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.
Feeding the card is, of course, the PCIe slot and two 8-pin power headers. You might (and likely will) disagree with me, but after all the comments I seem to like the new 12VPWR connector better.
Dark accents enhance the card's appearance; hardly any LEDs are active on the card aside from an XFX logo. As stated, the DUAL BIOS at this time does not offer performance differentials.
The card's heatsink runs throughout the PCB, with a no opening on the backplate for the last fan to expel heat. Weighing roughly 1.5kg, the card features three DisplayPorts (DP 2.1) and a full-sized HDMI port (v2.1).
The reference design is fairly huge, reaching almost 34cm / and near three slots thick. The spinners keep the product cooled down whilst not being too noisy.
