidth it actually slightly weaker. Depending on the workload, AMD’s 7900 GRE GPU can deliver performance levels that are close to their 7900 XT, or 7800 XT. This GPU can be very memory bandwidth limited, giving it a strange position within AMD’s GPU lineup.

AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 GRE fills a gap in the company’s GPU lineup between their 7800 XT and 7900 XT. In the lower-end of the GPU market a similar gap exists between AMD’s Radeon RX 7600 and RX 7700 XT.  Right now, it is unknown of AMD wants to make their Navi 31 GRE GPU more widely available in Western markets. These European retailers could simply be selling GPUs that were intended for pre-built systems as standalone GPUs.
