Like most other GPU manufacturers, ASRock’s currently preparing several custom Radeon RX 6800 series models, readying themselves for the launch of AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture. 

Thanks to Videocardz, we now have a first look at ASRock’s Radeon RX 6800 XT Taichi graphics card, a 2.5-slot thick graphics card which features a triple fan heatsink design and RGB elements on the graphics card’s central fan and backplate. 

Unlike most other custom RX 6800 XT models, ASRock’s RX 6800 XT Taichi appears to feature three 8-pin PCIe power connectors, one more than most competing models. This suggests that ASRock may be shipping their Taichi with a higher maximum power limit than their competition, potentially unlocking additional overclocking performance. 

At this time, it is unknown whether or not ASRock has a Phantom Gaming Radeon RX 6800 XT in the works. If they do, their Phantom Gaming will likely act as a lower-end model with dual 8-pin power inputs.

Like AMD’s reference Radeon RX 6800 XT, ASRock’s Taichi supports HDMI 2.1, dual DisplayPort outputs and features a single USB Type-C display connection. This graphics card also features a BIOS switch, which presumably switches the graphics card between Performance Mode (P BIOS) and Quiet Mode (Q BIOS).

ASRock’s Taichi model will likely launch as a premium model for the brand, placing the graphics card at an MSRP that’s higher than AMD’s $649 (US) reference model.
