Seasonic Reveals Radeon RX 7900 XT Requires 850W PSU

Seasonal confirmed that three AMD Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards will arrive shortly, and these are the Radeons RX7900XTthe Radeon RX7800XT and the Radeon RX7700XTalthough most interesting of all is that its high-end GPU would require a power supply of 750Wwhich should be brought to 850W when combined with an AMD Ryzen 8-core processor. So if using a 16-core Ryzen processor, or combining it with an Intel Alder Lake or Raptor Lake processor, an even more powerful power supply would be required.

Fortunately, the calculator app continues to list these GPUs, indicating that whether the Radeon RX 7900 XT is paired with an Intel Core i9-12900KS, 80 Plus Platinum/Titanium 850W power supply, or directly upgrade to 1000W power.

Remember that it was intended that 1000W sources were the new standard in the future generation of GPUs, because Nvidia GPUs would consume even more power, just as next-gen processors from AMD and Intel will increase their power consumption, so that 850W might be on the limit .

power supply for AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT

On the other hand, the AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT requires the same power requirements, while the Radeon RX 7700 XT would require 100W less power to ensure that equipment operates properly under stressful conditions.

The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT and the rest of the series would arrive without the new 16-pin PCIe connector

Another detail of great importance is that the AMD Radeon RX 7000 they wouldn’t use the new 16-pin PCIe power connectorso these graphics cards will still require you to use multiple 8 or 6 pin PCIe connectors for your food.

This would confirm rumors that GPUs started being designed before the new power standard was announced. Basically the only “problem” is not being able to supply up to 600W of power with a single cable, although of course they allow reusing an existing power supply without the need for adapters.
