Following quite a while of pausing, Big Navi is at long last here: the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT. A very good quality fan designs card that existed exclusively in the deepest desires of lovers for more than a year—and in the Radeon Technology Group labs for most likely significantly longer—the RX 6900 XT is a definitive articulation of the RDNA 2 engineering.
A known amount since October, the RX 6900 XT will be a recognizable sight for anybody that read our RX 6800 XT audit. It includes a similar triple-fan cooler plan, memory setup, and even TGP and clock speeds as the RX 6800 XT. Henceforth why a lot of what I talked about back in November in regards to the great updates to the RDNA 2 design is as yet substantial with respect to the more costly $999 card.
In any case, the RX 6900 XT trains in on Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090, a Titan taking all things together yet name, and you’d be right in reasoning something must’ve changed to go anyplace near understanding that grandiose objective. There has been one vital change to the equipment: Where the RX 6800 XT incorporates 72 register units (CUs) for a sum of 4,608 stream processors, the RX 6900 XT accompanies 80 CUs and 5,120 stream processors.
Also I need to say the possibility of a card that approaches Nvidia’s $1,499 illustrations card for 66% of the cost had me energized for quite a long time. All the amped-up promoting from AMD’s ‘The place where Gaming Begins’ done something amazing for me, and any feelings of dread I maybe should’ve had for a $1,000 illustrations card stopped matter-of-factly between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 liquefied away like delicate serve on a hot day.
What are the AMD RX 6900 XT specs?
The AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT specs sheet is as completely stacked as it gets. In any case, we should begin with the center fixing: RDNA 2. As I referenced already, on the off chance that you need a more itemized once-over of AMD’s spic and span RDNA 2 design, you want just look to our RX 6800 XT audit’s engineering area. There are a great deal of enhancements over the original RDNA gaming design to discuss, which probably requests its own profound jump, yet for the present, how about we center around the points of interest of the RX 6900 XT’s execution.
A similar Navi 21 GPU dwells inside the Radeon RX 6900 XT as the two RX 6800-series illustrations cards we’ve as of now investigated, which means you’re getting an indistinguishable, and extremely successful, double process unit design that is tailor-made for gaming—yet on a marginally bigger scope with the 80 CU RX 6900 XT. That makes for a sum of 5,120 stream processors—a 11 percent expansion over the RX 6800 XT.
That accompanies a cost increment, as well. The RX 6900 XT is estimated at $999, while the RX 6800 XT is accessible (on the off chance that you can observe one to be available) for $649. Both the RX 6800 XT and its little kin, the $579 RX 6800, are to a great extent inaccessible at the present time, be that as it may. We speculate the send off of the RX 6900 XT to go similarly, on the off chance that not be all the more scantily accessible as most elite execution GPUs will generally be made at lower amounts.
Assuming that you can get your hands on one, you’ll be gifted an unquestionably thoroughly examined engineering, with upgrades to timekeepers and power conveyance guaranteeing the center GPU is running similar to a well orchestrated symphony. Indeed, even with a high center include and TGP in accordance with the RX 6800 XT, the RX 6900 XT effectively penetrates 2.2GHz clocks under load.
To empower such a chip to work inside a similar 300W TGP as the RX 6800 XT, AMD is utilizing a modest bunch of different advancements for each Navi 21 GPU bound for the RX 6900 XT. A binning interaction guarantees the Navi 21 GPU inside the RX 6900 XT is probably the best example out of TSMC’s 7nm fabs, and every one has been painstakingly chosen for its capacity to meet execution necessities while holding power effectiveness.
There’s likewise a base VRM power conveyance necessity for all RX 6900 XT designs cards, with the reference AMD model contribution 16-stage VRM power conveyance. That, AMD says, is the way to keeping up with comparative wattage to the lower-spec model while keeping up with more noteworthy execution. That and the binning, obviously.
Also indeed, that is affirmation that there will be outsider models of the RX 6900 XT. These will show up not long after send off. Until further notice, in any case, the RX 6900 XT might be accessible in reference attire, precisely the same heatsink and cooler plan found on the RX 6800 XT. That is one way that the RX 6900 XT has the RTX 3090 quickly beat, as well, it’s not even close as tremendous. However it is still bounty equipped for dealing with the hotness created by that 519 mm2 GPU, running marginally more sizzling than the RX 6800 XT under load at 74°C, to the second-level card’s 68°C.
