How this noise prevention works? :-k

Noise dampening panels on the sides and so on. I don't know if its been updated since I bought it but I have this model.

Not using the fan controller since having to adjust it yourself is annoying.

AMD Navi 2X GPUs (RDNA2) to support AV1 decoding:

Good news is that's now all the next gen GPU's with support.

Pics or it didn't happen:
AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards pictured (again)
YouTuber JayzTwoCents revealed photos and renders of graphics card featuring AMD RDNA2 architecture. A photograph and two renders confirm the design showcased by AMD just yesterday.

The two renders of the Radeon RX 6000 series from JayzTwoCents show two versions of the RX 6000 cooler designs. The first render features the same triple-fan cooler that we saw yesterday on Twitter, where AMD officially showcased it for the first time. Jay also provided an actual photograph of the graphics card. Later in a video, he also reveals a dual-fan version of the same cooler design, likely to be a cut-down version of Big Navi (21).

Still 2x 8pin connectors on the smaller card, so that's ~250W territory. :-k

Both cards seem to have 2x 8 pin connectors

Yeah the triple fan 6900XT should be 275W+, but I was surprised to see the smaller card with the same layout.

RTX 3070 is still only 1x 8pin (150W 8pin + 75W PCIe slot = 225W, officially anyway... 8pin connectors are easily capable of 300W+ with quality gauge wiring).
Having 2x 8pin connectors means at least it's got to cover between 226-375W, so it'll be interesting to see how RDNA2 scales up with power, or maybe it hits a bit of an efficiency brick wall like RDNA1 did, sweet spot wise.

I'd still be surprised if the performance per watt isn't better than Ampere though this time around.
