2022/01/04

January 4, 2022 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of premium gaming hardware, today announced new graphics cards built on AMD Radeon™ RX 6500 XT GPUs. The Radeon RX 6500 XT GAMING OC 4G and Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G graphics cards are equipped with the WINDFORCE cooling system and engineered to deliver great gaming performance with remarkable efficiency. Blaze a trail into tomorrow, dive into 1080p gaming, and enjoy vivid virtual worlds and elevated experiences with the power of next-generation graphics.

Powered by the breakthrough AMD RDNA™ 2 gaming architecture, the new graphics cards are designed to make incredible 1080p gaming experiences for popular AAA and esports titles accessible to more gamers. They offer high-bandwidth, low-latency AMD Infinity Cache™ and high-speed 4GB GDDR6 memory. They also support Microsoft Windows 11 and Microsoft DirectX® 12 Ultimate, AMD Smart Access Memory™ technology, AMD FidelityFX™ Super Resolution upscaling technology and other advanced features that provide visually stunning, high-refresh rate gaming experiences.

The Radeon RX 6500 XT GAMING OC 4G graphics card features the WINDFORCE cooling system, screen cooling and a protective back plate, making it the best choice for performance-minded gamers. The Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G graphics card also features the WINDFORCE cooling system, making it the best choice for those who desire a unique design, while maintaining both efficiency and durability.

GAMING OC

The GIGABYTE WINDFORCE 3X cooling system features three unique blade fans with alternate spinning, composite copper heat pipes in direct contact with the GPU, 3D active fans and screen cooling that work together to provide efficient heat dissipation. The middle fan spins in reverse to optimize airflow for heat dissipation, enabling more efficient performance. These cooling technologies keep the graphics card temperatures low at all times, resulting in higher and more stable performance.

WINDFORCE fans utilize graphene nano lubricant, which can extend fan life by 2.1 times, delivering nearly the lifespan of the double ball bearing while providing quiet operation. The protective back plate not only strengthens the overall structure of the graphics card, but also prevents the PCB from bending or sustaining damage. Featuring ULTRA DURABLE certified components and advanced cooling technology, the GAMING OC model is the best choice for performance gamers.

EAGLE

The Radeon RX 6500 XT EAGLE 4G graphics card also features the WINDFORCE cooling technology, composite copper heat-pipe and copper plate, 3D active fans and graphene nano lubricant, enabling optimal heat dissipation and gaming performance. The design of the EAGLE graphics card is inspired by science-fiction with mechanical materials, a transparent cover, and a bright logo.

GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics cards use a multi-phase power supply, providing over-temperature protection and load balancing for each MOSFET and allowing the MOSFET to operate at a lower temperature. The ULTRA DURABLE certified chokes and capacitors provide excellent performance and longer system life.
