EKWB appears to be preparing an AMD Radeon VII water block

Soon available

AMD's Radeon VII graphics card has been released almost a couple of weeks ago, but so far no water block manufacturers have released full cover water blocks of the graphics card, leaving many Radeon fans wondering if the GPU will ever receive a proper water cooling support.

Thanks to a post on AMD subreddit, EKWB said that the water block will be available in four or five weeks. What we can expect from EKWB? Well, the company might release once again a full cover that will cool down simultaneously the GPU, the VRAM as well as the VRM.

Furthermore we might see more than one variant with different tops. Like for the NVIDIA RTX version, we expect to see the copper+plexi model, copper+acetal model, nickel-plated+plexi model with RGB compatibility and, nickel-plated+acetal version with RGB compatibility.

Last but not least, the Radeon VII might benefit of more performance due to the better cooling. Back in 2017, EKWB released a report which claimed that their RX Vega 64 with EKWB full cover offered a 9% performance boost and a 4% reduction in power draw. At the moment is just a speculation, but the Radeon VII would see similar benefits when liquid cooled.
Below you can find EK's official price list for their new EK-Vector series of RTX compatible products.
