ASUS has officially announced its first Radeon RX 7000 Series graphics cards, the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX. A new press release shared by the manufacturer echoes much of the information that it originally shared in an Edge Up post from earlier this month but can confirm that the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XTX, its faster RDNA 3 option with 6,144 stream processors and 24 GB of GDDR6 memory, is a 3.63-slot graphics card with three 8-pin power connectors. Both models feature the durable materials and reinforced construction that the TUF Gaming series is known for, alongside newer connectivity options such as DisplayPort 2.1.

From an ASUS press release:

As the new frontrunner in the ASUS Radeon RX graphics card family, the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XTX pushes the series to new performance heights. This 3.63-slot card offers a whopping 6,144 stream processors. For those looking for lots of bandwidth and plentiful pools of VRAM, the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card offers both: 24 GB of GDDR6 memory and a 384-bit memory interface.

Durable materials and a reinforced construction make the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XTX a tenacious warrior. Its exceptionally strong structure is more than equal to the task of protecting the PCB from sagging. It starts with a rigid die-cast frame to which a sturdy backplate and shroud are melded, both made of aluminum. ASUS also included a graphics card holder in the box to keep this graphics card perfectly aligned over time.

A new cooling design empowers the GPU to run at full throttle. A wider vent on the backplate opens up even more room for airflow. Plus, total heat dissipation area has been increased by a full 22.8%, and an expanded opening along the edge of the backplate allows even more air to flow through the fins from the Axial-tech fans.

The fans are both larger and more effective for this generation. They provide 13.8% more airflow and 8% more static pressure compared to the last generation, all while spinning at lower RPMs and producing a similarly low amount of noise. A Dual BIOS switch lets users choose between performance and quiet modes, or they can get to manual tweaking with ASUS GPU Tweak III software.

Advanced connectivity lets users reap the advantages of the latest gaming monitors on the market. They will find an HDMI 2.1 port on the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XTX and a trio of DisplayPort 2.1 ports.

To provide the necessary power, the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card uses three 8-pin power connectors. This supplies a robust power delivery system featuring 20K-rated capacitors and a spread of high-current power stages arranged in a 17+4 configuration. In addition, the ASUS Auto-Extreme manufacturing process offers robust longevity that lives up to the TUF name, so users can be confident that their top-tier card will power through games for years to come.
