Don’t expect to see any deals on graphics cards, it’s a pipe dream that we don’t know if we’ll see again, a unicorn that seems extinct and some are already talking about as if it were a legend. The reality is that prices are always on the rise, and while they are going down as can be seen on this GPU, they are still above what they should be worth.
AORUS RX 6800 Master 16 GB, a beast to satisfy your desires
The market is very large and considering the above, we can only think that the needs and the wallet are very different between users. And if you’re one of those people who can’t wait (or just don’t want to), if your pocket is very rich, or if the money saved encourages you to make the leap to the next generation of GPUs, this card is for you.
We are talking, as we said, of an RX 6800 customized by AORUS, a gaming subsidiary within the GIGABYTE group which will surely not disappoint you. And is that this model reaches a huge 2190 MHz by the model 2105 of the series in its Boost mode, while in Game Clock mode it reaches 1980 MHz (1815 MHz the reference model).
Like all RX 6800s, it has a Navi 21 XL die based on RDNA 2.0 and built with TSMC’s 7nm, which gives it 26,800 million transistors in an area of only 520mm2. This chip houses 3,840 shaders with 240 TMU, 96 ROP and 60 RT Cores
- L0 -> 32 KB for WGP
- L1 -> 128 KB per bay
- L2 -> 4 MB shared
- L3 -> 128MB Infinity Fabric
We are talking about a low GPU PCIe 4.0 container 16 GB GDDR6 2000 MHz or effective 16 Gbps (256-bit bus), with a total consumption of more than 250 watts (not specifically specified) and which must be powered 2 8-pin connectors.
A big GPU with a good heatsink
To complete the characteristics of the card on paper it is necessary to refer to two connectors DisplayPort 1.4a And two HDMI 2.1, as well as its 4-year warranty if we register it on the GIGABYTE website.
Finally and focusing on your radiator, we will find three 100 mm fans with alternate rotation, an LCD screen where card information, GIFs or various images can be displayed, lighting system RGB FUSION 2.0, an aluminum backplate, a DUAL BIOS and two power LEDs that will check if we have correctly connected the power supply of its two 8 pin PCIe.
Regarding its price, it is currently listed at 1,202.03 dollars, only in limited units that will surely end up stealing since it is one of the best AMD RX 6800 models on the market.
