PowerColor Red Devil RX 6800 XT
We’re up against a custom-designed graphics card that takes up three slots, so it’s not another model with the standard AMD design. This graphics card uses a 16 phase VRM with DMOS (14 + 2 phases) which are powered by one pair of 8-pin PCIe connectors. The back plate of the card bears the illuminated Red Devil logo.
The Red Devil comes with a aluminum air cooling system
Special edition with USB-C connectivity
Connectivity is the same as the standard AMD model: three DisplayPort ports and one HDMI port. but PowerColor will launch a limited edition of each card, which will include a USB-C port. We don’t know the specs for this port, so we don’t know if it’s a USB-C Alt DP, but we assume that if from the moment the Limited Edition loses any of the ports DisplayPort and remains at 2.
Although PowerColor announced the version of the Red Devil RX 6800 XT, on the product website we can see indications on the existence of the model Red Devil RX 6800.
And if you don’t want the card to make noise all the time, include a switch that allows you to use two different BIOSes: one configured to be completely quiet and the other for him intenso game and for uses where we don’t need the enormous graphics power of the new AMD architecture.
Speeds and availability
As for clock speeds, PowerColor has yet to reveal whether the Red Devil RX 6800 XT runs at the same clock speed as the standard AMD design or at slightly higher speeds thanks to a custom design.
Regarding the availability of this card, everything indicates that we will see it soon on the market 25 november and a little higher price than the standard AMD model.
