ASUS might be planning custom Radeon RX 6900 series
ASUS has submitted quite a few graphics cards to the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory office. The list does not only include the Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6900 series, but also GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. We also get further confirmation on the ROG STIRX WHITE series, which we teased on Twitter a few days ago.
There is a small confusion around the new submission though. For reasons unknown, ASUS used Radeon RX 6900 non-XT codename instead of the RX 6900 XT (the only SKU AMD officially introduced). AMD did not confirm, however, that the 6900 series would be available under custom series, but this is a second AIB known to be preparing such graphics cards, so it is safe to assume that this is indeed happening. Whether ASUS used the wrong code, or there is indeed the RX 6900 non-X SKU planned, we don’t know yet.
According to the list, ASUS would launch the ROG STRIX LC series of the RX 6900 (XT) SKU. The regular ROG STRIX is also planned accompanied by the mid-range TUF Gaming series. Meanwhile, the DUAL and DUAL EVO series might be exclusive to the slowest Navi 21 SKU, the RX 6800 non-XT.
The listing also confirmed GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with 8GB under the Phoenix series. These cards are usually single-fan designs, so this could be the first Mini-ITX Ampere GPU. The ROG STRIX WHITE series will feature RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3070 SKUs, the EEC submission also suggests.
AMD is set to launch the custom Radeon RX 6800 series on November 25th. The reference RX 6900XT is expected to debut on December 8th, but the date for custom designs has never been confirmed. Meanwhile, the RTX 3060 Ti from NVIDIA is set to launch on December 2nd.
