AMD RDNA3 desktop cards have now been pictured and videotaped up close.

It is time to check your favorite YouTuber or website for some initial Radeon RX 7900 series showcase. AMD has just lifted the embargo on unboxing content, which means that reviewers and influencers can now show their samples in details. What they cannot show yet are their performance numbers or take the cards apart.

Most, if not all of the creators received both the Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPUs. This is a reminder that these cards are not identical, although they do look very similar. For starters, the full Navi 31 GPU is slightly bigger, and it has built-in RGB lighting. However, both card are dual-slot design and they both have two 8-pin power connectors.

Thanks to these new photos, we now have a confirmation that RX 7900 cards are not using the same board design, but this wasn’t exactly a secret since the XTX card features a wider PCB. The RX 7900XT is using D704 PCB while RX 7900 XTX is equipped with D702 board. Once the full reviews are posted, we will get the full details on the exact changes.

This is also the first time we get to see Radeon RX 7900 series right next to GeForce RTX 40 GPUs. Some unboxing coverage has focused entirely on this subject. Radeon cards are at most 2-slot design, which is clearly much thinner than RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 Founders Edition cards.

For those wondering where are custom RDNA3 GPUs, Overclock3D have you covered. They appear to be the only outlet that has showcased a custom XFX MERC 310 GPU alongside their AMD reference cards.
