Sapphire has officially debuted its new flagship air-cooled Toxic AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card after teasing it on Facebook. The new card borrows some design traits from the previous NITRO+ series such as a three-fan cooling solution, but it features a new gold/orange motif and ARGB. The Tri-X cooling solution also features a combined memory and VRM cooling module with two heat pipes running underneath, which is said to improve thermal conductivity by 38 percent over the former design. The 7 nm GPU is believed to be a Navi 21 XTXH GPU.
|GPU||AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT Graphics Card|
AMD RDNA™ 2 Architecture
|Engine Clock||Boost Clock: Up to 2425 MHz|
Game Clock: Up to 2235 MHz
Boost Clock is the maximum frequency achievable on the GPU running bursty workload. Boost clock achievability, frequency, and sustainability will vary based on several factors, including but not limited to: thermal conditions and variation in application and workloads.
Game Clock is the expected GPU clock when running typical gaming applications, set to typical TGP(Total Graphics Power). Actual individual game clock results may vary.
