In a recent teaser, Sapphire Technology revealed that “Vapor-X” would return on Radeon GPUs. Although not a part of the Radeon Vapor-X GPU line, this is the same vapor chamber technology found in the Toxic, Nitro, and Vapor-X series.
The teaser also shows that Sapphire’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX and XT NITRO GPUs will have three 8-pin power connectors. It’s also the first time we’ve seen a modified Navi 31 board with 20 VRM different phases.
This rough mockup shows that the Sapphire card is not noticeably bigger in width than the AMD MBA design (Made by AMD). The company improved the system by making it more complex and modifying how power is delivered. However, this should result in increased overclocking potential.
AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 series is set to debut in less than two weeks, and a teaser video was just released. Sapphire brought up two product codes, the 7900XTX and the 7900T. Custom cards were said to launch a few months after AMD’s reference designs, but this teaser suggests otherwise.
