ASUS has introduced a new addition to its TUF series graphics cards, featuring the Radeon RX 7600 XT with a sophisticated cooling system designed for effective temperature control. This system includes three fans that activate when the GPU reaches a certain temperature threshold, ensuring optimal cooling. To prevent the card from bending over time, ASUS has reinforced its structure for added durability.
Priced at $379, the Radeon RX 7600 XT offers enhanced features such as increased total graphics power (TGP), higher clock speeds, and dual BIOS settings, justifying its premium over the standard edition. The cooling system operates based on specific temperature criteria, adjusting the fan speed according to the GPU's junction and memory temperatures.
The fans are set to maintain 1600 RPM under heavy load and will increase in speed to keep temperatures within the desired range. Should the GPU temperature stay below the target, the fan speed can decrease below 1600 RPM, and the fans will stop altogether if the temperature drops below the fan stop thresholds, resuming only when temperatures rise again.
This model requires dual 8-pin power connections and incorporates a 2.9-slot design with a triple-fan setup for comprehensive cooling. Additionally, unlike the reference model, ASUS's version includes a backplate, enhancing its aesthetic appeal.
From a hardware perspective, the graphics card requires a dual 8-pin power connector. It also features a triple -fan cooler within a 2-slot design. Notably, the reference card comes with a backplate. It's a classy looking product alright.The card offers ample connectivity with three DisplayPort 2.1 outputs and one HDMI 2.1 port and supports high refresh rates at high resolutions with AMD's Radiance Display engine.
