The existence of the AMD RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled is one thing that we’ve got identified for months, however its launch as a industrial product in Europe had not been confirmed till now. Well, with out warning and, due to this fact, with out anybody anticipating it, the Radeon Technology Group has launched this top-of-the-range RX 6000. What are its specs and value?
Until comparatively not too long ago in case you wished to have an AMD RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled to mount on your Gaming PC then you possibly can solely get it inside pre-built computer systems. In different phrases, since most of 1 factor can also be of one other it was unimaginable to get one to mount it inside your personal PC.
This graphics card stands out for the reality of utilizing liquid cooling to chill its highly effective GPU, the Navi 21 XTXH, a bined model of the identical GPU utilized in the customary RX 6900 XT and with simply the identical configuration. What’s so particular about it? The incontrovertible fact that it can attain larger clock speeds, however because of the binning course of these are scarce, which makes them dearer.
The AMD RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled arrive in Europe
Yes, it’s attainable to get this highly effective AMD graphics card in the European market, particularly in the German MindFactory retailer, the place a customized model manufactured by PowerColor is at the moment on sale for € 1749, though in very restricted models. This is a shock since we didn’t count on such a graphics card for the gaming market, certainly, AMD has not formally made any announcement.
What is it that differentiates this AMD RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled of the customary mannequin? Well, at the GPU degree, nothing, because it has the identical configuration of 80 Compute Units with 128 MB of Infinity Cache, nonetheless, the new mannequin can attain larger clock speeds, nonetheless, it doesn’t attain them because of decrease consumption and therefore the liquid cooling system, which can also be used to chill GDDR6 reminiscence.
The decrease temperatures reached mean you can set your Game Clock to 2250 MHz and from Boost to 2435 MHz, as compared with the 2015 MHz and the 2250 MHz of the customary RX 6900 XT respectively. Which signifies that the liquid-cooled mannequin runs at Boost velocity all the time. And what about GDDR6? Well, this has gone from a velocity of 16 Gbps to 18 Gbps, so the bandwidth between GPU and VRAM is now 576 GB / s.
Candy for the miners
If we mirror a bit we’ll see that it’s greater than clear that the RX 6900 Liquid Cooled was designed for AMD itself and its companions to promote them to mining RIGs and never for the gaming market, so the look for the gaming market is anecdotally, it’s extra violates the circumstances on the sale of this mannequin of graphics card that AMD gave just a few months in the past, however since there’s a PowerColor mannequin it’s clear that they’ve retracted this limitation.
Taking into consideration that the RX 6900 XT had an official value of 1000 euros, raised to far more the results of mining, the incontrovertible fact that its Liquid Cooled model sells for nearly 1800 euros makes it out of the financial vary of the followers to video video games on PC. The secret’s this mannequin? Being capable of constantly keep the Boost velocity of the customary mannequin and sooner VRAM, which is vital for mining.
