ASUS has plans to go all out with AMD’s Navi 32 GPUs as the company has listed 64 variants under the Radeon RX 7800 XT & RX 7700 XT range.
ASUS plans several SKUs for Navi 32 GPUs with ROG STRIX and newer ProArt variants for the Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT series
This development stems from one EEC application, which reveals that ASUS has submitted several variants for AMD’s newly released Radeon RX 7800 XT and RX 7700 XT GPUs. The models mentioned are divided into four different categories, representing models with variable clock speeds (OC vs. non-OC). Moreover, the “Top” category is also mentioned, which suggests that ASUS plans to release more expensive variants of Navi 32 GPUs as well, preferably under the ROG STRIX range.
Before you get your hopes up, it’s important to note that the list doesn’t mean that ASUS will release all 64 models at 100%, but that most of these models will be released at some point. Videocardz points out that the list is likely a matter of “future-proofing” the lineup, as ASUS can release the models at any time depending on industry needs. However, it is reason to see the list in the first place because it shows that AIB partners are committed to making AMD GPUs competitive in terms of offering consumers a comprehensive range of options.
An interesting fact about the filing is the mention of “white” ProArt AMD Radeon RX 7800 XT & RX 7700 XT GPUs, which has not been seen before. ASUS’ ProArt variants are generally aimed at a minimalist audience, with a focus on fine-tuned noise output, a benchmark important to professionals and content creators. A white variant of the ProArt would certainly be a well-rounded lineup, as white models are generally scarce on the market, both in the NVIDIA and AMD camps.
ASUS has not specified which models would actually see the light of day. The company has only released TUF Gaming variants of the two Navi 32 GPUs so far.
