GIGABYTE RX 6900 XT GAMING OC, technical characteristics

This is the primary customized graphics card, based mostly on the AMD RX 6900 XT, designed by the individuals of GIGABYTE.

The AMD RX 6900 XT is the biggest and strongest graphics card within the RX 6000 vary based mostly on AMD’s personal RDNA 2 structure, amongst its specs is help for Variable Rate Shading and Ray Tracing by {hardware}, all with a configuration 80 Compute Units and the highly effective Infinity Cache.

All which means graphics playing cards based mostly on the newest AMD structure can attain excessive clock speeds, which is taken benefit of by this practice GIGABYTE mannequin.

The aesthetics of the RX 6900 XT GAMING OC is similar to the GAMING OC mannequin based mostly on the RX 6800 XT, which isn’t shocking since each make use of the identical PCB, since we’re speaking about two graphics playing cards based mostly on the Navi 21 chip and the identical quantity of reminiscence and 16 GB of GDDR6 reminiscence at 16 Gbps on a 256-bit bus.

Being a customized card, the one factor that maintains the usual AMD design is the GPU itself and the VRAM, the remainder of the cardboard has been custom-made by GIGABYTE. Among its distinctive parts are a totally customized PCB,

RX 6900 XT GAMING OCIts cooling system has three aluminum fins which are strung by six copper heatpipes with a thickness of 6 mm, these make contact with the GPU and VRAM via a copper plate, whereas on the identical time a secondary plate extracts the warmth emitted by the VRMs. It additionally has three WINDFORCE 3X followers with alternating rotation between them.

Ability to realize excessive clock speeds

What differentiates the GIGABYTE RX 6900 XT OC from its little sister is the truth that its VRM configuration has been improved, which is regular on account of the truth that the cardboard makes use of three PCI Express 8-pin connectors like the remainder of the graphics playing cards based mostly on the AMD RX 6900 XT, whereas the configurations based mostly on the AMD RX 6800 XT use two PCIe connectors as customary.

But the similarities finish there, Since the GIGABYTE mannequin can attain 2250 MHz in Game Clock and 2285 MHz in Boost Clock, it additionally has an elevated energy consumption restrict in comparison with the usual AMD design. This velocity will be touched via the BIOS that comes by default, but when what we’d like at sure instances is for the GPU to go quieter then we will activate the Silent BIOS at any time. since we face a graph with a twin BIOS configuration.

Another distinction concerning the characteristics of this RX 6900 XT OC in comparison with the usual AMD mannequin is that the USB-C port has been changed and this card has two HDMI 2.1 video outputs and two DisplayPort 1.4a outputs.
