AMD Launches the Radeon RX 6900XT GPU

AMD recently launched its fastest gaming GPU to date. The Radeon RX 6900XT is built on AMD‘s RDNA 2 gaming architecture. It aims to be the ultimate 4K gaming GPU. It’s equipped with 80 enhanced compute units, 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM, and clock speeds that go beyond 2.8 GHz.

The RDNA 2 gaming architecture aims to power the next-generation of PC desktops, laptops, and consoles, and this time, mobile gaming. RDNA 2 offers twice the overall performance compared to the first generation RDNA on the 7nm process node.

It also features Smart Access Memory which takes advantage of the B550 and X570 chipset’s capability to directly access high-speed GDDR6 graphic memory, enabling increased performance in select titles.

AMD Infinity Cache is a high-performance, last-level data cache that gives 1440p and 4k gaming the highest level of detail. The 128-mb on-die cache reduces latency and even lowers power consumption while boosting your overall gaming performance.

And for AMD‘s answer to the green team’s RTX ON, DXR (DirectX Ray Tracing) now gives AMD cards the functionality of a ray accelerator engine. It gives the AMD RDNA 2 cards the capability to deliver real-time lighting, shadow, and reflection realism previously found exclusively on RTX cards. And to ensure performance is not sacrificed with ray tracing, AMD introduced the AMD FidelityFX feature which enables hybrid rendering to give your games the perfect balance of image quality and performance.


The Radeon RX 6900 XT is available on with an SRP of $999.
