PowerColor Leak reveals AMD’s Radeon RX 7800 XT

PowerColor Leak reveals AMD's Radeon RX 7800 XT

PowerColor accidentally reveals AMD’s Radeon RX 7800 XT, and all of its specifications  

PowerColor has accidentally revealed AMD’s Radeon RX 7800 XT, a new RDNA 3 based graphics card that will finally plug the cap between AMD’s RX 7900 series and their lower-end Radeon RX 7600. 

On their website, PowerColor briefly revealed their Radeon RX RX 7800 XT Red Devil graphics card, a 2.2 slot triple-fan design that features 16GB of GDDR6 memory, and a beefy 11+3+1+2+1 phase VRM design. The graphics card also comes with a factory overclock, though the GPU also features a “Quiet Mode” that runs at AMD’s reference Radeon RX 7800 XT clock speeds. 

When looking at this graphics card’s specifications, AMD’s Radeon RX 7800 XT appears to be a RDNA 3 version of AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 (non-XT) graphics card, with both GPUs featuring 16GB of GDDR6 memory over a 256-bit memory bus and 3840 stream processors. That said, the RX 7800 XT will ship with AMD’s enhanced RDNA 3 architecture, and much higher core clock speeds than AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 non-XT. With this in mind, we expect this GPU to easily outperform AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 XT. 

     PowerColor Red Devil RX 7800 XT embraces an upgraded triple ringed-fan cooling solution (100 x 100 x 100mm), a set of 8 x 6φ heatpipes running through the heatsink, and a sleek copper plate directly touching the GPU while covering VRAM to rapidly transfer the heat; it also utilizes high quality PCB that comes with the 11+3+1+2+1 phase VRM design, and DrMOS with IMON real-time digital monitoring built in, all together to guarantee the optimum cooling efficiency and stability when pushing to the limits. Red Devil is designed to seize every victory in the game.

When compared to AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 non-XT, AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 7800 XT features game and boost clock speeds that are around 400 MHz higher. Add on AMD’s increase per-CU performance with RDNA 3, and gamers can expect to see a huge leap in performance over AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 series GPUs.  

Currently, it is unknown how much AMD’s Radeon RX 7800 XT will cost, though it is likely that AMD will target Nvidia’s RTX 4070 graphics card with this new model, highlighting the Radeon RX 7800 XT’s additional VRAM as a key selling point.

PowerColor Leak reveals AMD's Radeon RX 7800 XT

AMD has confirmed that they will release new “enthusiast-class” RDNA 3 graphics cards in the near future, and rumour has it that AMD plans to reveal Radeon RX 7700 XT and Radeon RX 7800 XT graphics cards at Gamescom. If this is true, we can expect AMD to officially reveal these new RDNA 3 based graphics cards very soon.
