Vastarmor and Dataland have yet to show off their Radeon RX 7900 GPUs
MSI isn’t the only company that has been slow to announce Radeon RX 7000 cards.
Dataland and Vastarmor, two Chinese graphics card manufacturers, have not released or even announced Radeon RX 7900 XT or RX 7900 XTX GPUs. A month after the introduction of these SKUs in cash. Interestingly, both companies were part of the Radeon RX 6000 and RX 6×50 launches on day one.
Dataland, better known for its X-Serial GPU line, is commonly found on e-commerce sites in China. These are highly customized designs with additional factory overclocking. The absence of a Radeon RX 7900 GPU from Dataland means that the company did not even participate in the creation of its own “semi-annual” design with AMD MBA (Made by AMD) reference cooling, but with its own packaging. This was the case with the last generation of GPUs;
Vastarmor is a new GPU company that only appeared 2 years ago. At launch, the company was heavily promoted by AMD, immediately displayed alongside big brands such as ASUS, MSI or Gigabyte. A month after the Radeon RX 7900 launch, Vastarmor’s RX 7900 GPUs are nowhere to be seen. This is when AMD claimed the opposite not so long ago.
AMD Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards are expected to be available from AMD.com starting December 13, 2022, as well as from leading partners including ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, Sapphire, Vastarmor, XFX and Yeston starting in mid-December. The AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX has a SEP of $999 USD, while the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT has a SEP of $899 USD.

It’s worth noting that Vastarmor was even part of the Radeon RX 6950 XT launch, so a high-end GPU isn’t a new concept for this company either.
We hope to hear more from both GPU manufacturers about their plans for the Radeon 7000 series. Both companies may just be waiting for AMD to announce more affordable RDNA3 GPUs, which unfortunately isn’t happening yet.
