As the launch of the next-generation of AMD graphics cards approaches, more cheeky leaks are finding their way online. The latest leaks have shown up as an unboxing on YouTube, even one that appeared on eBay, hardware benchmarks and more! The latest leaked images look pretty legit to me, showing off the design of the AMD Radeon Fury X graphics card, its water cooling unit and more interestingly, the power connectors.
As you can see in the images below, the Fury X is going to be power-hungry, requiring a pair of 8-pin power connectors to feed the card and no doubt the reason why it will use that thick water cooling radiator to keep the heat in check. It’s no secret that Nvidia have got the lead for power efficiency but what we’re really interested in seeing is how the new generation of cards use that power to render graphics; I’ll take FPS over efficiency any day.
Also on show, the water cooling pipes for the radiator, They’re heavily braided to help ensure a long lifespan and reduce any chance of damaging them, or coolant leaks. A shorter graphics card this may be, but those power connectors and that big radiator hint at some pretty hardcore hardware on the interior.
Thank you PCper for providing us with this information.
