XFX's RX 7900 XTX GPU has leaked, revealing a sleek black/silver gaming monster
Another custom Radeon RX 7900 XTX design has been spotted, with today's leak time coming from @momomo_us, who has revealed images of XFX' RX 7900 XT and 7900 XTX MERC 310 graphics cards.
Both of XFX's new RX 7900 series MERC 310 designed feature similar heatsink designs and the same display outputs, though the RX 7900 XTX model features a stronger set of power inputs with three 8-pin power connectors. The RX 7900 XT MERC 310 features only two 8-pin power inputs, potentially giving the graphics card a lower maximum power limit for overclocking.
While XFX's design is similar to their RX 6000 series MERC series models, XFX's RX 7900 XT/XTX design does appear to have a new backplate design that maximises surface area and offers more space for airflow. XFX are obviously taking cooling seriously with their custom RX 7900 designs.
Both XFX's RX 7900 series MERC 310 designs feature three DisplayPort 2.1 outputs and a single HDMI 2.1 connector, making XFX another AMD board partner that has opted not to utilise a USB Type-C connection for display connectivity. AMD's reference models feature two DisplayPort connections, a USB Type-C connector and an HDMI 2.1 port.
At this time the pricing, clock speeds, and release date of XFX's custom RX 7900 series graphics cards remain unknown. While AMD's RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX are due to launch next week, it is unknown if XFX's custom graphics card models are ready for retail availability.
