And again Radeon RX 7900 XTX problems. Some PowerColor Red Devil cards have thermal paste applied so poorly that it can cause overheating
At least one model of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX graphics card has another overheating issue. In this case, we are not talking about reference cards, but about the PowerColor RX 7900XTX Red Devil, which is considered one of the top versions of the AMD flagship.
The author of the portal Igor’sLAB decided to look into the reasons for the numerous complaints of the owners of these cards and indeed discovered the problem. And the most banal one: it turned out that the cards had poorly applied thermal paste on the GPU.
Because of this, the heat from the core is transferred to the cooling system unevenly, which leads to a situation where the temperature of the hottest point of the GPU is 30 degrees higher than the average temperature! This is even more than in the case of problematic reference versions.
A simple replacement of thermal paste with the correct application has proven to solve the problem easily. Firstly, the average GPU temperature dropped by 5 degrees, and secondly, the temperature of the hottest spot decreased by 15 degrees.
The important thing is that PowerColor has already contacted the author and thanked him for his help.
We’ve discovered an issue on our production line that causes some cards to have warmer hotspot temperatures than usual. We have seen this happen with a small percentage of total production and we are already in the process of replacing thermal paste. Thanks to a new contribution from IgorLabs, we are also testing whether changing the way the cooler is attached to the card improves thermal performance. We are working to resolve this issue as quickly as possible so that our customers receive only the highest quality products.
In general, the problem with overheating of the RX 7900 XTX made a lot of noise at one time, and then they quickly forgot about it. As was the case with the RTX 4090 fire.

Cool passively a bundle of Core i9-13900K and GeForce RTX 4080. $1,000 Streamcom SG10 Radiator Case Introduced
Modern processors and video cards generate a lot of heat, and passive coolers are almost a thing of the past. However, the Streamcom SG10 is able to silently cool both the Core i9-13900K and the GeForce RTX 4080 at the same time. True, the Streamcom SG10 is only partly a cooling system, because it is a computer case. However, it is also difficult to call the product a full-fledged case.
In general, the easiest way to evaluate the novelty is from photographs. As you can see, this is a very massive design, which is supposedly capable of dissipating up to 600 watts of power.
In the case of a GPU, the capabilities of the Streamcom SG10 are really impressive, as the RTX 4080 core in 300-watt mode warmed up under load to only 60 degrees. With the Intel flagship, the situation is much worse: the CPU, known for its hot temper, in such a case operates at a temperature of about 100 degrees and even higher. However, with many air COs in the case of the Core i9-13900K, the situation is no better. On the other hand, no one forces you to use the Core i9-13900K.
It is also worth noting that the heat from the CPU and GPU is removed directly by flexible heat pipes or even hoses. This solution allows the design to be more flexible in terms of the use of different components.
The company also showed a variant with a copper heatsink. Such a case will be 20-40% more expensive than the aluminum version, which will cost $1,000.
The head of Nvidia promised not to leave gamers and came out with the protection of 8 GB of memory from the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti
Amid the explosion of interest in artificial intelligence, Nvidia’s stock soared to incredible heights, putting the company briefly in the club of companies with a capitalization of over $1 trillion. Against this background, gamers and journalists have a question whether all this will affect the gaming direction. However, the head of Nvidia assured that no one will forget about gamers.
First, RTX was invented for gamers, and for RTX, the most important technology is artificial intelligence. Without artificial intelligence, we wouldn’t be able to do real-time ray tracing. It was impossible. And the first AI project in our company, the main direction of AI was Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). Deep learning. This is the pillar of RTX.
Second, notice what we’ve done with generative AI. The first application was ACE – Avatar Cloud Engine
Also, the head of Nvidia spoke out in defense of 8 GB of memory in the younger RTX 40 graphics cards.
Remember that the frame buffer is not a computer’s memory, but a cache. And how you manage cache matters a lot. As in the case of any other cache. And yes, the more cash, the better. However, you must compromise on many issues.
As a result, Jensen Huang called 8 GB for the RTX 4060 Ti the right amount. However, as we said today, even the RTX 3070 eventually appeared in serial form with 16 GB of memory.
