AMD has confirmed that some models of the graphics card Radeon RX 7900 XTX have overheating problems, which may cause throttling
AMD issued a announcement in certain media, including the German Computer Base, a few weeks after some users started to observe elevated temperatures (up to 110 degrees Celsius) on their graphics card.
As the company states:
We are committed to resolving this issue for affected cards. Customers experiencing throttling issues should contact AMD Support.
The issue seems to affect Radeon RX7900XTX manufactured by AMD, and sold directly to consumers through the company's website. The graphics card has a vapor chamber (steam chamber) that works with water to absorb and dissipate heat from the GPU. However, AMD's statement suggests that something is wrong with that particular component, leading to overheating phenomena, which in turn causes throttling, dropping the card's performance.
The Igor's Lab claims that the temperature in the vapor chamber can reach up to 110 degrees Celsius, a value that is above the permissible limits. He adds that four to six batches of it AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX, i.e. a few thousand units, are affected by the specific problem, cited by the industry.
AMD did not immediately respond to a request for comment. However, the company's statement signals that a possible recall could be on the way for the affected products.
