Several manufacturers have already shown the custom designs of their AMD GPUs, but we will focus on the PowerColor Radeon RX 6800 XT Red Devil, as it is an exclusive partner of AMD and we are looking at something completely new and not the same cooling system that we could find on an Nvidia GPU adapted to another silicon.
The PowerColor Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU has a custom PCB with a 14+ 2 power stage VRM supported by a configuration of two 8+8 pin PCI-Express connectors, although all of this is hidden under a very generous aluminum radiator that makes the graphics card occupy not less than 3 PCI expansion slots. In addition, the GPU features 2 DisplayPort connectors, and 1 HDMI.
A triple fan configuration is mounted on this radiator and, imitating the Nvidia design, in the rear we have a backplate with a space for the fan at the rear end to expel the air through it. The information of the PowerColor Radeon RX 6800 XT Red Devil is completed with a switch to move between its Dual BIOS design (Overclock or Silent).
In addition, the software-configurable ARGB LED lighting could not be missed in the video card, and it keeps the USB Type-C connector together to video connections. An added bonus will be two BIOSes – there is a corresponding switch on the card.
It will be interesting to wait for its launch (November 25) and see how it behaves in terms of temperature with that huge aluminum radiator inside it, crossed by not less than seven copper heat pipes. And, of course, it is worth highlighting the design separately. The card has three luminous plastic elements on each side from the inner end, which makes the graphics card very beautiful.
