Today at 3 p.m. the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and the Radeon RX 7900 XT (test) went on sale. A few hours later, when looking at the availability, an ambivalent picture emerges: while the more powerful and more expensive XTX variant is sold out, the smaller Radeon RX 7900 XT is still available.

The XTX is out of stock, the XT is available

When the GeForce RTX 4080 (test) went on sale almost a month ago, the Founders Edition in particular at the price of around 1,470 euros at the time and similarly expensive custom designs were sold out quite quickly. If you wanted to buy a GeForce RTX 4080 on the evening of November 16th, you could only reach for higher-priced flagship models from selected board partners, some of which were offered a few hundred euros above the recommended retail price. AMD’s competing Radeon RX 7900 XT(X) now shows an inverted picture: The RX 7900 XTX, which costs around 1,150 euros according to the RRP and has a rasterizer performance comparable to the GeForce RTX 4080, is sold out from reputable dealers everywhere – no matter what price prospective buyers are willing to pay are to be paid. There are already offers on eBay with a corresponding scalping surcharge.

This time it is the relatively cheaper cards in the form of the Radeon RX 7900 XT, which are still available on the evening of the start of sales – and sometimes at an RRP of around 1,050 euros. Mostly reference designs from various board partners are offered, for example at Mindfactory*, Notebooksbilliger* or Alternate*. In AMD’s own web shop, however, both the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and the around 15 percent weaker and 100 euro cheaper Radeon RX 7900 XT are out of stock.

High demand here, no interest there

As a result, two facts are striking: On the one hand, either the demand for the more powerful flagship seems to be higher or the corresponding supply is lower. And on the other hand, the custom designs have not really arrived on the market yet, which was already speculated in advance. At that time, a total of three board partners made it clear to ComputerBase that there would be partner cards for the start of sales on December 13th – but ultimately very few are available from stock, even in the case of the Radeon RX 7900 XT. With regard to the situation in wholesale, the editors can confirm that the vast majority of custom designs are still in the pipeline; availability is therefore not expected until next week.

How the range and prices of the two new AMD graphics cards will develop in the coming days and weeks cannot of course be predicted – but it is reasonable to assume that particularly cheap models of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX will be sold out quickly for the time being. The smaller RX 7900 XT is showing better availability. The latter is now also available for the GeForce RTX 4080, after restrained demand became apparent just a few days after the market launch: Only around two percent of the community members tried to buy the second Ada Lovelace graphics card at the market launch, around half did get one. And two weeks later, little has changed in this situation: In a survey on November 30, only 1.3 percent of readers said they had purchased a GeForce RTX 4080. For comparison: With the much more expensive GeForce RTX 4090 (test) it was 5 percent.

In this respect, it is now of interest how, two weeks later, the readers again experienced today’s launch of the new AMD graphics cards that the community had been longing for. How interested are you in the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT? Have you bought or plan to buy a graphics card?

Anyone who has already bought a Radeon RX 7900 XTX or RX 7900 XT or is currently flirting with an order is asked to report what made them make this decision – what considerations played a role? The editors are also looking forward to detailed answers in the comments.

A similar question is aimed at all those readers who have not bought any of the new RDNA 3 graphics cards and are not planning to order either. Why exactly is AMD’s new GPU generation so far uninteresting for you? Is there a serious reason or do several facets play a role?

Cheap RTX 4080 or expensive RX 7900 XTX?

And finally, the editors want to know how you would personally decide if you had a budget of around 1,350 to 1,400 euros and no graphics card in the gaming PC – which manufacturer would you choose? At that cost point, the cheapest custom designs of the GeForce RTX 4080 are currently listed in the price comparison, for example in the form of the Manli GeForce RTX 4080 Gallardo with a spirit level or the Palit GeForce RTX 4080 GameRock. On the AMD side, for example, the Aorus Radeon RX 7900 XTX Elite is just under 1,350 euros* and an Asus TUF, Sapphire Pulse or even Sapphire Nitro should also be in the budget – if they should become available, because so far they are only within the limits this theoretical question an option.

Three years ago, two entrepreneurs from Barcelona They launched an innovative project within the audiovisual production sector. Arnau Seix and Adrià Coll They founded the digital video startup, Titbit, weeks before COVID broke out, and in the middle of the pandemic they managed to raise their first round of investment. Three years later and with a consolidated project, the production company closes a new capitalization in which he has once again raised 150,000 euros.These rounds of adjusted capital allow us to grow and evolve in a conscious and reasonable way, without having to make disproportionate growth promises that imply making investments at a frenetic pace”explains Arnau Seix, who together with his partner and co-founder is committed to continuing to strengthen the bases to achieve the objectives set.

On this occasion, Titbit has given entry to reference investors in the world of advertising, and among them stands out one of the leaders in the sector, Juan Manuel de la Nuez, a professional with extensive experience and former CEO of the Wunderman Thompson agency. “In my professional career, I have met clients many times to whom the issue of content production for external communication or even internally, it was a real headache for them, since the agencies could not respond competitively in time or cost, and neither could the production companies. For this reason, when I got to know Titbit, I understood that it is a solution that responds to these headaches and therefore represents a clear potential for growth and investment.”.

With this round, Titbit aims to increase its national expansion, both commercially and in product development. The startup’s headquarters are located in Barcelona and also has an office in Madrid. “We want to create a commercial network that allows us to help other countries to achieve more agile and economical productions, since we have confirmed that the creation of digital content suffers the same problems outside our borders”. In addition, the celebration of the third anniversary of the startup coincides with a change of corporate image and the launch of the new website, which is in line with continuing to innovate in the sector, reflecting the value of its disruptive proposal.

Regarding the evolution of the project in the short and medium term, at a time of economic uncertainty like the current one, companies apply budget cuts in marketing and advertising, but even so they need to communicate more than ever, since they must compensate for the loss of sales caused by the crisis. “Many brands are looking for a new way to produce their content for digital channels, and this is where Titbit’s proposal becomes more relevant than ever”, explains Arnau Seix, who also sees international markets as an interesting option to continue growing.

“In these three years we have seen how big brands have connected with our message: closed and transparent prices, much more agile productions (maximum 15 days) and unlimited rights of use in all their pieces”. Stephanie SalvatMarketing Manager of Hoteles Hesperia, tells about his experience with Titbit that “It is the first production company I know and with which I collaborate that has such a clear differential value proposition”.
