AMD card partners should be ready for the December 13 launch of the Radeon RX 7900 series
It looks like the BoardChannels report isn’t quite right. German publication ComputerBase quickly reached out to AMD card partners to ask if their custom RDNA3 cards will be ready at launch, it turns out some should.
The alleged rumor that the custom Radeon RX 7900 cards are expected to launch a week or two after the AMD MBA (Made by AMD) reference cards. These MBA cards should be available from all major board partners, so it’s not like we’re only seeing AMD-branded cards. However, it wouldn’t be entirely surprising if the custom cards were slightly delayed either, as almost all high-end Radeon launches look exactly the same.
ComputerBase is now confirming that select consulting partners should be ready with their custom designs. The question was specifically about custom designs, not rebranded MBA cards. Therefore, there’s a good chance we’ll at least see pre-orders for these cards, even if they’re slightly delayed or not shipping to retailers in good quantity.

It’s worth reminding our readers that even before the release of the GeForce RTX 4090 cards, retailers were already showing shelves full of RTX 40 boxes or were even selling cards early. So far, we haven’t seen or heard any such news about the Radeon RX 7900 series.
just yesterday The sapphire showed the first teaser of their upcoming RX 7900 NITRO GPUs, while PowerColor and Asus had already presented their cards earlier. What all of these announcements lack are details, such as clock speeds, power limits, and more. Even though some cards are ready, none of the card partners have yet publicly confirmed the final specs of their cards.
