The new range of Speedster GPUs features XFX’s new Ghost Thermal design that helps to keep the card cool, along with a straight-through airflow that helps to improve the cooling. There are three double ball bearing fans that with 13 blades each to boost the total airflow for a quieter and long-lasting operation. This also increases the endurance and efficiency by reducing the friction heat.
The new Speedster MERC319 Radeon RX 6800 series also uses the new 6-piece/7piece copper heat pipes for better efficiency of heat transfer from the GPU. The cards also feature aluminum backplate heat spreader on the rear side. XFX has also implemented more number of thermal pads throughout the card, including on VRM’s, memory chips, and the GPU silicon. The Speedster MERC319 Radeon RX 6800 Black has a DUAL BIOS switch for modes such as “Balanced” for optimal performance, and “Stealth”. The Speedster MERC319 Radeon RX 6800 XT card also comes with a Dual BIOS switch with “Stealth” and “Rage” modes. These modes uses different GPU clocks.
The MERC319 Radeon RX 6800 Black uses a 10+1 Phase Power Design, as compared to the reference AMD Radeon RX 6800’s 7+1 phase power design. The faster MERC319 Radeon RX 6800 XT Black uses a 14+2 phase power design. The Balanced BIOS modes of the Speedster MERC319 Radeon RX 6800 XT Black features 1900 MHz as the base clock, 2090 MHz for game clocks, and 2340 MHz speed for boost clocks. The Rage BIOS mode offers 1925 MHz speeds for the base clocks, 2110 MHz speeds for game clocks, and 2360 MHz speeds for boost GPU clocks.
The new XFX Speedster MERC319 AMD Radeon RX 6800 Black comes with 3840 stream processors and the Speedster MERC319 AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Black features with 4608 stream processors.
