Take Flight


The ROG Strix Radeon™ RX 6650 XT V2 amps Full HD frame rates to meet the demands of the latest high-speed displays. Dual Axial-tech fans efficiently blast air through a large heatsink to keep the GPU chilled, and top-shelf capacitors, chokes, and MOSFETs deliver the perfect amount of clean power. A host of creature comforts, including a Dual BIOS switch, 0dB mode, and metal backplate up the ante to make this beast the ideal choice for your next gaming rig.

Fans


Dynamic Duo


Both Axial-tech fans feature half-width barrier rings to increase airflow through the cooling array.

Fans

Quiet Cunning

Fans start spinning when the GPU temperature hits 61 Celsius and shut off when temps drop below 56 Celsius, helping to reduce noise when the system is idling or under light load.

2.6-slot Design


The heat spreader draws heat up into heatpipes that carry it through a fin stack that fills most of the card’s large, 2.6-slot footprint.

Design


Fierce Shroud


A striking shroud with metal accents mirrors the design aesthetic of ROG and ROG Strix motherboards. Textured accents in a greyscale colorway blend seamlessly into subtle builds or make a striking impact while the card is vertically mounted and lit by chassis LEDs.

Design


Armored Underside


The underside of the card reveals further improvements. Most of the rear is swathed in a protective metal backplate that prominently features a wide vent. The vent allows hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the cooler. A GPU bracket provides extra stability to the critical connection between die and heat spreader. Stainless steel is used for the I/O bracket to protect ports and provide a more secure mount. And a conveniently placed Dual BIOS switch allows customization of the card’s default performance profile without software.

Aura Sync


The ROG Strix Radeon™ RX 6650 XT V2 features Aura RGB lighting on the side of the card. Aura Sync software connects compatible products for a completely customized lightning setup. You can sync to music, change color based on temperature, or select from a large number of patterns and static options. Look out for the Aura Sync logo when you're picking parts for your build.
