RX 7900 XTX Aqua OC, a card to be integrated into a custom watercooling!
With this model, ASRock offers us a card with a full cover waterblock for cooling. As for the retails models, it will directly cool the memory, the GPU, and the power stage of the card. Moreover, this is the kind of card that must be integrated directly into a custom loop, do not use it as is, you risk problems!
Otherwise, the brand offers a custom PCB consisting of 22 power supply phases. These are made of Japanese polymer capacitors, 100A inductors and SPS Dr.MOS.
In terms of frequency, of course, with all this gear, it is not surprising to find a factory overclocked card. The GPU will then reach 2680 MHz in boost against 2500 MHz for the reference card. Nevertheless, no work has been done on the memory, which still works at 20 Gbps.
As for the connectivity, AMD requires three 8-pin PCIe connectors. Here, no 12VHPWR as with NVIDIA, there is no risk of melting your PC as a result of a bad cable connection. Finally, the video part has one HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 2.1.
Finally, considering the thickness of the card (22 mm), we would have liked to have a single slot model!
For the price, obviously, the Guru3D title seems to mention $1149 !
