As a tech enthusiast, I can vouch for the fact that the battle for high-end GPU supremacy between AMD and NVIDIA is hotter than ever. Despite some skepticism, recent statements from AMD executives exhibit that their engineering expertise should not be underestimated.
AMD Executive Vice President Rick Bergman and Senior Vice President David Wang discussed the development of their latest offering, the Radeon RX 7900 Series, in an interview with the Japanese tech publication IT Media (development code name: Navi31). This cutting-edge GPU has an excellent price-performance ratio, making it a popular choice among gamers and PC enthusiasts.
NVIDIA, on the other hand, has unveiled its GeForce RTX 40 series, including the flagship model GeForce RTX 4090. (development code name: AD102). While this GPU certainly packs a punch in terms of raw power, its price and energy consumption have been heavily criticized, with some claiming it goes beyond common sense.
Bergman and Wang explained that they are avoiding high energy consumption and excessive cost by not releasing a more powerful GPU. In contrast, some consider NVIDIA's RTX 4090 to be an extravagant and overpriced piece of hardware.
Overall, the battle for GPU supremacy between AMD and NVIDIA is hotter than ever, with AMD's Radeon RX 7900 Series offering a cool balance of performance and price, while NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4090 has some impressive power but a less-than-cool price tag and excessive energy consumption.
