AMD RDNA3 desktop cards have now been profiled and photographed up close.

Time to check out your favorite YouTuber or website for a preview of the Radeon RX 7900 series. AMD just lifted the ban on unboxing content, which means reviewers and influencers can now view their samples in detail. What they can’t show yet are their performance numbers or card breakdowns.

Most, if not all, creators received both Radeon RX 7900 XT and Radeon RX 7900 XTX GPUs. This is a reminder that these cards are not identical, even though they look very similar. For starters, the full Navi 31 GPU is slightly larger, and it has built-in RGB lighting. However, both cards are a 2-slot design and they both have two 8-pin power connectors.

Thanks to these new images, we now have confirmation that the RX 7900 cards don’t use the same board layout, but that wasn’t entirely a secret because the XTX card has a wider PCB. The RX 7900XT uses a D704 PCB while the RX 7900 XTX is equipped with a D702 board. Once the full revisions are posted, we’ll have the full details on the exact changes.

This is also the first time we’ve seen the Radeon RX 7900 series next to GeForce RTX 40 GPUs. Some of our unboxing coverage has focused entirely on this topic. The Radeon cards are a two-slot design at most, and are obviously much thinner than the RTX 4080 and RTX 4090 Founders Edition cards.
