The fresh design of GIGABYTE
We are in the midst of a difficult period in general in the world, and in the world of hardware in particular, and video card manufacturers continue to launch at least officially new models of video cards in home designs which will hopefully serve Gamers And content people for creation and acting.
Hardware giant GIGABYTE has made its own designs for the most advanced video cards availableAMD Currently offered under the Radeon brand, those that were launched recently but due to the situation did not get to see much air time. A pair of the most advanced graphics card models of AMD For gamers they are theRadeon RX 6800 XT and theRadeon RX 6900 XT which are equipped with 16 GB of זיכרון graphic.
God-Radeon RX 6900 XT model GAMING OC of GIGABYTE It is a particularly prestigious video card and its current price is about NIS 7,200 in Israel, if you can find it in stock. Its original recommended price is $ 999, which translates to about NIS 4,000 after taxes. This video card is designed to compete mainly withGeForce RTX 3090 which is significantly more expensive with an official price tag of $ 1,499 and a standard price of about NIS 11,500 (OCH).
The model of GIGABYTE Contains 3 external power inputs and supplies power for the RX 6900 XT but for the RX 6800 XT this amount has been reduced to 2 "only".
As well, used in the advanced cooling of GIGABYTE, These video cards are quite thick and take up 2.5 slots on the motherboard, for your attention.
These video cards have four display ports, two HDMI 2.1 and two DisplayPort 1.4. To remind you, HDMI 2.1 is more advanced in terms of traffic than the two, and is capable of supporting screens 8K At 60Hz.
B-GIGABYTE Recommend a power supply of at least 750W for the RX 6800 XT and at least 850W for the RX 6900 XT. The heat envelope of these video cards is 300W and 350W respectively. Admittedly, below you will actually see the power differences of the exam system.
The RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT graphics cards are based on the new RDNA2 architecture of AMD. Other products that contain graphics cores from this architecture are the new Playstation 5 game consoles andXbox Series X. These advanced graphic cores are manufactured in a 7 nm factory process TSMC Exactly the same production lines where processors RYZEN The new 5000 are manufactured. As a result of the great demand for silicone and the global situation, you can guess how difficult and how expensive it is to manufacture such products.
The main technical difference between these pair of video cards is that the RX 6900 XT contains Core Full with 80 graphics transfer groups while the RX 6800 XT contains Core Incomplete with 72 processing groups. The operating frequencies of the graphics cores are almost identical, with 2045MHz for the RX 6800 XT and 2050MHz for the RX 6900 XT.
An interesting feature that can be found in these video cards, in addition to their advanced heatsink of course, is a BIOS switch. This switch will decide with which fan settings these video cards will work when the computer is up and running. Honestly, as the video card industry continues to advance, I find less point in such a feature we got at a time when changing settings through software was more difficult and less flexible and accessible. The video cards will be tested in an OC profile that has a slightly more tuned fan adjustment suitable for maintaining high frequencies.
There is a metal back brace and thermal pads that connect the back of the graphic core to the same brace. When connecting to the motherboard, of course, the logo of GIGABYTE Will look in the right orientation.
Without exaggerating, we will move on to the performance tests that mainly show the performance of these video cards using an up-to-date driver and compared to the video cards from AMD's default models and those of NVIDIA.
