On November 3, AMD will officially lift the veil on its new RDNA 3 graphics cards, but before that, the next Radeon RX 7900 XT has already been unveiled in images on social networks.
Two images claiming to show an AMD RX 7900 XT graphics card were posted on Twitter by leaker 9550pro. you compare The red team’s new high-end graphics card (above) to the Radeon RX 6950 XT (below), the current flagship of the catalogue.
Despite the forthcoming presentation, we will probably have to wait until the beginning of December for all the new references to hit the market. So Nvidia would have a free hand to sell its RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 for the time being, but the new information about the Radeon RX 7900 XT could make some players wait.
The RX 7900 XT graphics card reveals all its secrets
As can be seen in the pictures, the card comes with a 2.5-slot cooler that is slightly thicker and contains three dual-axis fans with 9 blades each. These fans push air to a solid aluminum heatsink that sits under the hood and above key components like the GPU, VRAM, and VRMs.
The GPU in question has two 8-pin power connectors, suggesting that it is indeed a high-end card. Both 8-pin connectors are also consistent with AMD’s recent comments will not use the RTX 4090’s now famous 12VHPWR connector. As a reminder, dozens of 12V HPWR power connector adapters that Nvidia ships with the RTX 4090 recently caught fire. So to see AMD using an alternative is excellent news.
In total, the graphics card should be about 30 cm, compared to 27 cm on the RX 6950 XT. So the new Radeon RX 7900 XT will be slightly longer than the recent Intel ARC A770, which also measures 27cm, but would be slightly smaller than an RTX 4090, which measures 30.4cm. However, previous reports also seem to confirm this The RX 7900 XT comes with 20GB of VRAM, while a more powerful 7900 XTX offers 24GB of storage.
