There have been rumors prior to Powercolor's perhaps a little too quick announcement. Certain details live up to the rumours, but in a slightly unusual style, Powercolor has thus lifted the veil on the card's full specifications before even AMD has been able to publish the card. The card has subsequently been removed from the Powercolor website again, but not before they were quick on the keys at VideoCardz.com and secured the information.
The new card was revealed in the form of Powercolor's RX 7800 XT Red Devil card. It comes with a new RDNA3 GPU with 3840 Stream Processors. That number is the same as the previous generation RX 6800 (non XT). This means that we get a new card that comes with fewer Stream Processors than the RX 6800 XT, which has 4608.
The card uses a not yet officially presented Navi 32 GPU.
The new Red Devil card lands with a clock speed of 2255 Mhz during gaming and a boost clock of 2565 MHz. It is a notch more than the reference speed, which AMD specifies at 2210 Mhz and 2520 MHz respectively. As the rumors had talked about prior to the unveiling, the card comes with 16GB GDDR6 RAM on a 256-bit memory bus.
It coincides nicely with the RX 7900 GRE graphics card launched last month in the Chinese market.
The design on the card very nicely follows the design on previous Red Devil cards. This time it comes with a triple fan setup with three 100mm fans, which, together with eight heatpipes and a copper heatsink, should help keep the GPU and VRM cooling during use.
It is the classic black and red style, which is also repeated here on the RX 7800 XT Red Devil card. The short reveal on Powercolor's website did not give specific details about the card's power configuration, but it comes with a two eight-pin PCIe connector and Powercolor recommends that you have an 800W power supply.
