The graphics card is still in the development process, for instance, the PCB has not been finalized yet. This implies that the RX 6900 XT has a different PCB than RX 6800 XT model, possibly with more power connectors.

The hosts of the MSI Insider show confirmed that the graphics card is expected to launch in February. However, this will depend on how the manufacturing process progresses over January. If there is any delay or shortage of any component, the graphics card will likely launch in March, because in mid-February is the Chinese New Year and that means no graphics card will be produced at that time, the MSI employees explain.
