ASRock is reportedly preparing an AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card with a water block. video cardsASRock’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX Aqua is likely to be the company’s top-of-the-range graphics card, promising to be one of the fastest RDNA 3-based offerings available, with some of the best graphics available. We aim to be one of the cards. ASRock said he plans to release the Radeon RX 7900 XTX Aqua on December 13th.
ASRock Radeon RX 7900 XTX Aqua uses the same custom board design as the company’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX Taichi and features an enhanced Voltage Regulation Module (VRM) with three 8-pin auxiliary PCIe power connectors. The Taichi comes with a custom air cooler while the Aqua, as the name suggests, comes with a custom full cover water that allows cooling of the Navi 31 graphics processor, its memory cache die, memory chips and VRMs. Equipped with blocks.
The factory clock rate of ASRock’s custom Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics board is unknown at this time. It is also unclear if ASRock’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX Aqua will be faster than the Taichi or if it will have the same clocks.
Traditionally, the company’s Aqua-badged products are limited-edition offerings aimed at enthusiasts looking for the best with enhanced performance, so the Radeon RX 7900 XTX Aqua is priced accordingly. But do note that the company also offers the Radeon RX 7900 XTX Taichi. It doesn’t feature liquid cooling but comes with various board design enhancements and factory overclocks.
The launch of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX Aqua is an important milestone for ASRock. When the company entered the graphics card market a few years ago, it took a rather cautious approach and didn’t try to compete with other manufacturers’ range-topping products with beefed-up voltage regulation modules or fancy cooling systems. However, ASRock is gaining recognition as a manufacturer of graphics boards and has begun to tackle the more profitable segments of the market.
The Radeon RX 7900 XTX Aqua competes directly with top-of-the-line products with water block or hybrid cooling systems from other manufacturers such as Asus, Gigabyte and Sapphire. It’s worth noting that not all of AMD’s partners offer his Radeon graphics cards with factory-installed water blocks or hybrid cooling systems.
