ASUS Announces ROG Strix and TUF Gaming AMD Radeon‚ĄĘ RX 6800 Series Graphics Cards

REMONT, Calif.Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ ‚ÄĒ ASUS today announ¬≠ced a new lin¬≠e¬≠up of ROG Strix and TUF Gam¬≠ing AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ 6000 Series gra¬≠phics cards. The new AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6000 Series and the under¬≠ly¬≠ing RDNA‚ĄĘ 2 GPU gam¬≠ing archi¬≠tec¬≠tu¬≠re herald a new era of Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ gra¬≠phics power. To get the most out of the¬≠se exci¬≠ting new GPUs, ASUS engi¬≠neers have been hard at work deve¬≠lo¬≠ping ROG Strix and TUF Gam¬≠ing gra¬≠phics cards that deli¬≠ver the high per¬≠for¬≠mance, low tem¬≠pe¬≠ra¬≠tures and quiet ope¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on that enthu¬≠si¬≠asts expect.

The ROG Strix LC Rade¬≠on RX 6800 XT puts a big chill on Big Navi

The ROG Strix LC Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 XT fuses the power of air and liquid coo¬≠ling out of the box.

The Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 XT is one of the most powerful GPUs that AMD has ever built. As ASUS engi¬≠neers began to sketch out the ROG Strix card, the raw power of the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 XT spur¬≠red design of a coo¬≠ling sys¬≠tem that could unleash its full poten¬≠ti¬≠al. During this pro¬≠cess, the ASUS team natu¬≠ral¬≠ly tur¬≠ned to liquid coo¬≠ling. PC enthu¬≠si¬≠asts the world over are alre¬≠a¬≠dy fami¬≠li¬≠ar with the bene¬≠fits of all-in-one liquid coo¬≠ling sys¬≠tems for their CPUs, and many of them have even added simi¬≠lar sys¬≠tems to their gra¬≠phics cards using after¬≠mar¬≠ket kits to pur¬≠sue the outer limits of GPU performance. 

The ROG Strix LC Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 XT fuses the power of air and liquid coo¬≠ling out of the box. It is desi¬≠gned from the ground up with a cus¬≠tom liquid coo¬≠ling modu¬≠le that‚Äôs spe¬≠ci¬≠fi¬≠cal¬≠ly tail¬≠o¬≠red to the needs of a gra¬≠phics card. A lar¬≠ge cold pla¬≠te cools both the GPU die and the GDDR6 memo¬≠ry modu¬≠les that ring the chip. The heat from tho¬≠se com¬≠pon¬≠ents is trans¬≠fer¬≠red direct¬≠ly into the liquid coo¬≠ling loop rather than into the case‚Äôs inter¬≠nal envi¬≠ron¬≠ment. At the other end of the loop, a 240 mm radia¬≠tor strikes the right balan¬≠ce bet¬≠ween high coo¬≠ling poten¬≠ti¬≠al and broad com¬≠pa¬≠ti¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty with the moun¬≠ting points available in today‚Äôs PC cases. A low-noi¬≠se blower fan and low-pro¬≠fi¬≠le heat sink within the shroud of the gra¬≠phics card ensu¬≠res the power-deli¬≠very cir¬≠cuit¬≠ry stays cool.

Howe¬≠ver it is moun¬≠ted in a PC, the ROG Strix LC Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 XT seam¬≠less¬≠ly inte¬≠gra¬≠tes with the build. The card is equip¬≠ped with espe¬≠ci¬≠al¬≠ly long 600 mm coo¬≠lant hoses to allow for more moun¬≠ting opti¬≠ons in a case, even in EATX enclo¬≠sures with caver¬≠nous inte¬≠ri¬≠ors. The hoses are slee¬≠ved in tex¬≠ti¬≠le web¬≠bing to pro¬≠tect against abra¬≠si¬≠on and to add an extra touch of class to the system.

To move heat out of the loop, a pair of cus¬≠tom-desi¬≠gned 120 mm radia¬≠tor fans that are opti¬≠mi¬≠zed for both high CFMs and sta¬≠tic pres¬≠su¬≠re keep air moving through the clo¬≠se¬≠ly packed fins of the heat exch¬≠an¬≠ger. As with other ROG Strix cards, the ROG Strix LC Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 XT‚Äôs onboard Fan¬≠Con¬≠nect II hea¬≠ders can be con¬≠nec¬≠ted to a pair of sys¬≠tem fans. The¬≠se hea¬≠ders let con¬≠nec¬≠ted case fans respond direct¬≠ly to chan¬≠ges in GPU or CPU tem¬≠pe¬≠ra¬≠tures, incre¬≠asing air¬≠flow right when it‚Äôs needed.

The ROG Strix RX 6800 flies high with a full com­ple­ment of ROG innovations

Along¬≠side the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 XT, AMD is also announ¬≠cing the AMD Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 to bring ‚ÄėBig Navi‚Äô per¬≠for¬≠mance to more midran¬≠ge sys¬≠tems. For Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ fans in the Repu¬≠blic of Gamers, the ROG Strix ver¬≠si¬≠on of the RX 6800 comes decked out with all the latest ASUS advance¬≠ments for air-coo¬≠led gra¬≠phics cards.

A mas¬≠si¬≠ve 2.9‚ÄĎslot heat sink effec¬≠tively trans¬≠fers heat away from the GPU sili¬≠con its¬≠elf using mul¬≠ti¬≠ple heat pipes and a Max¬≠Cont¬≠act base pla¬≠te, which increa¬≠ses sur¬≠face area for bet¬≠ter heat trans¬≠fer. A trio of fans with the latest Axi¬≠al-tech design push ple¬≠nty of air¬≠flow through the heat sink‚Äôs den¬≠se fin array while mini¬≠mi¬≠zing noi¬≠se levels. Not¬≠ched bar¬≠ri¬≠er rings on the outer fans, along with hig¬≠her bla¬≠de counts than the pre¬≠vious gene¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on and a coun¬≠ter-rota¬≠ting cen¬≠tral fan, ensu¬≠re that air¬≠flow is direc¬≠ted to the hot¬≠test parts of the GPU coo¬≠ler with mini¬≠mal inter¬≠fe¬≠rence from unwan¬≠ted tur¬≠bu¬≠lence. The cus¬≠tom short PCB of the ROG Strix Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 faci¬≠li¬≠ta¬≠tes a ven¬≠ti¬≠la¬≠ti¬≠on cutout in the full-length back pla¬≠te of the coo¬≠ler, pro¬≠vi¬≠ding more room for heat to exit the GPU and enter the case‚Äôs air¬≠flow path.

TUF Gam¬≠ing pairs stur¬≠dy and ste¬≠alt¬≠hy designs with the RX 6800 XT and RX 6800

For gamers who want stur¬≠dy, ste¬≠alt¬≠hy gra¬≠phics cards, ASUS also crea¬≠ted TUF Gam¬≠ing ver¬≠si¬≠ons of the Rade¬≠on‚ĄĘ RX 6800 XT and RX 6800. The coo¬≠ling design of both cards starts with a 2.9‚ÄĎslot heat sink built for ple¬≠nty of ther¬≠mal head¬≠room and quiet ope¬≠ra¬≠ti¬≠on under the demands of today‚Äôs hig¬≠hest-wat¬≠ta¬≠ge GPUs. Air is pro¬≠pel¬≠led through that high sur¬≠face area heat sink using three Axi¬≠al-tech fans. Just like on the ROG Strix coo¬≠ler, the cen¬≠tral fan rota¬≠tes clock¬≠wi¬≠se while the two on the flanks spin coun¬≠ter¬≠clock¬≠wi¬≠se to redu¬≠ce tur¬≠bu¬≠lence. This pro¬≠ven design allows hig¬≠her RPMs and more air move¬≠ment through the heat sink wit¬≠hout a cor¬≠re¬≠spon¬≠ding increase in acou¬≠stic foot¬≠print. An angu¬≠lar alu¬≠mi¬≠num shroud with a rug¬≠ged new indus¬≠tri¬≠al design wraps around the heat sink to sug¬≠gest a sen¬≠se of pur¬≠po¬≠seful performance.

A full-length alu¬≠mi¬≠num back¬≠p¬≠la¬≠te adds a touch of style to a sys¬≠tem with subt¬≠le TUF Gam¬≠ing gra¬≠phics, and a lar¬≠ge ven¬≠ti¬≠la¬≠ti¬≠on cutout ahead of the short cus¬≠tom PCB pro¬≠vi¬≠des ano¬≠ther rou¬≠te for hot air to enter the case‚Äôs air¬≠flow path. Auto-Extre¬≠me assem¬≠bly tech¬≠no¬≠lo¬≠gy, used across the lin¬≠e¬≠up, pre¬≠cis¬≠e¬≠ly places and sold¬≠ers com¬≠pon¬≠ents wit¬≠hout human inter¬≠ven¬≠ti¬≠on to boost relia¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty and build qua¬≠li¬≠ty. A 144-hour test¬≠ing regime and extra-stur¬≠dy capa¬≠ci¬≠tors ensu¬≠re out-of-the-box relia¬≠bi¬≠li¬≠ty and a long ser¬≠vice life. Users can also per¬≠so¬≠na¬≠li¬≠ze the card to match the rest of the sys¬≠tem using the onboard Aura RGB LEDs.
