TUF GAMING OC Radeon RX 6800 RDNA2
- Axial-tech fan design has been enhanced with more fan blades and a new rotation scheme.
- Dual ball fan bearings can last up to twice as long as sleeve bearing designs.
- An all-aluminum shroud, reinforced frame, and metal backplate enhance durability.
- MaxContact heat spreader features a super flat surface for improved thermal transfer.
- A 144-hour validation program puts cards through a series of stringent tests to ensure compatibility with the latest games.
- A vented backplate prevents hot air from recirculating through the cooling array.
- GPU Tweak II provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring.
Ready for action the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 6800 is a tenacious beast with a tough metal exterior, super efficient cooling and high performing components featuring the all-new breakthrough RNDA2 architecture – engineered to deliver powerhouse performance to all gamers. The AMD Radeon RX 6800 graphics card powers a new generation of competitive and 4K gaming with vivid visuals, and elevated experiences in every game and every frame with powerful enhanced new compute units, AMD Infinity Cache, DirectX 12/PCIe 4.0 Support and 16GB of dedicated GDDR6 memory. Experience gaming with realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections along with rich detail thanks to DirectX Raytracing (DXR), variable rate shading (VRS), and AMD FidelityFX features, optimised for AMD RDNA 2 architecture. The AMD Radeon 6800 is engineered to deliver ultra-high frame rates and serious 4K resolution gaming.
Increased Fan Blade Count
A new generation of axial-tech fans has risen with an increased blade count across all three fans; 13 blades on the center with 11 blades on the auxillary fans, the barrier rings on the side fans have been streamlined to allow for more lateral intake to allow better airflow through the cooling array. The central fans additional blades and full-height ring boost static pressure to blast air directly onto the heat spreader, These fans have been designed specifically for a massive new heatsink that features more fins and a larger surface area than previous iterations.
Reverse Rotational Design
To assist with the specialised roles of the three fans, the rotational direction of the center fan has been reversed in order to reduce turbulent air inside of the cooling array to give you heightend thermal performance and with fan stop technology fans will only start to spin when GPU temperature hits 60C reducing noise and increasing fan longevity when under a light load.
Smoother at a Microscopic Level
To ensure maximum thermal efficiency, MaxContact technology has been utilised to smooth the surface of the heat spreader at a microscopic level allowing for better contact with the GPU die giving you enhanced thermal transfer.
No Nonsense Metal Shroud
The underside of the card reveals further improvements. Most of the rear is swathed in a protective metal backplate that prominently features a wide vent. This vent allows hot air to escape towards the chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the GPU cooler. An included GPU bracket provides extra stability to the critical connection between die and heat spreader. Stainless steel is used for the I/O bracket to protect ports and provide a more secure mount. And a conveniently placed Dual Bios switch allows customisation of the card's default performance profile without software.
Not Just a Pretty Face
The front-side RGB element can be customized to display a range of aesthetic and functional effects, and also synced with other ASUS components to enable uniform lighting. To fulfill the power demands of the Radeon RX 6800, two 8-pin power connectors are present, along with onboard LEDs that light up if PSU PCIe power connectors are not plugged in correctly. Structural pillars of a built-in reinforced metal frame are also visible here and add a literal layer of durability.
A Breakthrough Gaming Architecture
AMD RDNA 2 architecture is the foundation of next-generation gaming PCs and consoles. It is the bedrock of the upcoming revolution in PC gaming graphics and cloud gaming. AMD RDNA 2 elevates and unifies visual effects and gameplay across multi- gaming platforms, like no other graphics architecture before.
