The Chinese company Vaarmor presented the Radeon RX 7800 XT Alloy and Radeon RX 7700 XT Alloy Pro graphics cards. Both novelties are equipped with the same cooling systems with an unusual “hypnotic” RGB backlight.
The Vaarmor Radeon RX 7800 XT Alloy and Radeon RX 7700 XT Alloy Pro models received cooling systems with a thickness of 2.5 expansion slots, which include three fans. The dimensions of the graphics cards are 328 × 132 × 53 mm. Both offer a slight overclock to their Navi 32 GPUs. Both cards report power consumption benchmarks of 263W for the RX 7800 XT and 245W for the RX 7700 XT. Both cards received two 8-pin power connectors.
For the Radeon RX 7700 XT Alloy Pro model, the GPU frequencies are specified as 1784, 2276 and 2600 MHz (base, gaming and boost), for the Radeon RX 7800 XT Alloy model the frequencies are 1624, 2254 and 2565 MHz, respectively. Notably, Vaarmor also provided base clocks for the GPUs, which is not the case with most manufacturers. In general, the GPU overclocking of new products was 5-6% above the reference values.
The graphics chip of the Radeon RX 7800 XT Alloy model contains 3840 Stream processors. The card received 16 GB of memory with support for a 256-bit memory bus. The Radeon RX 7700 XT Alloy Pro uses a GPU with 3540 Stream processors and packs 12GB of GDDR6 memory with a 192-bit memory bus. The younger card received 48 MB and the older 64 MB Infinity Cache.
Although in terms of technical characteristics Vaarmor cards do not differ from solutions from other manufacturers, they use a unique design of the cooling system. It consists of two fans with a diameter of 100mm and one with a size of 90mm. Some of the RGB lighting is integrated directly into the fans themselves, which is why they create an unusual “hypnotic” effect when rotated.
These graphics cards are only available in China. The RX 7700 XT costs 3,999 yuan ($545), while the RX 7800 XT costs 4,499 yuan ($612).
