The TUF features a triple-fan cooler set within a 3-slot design and is powered by dual 8-pin PCIe connectors. For connectivity, it offers 3x DisplayPort 2.1 outputs and 1x HDMI 2.1 output. Leveraging AMD's Radiance Display engine, which supports DisplayPort 2.1, the card can achieve frame rates up to 480Hz in 4K and 165Hz in 8K. While not every user might utilize this high frame rate capability, AMD's decision to include the display connector provides a clear contrast to Nvidia's omission in their RTX 4000 series.
Design-wise, the RX 7000 series bears resemblance to the prior generation TUF cards, showcasing a black and silver aesthetic complemented by three fans. The OC variant of this card comes with a pre-set overclock, aligning with standard ASUS practices. However, users have the flexibility to further overclock by activating the OC mode profile in the GPU Tweak software. In this mode, the RX 7800 XT operates with a Game Clock of 2254 MHz and a Boost Clock of 2565 MHz.
The Radeon RX 7800 XT is equipped with 16GB/256-bit dedicated memory, suitable for contemporary games and graphic-heavy applications. We have reviewed a reference model from AMD. Central to the Radeon RX 7800 XT is the RDNA 3 GPU architecture from AMD, which offers enhanced performance, power efficiency, and features relative to earlier versions.
Both the Radeon RX 7700 XT and 7800 XT offer diverse connectivity options, featuring 3x DisplayPort 2.1 and 1x HDMI 2.1 outputs. With AMD's Radiance Display engine, the card supports DisplayPort 2.1, enabling frame rates as high as 480Hz in 4K and 165Hz in 8K.
The 236W TGP-rated graphics card necessitates a dual 8-pin power connector and is equipped with a 3-slot design 3-fan cooler. The reference card has a closed backplate. Additionally, ASUS has introduced the latest design fans for this series, which are larger and optimized to enhance airflow and static pressure while maintaining quiet operation.
