ASUS has just announced its AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics cards – the Dual Radeon RX 6500 XT and TUF Gaming Radeon RX 6500 XT.

The new graphics cards are built on a 6nm process and the AMD RDNA 2 gaming architecture. They are designed to make 1080p gaming experiences for AAA esports titles accessible to more gamers. Additionally, they offer high-bandwidth, low latency AMD Infinity Cache and high-speed 4GB GDDR6 memory.

The graphics cards support Microsoft Windows 11 and Microsoft DirectX 12 Ultimate, as well as AMD Smart Access Memory and AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution technology to name a few features.

Both cards are also built with Auto-Extreme technology. This is a process that cleanly solders components without human intervention for a high-quality final result.

ASUS Dual Radeon RX 6500 XT

The Dual Radeon RX 6500 XT has a compact two-slot design that can fit even into small-form-factor builds. It has an Axial-tech fan design and an 85W power draw that allows it to bring 1080p performance without introducing excessive heat or noise.

Barrier rings around the fan direct airflow straight to the heatsink, allowing the GPU to stay cool under load. Meanwhile, the zero-dB technology turns the fans completely off during lighter workloads. The fans turn back on when the GPU reaches 60° C.

The card has subtle RGB lighting on the shroud and an aluminum backplate for a premium feel despite the lower price.

TUF Gaming Radeon RX 6500 XT

Meanwhile, the TUF Gaming Radion RX 6500 XT has a 2.7-slot heatsink and dual Axial-tech fans. It can reach lower temperatures while maintaining similar noise levels and 90W power for a slightly higher sustained clock speed. Furthermore, it can also be switched into Q mode that prioritizes quiet operation thanks to a dual BIOS.

The card has an angular design with Aura RGB lighting on the TUF logo. Aura Sync compatibility gives you the freedom to match the card’s lighting to the rest of the system. It also has an aluminum backplate with a vented edge to allow air to pass through the heatsink.

As it is part of the TUF Gaming series of products, it uses military-grade capacitors and goes through a rigorous set of tests to ensure durability.

Ram found his love and appreciation for writing in 2015 having started in the gaming and esports sphere for GG Network. He would then transition to focus more on the world of tech which has also began his journey into learning more about this world. That said though, he still has the mentality of "as long as it works" for his personal gadgets.
