Biostar rolls out its own Radeon RX 6800 series graphics cards

Reference for now, but custom versions are incoming

As AMD's first RDNA 2-based Radeon RX 6800 series cards are finally available, AIB partners are moving to the market with their own cards, and Biostar is starting off with reference versions, while custom ones should be coming soon.

As is the case with most AMD AIB partners, Biostar is only launching reference versions for now, for both the Radeon RX 6800 and the Radeon RX 6800 XT.

AMD has thankfully switched from blower-style coolers, and both the RX 6800 and the RX 6800 XT come with a triple-fan cooling system which works great, at least according to the reviews.

In case you missed it, the Radeon RX 6800 XT gets 72 Compute Units (CUs), 16GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory interface, 128MB of Infinity Cache, and works at 1825MHz base, 2015MHz Game, and 2250MHz Boost clocks, all with a maximum power limit of 290W, or 255W TGP (ASIC power, TGP, incl. mem), at least according to Biostar. Biostar also lists the maximum clock limit at 2577, and maximum memory clock at 2000MHz.

The Radeon RX 6800 has 60 Compute Units (CUs), the same 16GB of GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory interface, and 128MB of Infinity Cache, and works at 1700MHz base, 1815MHz Game, and 2105MHz Boost GPU clocks. This one has a maximum clock limit of 2475MHz, with a maximum memory clock of 2000MHz, as well as a maximum power limit of 230W, with 203W TGP.

Both cards should already be available, and we expect custom cards from Biostar soon, presumably in its Gaming series.
