Did you like the weird THICC models from previous generations of the red chip developer? You should get acquainted with the Speedster Merc 319 models soon
The modest American company XFX was known in the past mainly thanks to its collaborations with NVIDIA, But in the modern age it has shifted its focus to the graphic processing products of AMD Exclusively, where supply and competition are relatively less - and it seems to continue to bulge in the field thanks to names and designs that are unlike anything else.
XFX decides to adopt the first generation of RDNA 2 of AMD Relatively moderately, with a focus on just one advanced design for theRadeon RX 6800 XT and theRadeon RX 6800 at this point (hopefully there is more in the planning) - under the name Speedster Merc 319 that makes even brands like Fatboy and THICC (or XXX Edition) from the past sound solid and logical all of a sudden.
Business in the front, party in the back
The model with the puzzling name is significantly longer than the reference versions of AMD And longer than many other modern video cards (almost 34 inches), with body Cooling Which needs up to three slots in the case and motherboard and with three fans running above it (the middle is smaller than the two on its sides) inside an elegant and somewhat restrained black metal casing. At the back you find a metal plate with a cut on its inside that will help the heat leave the heat sink faster in an area that protrudes beyond the printed circuit itself - and here is also the word Merc smeared as a kind of graffiti, in a strong contrast from the solid front design.
The Radeon RX 6800 XT Speedster Merc 319 features a single full-size HDMI 2.1 connection, a pair of DisplayPort 1.4 ports and one USB Type-C connector that also exists in the reference versions and is designed to provide a better unified response when used in conjunction with desktop virtual reality glasses. This model needs a pair of 8PIN power supply connections to operate, as part of a 330 watt power shell that is 10 percent higher than the official stated value in the models of AMD Itself - which is what allows it to provide a base frequency of 1,925MHz instead of 1,815MHz originally and an increased maximum boost frequency of 2,360MHz, instead of 2,250MHz originally.
The Radeon RX 6800 XT Speedster Merc 319 features an HDMI 2.1 connection and three DisplayPort 1.4 ports, without a Type-C connector, with the same cooling and similar massive dimensions and even with the same pair of 8PIN connections and a recommendation for use with power supplies of at least 750 watts - when translated Basic operation of 1,850MHz and a maximum boost frequency of 2,190MHz when using BIOS designed to provide maximum performance, compared to 1,700MHz as a base and 2,105 as a guaranteed turbo in reference versions designed by AMD Herself.
How about the new models of XFX, And how do they compare to the dedicated and exclusive models of the other actresses in the category to your liking? Let's talk about it with everyone in the comments.
