Based on the RDNA 2 architecture and designed to handle the graphical demands of 4K gaming as well as 1440p at high frame rates, the Gigabyte Radeon RX 6800 XT GAMING OC Graphics Card provides an immersive gaming experience with your PC games. The GPU features 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a 256-bit memory interface, offering improved performance and power efficiency over the previous RDNA-based generation.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs, such as DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1. HDMI 2.1 supports up to 48 Gb/s bandwidth and a range of higher resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K @ 60 fps, 4K @ 120 fps, and even up to 10K. The Radeon RX 6800 XT supports APIs such as DirectX 12 Ultimate and OpenGL. These APIs can take advantage of the GPU's 4608 Stream Processors to accelerate parallel computing tasks, taking some of the processing load off of the CPU.
For cooling, Gigabyte implemented the WINDFORCE 3X cooling system. It features three 80mm fans with unique blades, where the airflow is split by the triangular fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface. With alternate spinning, the fans reduce turbulence and increase air pressure. The 3D Active Fan provides semi-passive cooling and the fans will turn off when the GPU is in a low-load or low-power state. There are also seven composite copper heat pipes and a large copper plate with direct contact to the GPU and VRAM, which efficiently transfer heat. The extended heatsink design allows air flow to pass through, providing better heat dissipation. It also has RGB Fusion 2.0, which has 16.7 million customizable color options and a variety of lighting effects. You can also use it to synchronize with other AORUS devices.
