In a very brief teaser, AMD this afternoon has released a picture of their first Radeon RX 6000 video card.

No further details about the card are given, but based on the sizable triple fan design and dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors, it stands to reason that we’re looking at one of AMD’s high-end card designs. Overall the design looks reminicant of the Radeon VII, which is not terribly surprising since that is the last high-end (high-powered) video card released by AMD.

Don’t be surprised if we see more teasers over the coming weeks, as AMD gears up for its October CPU and GPU presentations. AMD will be holding its “Next Generation Radeon Graphics” keynote on October 28th at noon Eastern.

    Good eye, Sapphire designs all of AMD's reference cards. Reply

    The other manufacturers design other AMD reference cards. Msi, Asus, His, Xfx, powercolor...etc Reply

    Solid fans and an attractive shroud.

    It's also a picture of a massive heatsink and power delivery capable of drawing 300W from the PSU alone, which tells us that at least one of their products will be playing in the same TDP ballpark as the 3080.

    I hope they ditch the blowers from now on for the reference design. That should only be used on lower power single slot cards. This way buyers don't have to choose between a loud blower for the initial batch or wait a couple months for partners to release this same design.

    They used this fan based reference design with Radeon VII then went back to blower for 5700 (XT) reference cards

    The blower design is cheaper overall - you can get the required airflow from a single fan and thus the required cooling from a fairly cheap heatsink with tight fins. Fingers crossed that's dying a death now that we don't get $300 upper-mid-range GPUs anymore. Reply

    I own a reference 5700XT 50th Ann--bought July 9, 2019--and the only time I can hear the blower is when enter the driver and turn up the fans deliberately...yes, then it's loud. But leaving the fan setting to automatic, I can game for hours and never hear it. I doubt they'll do another blower--not because it doesn't work or because it's "too loud," but because so many apparently *think* it's too loud...;) I actually like the idea of a goodly portion of the heat blown outside the case. Also, I wonder if AMD will even do reference designs for RDNA2. My card has been fine for the last year +, so I hope so. Reply

    I guess the game with the settings you're running isn't using the card 100% which is probably the case most of the time as most people don't push their cards to the max like a benchmark program would. But if you're using your card for compute or rendering then you'll hear nothing but blower. I've got 2 Vega 64s in two cases and with 4 of them running full steam, they are very, very loud Reply

    Three fans and a shroud. You kinda like it. Looks about as generic as they come. Kind of like every other release. Reply

    What's the alternative? Reply

    I guess what Nvidea did for the new card's founder's editions. Reply
