power color japan It was published A first photo of what we believe to be the company’s upcoming Hellhound Radeon RX 7900 series graphics card. The board complements PowerColor’s Red Devil branded Radeon RX 7900 board, which the company announced some time ago, but the product positioning could be different.
There are three things that immediately stand out in the photos of PowerColor’s new Hellhound Add-in Board (AIB). It has a very sophisticated 3-slot cooling system with two radiators and multiple heat pipes, two 8-pin PCIe auxiliary power connectors, and a blue LED (or RGB LED set to blue).
Huge coolers are likely the norm for AMD’s Radeon RX 7900-based graphics cards, so it’s no surprise to see them here. On the other hand, considering the fact that PowerColor has equipped their Radeon RX 6900 XT and RX 6950 XT graphics cards with three 8-pin PCIe power connectors, the Hellhound Radeon RX 7900 series graphics cards are equipped with two 8-pin connectors. It’s a little surprising that However, there is a possible explanation for this.
“Hellhounds are born with fur as tough as armor and claws as sharp as razors,” PowerColor tweeted. “His eyes burn in the dark and track prey with precision. They were once the fighting dogs of heroes. But your bravery did not go unnoticed by the Red Devil, giving you the chance to become the keeper of Hell.” He gave me.”
PowerColor typically uses the Red Devil and Liquid Devil brands for their top-end graphics cards, while the Hellhound brand is reserved for high-end mainstream boards and products for modders looking for a stylish AIB. I’m here. Without a doubt, the PowerColor Hellhound Radeon RX 7900 series cards are impressive. However, in order to distinguish between the top-of-the-line Devil branded graphics cards and Hellhound branded products, PowerColor may have limited the number of power connectors on the latter. Of course, this limits the product’s power budget and overclocking potential, but it also ensures that the cooling system is adequate for this part.
It remains to be seen if PowerColor will offer the Radeon RX 7900 XTX under the Hellhound branding, or if they will only sell their top-end cards under the Red Devil and Liquid Devil trademarks and limit the Hellhound branding to the lower-end Radeon RX 7900. XT offering.
AMD will start selling reference AMD Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX products on December 13th, which are set to compete in the ranks of the best graphics cards for gaming. At this point, all of AMD’s AIB partners can roll out custom Radeon RX 7900 series products by that date. But given that companies like Asus and PowerColor are already testing the new Radeon, we’ll likely see at least some custom offerings by mid-December.
