AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT custom boards shown
AMD today announced that on March 18th both reference and custom models from AIBs will be available. Most of these designs have been shown for the first time.
The selection of custom Radeon RX 6700 XT models will not be limited to a single model. The cards that were showcased by AMD only present the top tier in the lineup. Thanks to AMD’s official slides, we learn that ASUS will launch the ROG STRIX Gaming model and ASRock will have Phantom Gaming. All designs that were shown are triple-fan, except for MSI GAMING X.
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT features Navi 22 GPU with 2560 Stream Processors. Each of these cards has 12GB GDDR6 memory onboard and will either be equipped with dual 8-pin power connectors or rely on a reference configuration of 6+8-pin. By default, the RX 6700XT has a TBP of 230W, but custom models such as the cards pictured below are expected to have this value increased, either due to higher clock speeds or added features such as RGB lighting.
By showing these cards AMD is making a statement, that Navi22 is launching with a wide range of custom cards from partners. This was not the case with the Navi21 model, which was limited to reference designs at launch.
