Sapphire has officially debuted its new flagship air-cooled Toxic AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card after teasing it on Facebook. The new card borrows some design traits from the previous NITRO+ series such as a three-fan cooling solution, but it features a new gold/orange motif and ARGB. The Tri-X cooling solution also features a combined memory and VRM cooling module with two heat pipes running underneath, which is said to improve thermal conductivity by 38 percent over the former design. The 7 nm GPU is believed to be a Navi 21 XTXH GPU.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
