PowerColor Radeon RX 7800 XT Red Devil Revealed – Features 16GB GDDR6 and 3840 Stream Processors

Did PowerColor do an oopsie? Recently, a page for the Red Devil Radeon RX 7800 XT graphics card went live on PowerColor’s site. The Radeon RX 7800 XT is an upcoming “enthusiast-class” gaming graphics card from AMD, based on its RDNA 3 architecture. Gamers and PC enthusiasts have wondered where AMD’s 7700XT and 7800 XT cards are. Well, expect these graphics cards to roll out in the coming weeks or months.

PowerColor RX 7800 XT Leaked or Revealed?

As far as I know, it’s not clear whether PowerColor intentionally or accidentally leaked the upcoming Radeon RX 7800 XT Red Devil. AMD has not officially announced a specific GPU, and the only clue AMD gave about an enthusiast-class GPU is when AMD’s CEO Lisa Su said that such gaming GPUs are coming soon in her Q2-2023 financial results call.

According to Lisa Su:
“In gaming graphics, we expanded our Radeon 7000 GPU series in the second quarter with the launch of our mainstream RX 7600 cards for 1080p gaming. We are on track to further expand our RDNA 3 GPU offerings with the launch of new, enthusiast-class Radeon 7000 series cards in the third quarter,”

The PowerColor RX 7800 XT Red Devil features 3840 Stream Processors and 16GB of GDDR6 memory. It has a boost clock speed of up to 2520MHz and a game clock speed of 2210 MHz. Its memory has a clock speed of 18 Gbps and runs on a 256-bit memory interface. It will also require at least an 800W PSU and two PCIe 8-pin power connectors.

Below are some details from PowerColor’s site.

The Dominant Ruler in Gaming

The Red Devil conquers by relentlessly pushing its power to the limit. Built on AMD’s latest RDNA™ 3 architecture, PowerColor Red Devil RX 7800 XT is armed with a silent but efficient cooling solution to deliver an uncompromising performance and gaming experience. The Red Devil of this generation is designed based on the concept of the Devil’s Eye, its most frightening weapon that absorbs all lights in the underworld. The Red Devil came, the Red Devil saw, the Red Devil conquered.

Car-Grade Power Module DrMOS with iMON Real-Time Digital Monitoring

Red Devil adopts an 11+3+1 phase VRM design with DrMOS to power the GPU and an additional 2+1 phase specifically designated for the VRAM. New IMON technology monitors and reports each phase’s electric current and power consumption. By balancing the workload, the Red Devil ensures unparalleled stability and thermal protection during overclocking. In addition, high-quality car-grade polymer capacitors feature long-lasting durability and high conductivity, lowering power loss during transmission.

PowerColor Red Devil RX 7800 XT embraces an upgraded triple ringed-fan cooling solution (100 x 100 x 100mm), a set of 8 x 6φ heat pipes running through the heatsink, and a sleek copper plate directly touching the GPU while covering VRAM to transfer the heat rapidly; it also utilizes high-quality PCB that comes with the 11+3+1+2+1 phase VRM design, and DrMOS with IMON real-time digital monitoring built in, all together to guarantee the optimum cooling efficiency and stability when pushing to the limits. Red Devil is designed to seize every victory in the game.

Pricing and Availability

Since the RX 7800 XT is yet to be announced by AMD officially, we don’t have a word about its pricing at the moment. However, since the RX 7900 XT launched at $899 and the RX 7900 GRE is around $649, the RX 7800 XT may have a ~$500 launch price, more or less. It will undercut NVIDIA’s RTX 4070 and RTX 4070 Ti graphics cards at that price range.
