Recently, leaks of the RX 6900 XTX have appeared suddenly. The leaks are based on Sapphire’s AMD reference-looking graphics card, which looks similar to the leaked RX 6900 XTX. The card has been recently spotted in a Chinese pre-built system and now has been listed as a retail product in Brazil. There are no Sapphire logos that question the authenticity of the AMD-reference design, but it looks similar.
AMD did not reveal anything about Radeon RX 6900 XT with liquid cooling at the Computex 2021. However, there is a chance that we might get some info during the dedicated event for FidelityFX Super Resolution.
It is a fact that AMD has released a new Navi 21 XTXH GPU with increased power limits for some ultra-high-end AIB models. This made it easy to compete against NVIDIA’s RTX 3090 in some benchmarks. Unfortunately, it is hard to find even the vanilla XT variant, and don’t forget about the card’s high price these days. It can be concluded that AMD and NVIDIA no longer care and they just want to release what they had planned for months.
Currently, the Sapphire RX 6900 XT LC (21308-02-10G is listed on a Brazillian retail store, where they estimated the product to be shipped by 30 June. It is listed for a questionable price of 23,530 Brazilian Reals or almost 4,660 USD. In the product description, the retailer mentions 18 Gbps memory speed which was not expected from a GDDR6 graphics card. It might be a domain of GDDR6X, but it is possible with non-X memory technology considering AMD finds the suppliers for it. Videocardz thinks that this is a typo as RX 6900 XT features 16 Gbps memory, so this model should be no exception.
Previously, AMD has released graphic cards with liquid cooling under each of its Radepm generations. The recent one was RX Vega 64 Luqid Edition, which came after Radeon Pro Duo. Then came the dual-GPU option, just as R9 295X2 based on Hawaii architecture.
