AMD confirms that RX 7900 XTX is an RTX 4080 competitor, FSR3 can be supported by pre-RDNA3 architectures

AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX vs GeForce RTX 4080

PCWorld AMD has another great interview on the RDNA3 architecture course.

One of the most common questions after the RDNA3 event ended was why AMD didn’t compare their RX 7900 series with GeForce RTX 40 GPUs. The answer was given by AMD’s Frank Azor (Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions & Marketing). He confirmed that the RX 7900 series will compete with the RTX 4080 series, and since NVIDIA simply hasn’t released this card, AMD has no data to add to the official table.

[Radeon RX 7900 XTX] Designed against 4080 and we don’t have ranking numbers on 4080. This is the primary reason why you won’t see NVIDIA compare. […] The $999 card isn’t a competitor to the 4090, which costs 60% more. It’s a 4080 competitor.

PCWorld was also curious to learn more about FSR3, AMD’s next-gen upscaling technology. It was announced during the RDNA3 showcase. AMD confirmed that this technology will roll out in 2023, but there was no mention of timing or GPU support. Another burning question in the community is whether FSR3 is supported by structures other than RDNA3. Frank Azor confirmed that AMD wants to support FSR3 more than RDNA3:

[AMD FSR3] Not a reaction or a quick thing [to DLSS3], which is absolutely something we’ve been working on for a while. Why did it take so long to come out, as you expected? The main thing to remember about FSR is the FSR philosophy and FSR doesn’t only work on RDNA2 or RDNA1 until now, they work on other generations of AMD graphics cards. They also work on competitors’ graphics cards. It’s exponentially harder than what we worked on in RDNA3. […] We really want to work with more than just RDNA3.

Azor continues to say that supporting an architecture is easier (referring to DLSS3 on the RTX 40). But AMD promised to support multiple architectures with FSR technology, which will take time. The company is still not 100% sure if the company will be able to fulfill its promise to support more architectures with FSR 3, but they are ‘trying’.
