Gigabyte has announced several new GPUs for the Radeon series of Graphics cards, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800. Powered by RDNA 2 gaming architecture, there are a total of five graphics cards released. These are the AORUS 6800 XT MASTER Type C 16G, AORUS RX 6800 XT MASTER 16G, RX 6800 XT Gaming OC 16G, AORUS RX 6800 MASTER 16G, and RX 6800 Gaming OC 16G.
AORUS RX 6800 MASTER
With the MAX Covered cooling, it features 3 unique blade stack fans with a wind claw design and alternating fan spin so air pressure covers the heat sink. Gigabyte designed the heat dissipation area of the heat-sink to be larger than the previous generation. A big copper plate keeps in contact with the GPU and VRAM. Seven composite heat pipes connect to the plate and fins allowing for efficient heat dissipation; therefore allowing stable operation. A small, but powerful LCD monitor is embedded on the side of the graphics card. Users can set it in enthusiastic mode, text mode, or GIF mode. Using the Gigabyte software, users can edit all kinds of content, or set it in CHIBI Time to display a little falcon that changes every hour. RGB Fusion 2.0 allows users to also set lighting effects on the graphics card and LCD monitor. AORUS MASTER graphics cards feature aerospace grade PCB coating, DUAL BIOS quiet operation mode, and Ultra Durable components. This is the recommended card for enthusiasts who look for the ultimate performance.
GIGABYTE RX 6800 Gaming OC
The Gigabyte Gaming OC series uses the Windforce 3x cooling system. There are three unique fans, also spinning alternately like that in the MAX Covered cooling design. Composite copper heat pipes cool the GPU and VRAM. 3D Active Fan and screen cooling also adds in providing efficient heat dissipation. In addition, the fans are lubricated with graphene nano lubricant extending the fans’ life by 2.1 times, and reducing noise. RGB fusion 2.0 allows users to adjust the color of the light and other effects, and can synchronize with other AORUS devices. For gamers looking to get the most out of performance, this is the best choice.
All Gigabyte graphics cards use a multi-phase power supply to allow the MOSFET to operate at low temperatures. In addition, Ultra Durable certified chokes and capacitors give excellent performance and logner system life. A metal back plate provides strength to the overall structure, but also prevents the PCB from bending. AORUS Radeon RX 6800 X MASTER Type C 16G has one USB Type C, one HDMI and two DP video outputs. The other graphics cards have two HDMI and two DP video outputs
