PowerColor officially reveals their RX Vega 56 Red Dragon

The TUL Corporation has unveiled their new PowerColor RX Vega 56 Red Dragon GPU, a graphics card which is designed to offer a low-cost option to the RX Vega lineup while still delivering stellar cooling performance. 

This goal was achieved thanks to the RX Vega 56 Red Dragon’s shortened PCB, which allows the rear GPU fan to push air through the card unhindered, with no PCB or backplate to constrain airflow over his GPU’s cooling fins. This compact PCB design is how PowerColor can achieve low operating temperatures while using a smaller overall heatsink design. 

When compared to PowerColor’s existing RX Vega 56 models this GPU will sit between AMD’s reference design and the RX Vega56’s Red Devil OC edition, though at this time PowerColor has not officially revealed the GPU’s base clock speed.

This GPU comes with a BIOS switch which allows this GPU to run in either a silent or overclocking mode, depending on the user’s preference. PowerColor says that this GPU will become available worldwide on March 28th.
