Acer’s Overclocked RX 7800 XT is a Hot Release in China?

RX 7800 XT Overclocking

Only a few months after CES 2024, Acer released the Nitro Shadow Knight RX 7800 XT in the Chinese market earlier today. While we were aware of other curiosities from Acer at the time, we were unable to get it for us at the exhibition. Still, the newest “Shadow Knight” in Acer’s roster seems like a promising addition. When it is introduced in the US, it may compete with other 7800 XT cards that are less expensive than RTX 4070 cards if the pricing is reasonable.

They have previously noted that the RX 7800 XT precisely lies between the RTX 4070 Super and RTX 4070 in terms of pasteurisation capabilities. Workloads related to ray tracing in particular force the RX 7800 XT to perform more like a 4060 Ti, even though that’s still faster than anything a console can provide.

Let’s examine the main characteristics now and find out how this differs from a standard RX 7800 XT apart from the new 2.5-slot dual-fan cooling configuration.

Best RX 7800 XT

After being originally shown at CES 2024, Acer has finally released the Nitro Shadow Knight RX 7800 XT graphics card in China. Apart from the standard RX 7800 XT variants, this new graphics card from Acer’s range is distinguished by its enhanced cooling system and overclocked capabilities. A step beyond the typical 2430 MHz seen in RX 7800 XT variants, the Nitro Shadow Knight RX 7800 XT has 60 AMD RDNA 3 cores and offers a core clock speed of up to 2565 MHz.

Furthermore, the card’s 16 GB of GDDR6 RAM supports 60 ray accelerators and 120 AI accelerators. This graphics card uses a total of 281 Watts of electricity, which is a little more than the regular model’s 263 Watts. The card has a 2.5-slot architecture and two fans to provide cooling. Its dimensions are 279 x 129.62 x 50.42 mm. By lowering noise by 2.4 dB and increasing airflow by up to 9.7%, this design seeks to make the card quieter.

The commercial success of the Nitro Shadow Knight RX 7800 XT will be greatly influenced by its pricing, particularly if Acer chooses to introduce it in the United States. A comparable pricing point for the Shadow Knight RX 7800 XT would be $500 or less, given that the RTX 4070 and 4070 Super variants are often priced over $550 and other RX 7800 XT versions are available for around $480. With this price approach, it would be an attractive option inside AMD’s own portfolio.

Official Acer Nitro Shadow Knight RX 7800 XT Specifications:

  • 60 AMD RDNA 3 Cores for the GPU.
  • Video Game Up to 2565 MHz for the core clock (up to 2430 MHz for the stock 7800 XT).
  • Ray Accelerators: 60, or one for each GPU core120 AI Accelerators (2 per GPU core).
  • GPU Memory: 16 GB GDDR6;
  • GPU TGP: 281 Watts (263 Watts targeted by Stock 7800 XT).
  • GPU measurements: 129.62 x 50.42 x 279 mm

This may sound like an easy victory for a prospective US Shadow Knight RX 7800 XT release, as the RTX 4070 and 4070 super both typically price for far over $550 on Amazon at the time of writing. That being said, $550 is really not a particularly competitive pricing inside Team Red’s own boundaries, since other 7800 XTs are readily available for as little as $480.

Although the Nitro Shadow Knight RX 7800 XT was shown at CES, there is still no official news on whether it will be available in the EU/US market. Given the present market’s abundance of expensive aftermarket cards, the card’s pricing will have a significant impact on how well it is received and how successful it is in the marketplace.

In keeping with its relatives, $500 or less would probably be the optimal pricing range for this card in a domestic release. Though no formal announcement has been made as of this writing, they’d be a bit shocked if it didn’t make its way domestically given that it was shown at CES before this release.

One of the marketed advantages of the Acer RX 7800 XT is that it has fans that can lower noise levels by 2.4 dB and increase airflow by up to 9.7%, according to an official quotation. Together with the enhanced TGP and Boost Clock, these cooling figures ought to make this card rather overclocking-friendly as well, though testing are obviously need before they can be certain of that.

This one will ultimately succeed or fail based on the final price. There is no lack of expensive AIB cards on the market, so maybe Acer will keep that in mind if they decide to release the Shadow Knight 7800 XT in the US.
