Sapphire RX 6000 TOXIC or TOXIC ATOMIC?
Yet another teaser reveals that the card might feature an AIO cooling solution.
Today is the fourth day of the Sapphire teaser campaign for the upcoming Radeon TOXIC graphics card. The latest teaser appears to indicate that the graphics card will feature a hybrid AIO cooler.
So far we have only seen that the fan is hidden behind a grill, but we have not seen how many fans does the card actually has. It appears that there is only one fan, which is installed at the rear of the graphics card, while the rest of the card is hidden under a glossy shroud. This indicates that the graphics card has a liquid cooler (there should be an AIO pump under the glossy shroud), while the third fan is either to cool down the VRM section exclusively or in tandem with the liquid loop.
The upcoming TOXIC brand is a return of an iconic enthusiast Sapphire series, which was not updated since Radeon RX 390X times. Sapphire is likely to offer TOXIC series under RX 6900 XT SKU, and possibly expand the offer into cheaper cards later.
The first teaser from Sapphire China had two letters: T and A. We have only seen a teaser of a single graphics card, while the initial rumors were that there might be a TOXIC and ATOMIC series reveal. The latter were always liquid-cooled series. Thus, it is possible that the graphics card that we are now expecting is actually called TOXIC ATOMIC.
