Custom Radeon RX 7900 cards are said to launch 1 to 2 weeks later.
According to the BoardChannels news, the December 13 launch of the Radeon RX 7900 series could initially be limited to “public models.” This, of course, refers to the MBA (Made by AMD) reference design offered by all major board partners.
It is said that size models appear 1 to 2 weeks later, without explanation. At the time of writing, no board partner has even shared the full specs of their cards, not to mention that only two manufacturers have shown their cards so far (ASUS and PowerColor).

In September, AMD confirmed that it is working with several board partners for the launch of the Radeon 7900. At least 10 brands will eventually have their RX 7900 designs. According to the same quote, those cards would be available from mid-December.
