PowerColor lets white hellhounds loose
PowerColor’s Hellhound has a white cooler, white PCB and white I/O bracket.
The company has unveiled a new version of their RX 7800 XT Hellhound graphics card, specifically the Spectral White model. While not the first card to bear this name or the first card to flaunt an all-white aesthetic, it undeniably stands as the first AMD Navi 32 GPU to incorporate this design.
As indicated, the card’s color scheme has received a complete transformation to white. Distinctively, this card extends the all-white concept to its very core, encompassing the front shroud, backplate, I/O bracket, and even the PCB. Powercolor confirms that even the heatsink has adopted a white hue, an atypical feature for GPUs. However, this could mean that PowerColor operates a separate production line dedicated to assembling these cards, potentially leading to an uptick in the pricing.
Under the hood, this card is driven by the Navi 32 GPU, equipped with 3840 Stream Processors, constituting the complete GPU configuration. It draws power from dual 8-pin connectors, although there appears to be room for a third connector. In terms of dimensions, the card measures 32.2×13.4×5.0 cm, designating it as a 2.5-slot design.
The card retains identical specifications to the original RX 7800 XT Hellhound, boasting a 2213 MHz game clock and a 2520 MHz boost clock. It’s worth noting that the card features a dual BIOS function, offering two modes, with the Silent mode delivering reduced clocks and quieter fan profiles.
PowerColor did not announce pricing.
