Sapphire PURE Radeon RX 7900 GRE Review – Enter the Golden Rabbit

Final Thoughts

So that’s it, a quick review of a product that was actually launched over six months ago in China, and now serves to improve AMD’s global Radeon product offering in this RDNA 3 generation. It has a lot to offer for the very modest $50 increase over the Radeon RX 7800 XT (list price), but isn’t covering any new ground – particularly for Radeon RX 6950 XT owners.

This Radeon RX 7900 GRE launch is more about availability and pricing than anything else, and it makes sense to bring over the Golden Rabbit Edition now that it appears that the RX 6950 XT is finally fading away. Indeed, the 6950 XT had been available until very recently at the same $549 USD price point as this 7900 GRE, but a look at Newegg as I write this shows those cards as “out of stock” now.

On the pricing front, the Sapphire lineup looks like this at launch:

  • PULSE RX 7900 GRE: $549
  • PURE RX 7900 GRE: $569 (as reviewed)
  • NITRO+ RX 7900 GRE: $599
