A photo showing an unknown graphics card design has been leaked.

Is this AMD Radeon RX 6800XT?

Could this be the Radeon RX 6800XT PCB? Likely yes, as it shows yet unseen board design for a custom board. The PCB is clearly a prototype with missing memory modules. The VRMs are also covered with oversized heatsink, likely because the board is in the evaluation phase right now.

We believe that this is either a custom AMD Radeon RX 6800XT (Navi 21 XT) or RX 6000 (Navi 21 XL), because the RX 6900XT is rumored to be AMD exclusive and should only launch a reference design, while this card is clearly custom.

The GPU is unfortunately masked out and we can’t see the processor itself. The board is powered by two 8-pin power connectors, similarly to the reference design, AMD has already officially showcased more than a month ago.

AMD is set to announce its Radeon RX 6000 series on October 28th, so in less than a week.
