Right, meet the RX-78TMERCB9 aka XFX MERC 319. A significant consideration for potential users is the Radeon RX 7800 XT cost, which is set at $539. The cards all get HDMI 2.1 connectors and the latest iteration in DisplayPort. You will not see the new 12-pin power connecter header introduced by NVIDIA; the cards will hold 8-pin headers; configuration depends on AIC/AIB choices as partner cards are free to choose to use whatever they deem applicable. Some remarks, first the card has a dual-BIOS, however currently is just that. There are no differences in between the two BIOS modes.


The backside shows a backplate, now with near graffiti-style MERC listed on there. We're not sure if everybody likes that, though. But overall, this is a great-looking product if you ask this humble editor. Speedster is the series of graphics card, and XFX plans to have multiple models within speedster. The number 319 relates to fan configuration. 3 = Number of Fans, 1 = 100mm, 9 =90mm.



The Radeon RX 7800 XT is equipped with 16GB/256-bit dedicated memory, suitable for contemporary games and graphic-heavy applications. We have reviewed a reference model from AMD. Central to the Radeon RX 7800 XT is the RDNA 3 GPU architecture from AMD, which offers enhanced performance, power efficiency, and features relative to earlier versions.



Both the Radeon RX 7700 XT and 7800 XT offer diverse connectivity options, featuring 3x DisplayPort 2.1 and 1x HDMI 2.1 outputs. With AMD's Radiance Display engine, the card supports DisplayPort 2.1, enabling frame rates as high as 480Hz in 4K and 165Hz in 8K. 


The 236W TGP-rated graphics card necessitates a dual 8-pin power connector and is equipped with a 2-slot design triple-fan cooler. The reference card has a venting backplate.
