Yeston to launch more Sakura Radeon GPUs

The company confirms its all-white RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT models. 

Yeston’s lineup of Radeon GPUs is notably smaller than that of the GeForce RTX 40 series. However, the company’s main focus is on the Sakura series, which is quite popular with gamers.

The Sakura models have undergone several updates in recent years, with the most significant changes introduced alongside the GeForce RTX 4080 and RX 7900 models. However, the company is now reverting to its older cooling solution for the RX 4070 and RX 7800/7700 models.

This cooler isn’t an exact replica though; in fact, it’s larger than the previous-generation cooler by more than 3 centimeters. Additionally, the fans have also been upsized, with their diameter increasing from 83mm to 91mm. This results in improved cooling efficiency, particularly for GPUs exceeding 200W, such as the one mentioned above.

Yeston’s offerings, however, don’t stop at cooling enhancements. The forthcoming SAKURA RX 7800XT/RX 7700XT models will be the first Navi 32-based cards featuring a white PCB and white I/O bracket. None of the other ‘white’ custom models based on this SKU will incorporate these design changes, and there are quite a few of them to mention.

ASRock has plans for a Steel Legend model, ASUS is set to introduce its inaugural white TUF Gaming model, and Sapphire has the NITRO PURE in the pipeline. All of these cards share a common feature: a three-fan layout, although they differ in thickness, ranging from 2 slots to 3.

One issue surrounding Yeston’s SAKURA models is their availability. The company exclusively sells these cards through Asian e-tail platforms and the US-based Newegg. However, the latter tends to lag in updating to newer SKUs, often listing these cards at inflated prices. Nevertheless, these cards provide more options for gamers assembling their new systems.

Yeston did not confirm the full specs, pricing, and availability of their new SAKURA GPUs. More details are expected prior to the launch on September 6th.
