Gigabyte Reveals its 6800 XT and RX 6800 Graphics Cards
Mike Sanders / 8 months ago
With AMD confirming the launch of their new graphics cards earlier this week, Gigabyte was one of the first custom AIB partners to confirm their ‘own’ AMD Radeon 6000 designs. Now, admittedly, while this might sound pretty exciting, there is a pretty hefty caveat that comes along with it. Specifically, that although these are ‘Gigabyte’ graphics cards, they are pretty much just AMD reference designs with their logos placed on them.
With that being said, however, let’s take a closer look!
Gigabyte Radeon RX 6800 XT/RX 6800 Graphics Cards
Coming in a report via Videocardz, the released images do appear to confirm that, by and large, the Radeon RX 6800 and XT ‘reference’ graphics cards are fairly identical in terms of their visual appearance. Admittedly, some differences can be spotted if you really examine them closely, but make no bones about it, these are AMD designs in Gigabyte packaging and between the two, there’s barely any difference to the casual glance.
In terms of their specifications, however, there are definitely notable differences between them:
- AMD Radeon RX 6800 – 60 compute units – 250w
- AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT – 72 compute units – 300w
