Gigabyte Radeon RX 6900 XT GAMING OC

It appears that premium Radeon RX 6900 XT custom graphics cards will all ship with three 8-pin power connectors. We have already reported on ASRock Taichi, ASUS ROG STRIX LC and PowerColor Red Devil – each of these cards has three connectors. Today we can confirm that Radeon RX 6900 XT GAMING OC from Gigabyte will be no exception.

AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT features 5120 Stream Processors, 80 Ray Accelerators, and 128 ROPs. This flagship Radeon graphics card based on RDNA 2 architecture is a close match to RTX 3080 and in some cases RTX 3090. It also comes with 16GB of GDDR6 memory which is indeed less than RTX 3090’s 24GB, but it is also a lot more than RTX 3080’s 10GB. NVIDIA has plans to release the RTX 3080 Ti with 20GB memory, but at this point is unclear when exactly will the card appear.

Meanwhile, the situation with AMD Radeon RX 6000 GPU supply is not great. Both reference cards and custom designs are pretty much nonexistent on the market. Thus, graphics cards such as RX 6900 XT GAMING OC may end up costing a lot more than they should, once they reach the market and once retailers realize how unique the items they have for sale are.

Gigabyte RX 6900 XT Gaming OC features a non-standard display output configuration: dual DisplayPort 1.4 and dual HDMI 2.1. The reference design features 2x DP, HDMI, and USB Type-C, which the GAMING OC unfortunately does not have.

The clock speeds of this model are currently unknown. The graphics card should launch by the end of this month.
