AMD Radeon joined Twitter late Monday afternoon to reveal what appears to be an absolute monster for graphics cards and a brand new cooler design. AMD fans can also take a closer look at Fortnite cards. AMD Battle Arena In the same game. If you want to log in and check your card, you can use the code “8651-9841-1639”.
Let’s first look at the design of the new Radeon RX 6000 series. Upcoming @ AMD # RDNA2 graphics cards will feature a whole new cooler design that will allow you to learn from every angle on Fortnite Creative Island. 8651-9841-1639. pic.twitter.com/KGQAOXDivZSeptember 14, 2020
Fortunately, if you don’t want to download Fortnite and go to AMD’s custom maps, some friendly users share many screenshots on Twitter.
I took some screenshots for those who are interested. The code in the post took me to the matchmaking hub where there was 5877-8461-8283 on the wall pic.twitter.com/pdysKfK7rcSeptember 14, 2020
AMD doesn’t share anything about specs or performance, but at least the company is confident that it’s using the Radeon RX 6000 series as the name for future graphics cards. The rest will have to wait until October 28th to make sure.
Let’s make some speculation anyway
AMD doesn’t share hard specs or performance information, but that doesn’t mean that looking at the photos doesn’t make you a little confused about future graphics cards.
The first thing you’ll notice right away is that whatever AMD card you have, the probably flagship reference board uses a triple fan design. This is not the exact new frontier that AMD covers. The 2018 Radeon VII also had a triple fan reference design, which means it’s likely to be a slightly suspicious graphics card.
For example, the AMD Radeon RX 5000 series, led by the RX 5700 XT, all used a single-fan blower-style reference cooler. That decision wasn’t exactly popular, but the cards weren’t too much of a problem to keep them calm, at least in our tests. The move to a triple-fan design could indicate that the graphics card needs to be cooled significantly because the power requirements are much higher or AMD is actually pushing the clock higher (or both). There is.
Another thing you can collect from this image is a 2 x 8 pin PCIe power connection. This configuration can supply up to 375W, so to be honest, I’m not very sure how much juice the graphics card consumes. Both RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 require the same power connector, even if you need to connect to them 12-pin adapter for Founders Edition.
AMD has shown that it doesn’t have a 12-pin power connector, which would be great news for those who don’t want to live a dongle on their desktop computer.
I’m currently downloading Fortnite for more details, but I’ll update this article if there are important details I’ve missed.
