PowerColor has unveiled perhaps the cutest version of the Radeon RX 6650 XT graphics accelerator. A distinctive feature of the Hellhound Sakura Edition is an unusual white and pink colorway with sakura floral designs on the rear reinforcement panel.
The manufacturer also announced black and all-white (Hellhound Spectral) versions of the Radeon RX 6650 XT Hellhound. All three are based on the Navi 23 KXT chip with 32 compute units including 2048 stream processors, 32 ray tracing accelerator units, 128 texture units and 64 ROP units.
The chip offers a slight factory overclocking and works in the frequency range from 2486 to 2689 MHz. The card has 8 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 128-bit bus. The data transfer rate is 17.5 Gbit/s per contact. This increases throughput to 288 GB/s. There is also a 32MB Infinity Cache speed buffer. Like the regular Radeon RX 6600 XT, the new product only uses eight PCIe 4.0 lanes to work.
The cooling system of the Hellhound Sakura Edition has a pink fan light and has two fans. The card received an 8-pin connector for additional power supply. The nominal TDP of the novelty is 180 watts.
The accelerator PowerColor RX 6650 XT Hellhound Sakura Edition is already on sale. For example, it can be found in New Zealand where it retails for around $503.
