PowerColor launches Radeon RX 7800/7700 XT graphics cards

Recently, at Gamescom 2023, AMD unveiled two novel graphics cards: the Radeon RX 7800 XT and Radeon RX 7700 XT, both crafted upon the Navi 32 GPU under the RDNA 3 architecture. PowerColor, one of AMD’s quintessential partners for over a decade, heralded the release of their corresponding graphics cards. In alignment with prior anticipations, PowerColor has introduced products from the Red Devil, Hellhound, and Fighter series.

The Red Devil series, positioned as PowerColor’s premium offering, incorporates a 16-phase power delivery and a 14-layer PCB design, boasting dual 8Pin external power connectors. In a nod to exclusivity, PowerColor has also launched the apex-tier Limited Edition Red Devil, which features a detachable backplate design. Enthusiasts are presented with the choice of a standard metallic backplate or a translucent Devil insignia backplate imbued with PowerColor’s RGB illumination.

The Hellhound series, meticulously curated for avid gamers, is endowed with a supremely efficient cooling system. Even during protracted, high-intensity operations, it ensures optimal thermal regulation while maintaining a whisper-quiet acoustic profile. Beyond the classic icy blue LED, PowerColor has elegantly woven in a crystalline purple illumination — the former exuding an aura of frigid elegance, while the latter resonates with an enigmatic allure. Users can effortlessly toggle between these hues with a side-mounted switch.

The Fighter series, tailor-made exclusively for the Radeon RX 7700 XT, doesn’t yet cater to the Radeon RX 7800 XT variant. It is equipped with a highly efficient cooling mechanism, ensuring reliable hardware operation and striking a harmonious balance between performance and cost.

The Radeon RX 7800 XT, furnished with Navi 32, boasts 60 CUs, translating to 3,840 stream processors. It features an Infinity Cache of 64MB, coupled with 16GB of GDDR6 video memory, a memory bandwidth of 256-bit, and a memory speed of 19.5 Gbps. The entire card has a power draw of 263W. The Radeon RX 7700 XT’s Navi 32, having undergone a trim, houses 54 CUs or 3,456 stream processors. Its Infinity Cache is slightly reduced to 48MB, and it comes with 12GB of memory, a 192-bit memory bandwidth, and a memory speed downshifted to 18 Gbps, consuming 245W. Consistent with prior Radeon RX 7000 series products, both feature the DP 2.1 interface.
