AMD RX 6900 XT Graphics Card Review 2021
Enormous Navi is at last here: the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT. A very good quality lover illustrations card that existed exclusively in the deepest desires of aficionados for longer than a year—and in the Radeon Technology Group labs for without a doubt any longer—the RX 6900 XT is a definitive articulation of the RDNA 2 design.
A known amount since October, the RX 6900 XT will be a recognizable sight for anybody that read our RX 6800 XT audit. It includes a similar triple-fan cooler plan, memory setup, and even TGP and clock speeds as the RX 6800 XT. Henceforth why a lot of what I talked about back in November in regards to the noteworthy updates to the RDNA 2 engineering is as yet substantial concerning the more costly $999 card.
In any case, the RX 6900 XT focuses on Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3090, a Titan on the whole however name, and you’d be directly in reasoning something must’ve changed to go anyplace near understanding that grand objective. There has been one key change to the equipment: Where the RX 6800 XT incorporates 72 register units (CUs) for a sum of 4,608 stream processors, the RX 6900 XT accompanies 80 CUs and 5,120 stream processors.
Furthermore, I need to say the possibility of a card that approaches Nvidia’s $1,499 illustrations card for 66% of the cost had me energized for quite a while. All the amped-up showcasing from AMD’s ‘The place where Gaming Begins’ done something amazing for me, and any feelings of trepidation I maybe should’ve had for a $1,000 designs card stopped casually between the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 liquefied away like delicate serve on a hot day.
What are the AMD RX 6900 XT specs?
The AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT specs sheet is as completely stacked as it gets. In any case, we should begin with the center fixing: RDNA 2. As I referenced already, on the off chance that you need a more definite summary of AMD’s fresh out of the plastic new RDNA 2 design, you need just look to our RX 6800 XT survey’s engineering area. There are a ton of upgrades over the original RDNA gaming engineering to discuss, which probably requests its own profound jump, however for the time being, how about we center on the particulars of the RX 6900 XT’s execution.
A similar Navi 21 GPU dwells inside the Radeon RX 6900 XT as the two RX 6800-arrangement illustrations cards we’ve effectively surveyed, which means you’re getting an indistinguishable, and powerful, double register unit design that is customized for gaming—though on a somewhat bigger scope with the 80 CU RX 6900 XT. That makes for a sum of 5,120 stream processors—a 11 percent increment over the RX 6800 XT.
That accompanies a cost increment, as well. The RX 6900 XT is valued at $999, while the RX 6800 XT is accessible (in the event that you can discover one in stock) for $649. Both the RX 6800 XT and its little kin, the $579 RX 6800, are to a great extent inaccessible at this moment, nonetheless. We speculate the dispatch of the RX 6900 XT to go similarly, if not be all the more scantily accessible as most elite GPUs will in general be fabricated at lower amounts.
On the off chance that you can get your hands on one, you’ll be talented a unimaginably thoroughly examined design, with upgrades to clocks and force conveyance guaranteeing the center GPU is running similar to a well-orchestrated symphony. Indeed, even with a high center include and TGP in accordance with the RX 6800 XT, the RX 6900 XT effectively breaks 2.2GHz timekeepers under load.
To empower such a chip to work inside a similar 300W TGP as the RX 6800 XT, AMD is utilizing a modest bunch of different improvements for each Navi 21 GPU bound for the RX 6900 XT. A binning interaction guarantees the Navi 21 GPU inside the RX 6900 XT is probably the best example out of TSMC’s 7nm fabs, and everyone has been painstakingly chosen for its capacity to meet execution necessities while holding power proficiency.
There’s additionally a base VRM power conveyance necessity for all RX 6900 XT illustrations cards, with the reference AMD model contribution 16-stage VRM power conveyance. That, AMD says, is the way to keeping up comparative wattage to the lower-spec model while keeping up more prominent execution. That and the binning, obviously.
What’s more, indeed, that is affirmation that there will be outsider models of the RX 6900 XT. These will show up not long after dispatch. For the present, nonetheless, the RX 6900 XT might be accessible in reference clothing, precisely the same heatsink and cooler plan found on the RX 6800 XT. That is one way that the RX 6900 XT has the RTX 3090 promptly beat, as well, it’s not even close as colossal. However it is still bounty fit for dealing with the warmth created by that 519 mm2 GPU, running somewhat more smoking than the RX 6800 XT under load at 74°C, to the second-level card’s 68°C.
Maybe the most essential capacity added with RDNA 2 is beam following ability, notwithstanding, made conceivable by the incorporation of AMD’s Ray Accelerators.
These Ray Accelerators are devoted beam following equipment speed increase blocks combined close to the conventional delivering pipeline. There’s one Ray Accelerator for each CU, thus the RX 6900 XT accompanies the most beam following silicon of the parcel at 80. These squares are explicitly intended to speed up the BVH (bouncing volume progression) crossing step, which would ordinarily be a very register substantial advance for a GPU without speed increase, as we’ve seen with 16-arrangement and 10-arrangement beam following on more seasoned age Nvidia GPUs.
