AMD reveals new cooler design for RX 6000 GPUs

AMD hasn't released any specification related details here so we're exclusively going off what it looks like, however it seems likely that this is going to be one of AMD's high-end cards because why show off anything else?

Unusually, if you want to see the card from every angle imaginable (virtually), you can check it out on Radeon's Fortnite Creative Island at 8651-9841-1639. And if you're wondering what it looks like: It looks like a graphics card. The days of single-fan blower coolers appear to be over, with AMD opting for its own triple fan cooler design with a fairly hefty heatsink. They are sticking to the standard 2×8-pin ATX power connectors, rather than going for something different like Nvidia's new 12-pin design. It now packs three axial fans that should pull a lot more air and hopefully do it more quietly.

This isn't the first AMD GPU to use that design with the Radeon VII previously using a similar layout, but it is still quite a marked change from the usual methods utilised by Radeon cards.

We think that this card is built with a metal backplate, although it's hard to tell just from looking at this virtual recreation of it. It could simply be for conveniently connecting to USC-C capable displays, or it could be specifically designed for use with VR headsets.

Look for more on the actual AMD Raden RX 6000 series cards soon. We'll be sure to keep you updated with all the developments related to AMD's new lineup of components.
