ASRock Radeon RX 7900 GRE Steel Legend 16GB OC Graphics Card Review

Today, we will be taking a look at the ASRock Radeon RX 7900 GRE Steel Legend 16GB OC Graphics Card. It’s aimed the mid-range GPU market for gamers who want decent 1440p gaming, with the ability to handle the occasional 4K gaming.

It uses AMD’s latest 7900-series GRE GPU, running at a slightly overclocked boost speed of 2,333 MHz (default is 2,245 MHz). While the game clock runs at a faster 1,972 MHz (default is 1,880 MHz).

It features 80 Ray accelerators, 80 Compute Units, 160 AI accelerators and a total of 5,120 stream processors.

Along with an overclocked GPU, it has a total of 16GB of GDDR6 ram on 256-Bit memory bus, running at a speed of 18 Gbps. Video output includes 3 x DisplayPort 2.1 and 1 x HDMI 2.1.

For cooling, itcomes with a triple fan design with striped axial fans, a stylish metal backplate, a reinforced metal frame, 5 heatpipes and a LED on/off switch for ASRock’s Polychrome SYNC.

The card features 2 x 8-pin PCIE power connectors, and has a typical board power of around 260W, so we recommend using a power supply of 750W or higher.

And if you didn’t know already – GRE stands for Golden Rabbit Edition, and it’s been released to celebrate the year of the Rabbit during 2023.

I would like to thank ASRock for providing the review sample. This is a snippet from what ASRock has to say about themselves on their website:

ASRock Inc. is established in 2002, specialized in the field of motherboards. ASRock strives to build up its own brand. With the 3C design concept, “Creativity, Consideration, Cost-effectiveness”, the company explores the limit of motherboards manufacturing while paying attention on the eco issue at the same time, developing products with the consideration of eco-friendly concept.


ASRock has been growing fast and become world third largest motherboard brand with headquarter in Taipei, Taiwan and branches in Europe and the USA. The young and vibrant company targets from mainstream to enthusiast MB segments for different kinds of users, owning reputation around the world market with its reliability and proficiency.


Here’s a quick comparison between AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 7900 XT, RX 7900 XTX and the Radeon RX 7900 GRE (in red).

Memory Speed 16 Gbps 18 Gbps 20 Gbps 20 Gbps
TBP 300W 260W 315W 355W


As I mentioned earlier, the graphics card uses an factory-overclocked GPU with Boost/Game clocks running at 2333/1972 Mhz respectively.  So for cooling, the card comes with triple fan design with 3 striped ring fans, a reinforced metal frame and stylish metal backplate.

I’m expecting some decent performance from the ASRock Radeon RX 7900 GRE Steel Legend 16GB OC Graphics Card. In terms of performance, it should sit nicely between the RX 7800 XT and the RX 7900 XT,  and should be comparable to a GeForce RTX 4070 SUPER.

We’ll be testing this graphics card using our tested rig, which is comprised of an Intel Core i9-14900K sitting on an Asus ROG Strix Z790-E Gaming WiFi motherboard, along with 32GB of DRR5-7200 ram.

Let’s jump straight in and start by taking a look at the specifications of the graphics card on our next page.

You can buy something similar, the ASRock Radeon RX 7800 XT Steel Legend graphics card for around USD $625 from Amazon –
