Gigabyte finally unveils its flagship Radeon graphics card.
GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6900 XT GAMING OC 16G
The manufacturer has not yet confirmed its plans for the AORUS Master series, which were already shown for the RX 6800 series. Thus the Gaming OC is currently the fastest Radeon graphics card Gigabyte is currently listing on its website.
The RX 6900 XT Gaming OC is a triple-slot and triple-fan design measuring 28.6 x 11.8 cm. The graphics card also features a non-standard display output configuration of dual DisplayPort 1.4a and dual HDMI 2.1. (by default there are dual DP, one HDMI, and USB Type-C connectors).
Gigabyte does not reveal any details on the PCB design and cooler internals, however, it appears that the cooler has two large heatsinks with a large copper plate attached to at least six copper heat pipes. The PCB features three 8-pin power connectors, setting it apart from cards such as NITRO+ or ROG STRIX, which are both limited to dual 8-pin connectors. The Gaming OC also features dual-BIOS, but the manufacturer does not specify the specifications for both modes.
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT features RDNA2-based 7nm Navi 21 XTX GPU with 5120 Stream Processors on board (it’s a full-fat processor). This SKU is also equipped with 16GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16 Gbps (512 GB/s). The GPU also features 128MB of AMD Infinity Cache.
The RX 6900 XT has an MSRP of 999 USD, thus this custom model by Gigabyte is expected to cost more. However, the company has not yet revealed the pricing, nor has it been confirmed when the card will be in stock.

LARGE COPPER PLATE & HEAT-PIPE
With direct contact to the GPU and VRAM, the large copper plate combines the composite heat pipes to efficiently transfer heat generated from the interior cores to the heat sink.
PROTECTION METAL BACK PLATE
The metal back plate not only provides an aesthetical shape, but also enhances the structure of the graphics card to provide complete protection.
Silent mode will provide a quieter experience. The mode switch requires a reboot to take effect. The default is OC mode.
EXTREME DURABILITY AND OVERCLOCKING
The graphics card uses the better power phase design to allow the MOSFET to operate at lower temperature, and over-temperature protection design and load balancing for each MOSFET, plus the Ultra Durable certified chokes and capacitors, to provide excellent performance and longer system life.
FRIENDLY PCB DESIGN
Fully automated production process ensures top quality of the circuit boards and eliminates sharp protrusions of the solder connectors seen on the conventional PCB surface. This friendly design prevents your hands from getting cut or inadvertently damaging components when making your build.
