PowerColor has released the Radeon RX 6500 XT ITX, a graphics card intended for Mini-ITX systems. The Radeon RX 6500 XT ITX has a 90 mm fan and measures just 165 mm across. AMD based the Radeon RX 6500 XT on a Navi 24 GPU with 1,024 Stream Processors.

PowerColor has revealed the RX 6500 XT ITX, a Mini-ITX graphics card that measures 165 mm x 125 x 40 mm. Hence, you should have no problem including the card in a small form factor PC (SFFPC). Incidentally, PowerColor has equipped the RX 6500 XT ITX with a 90 mm fan, 10 mm larger than the dual-fan RX 6500 XT Fighter that the company also sells.

As VideoCardz notes, PowerColor shows the RX 6500 XT ITX with a 6-pin power connector. AMD describes the RX 6500 XT as having an 8-pin connector though, so this is probably a mistake on PowerColor's behalf. For some reason, PowerColor has not disclosed the card's GPU clock speeds, although we imagine it will defer to AMD's reference speeds.

If that is the case, the RX 6500 XT ITX will have a 2,815 MHz boost frequency and a 2,610 MHz Game Frequency. All RX 6500 XT cards have 1,024 Stream Processors, 32 ROPs, 64 Texture Units and 16 Compute Units too, thanks to AMD's Navi 24 GPU.

For some reason, PowerColor has not confirmed how much the RX 6500 XT ITX costs. AMD has set the card's MSRP at US$199, but initial listings have made a mockery of that price. AMD has no plans to sell RX 6500 XT reference designs, either.
