12V-2×6 on an AMD GPU? ASRock launches AI-focused Radeon RX 7900 series GPUs at Computex

ASRock is bringing 12V-2×6 power to AMD’s Radeon GPU lineup for the first time

ASRock are ready to showcase two new Radeon RX 7000 series GPUs at Computex 2024. These new AMD GPUs will feature blower-style coolers and 12V-2×6 power connectors, and arrive in the form of Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX WS (WorkStation) series GPUs.

These new workstation-grade graphics cards are intended for multi-GPU, AI-focused hardware configurations. Their blower-style heatsinks push hot air out the back of these AI workstations, and their 12V-2×6 cables minimise cable clutter within these multi-GPU AMD systems.

With 24GB and 20GB of GDDR6 memory respectively, these new Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards are great for memory intensive workloads. These GPUs are much more affordable than Nvidia GPUs with similar amounts of memory. This makes AMD’s Radeon hardware very cost-effective for users.

In anticipation of the arrival of the AI era, ASRock launches the ASRock Radeon RX 7900 XTX WS 24 GB and ASRock Radeon RX 7900 XT WS 20 GB, supporting multi-GPU collaborative computing. ASRock Radeon RX 7900 WS series graphics cards are powered by the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX7900 XT GPU. Designed for multi-card parallel computing and artificial intelligence acceleration, Radeon RX 7900 WS series graphics cards are featuring a VAPOR-CHAMBER heatsink, efficiency blower fan and 2-slot thickness. Furthermore, thanks to the single horizontal 12V-2×6 power connector, to install couple of ASRock Radeon RX 7900 XT WS series graphics cards become much easily due to less power cords.

These new graphics cards are workstation-grade products. Yes, they will work as gaming graphics cards. Even so, gamers will have a better experience with gaming-focused products with larger heatsinks and a more standard heatsink design. Additionally, they can avoid any of the potential problems that come with the 12V-2×6 power standard.
