First of all, we will say that the fact that two different heatsink designs are shown does not mean that AMD will market both, or at least not to the same GPU (actually, it may be two different GPU types, because as we will tell you next, one heatsink is visible much better than the other).
From heatsinks to two sections of the Radeon RX 6000
To begin with we have this image that you can see below and that matches the real picture of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series with RDNA2. You can see the same heatsink we have already seen in the supply of Fortnite, which has a double PCI slot, a triple fan with a large block of aluminum sheets with air intake and two 8-pin PCI-Express connectors needed to supply it.
This image is accompanied by a Fortnite presentation, an AMD-published commercial image, and the first offer that appeared on the web. In these pictures we can see a new fan design with overseas connected features, such as ASUS Axial-Tech fans, which direct all air flow by connecting (around the axis) towards the heat sink, which appears to be located all over the PCB.
In addition to the standard AMD red and black colors, this heatsink incorporates silver-colored accents into the outer metal casing, as well as bright chrome chunks and diamond cuts that add a violent yet beautiful heatsink. The fact is that AMD seems to have come a long way in the design of this heatsink, at least in terms of aesthetics.
What is new now is this alternative offer, as we said earlier without a doubt it is another Radeon RX 6000 Series but it does not have to be high in the GPU range of this upcoming RDNA2 format, and in fact AMD will leave this heatsink what we have seen above the top models and this is what we will show you it is below the others, because as you will see it is simple (and cheap to produce).
The other design seems to have a slightly shorter PCB, and has two fans instead of three, where they put a large R in the middle to leave the space empty. In any composition and the fans used are the same, only that by having a short PCB, they remove the fan from the heatsink.
All indications are that the three-heatsink fan will be compatible with Radeon RX 6900 series, high-end generation, while dual heatsink is sure to end in Radeon RX 6800 y 6700 Series, intermediate and intermediate distance.
Anyway, everything is up in the air right now (not a heatsink, at least a three-fan model is legal), and AMD is expected to unveil its next generation of RDNA2 graphics cards on October 28, but from now until then more details about it will continue to arrive.
