GIGABYTE has launched two additional custom Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics cards, the AORUS Radeon RX 6900 XT MASTER 16G and Radeon RX 6900 XT GAMING OC 16G. The former features some of the company’s most premium GPU features, such as MAX-Covered cooling, LCD edge view, and RGB Fusion 2.0, while the latter offers a similar WINDFORCE 3X cooling system that comprises three unique blade fans to keep temperatures in check.

“The MAX-Covered cooling features three unique blade fans with a wind claw design and alternate spinning to deliver optimal airflow across the entire heatsink,” GIGABYTE wrote in regard to the AORUS Radeon RX 6900 XT MASTER 16G. “AORUS MASTER also features aerospace-grade PCB coating, a Dual BIOS with quiet operation mode and ULTRA DURABLE certified components. It is recommended for enthusiasts who want the ultimate 4k gaming performance with colorful RGB lighting.”

“WINDFORCE fans utilize graphene nano lubricant, which can extend fan life by 2.1 times, delivering nearly the lifespan of the double ball bearing while providing quiet operation,” GIGABYTE noted for the Radeon RX 6900 XT GAMING OC 16G. “RGB fusion 2.0 allows users to adjust the color of the lights and various special effects and synchronize with other AORUS devices. Due to its ULTRA DURABLE certified components, advanced cooling technology and custom RGB lighting, GAMING OC is the best choice for performance gamers.”

GIGABYTE did not share pricing or availability information for either model. It doesn’t appear that the product page for the AORUS Radeon RX 6900 XT MASTER 16G is live yet either, but we’ve copied the specifications for the two Radeon RX 6900 XT GAMING 16G models below.
