The second wave of AMD Radeon 7000 Series Desktop Graphics Cards is available now in New Zealand! This release includes both the Radeon RX 7700 XT and RX 7800 XT Graphics Cards models from top brands PowerColor, Sapphire, ASRock, & Gigabyte. 

Please note: Stock for day one in NZ is expected to be extremely limited.

These new 7000 series graphics cards to release are mid-range specification, and just like the recently released NVIDIA 4060(Ti) series releases they don't require any fancy adaptors to connect to our power supplies, and while they're large and powerful graphics card, they're not too big, so they're sure to fit nicely in many mid sized cases, great news for those looking to upgrade to the latest.

We’re excited to offer a new class of graphics cards delivering the performance and visual fidelity that allows gamers to elevate their gameplay and truly enjoy today’s and tomorrow’s games the way they were designed to be experienced."
