Today marks the launch of the 6900XT graphics card from AMD and, while it is not set to release until later today, we’ve already seen the first custom model appear from ASUS in the form of their ASUS TUF Gaming Radeon RX 6900 XT Graphics Card. This is just one of many models we should be seeing today that are based on the full-fat Navi 21 XTX “Big Navi” GPU die. The card is already listed on ASUS’s webpage and was spotted by one of our favorite leakers – Momomo_US.
Let’s take a look at the design of the ASUS TUF Gaming Radeon. The GPU comes with a triple-fan design, with two 11-blade fans and a single 13-blade in the middle. ASUS is saying that the extra blades and full-height ring on the center blade help to boost static pressure and blast air directly onto the GPU heat spreader.
The card also features 0dB fan technology and houses some high-quality electric components that all work together to deliver stable power to both the GPU and memory. The TUF Gaming lineup will feature a 2.9 slot design and a MaxContact design heatsink which includes a massive aluminum fin array equipped with seven copper heat pipes and a solid nickel-base plate for efficient heat dissipation.
These new GPUs share the same display configuration as the ROG STRIX Radeon RX 6800 variants with triple DisplayPort 1.4a ports and dual HDMI 2.1 ports/ The backplate is soli-aluminum and there’s also a cut-out for the third fan as the cooler extends beyond the PCB.
It will be powered by dual 8-pin connectors and making use of a fully custom PCB design. We know that the stock RX 6900XT comes with a clock limit of 3.0Ghz compared to the 2.8Ghz of the 6800X, but we don’t have any specifics for this model just yet.
