ASUS has become the first brand to reveal custom RX 7900 series graphics cards
Following the reveal of AMD's Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX graphics cards, ASUS has revealed their first custom RX 7900 series GPU designs, the RX 7900 XTX TUF Gaming and RX 7900 XT TUF Gaming.
With a triple slot heatsink and three 8-pin PCIe power inputs, ASUS' RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT TUF series GPUs are capable of handling more power and dissipating more heat than AMD's reference GPU designs. Better still, this GPU will not need any clunky adaptors to power it, just standard 8-pin PCIe power cables. On top of that, like all RX 7900 series GPUs, ASUS TUF Gaming modes will support DisplayPort 2.1, a feature that no Nvidia RTX 40 series GPU supports.
ASUS' RX 7900 XTX TUF Gaming graphics card will feature 12288 stream processors and 24GB of GDDR6 memory while their RX 7900 model will feature 10752 stream processors and 20GB of GDDR6 memory. Sadly, ASUS has not revealed the clock speeds of their RX 7900 series GPU models, though we expect ASUS' OC model to have a higher power target than AMD's reference designs, hence the three 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
