New Radeon RX 6000 series GPU images leak onto the web

Next month, AMD plans to launch its RX 6000 series of graphics cards, bringing to the market their RDNA 2 architecture and one of the company’s largest generational leaps to date. 

Yesterday, AMD teased their RX 6000 series cooler for the first time, but thanks to JayzTwoCents, has unleased additional images of this cooler design onto the web. In addition to this, we have a look at a dual-fan variant of this new heatsink design, which will allegedly be used to create lower-end RDNA 2 graphics cards. 

AMD’s triple-fan cooler is likely to be used with AMD’s long-rumoured RX 6900 XT graphics card, utilising dual 8-pin power connectors. AMD’s lower-end dual-fan cooler will likely be used on smaller RX 6800 or 6700 series graphics cards, though this cooler design also appears to feature dual 8-pin power connectors. 

The Radeon RX 6000 series is due to be revealed on October 28th, two weeks before the launch of Microsoft’s Xbox Series X/S consoles. Both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S utilize semi-custom versions of AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture, a point which will be highlighted by AMD’s marketing department heavily. RDNA 2 is the architecture that powers next-generation gaming, and AMD will market that point as hard as they can.

AMD’s dual-fan RX 6000 series graphics card cooler appears to come from the Team Rocket school of graphics card design, prominently displaying the letter R alongside red highlights. 

This cooler design looks a lot like what Nvidia delivered in 2018 with their RTX 20 series of Founders Edition products, though it is worth noting that AMD is using a custom fan design and uses a shrouded design that’s unique to Radeon.
