Fan Renders Show Similar But Still Attractive AMD Radeon 7000 Reference Design

With AMD officially set to launch their Radeon 7000 graphics cards on November 3rd, anticipation is already unusually high for them. Yes, at a time where Team Green usually manages to steal all the thunder, this time around, I think it would be fair to say that given the somewhat eye-watering MSRPs Nvidia confirmed for its initial release of 40XX GPUs, people are now hoping that AMD might step in to save the day for people looking for a new graphics solution on a reasonable budget!

So, what about those reference designs from AMD? Well, following a report via Videocardz, Twitter user ‘TechNetium‘ has released a number of amazing rendered images showing us what the Radeon 7900XT might look like!

AMD Radeon RX 7900XT Fan Render!

We should start by noting that these images are not, in any way, either confirmed or endorsed by AMD. They are simply a graphical representation based on what the Radeon 7000 reference design might look like given all known information and leaks which have appeared online so far. Additionally, while it seems likely that this is pointing towards their flagship 7900XT, the final design revealed by AMD may be very different indeed.

Assuming that these are accurate, however, while it does seem that the reference design will primarily be keeping the overall aesthetic seen from the Radeon 6000 series, there are a number of new additions including a new lighting strip around the centre fan and a notably thicker design. This might, in fact, represent the fattest GPU AMD has ever created (and you may recall that their ill-fated Radeon VII was a bit of a chunky momma).

What is of particular interest, however, is that the renders seem to indicate that AMD will not be making the transition to the PCIe Gen5 power connection standard. This design will, instead, be utilising the standard 8-pin connection (albeit, three of them as pictured above).

Overall though, if this is what the Radeon 7900XT will look like, I have no complaints. I always thought their Radeon 6000 reference design was a looker and with these tweaks, and even despite its seemingly rotund physique, I think this is an improvement!
