It looks like RDNA 3 will be less energy hungry than expected

A prototype of the AMD Radeon RX 7900 graphics card design was filmed, revealing a graphics card larger than the current AMD RX 6900 XT that requires two 8-pin (6 + 2-pin) PCIe power connectors for power.

With two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, the AMD reference design RX 7900 can draw a maximum of 300 watts through these power connectors. Add the 75 watts the GPU can draw from your system’s PCIe slot, and this graphics card will have a maximum power draw of 375 watts. That’s a lot less than Nvidia’s RTX 4090, though it remains to be seen if this new graphics card is AMD’s next-generation flagship, the rumored Radeon RX 7900 XTX.

Based on the images below, it is clear that this new graphics card from AMD is a prototype. The graphics card currently has a red PCB, lacks a back panel and has obvious connection points for testing equipment. With three red stripes on its heatsink, this graphics card matches the one that AMD teased earlier this year.

The graphics card is pictured below alongside the Radeon RX 6900 XT (or Radeon RX 6800 XT) and it’s clear that the new AMD RX 7000 series heatsink design has been created to enable more airflow around the graphics card. We can see a more pronounced area around the RX 7000 series heatsink fin assembly, giving the graphics card more room to breathe.

At this time, the graphics card pictured above is not known to have the same heatsink design as AMD’s upcoming RDNA 3 flagship. If so, AMD is releasing a graphics card with significantly lower power limits than Nvidia’s RTX 4090. This indicates that AMD has made significant efficiency gains with its RDNA 3 graphics architecture, assuming that AMD’s new flagship is a competitor to Nvidia’s RTX 4090.

AMD is set to unveil its first RDNA 3-based products on Thursday, November 3. Here, AMD will reveal the capabilities of its latest graphics hardware, and show us exactly what RDNA 3 can do.
