Please note that this post is tagged as a rumor.
The latest entry in Newegg’s official blog lists Radeon RX 6000 series specs.
Radeon RX 6900XT
The Newegg Insider is a company blog advertised on the retailer’s front page, ran by contributing journalists, who may or may not have access to confidential information that the retailers possess. The Insider blog is used to provide product overviews and buying guides for customers. The retailer also has a YouTube channel with over 0.5 million subscribers.
Newegg one of the largest PC hardware retailers in the United States. It is to be expected that the company will have access to inventory information ahead of the next-generation product launch. This information is likely to be embargoed and not made public.
The specifications listed in a blog do seem to follow the latest rumors, but not appear to be fully correct. The Radeon RX 6000 series is expected to feature higher clock speeds compared to the first-generation RDNA series. Just yesterday we covered a leak from macOS 11 firmware indicating that Radeon PRO series based on RDNA2 architecture will feature clock speeds between 2050 to 2500 MHz. Higher clock speeds are also present in next-generation gaming consoles featuring RDNA2 technology. Thus, the RX 6000 series is expected to feature at least 2.0 GHz boost clocks, this is likely not reflected in the table posted by Newegg Insider where the data points towards 1500 MHz base clock for all three SKUs listed.
The specifications of the RX 6900XT and RX 6700XT appear to assume that both cards would offer the full Navi 21 and Navi 22 GPU configurations respectively. The same leak, which I linked earlier to, also confirmed that Navi 21 features up to 80 CUs (5120 Stream Processors), while Navi 22 will top at 40 CUs (2560 SPs).
Interestingly the table touches on a ‘sensitive’ and much-discussed topic, which is memory configuration. Rumors point towards a maximum of 16 GB capacity for the high-end gaming Navi 21 with a possibility of scaling it down to 12 GB across a 192-bit bus. None of this data has yet been confirmed.
Therefore we believe that the specifications listed by Newegg are pure speculation from a contributing writer.
