Serial leaker _rogame has confirmed the purported memory sizes for AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards. The flagship card, which is currently being referred to as the Radeon RX 6900 XT in rumor circles, will boast 16 GB of VRAM, while its lesser siblings (Radeon RX 6800/6700 XT, perhaps?) will feature 12 GB of VRAM.

Those numbers are a solid improvement over the memory sizes of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series. As you’ll recall, the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 only come with 10 GB and 8 GB of VRAM, respectively. (While the GeForce RTX 3090 packs 24 GB of memory, we’re assuming that the Radeon RX 6900 XT will line up with the GeForce RTX 3080 in terms of price/performance.)

Red team’s memory counts are plausible based on GIGABYTE’s leak from last week, which effectively confirmed 20 GB and 16 GB variants of the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070. Why else would NVIDIA be in such a rush to pump out SUPER/Ti variants?

And according to a separate rumor from Coreteks, the Radeon RX 6900 XT will feature boost clocks in the 2,100 MHz range. Specifications are supposedly being finalized next week, so expect plenty of fun leaks in between now and AMD’s official Radeon unveil event on October 28.
