At least in the Western hemisphere, Yeston is best known for offering computer components with an anime-inspired aesthetic. At least in this niche, the company’s products are highly regarded, and its new Radeon RX 7900 Sakura looks to continue this trend.
The RX 7900 Sakura, which was revealed in all its plastic-and-metal glory in a Weibo post by Yeston, appears to be a rather large graphics card with an unusual-looking cooler design that Yeston refers to as “SUGAR.” It is a colossal, pastel-colored, three-fan cooler with each fan a different hue. In addition to being noticeably taller than the rear I/O bracket, the cooler appears to extend well into a third slot.
Regarding the rear I/O bracket, it is notable that the Sakura card retains the USB Type-C port of the reference board design. The majority of Radeon RX 7900-series AIB GPUs have abandoned the USB Type-C connector in favor of a third DisplayPort port. This makes sense for the majority of users, but a VR headset or Mac monitor could benefit from the USB-C connection.
In addition to the card itself, the packaging is quite decorative and provocative. However, the box’s festive, summery design seems a little out of place in the depths of winter. It is unclear whether the acrylic stand shown in some of the photos is included with the card, but we assume it is.
In China, these cards are already available. Popular retailer JD offered the Radeon RX 7900 XT for 7399 RMB ($1061), while the XTX model was listed for 7999 RMB ($1147). Well, we say they are available, but we probably should have said “were available” because they are no longer available. If you’re desperate for a cute GPU, you should keep an eye out for Yeston’s cards on Newegg.
