EK LAUNCHES SPECIAL EDITION WATER BLOCKS FOR AMD RADEON RX 7900 XTX GPUS
The long-awaited December 13th has finally arrived with the latest AMD® Radeon™ RX 7000 Series GPUs being released. More good news is that EK®, the premium water-cooling gear manufacturer, is ready with the EK-Quantum Vector² water blocks for the reference models of the new AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPUs. The compatible water blocks can be found HERE.
But to celebrate the availability of these GPUs, EK Water Blocks is making a limited run of these special AMD Radeon Edition GPU water blocks. This water block fits reference PCB designs of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPUs, but we recommend you refer to the EK Cooling Configurator for a precise compatibility match.
This AMD Radeon Edition Vector² water block effortlessly solves the issue of excessive heat generation during high load on the GPU. This liquid-cooling solution cools the graphics compute die, voltage regulation module, voltage controllers, the VRAM, and the MCDs on the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphic card.
“We are thrilled to have collaborated with AMD, creating these Special Edition water blocks. Aside from effortlessly solving the issue of excessive heat generation during high load on the GPU, EK’s innovative product design ts AMD’s Radeon RTX 7900 XTX GPU’s like a glove. The combination of AMD’s best-in-class products paired with EK’s creative, innovative design is, yet again, another win-win combination.”
— said Kat Silberstein, CEO of Americas at EKWB
The new Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPUs have GCD manufactured in a cutting-edge 5nm process, allowing a 54% improvement in performance per watt. While the GPU is efficient, it still uses more power than the previous generation. At 355W total board power, it is packed in the smallest package to date, but its 300mm² GCD contains 165% more transistors per mm² than the previous generation. This means that these GPUs feature 58 billion transistors for 61 TFLOPs of performance, all the more reason to get them water-cooled.
EK-Quantum Vector² RX 7900 XTX AMD Radeon Edition
A special effort went into designing and engineering this water block as it features a black anodized aluminum cover with a cast acrylic window revealing the cooling engine. In contrast to other Vector² water blocks, the cooling engine has been rotated by 90°, so the fins are perpendicular to the die, which is optimal for the chiplet design. For optimal delta, the coolant flows over the graphics core die first, and then goes over the memory cache die, resulting in all MCDs getting the same temperature coolant.
There are no assembly screws visible on the front side of the water block, which is inspired by the aesthetics of the stock AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX air cooler. This design also allows for the absence of screws in the Plexi top.
