After the listing of RTX 4090, it encountered an unexpected situation in which the power supply burned out. Although the later response of NV stressed that it was caused by the failure of users to plug in, the controversy around 16Pin did not dissipate. AMD is smarter. RX 7900 XTX/XT avoids 16Pin and continues the traditional 2x8pin or 3x8Pin.
However, RX 7900 XTX has recently been mired in doubts about hot spots with temperatures as high as 110C (when the core temperature of the GPU is only 50C). On the one hand, AMD has reassured users that there is no problem in design redundancy. On the other hand, it also quietly collects user feedback, and the latest statement is that users can contact the official after-sales if they encounter unexpected temperature problems.
A few days ago, hardware enthusiast Der8auer tested four RX 7900 XTX plates and found that horizontal / vertical installation, reducing the gap between GPU and cooler, and replacing washers can not avoid the problem of high hot spot temperature.
He finally thought& ldquo; culprit-rdquo; is likely to be the public version of the use of poor-quality VC soaking plate or material failed, resulting in the coolant can not return correctly, resulting in local temperature is too high.
If his speculation is correct, it means that the public version of RX 7900 XTX has a design flaw and will have to be recalled.
Only Der8auer said he had collected 48 cases of RX 7900 XTX“ fever & rdquo; online, and enthusiastic netizens sent cards to help with the analysis.
