AMD RX 6900 XTX, the GPU in response to the NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti

The data is complicated, it’s not confirmed, however the prototype is completely actual and plainly it is going to be based mostly on the rumors of two weeks in the past about an AMD energy chip, besides that this time there are two necessary information. Is it an efficient weapon towards NVIDIA’s high-end?

AMD RX 6900 XTX, actual or a easy model with AIO?

There was no official announcement at Computex, nor any assertion a few new mannequin that ought to hit the market shortly, on the opposite, absolute silence. It is AMD’s new coverage and as such, solely leaks and customers with extra contacts can shed gentle.

But in this case we’re speaking about one thing very actual, since this new GPU has already been seen in China by means of a pre-built system and has subsequently been listed in a retailer in Brazil. The mannequin in query is signed by Sapphire and as we will see, it refers to an AMD reference design, so we could be completely earlier than a brand new batch GPU for OEMs and producers.

What we do know for positive is that AMD had a brand new chip for them Navi 21 XTXH with an elevated PL vary in addition to its frequencies, in order that in many situations it manages to problem the RTX 3090 at nearly 50% much less price in in the present day’s market.

A easy naming mistake?

Although the new GPU seems with such a reputation in the Brazilian retailer, the reality is that its specs are something however these of an RX 6900 XT. And it’s that exorbitant value aside (4660 {dollars} to change, 3831 euros) this new GPU integrates a liquid cooling AIO with a single fan that can cool each the chip itself and its new recollections.

That’s as a result of the retailer curiously quotes 18Gbps pace on GDDR6 (+ 12.5%), so AMD would have stockpiled the new Samsung chips in a sure quantity to convey better efficiency to the card, particularly if we take into consideration that it’s going to attain the next clock pace.

Specifically, the figures which might be dealt with in accordance to mentioned retailer are 2250 MHz for Game Clock Y 2435 MHz for Boost Clock (+ 8.2%, an attention-grabbing climb indisputably. Another of the sections that’s most placing is the proven fact that it solely consists of two 8-pin connectors for its energy provide as an alternative of the widespread three of its older sister.

This might point out that the consumption is nearer to the RX 6900 XT than to the new chip for the supposed RX 6900 XTX. It is true {that a} decrease temperature implies decrease consumption due to the decrease voltage required at the identical frequency, however we have no idea to what extent that is fulfilled to take away an influence connector. In any case, AMD has had a reference GPU by water for years, we could also be dealing with the identical case with some enhancements.

The query is clear, will it compete with the RTX 3090 in efficiency with a decrease actual value?
