Yeston RX 7900 SAKURA series
It is no longer just a render. Yeston provides the very first look at the new SAKURA GPU through official unboxing.
Chinese media reports that RX 7900 SAKURA is using newer manufacturing method for the new series, greatly increasing the durability of the design. This is a combination of injection molding, hot stamping and laser etching. The print itself can be removed or replaced, should Yeston offer new graphics designs later. A similar idea is being introduced by PowerColor, but in that case, it will apply to backplates.
The card features a triple-fan cooling design, each of a different color. This cooler is formally known as SUGAR heat dissipation technology, and no, this is not a joke:
It is not just the graphics card cooler design that is supposed to be eye catching. The company put great effort to design just as good looking packaging as the card itself. It is not clear how was Yeston design approved though, as it does not follow AMD packaging and logo guidelines at all.
Yeston’s SAKURA GPUs include RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT models. Both cards are now listed by official store on Chinese JD store at a price of 7999 RMB ($1,147) and 7399 RMB (1,060) respectively. Unfortunately, both models are now sold out.
