An Alienware RX 6800 XT, is it really that ugly?

An Alienware RX 6800 XT, is it really that ugly?

As we saw some time ago, at OEMs too there is research on the design of their components. We think especially of Lenovo who teased about their RX 6900 XT, which was visible in pictures afterwards. This time, it’s Dell who is making the news with an RX 6800 XT. It doesn’t hurt to take a look at what’s being done on this market from time to time.

RX 6800 XT: what does Dell’s card look like?

Thus, in the high-end PCs assembled by Dell, we find large graphics cards. We must keep in mind that Alienware, remains a brand of Dell, hence the use of this kind of GPU.

In short, the model we have in front of us remains quite basic as far as the heatsink is concerned. Indeed, we find a card equipped with three fans blowing on a large network of aluminum fins. The latter is also crossed by a number of heat pipes and we can see a thick baseplate covering the entire PCB. Finally, at the back, a backplate is present to stiffen the whole. However, we don’t know if its role is to help the cooling of the card.

On the design side, nothing extraordinary either, the card brand displays a grooved shell along its length. On the edge, we can see a RADEON logo in red and that’s about it. On the other hand, there is no real need for an elaborate design, especially if the card is not visible in the PC. On the other hand, it is noticeable that the card displays a strict dual slot format, which is rare enough to be highlighted. Even AMD’s reference card occupies more than two slots.

Last but not least, we would like to inform you that the PCB of this card is designed by MSI. At least that is what the MS-395 Ver 3.1 marking indicates. By the way, it could also be that MSI is in charge of its production.
