GIGABYTE RADEON RX 6800, PCIe x16, 16GB GDDR6
Based on the RDNA 2 architecture and designed to handle the graphical demands of 4K gaming as well as 1400p at high frame rates, the Gigabyte Radeon RX 6800 Gaming OC Graphics Card provides an immersive gaming experience with your PC games. The GPU features 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a 256-bit memory interface, offering improved performance and power efficiency over the previous RDNA-based generation.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs, such as DisplayPort 1.4 and HDMI 2.1. HDMI 2.1 supports up to 48 Gb/s bandwidth and a range of higher resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K @ 60fps, 4K @ 120fps, and even up to 10K. The RX 6800 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU’s 3840 cores to accelerate APIs.
For cooling, Gigabyte implemented the WINDFORCE 3X cooling system. It features three 80mm fans. The fans feature unique blades, where the airflow is split by the triangular fan edge, and guided smoothly through the 3D stripe curve on the fan surface. With alternate spinning, the fans reduce turbulence and increase air pressure.
The 3D Active Fan provides semi-passive cooling and the fans will turn off when the GPU is in a low-load or low-power state. There are also seven composite copper heat pipes and a large copper plate with direct contact to the GPU and VRAM, which efficiently transfer heat. The extended heatsink design allows air flow to pass through, providing better heat dissipation. It also has RGB Fusion 2.0, which has 16.7 million customizable color options and a variety of lighting effects. You can also use it to synchronize with other AORUS devices.
DirectX 12 Ultimate
DirectX12 Ultimate gives game developers the power to deliver immersive visuals with real-time DirectX Raytracing (DXR), Variable Rate Shading (VRS), Mesh Shaders, and Sampler Feedback, taking games to the next level.
AMD FidelityFX is an open-source image-quality toolkit comprising seven different solutions available for game developers to implement into their games that are optimized for AMD RDNA and RDNA 2 architectures.
AMD Radeon Image Sharpening
Restores clarity to in-game images that have been softened by other post-process effects. RIS combines with GPU upscaling to provide sharp visuals at fluid frame rates on very high-resolution displays, and works across DirectX 9, 12, and Vulkan titles.
AMD FreeSync 2 Technology
Reduce screen tearing with AMD’s FreeSync 2 Technology. FreeSync 2 enables the monitor to dynamically adjust its refresh rate to the frame rate being output by the graphics card, thereby greatly reducing screen tearing, stuttering, and other artifacts.
Optimized for eSports, Radeon Anti-Lag improves competitiveness by decreasing input-to-display response times by up to 31 percent, delivering an experience similar to higher frame rates.
AMD Radeon Boost
AMD Radeon Boost dynamically lowers resolution of the entire frame when fast on-screen character motion is detected via user input, allowing for higher FPS with little impact to quality.
