AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT Graphics Cards Available NOW in NZ!

UPDATE: RX 6500 XT Graphics Cards are now available in AMD Store

During the CES2022 event, the AMD team unveiled details for their new entry-level desktop graphics card named RX 6500 XT, and the first wave of new options from Sapphire, Asus and Gigabyte are set to release on Thursday, January 20th at 3am here in New Zealand, with more options from Powercolor and ASRock coming a little later.

Essentials:

– 6-Pin power input
– Most models have 1x HDMI 1x DisplayPort
– Max digital resolution 7680 x 4320
– PCIE 4.0 Ready
– RX 6500 XT is currently not included in the AMD Rewards offer

Featuring AMD RDNA 2 gaming architecture, these new 4GB GDDR6 graphics cards are intended to provide smooth, high-speed gaming experiences at 1920×1080 resolution in popular AAA and esports titles.

During the presentation, performance was compared to both the AMD Radeon RX 570 and Nvidia GTX 1650 in a range of titles including Apex Legends, Overwatch, Fortnite & CS:GO, with Fortnite showing a remarkable increase of 44% in their comparison.

Now onto the good stuff, looking at the RX 6500 XT Graphics Cards expected to be available on day one 🙂

Kicking off with the new ASUS TUF RX 6500 XT we see a surprisingly large 2.7 slot heatsink with dual-fan cooling, the PCB is reinforced by a backplate that adds structural rigidity, helping to prevent flex and protect the trace pathways from accidental damage. Power input is a single 6-pin and the TUF logo glows beautifully too. The ASUS TUF RX6500XT graphics card has outputs for HDMI, DisplayPort and DVI.

Quickly comparing to the ASUS Dual Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics card version we see a similar dual fan design but with the 6-pin power placed a little further towards the rear of the GPU, with some detailing along the cooler and backplate coming together rather nicely. The ASUS DUAL RX6500XT graphics card has outputs for HDMI and DisplayPort.

From Sapphire we see an awesome PULSE style dual fan cooler, with that airflow gap on the backplate like we see on newer RTX options too. The Sapphire specifications are sure to be impressive as they’re one of AMD’s exclusive partners too. The Sapphire PULSE RX6500XT graphics card has outputs for HDMI and DisplayPort.

Another AMD exclusive partner is Powercolor, and while we don’t expect to have their version of the GPU on day one here in New Zealand, those who are after the single fan version for a small gaming PC build will be eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Powercolor ITX RX 6500 XT graphics card which is designed to fit. Although much smaller in size it still requires a single 6-pin power input which is placed right at the back edge. The Powercolor ITX RX6500XT graphics card has outputs for HDMI and DisplayPort.

These are just some of the new RX 6500 XT graphics cards releasing here in New Zealand, check out the full range in AMD Store and keep your eyes on the GGPC blog for the latest!

Windows 11 OEM, TPM 2.0 and Intel 12th Gen builds!

UPDATE: Windows 11 Home OEM and Windows 11 Pro OEM are available for order now. If you’re unable to use the BIOS update method below, TPM modules are now also available in NZ.

For gamers, the Windows 11 team teased a few new features such as auto-HDR in Skyrim, which did make the clouds look more realistic, DirectStorage, which aims to help make our loading times even shorter and even more integration with the Xbox ecosystem and DirectX 12.

VIA MICROSOFT: If you’re a gamer, Windows 11 is made for you. Gaming has always been fundamental to what Windows is all about. Today, hundreds of millions of people around the world game on Windows and find joy and connection with loved ones and friends through play. Windows 11 unlocks the full potential of your system’s hardware, putting some of the latest gaming technology to work for you. Like: DirectX 12 Ultimate, which can enable breathtaking, immersive graphics at high frame rates; DirectStorage for faster load times and more detailed game worlds; and Auto HDR for a wider, more vivid range of colors for a truly captivating visual experience. Nothing has changed in our commitment to hardware compatibility – Windows 11 supports your favorite PC gaming accessories and peripherals. With Xbox Game Pass for PC or Ultimate, gamers get access to over 100 high-quality PC games with new games added all the time, and it’s still just as easy to find people to play with, no matter if they’re playing on a PC or console.

While the upcoming Z690 motherboard series for 12th Gen Intel is likely going to be ready-to-run with Windows 11 installation, it’s still going to be a while before the current motherboard stock transitions through, so while the factory hardware setups adjust to match the new software specifications, let’s take a quick look at what’s required to make our current builds Windows 11 ready.

The basics are: For your Windows 10 build to install Windows 11, the PC must first pass the test performed by Microsoft’s PC Health Check software. 

You can download the tool here = https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2021/08/27/update-on-windows-11-minimum-system-requirements-and-the-pc-health-check-app/

Run the tool and you’ll see the requirements are easily met, though two options for Secure Boot support and TPM 2.0 enabled may require some BIOS settings be adjusted.

The good news is, it’s super easy to do!

You can adjust the needed settings manually within the BIOS menu (tap delete during boot sequence to access that menu), but as the exact location and name of the settings needed within the BIOS menu changes a little between models/versions it can be a bit of a hassle searching for the TPM/PTT options.

To make things a bit easier, motherboard manufacturers have started to release new BIOS updates that change the settings for us, not all are ready yet, but a massive amount are.

On the Intel side, compatible motherboards include Z390, Z370, H370, B360, B365, H310, Z490, H470, B460, H410, Z590, B560, H510, H570 and X299 (when paired with certain CPU) chipsets. For the AMD side it’s equally awesome with X399, X370, B350, A320, A300, X300, X470, B450, X570, B550, A520 and TRX40 models supported.

The BIOS update method is very straightforward, quick steps below;

Step #1: Find out what motherboard model you have.
Step #2: Install the BIOS update for that motherboard 

There are a couple of ways to find out your motherboard model, you could look on the motherboard itself for the printed model ID, or get the PC to tell you.

To get your PC to tell you your motherboard model, follow these steps from the desktop;

Step #1: Press start, type “CMD”, command prompt will appear, press enter to run it.
Step #2: In the command prompt box, type (or cut’n’paste) this “wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer”
Step #3: Press enter, your motherboard model will now be shown in text

Once we know the motherboard model, we can download the latest BIOS from the matching manufacturers’ website, quick links below to the related articles about Windows 11 from each.

Asus Motherboards = https://www.asus.com/support/FAQ/1046215

Gigabyte Motherboards = https://www.gigabyte.com/Press/News/1925

MSI Motherboards = https://www.msi.com/blog/How-to-Enable-TPM-on-MSI-Motherboards-Featuring-TPM-2-0

Asrock Motherboards = https://www.asrock.com/news/index.us.asp?iD=4696

If you don’t want to update the BIOS for whatever reason, or the Windows 11 ready version isn’t available for your specific model at the moment, you can enable what’s needed within the BIOS. 

The steps to do this for the major brands are covered quickly with the YouTube video here.

Pretty good right! Quick screenshots below to further highlight how different the BIOS settings within AMD and Intel motherboards are.

Starting with an ASRock AMD motherboard for example, the option is named fTPM.

You’ll find the option in the Advanced tab, then CPU Configuration menu. To make it ready, select “AMD fTPM switch” and choose “AMD CPU fTPM”.

For ASRock INTEL motherboards, the option name is different.

You’ll find the option in the Security tab, it’s named “Intel® Platform Trust Technology”, enable this.

Once you’ve done the updates, run the tool again to check all is OK then either download the Windows 11 preview (if you’ve signed up for insider access), or wait for yours to get served via the windows update, which will deploy the Windows 11 upgrade to staggered groups around the world.

The first wave of Intel 12th Generation i7-12700K CPU and the Z690 motherboard range with it’s new LGA1700 socket are expected to release soon too, so it’s going to be great to see how this latest Alder Lake makes use of the new Windows 11 software, along with all the new technology that comes with the latest DDR5 RAM and PCIe 5.0 support.

Exciting times ahead 🙂 GAME ON!

Completing the winners setup is a keyboard 4x faster than standard, the G213 Prodigy Gaming Keyboard was designed for gaming, featuring ultra-quick, responsive feedback that is up to 4x faster than the 8ms report rate of standard keyboards and an anti-ghosting matrix that keeps you in control when you press multiple gaming keys simultaneously.

The G213 Prodigy features Logitech keys that are specially tuned to deliver a superior tactile response and performance profile. At full height, they deliver a full 4mm travel distance, 50g actuation force, and a quiet sound operation.
