The RX 7800 XT features 60 Compute Units (CUs) and is equipped with 16 GB GDDR6 memory operating at 19.5 Gbps. The card has a dual 8-pin power connector and provides a boost frequency close to 2.60 GHz. Its board power is approximately 263W.
Both the Radeon RX 7000 Series and Nvidia's comparable GPUs possess built-in AV1 hardware encoding and decoding capabilities, making them more handy for streamers.
Dark and red accents enhance the card's appearance; no LEDs are active on the card. Here, you can also see the older 8-pin power connector header.
The card's heatsink runs throughout the PCB, with a no opening on the backplate for the last fan to expel heat. Weighing roughly 1kg, the card features three DisplayPorts (DP 2.1) and a full-sized HDMI port (v2.1).
The reference design is kept small, reaching almost 26cm / two slots thick. The spinners keep the product cooled down whilst not being too noisy.
