In a recent tween from AMD Radeon, the company teased us with a photo of their upcoming Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs. To be exact, what we are looking here is the cooler design for AMD’s reference graphics card. The upcoming RX 6000 series GPUs will feature AMD’s new RDNA 2 architecture. It is also expected that AMD will reveal more on October 28, as part of the company’s “New Journey” event.
AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series Graphics Cards
The new cooler design for the reference RX 6000 series cards definitely looks better compared to the previous design. A triple-fan cooler with two 8-pin power connector could indicate that this graphics card card is either power hungry or produces a lot of heat; perhaps both. Most probably this is the Radeon RX 6900X that has been reported in leaks and rumors.
If you are playing Fortnite and go to AMDCreative Island at 8651-9841-1639, you will find the graphics card there. The card has two DisplayPorts, an HDMI and interestingly a USB Type-C port.
NVIDIA has USB Type-C port on their RTX 20 series cards. So AIC partners implemented them but some didn’t. With the new RTX 30 series cards, NVIDIA has removed the USB Type-C port. I’m not sure why AMD decided to add a USB Type-C port on their RX 6000 series cards. Perhaps they are targetting VR gamers as well.
For now, these are just teasers for the upcoming event. So far, the only confirmed features we know that the RX 6000 series will have are DirectX 12 Ultimate support and ray tracing. Expect that we will learn more as October 28th draws near. I’m pretty sure leaks and rumors will intensity as well.
Take a first look at the design of the new Radeon RX 6000 series. Our upcoming @AMD #RDNA2 graphics cards will feature a brand new cooler design, and you can study every angle yourself on our Fortnite Creative Island. 8651-9841-1639. pic.twitter.com/KGQAOXDivZ— Radeon RX (@Radeon) September 14, 2020
