PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 6650 XT To Get Hellhound ‘Sakura’ Edition Custom Graphics Card


The newest AMD Radeon RX 6X50XT series is to release in a little over a week, and we have seen some manufacturers already leak their specific designs for the line on the Internet. Yesterday, we reported ASUS having two of their newest graphics cards listed for sale on a French online site. Before that, the only other GPU partner was ASRock. Now, we hear from PowerColor and their popular Hellhound graphics card series. This card is different than the previously announced AMD RX 6650 XT model. This model will be primarily white with pink accents.

PowerColor Teases Its Upcoming Radeon AMD RX 6650 XT Hellhound 'Sakura' Edition Custom Graphics Card

PowerColor traditionally only sells the Hellhound GPU series in black, so a white & pink variant is surprising to report. The last time the company chose to release a Hellhound graphics card in white was its AMD RX 6700 XT Hellhound.

This new white variant based on the AMD RDNA 2 refresh GPU will have pink accents — a shade reminiscent of the cherry blossom tree. Outside of the color change, it will still share the same heatsink thickness and eight-pin power connector. There is also speculation that the card will maintain the same boost clock of 2689 MHz and 17.5 Gbps memory as the company's black variant.

The standard hellhound custom graphics cards from PowerColor rock a black and blue color theme.

The AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card will be powered by the company's Navi 23 XT GPU, offering 11.06 Billion transistors within a 237mm2 die. The Navi 23 GPU features 32 Compute Units with 2048 Stream Processors. Onboard the graphics card is 32 MB Infinity Cache and offers an 8 GB GDDR6 memory capacity spread across a 128-bit bus interface at speeds of 17.5 Gbps per pin for a total bandwidth of 280 GB/s. Like the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT, the card will operate with a TBP anticipated at around 160-180W. The processing capability should see an improvement of 10% or better.

The upcoming AMD Radeon RX 6650 XT, the RX 6750 XT, and RX 6950 XT graphics cards will launch on May 10 and be the last graphics cards for the current RDNA2 generation. After this latest set of graphics cards, the company will switch focus to the next-gen RDNA3 technology that has been in development.
