AMD gave us our first look at the reference design for its flagship Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics card yesterday, but JayzTwoCents has shared something even better: an image of the RDNA 2-powered GPU in the flesh. It appears to look just as great in person. Echoing the details of the render shared on Twitter yesterday, AMD has dumped the Radeon RX 5000 Series’s blower for an open-air design with triple-axial fans, which should enable higher cooling performance.

That isn’t all, though, as JayzTwoCents has also graced us with our first look at the design for the mid- and/or lower-ranged (i.e., Navi 22 or Navi 23) models. Obviously, the biggest difference here is the fan configuration, which drops three fans for two. We’re not too sure about the gigantic “R” in the center and white coloring, though, which seems to contrast too harshly with the matte-black parts, but the design looks pretty decent overall.

You can check out the images in the gallery below. According to JayzTwoCents’s crystal ball, the triple-fan design will be reserved for the Radeon RX 6900 Series, while the dual-fan design will grace the Radeon RX 6800 or 6700 Series. AMD is expected to tell us a lot more during its upcoming Radeon event, which takes place on October 28.

  1. As long as that Radeon logo lights up and the cards are as fast or close to Nvidia’s offerings at a lower price point and are available at launch and have good drivers and .. and … and ..

    Then I’m good

    You mean, so long as AMD doesn’t pull an AMD?

    That’sa lot to ask for from AMD.

    Stop already with the outrageous demands!

  5. I like the 3 fan design with the red accent over the 2 fan cooler. I kind of assume with Radeon that it’s going to be black and red anyway. I have no issue with the cooler being very similar to a 2080ti cooler as long as it performs well. Also these are just reference cards/coolers right? Asus, XFX, Sapphire, etc. Will have their own coolers/designs, no?
