AMD’s RX 7900 XTX reference cooler can measure ambient intake temperatures

According to a video by Gamers Nexus, AMD’s reference RX 7900 XTX features a unique ambient thermal sensor that allows the GPU to measure the air-inlet temperature coming directly into the cooler. We don’t know why AMD added this sensor to its cards, but it has the potential to be very useful.

Having an ambient temperature sensor inside your GPU cooler has several advantages. Gamer Nexus notes that one of the most notable benefits is monitoring the ambient temperature when the fan is off (0db mode), protecting the PCB components on the card from overheating.
