sapphire formalized in front of AMD itself the launch of the RadeonRX6700 (not XT), graphic that would ultimately be a counterpart version to the Radeon RX 6700M of laptops that are repurposed to bring desktops to life, and proof of that is that the specs are identical except energy consumptionbecause in a laptop, temperatures and battery life outweigh performance.
In this way we are faced with the same Navi 22 XL graphics chip consisting of 2034 stream processors attached to 10 GB of GDDR6 memory @ 16 Gbps with a memory interface of 160 bit. Taking advantage of the fact that in a desktop computer there are no problems with energy consumption or space limitations for cooling, at least the Sapphire Pulse model reaches a maximum frequency of 2495MHz compared to 2300 MHz on the laptop’s GPU, all things considered, with a power consumption of 220W against 135W of the portable version.
If we want to think badly, it is also identical, even aesthetically, to the mining GPU”Sapphire GPRO X080“, so if we think wrong… Well, finally with the Ethereum mining market dead, nothing better than converting these chips into a product that can really be sold to the consumer. The biggest difference is that it integrates four video outputs in the form of 3x DisplayPort + 1x HDMI.
And if we think wrong, the only thing we know is that before the notable Ethereum crisis, this GPU went from 1,240 to 765 euros in just one monthwhile leaks indicated a price of 569 € for this new model which for now only has sapphire, who was the one with this mining pattern. If other mining-related companies, such as XFX, are launching a similar model…it might not be that we think badly. Not that such a product makes sense in the market either, especially when GPU shipments and sales are down, not to mention “shortages.”
