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 280W.



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. The card is equipped with an extensive heatsink, and a small vent on the backplate allows the final fan to expel hot air externally.  The card features a substantial heatsink, with a small opening on the backplate designed for the last fan to expel hot air. It has a weight slightly above 1kg. The card comes with a Dual BIOS feature; the default BIOS operates in performance mode, while the secondary BIOS, can be used for tweaking with Sapphire's proprietary software to tweak a bit more. The pricing details of this card remain undisclosed, but predictions place it at around $529. 


Feeding the card is, of course, the PCIe slot, and two 8-pin power headers.  The graphics card features a three-slot design and supports 4x displays with 2x HDMI 2.1 port and 2x DP 2.1 ports.


The card's heatsink runs throughout the PCB, with a no opening on the backplate for the last fan to expel heat.
