The Radeon VII was launched by AMD in spring 2019. Its chip is based on a 7 nm structure.

Waterblocks are already on the market. We have compiled an overview here.

Please pay attention to the compatibility information of each supplier. What you generally have to consider regarding reference design and custom design for graphics cards can be found in this article.

For prices and availability you can also get information directly from the manufacturer or shop of your choice. We will try to update the list when other manufacturers present their products.

Alphacool

Alphacool currently has only one AIO solution in retail. The waterblock is not sold separately. The cooling solution is part of the Eiswolf 240 GPX Pro series. Its loop is already filled, but can be extended with additional components thanks to the quick-release couplings.
