With the Gaming OC, Gigabyte designed a cost-effective RX 6700 XT that doesn't go overboard with cooling, yet has sufficient cooling power to beat the AMD reference card at both noise and temperatures. With just 69°C under full load, the card has plenty of thermal headroom left. At the same time, noise levels reach 34 dBA, which is definitely audible, but not "loud" or "noisy." Some other Radeon RX 6700 XT cards we've tested are much quieter, whisper-quiet even, but they use much bigger coolers, too.
