Gigabyte Releases New Radeon RX 7800/7700 XT Graphics Cards

Gigabyte unveiled their sophisticated new graphics cards, the Radeon RX 7800 XT GAMING OC 16G and Radeon RX 7700 XT GAMING OC 12G. The company asserts that these graphic marvels have undergone meticulous optimization, ensuring unparalleled performance and superlative thermal dispersion, guaranteeing gamers an impeccable 2K gaming experience. Like many of its counterparts in the graphics card industry, Gigabyte has embraced the same cooling technology for both products—despite their distinct specifications—owing to their shared lineage from the RDNA 3 architecture’s Navi 32 GPU, in an endeavor to achieve cost efficiency.

Both the Gigabyte Radeon RX 7800 XT GAMING OC 16G and Radeon RX 7700 XT GAMING OC 12G are fitted with the WindForce cooling system. This intricate mechanism encompasses three fans designed for bidirectional rotation, a copper base that has direct contact with the GPU and VRAM, and a composite copper heat pipe, all synergizing to maximize thermal efficiency. Furthermore, the cards exhibit a dual BIOS design, allowing aficionados to effortlessly oscillate between OC and SILENT modes, calibrated to optimal settings by Gigabyte.

In a nod to the aesthetic preferences of gamers, Gigabyte has incorporated RGB lighting on the flank of the graphic cards, which can be customized using the GIGABYTE CONTROL CENTER (GCC) software. Additionally, the revamped metal backplate boasts a robust structure, safeguarding against potential warping and damage. The ULTRA DURABLE certification stands testament to the premium materials employed, promising enhanced longevity.

The Radeon RX 7800 XT, embedded with Navi 32, possesses 60 CU, equating to 3,840 stream processors, an Infinity Cache of 64MB, and is outfitted with 16GB of GDDR6 video memory. The memory bandwidth stands at 256-bit with a memory speed of 19.5 Gbps, and the card’s total power consumption is 263W. In contrast, the Radeon RX 7700 XT features a slightly pared-down Navi 32 with 54 CU, amounting to 3,456 stream processors. Its Infinity Cache is set at 48MB, video memory at 12GB, a memory bandwidth of 192-bit, and a memory speed that reaches up to 18 Gbps, consuming 245W. Echoing the previous Radeon RX 7000 series, both models are equipped with a DP 2.1 interface.
