GIGABYTE Announces Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming OC and EAGLE Graphics Cards

GIGABYTE today rolled out a pair of custom-design AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards. These include the RX 6700 XT Gaming OC, and the RX 6700 XT EAGLE. The company will also sell reference-design "made by AMD" RX 6700 XT cards. The RX 6700 XT Gaming OC features a WindForce 3X cooling solution that looks practically identical to the Radeon RX 6800 Gaming OC card, with possible modifications to its heatsink's base-plate. Three aluminium fin-stacks are skewered by five 6 mm-thick copper heat-pipes that make direct contact with the GPU. Additional base-plates pull heat from the memory and VRM areas. The card draws power from a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin PCIe power connectors. Display outputs include two each of HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 connectors.

The Radeon RX 6700 XT EAGLE is the more slender of the two custom-design RX 6700 XT cards by GIGABYTE. It is strictly 2 slots thick, and uses a slimmer heatsink. Three aluminium fin-stacks are joined by three 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU. The power input configuration is the same as the Gaming OC card, as is the display output configuration. GIGABYTE didn't disclose the factory overclock speeds or either cards, but the Gaming OC card is expected to be the faster of the two. Both cards are expected to launch on March 18, 2021.

I had a Eagle 3060ti and can confirm those fans are the same and utter trash, they where either off or at 90% then one decided to death rattle within a week and I got really lucky and exchanged it for a MSI Ventus which runs much better and quieter.
Between their motherboards and GPU's gigabyte has really dragged the good name the built for themselves back in the 939/775 socket days through the mud.

It seems that Eagle or reference are my two options for 6700XT, since case allows only for 2 slot cards

What's wrong with their motherboards? I was looking at building a Gigabyte x570 system soon.

Nothing wrong with my X570 Aorus Elite so I'm also curious. If there are issues they are often related to AGESA, which is independent from GB and handled by AMD.

I bought a GIGABYTE X470 AORUS ULTRA GAMING on launch and it was complete trash the bios was buggy and the fans would all stop at random even under full load despite configuring them in the bios it was missing its M2 heatsinks, luckily I was able to return it seeing as how a ton of them died in a few months and 30% of its reviews on newegg are 1 star because it failed.

Its just my personal experience but both the gigabyte products I have been duds, it almost seems like their launch products are garbage and stuff the release later works much better.
