As the release of the Radeon RX 6000 series approaches, AIB partners have started to announce their graphics cards. Until now, most of the models shown are using AMD’s reference cooler, but companies like Sapphire have shown that they are also working on their own cooling solutions.
A new teaser posted by Sapphire on Twitter gives us the first glimpse of their upcoming Radeon RX 6000XT Nitro+ graphics card. Although the tease clearly implies this is Radeon RX 6800XT, the Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 Nitro+ card should also have a similar look. Regarding the RX 6900XT, we are still unsure if AMD will allow AIB partners to develop cooling solutions, but if it does, it should also look fairly similar.
By the image teased at the post, the new Sapphire Radeon RX 6800XT Nitro+ will feature an all-black cooler with a triple fan design. The middle fan seems a bit smaller, and it looks that it will rotate anti-clockwise. We expect that this card will come factory overclocked like the previous Nitro+ cards.

The AMD Radeon RX 6800XT will feature 4608 stream processors, with 72 Ray accelerators, 288 Texture Units, and 128 ROPs, paired with 16GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16Gbps. Additionally, it will feature 128MB of Infinity Cache, boosting the memory bandwidth on the 256-bit bus to 512GB/s.
We expect that this card will be available later this month, after AMD releases the Radeon RX 6000 series on November 18th.
