Gigabyte launches their RX 6600 XT Eagle and Gaming OC graphics cards

Tripple fan heatsinks for 160W GPUs. Is this overkill?

Gigabyte launches their RX 6600 XT Eagle and Gaming OC graphics cards

Following the reveal of AMD's RX 6600 XT graphics cards, Gigabyte has confirmed that they will be releasing two custom RX 6600 XT models at launch, their RX 6600 XT Eagle and RX 6600 XT Gaming OC, both of which feature triple-fan heatsinks. 

AMD's RX 6600 XT lacks an AMD reference model, so it falls to AMD's partners to create their own RX 6600 XT graphics card models. Both of Gigabyte's GPUs will become available on August 11th, though Gigabyte has not been able to provide us with MSRP pricing for these GPUs at this time.

Despite the fact that AMD's rated TBP for their RX 6600 XT is 160W, both of Gigabyte's custom RX 6600 XT GPUs feature triple fan heatsinks, which should be overkill for a graphics card within this TDP range. Triple fan coolers are often used by 350+W GPUs like Nvidia's RTX 3090, though it is worth noting that higher TBP GPUs will often feature stronger underlying heatsink designs. Even so, Gigabyte appears to be going nuts with its RX 6600 XT cooling solutions.

Press Release - GIGABYTE Launches AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT Series Graphics Cards

GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of premium gaming hardware, today announced new AMD Radeon™ RX 6600 XT graphics cards with AMD RDNA™ 2 gaming architecture. The Radeon™ RX 6600 XT GAMING OC PRO 8G, Radeon™ RX 6600 XT GAMING OC 8G and Radeon™ RX 6600 XT EAGLE 8G graphics cards are engineered to deliver incredible high-framerate 1080p gaming performance.

The graphics cards in the GAMING OC series feature the WINDFORCE cooling system and RGB Fusion 2.0, making them the best choice for performance-minded gamers. The EAGLE series is the best choice for those who desire a unique design, while maintaining both efficiency and durability

GAMING OC - 
High Performance and Efficient Cooling.

The GIGABYTE WINDFORCE 3X cooling system features three unique blade fans, alternate spinning, composite copper heat pipes in direct contact with the GPU, 3D active fans and Screen cooling that work together to provide efficient heat dissipation. The middle fan spins in reverse to optimize airflow for heat dissipation, enabling more efficient performance. These cooling technologies keep the graphics card temperatures low at all times, resulting in higher and more stable performance.

WINDFORCE fans utilize graphene nano lubricant, which can extend fan life by 2.1 times, delivering nearly the lifespan of the double ball bearing while providing quiet operation. RGB fusion 2.0 allows users to adjust the color of the lights and various special effects, and synchronize with other AORUS devices. The metal back plate not only strengthens the overall structure of the graphics card, but also prevents the PCB from bending or sustaining damage. Due to its ULTRA DURABLE certified components, advanced cooling technology and custom RGB lighting, GAMING OC is the best choice for performance gamers.

EAGLE - Unique and Durable

EAGLE graphics cards also feature WINDFORCE 3X cooling technology, 3D active fans, Screen cooling, and graphene nano lubricant, enabling optimal heat dissipation and performance. The design of EAGLE graphics cards is inspired by science-fiction with mechanical materials, a transparent cover, and a bright logo. In addition, the backplate not only strengthens the overall structure of the graphics card, but also prevents the PCB from bending or sustaining damage.

GIGABYTE graphics cards use a multi-phase power supply, providing over-temperature protection and load balancing for each MOSFET and allowing the MOSFET to operate at a lower temperature. The ULTRA DURABLE-certified chokes and capacitors provide excellent performance and longer system life.

If you're going to charge stupid money for mid-range cards might as well put high-end cooling on them.Quote

Might be overkill, but that will result in near silent gaming as well Quote
