MSI Announces the Radeon™ RX 6900 XT GAMING X TRIO Graphics Card

[Taipei, Taiwan] MSI is proud to officially announce the Radeon™ RX 6900 XT GAMING X TRIO graphics card, powered by the groundbreaking AMD RDNA™ 2 gaming architecture. AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT graphics cards provide new levels of performance, incredible visual fidelity and advanced features to power amazing 4K gaming experiences.


The AMD RDNA™ 2 gaming architecture at the core of the AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT Series is designed to deliver the optimal combination of performance and efficiency. It features a breakthrough high-speed design and enhanced power efficiency, designed to deliver higher performance with lower power consumption, and a new cache hierarchy designed to minimize data movement, latency and power usage. In addition, support for DirectX® 12 Ultimate provides gamers with a powerful blend of raytracing, compute and rasterized effects to elevate games to a new level of realism.

The Radeon™ RX 6900 XT GAMING X TRIO graphics card has been refreshed with a new look while maintaining the same great balance between the performance, cooling and quiet operation that gamers demand. Mystic Light adorns the exterior of the graphics card, illuminating color in sync with the rest of the PC through Mystic Light Sync and Ambient Link, all controlled with the Dragon Center software utility.

The Radeon™ RX 6900 XT GAMING X TRIO graphics card also features:

  • Torx Fan 4.0 – A new fan design features pairs of fan blades bound together with an outer link, forming a rim that focuses airflow into the updated TRI FROZR 2 cooling system.
  • Core Pipes – Precision-machined for maximum contact over the GPU and to spread the heat along the full length of the heatsink for optimal cooling.
  • Metal Backplate – A matte-finish backplate not only reinforces the graphics card, but also provides efficient passive cooling with the implementation of thermal pads.


MSI Afterburner is the world’s most recognized and widely used graphics card overclocking software. It gives gamers full control of their graphics card and enables them to monitor key system metrics in real-time. Afterburner provides a free performance boost for a smooth in-game experience thanks to higher FPS. The latest version of Afterburner supports the new Radeon™ RX 6900 XT Series graphics cards by MSI.

Gamers can customize graphics card performance in the software, such as with Gaming Mode that instantly optimizes the hardware for the best gaming experience, including SSD, monitor and network settings.
