ASUS Radeon RX 6900 XT ROG STRIX LC (Liquid Cooled)

The ASUS ROG STRIX LC Radeon RX 6900 XT is a full-on liquid-cooled design that makes use of the ROG STRIX Radeon RX 6900 XT PCB but couples it with the power of liquid cooling. The liquid cooler features a 240mm radiator that has braided tubing leading to a custom pump model that has been designed specifically for the Navi 21 "RDNA 2" GPU. The shroud on the card itself is gorgeous with a stunning display of ASUS's AURA SYNC RGB lighting and a futuristic shroud design. The shroud also comes with a blower-style fan that will blow air through the internal chassis of the graphics card.

ASUS ROG STRIX RX 6900 XT LC Features:

  • Full-coverage cold plate brings liquid cooling to GPU die and memory
  • On-board cooling for power-delivery is handled by a blower-style fan and low-profile heatsink.
  • 240mm radiator balances compatibility and performance.
  • 600mm tubing for compatibility with EATX chassis and alternative mounts
  • Super Alloy Power II includes premium alloy chokes, solid polymer capacitors, and an array of high-current power stages.
  • ASUS FanConnect II equips a hybrid-controlled fan header for optimal system cooling.
  • GPU Tweak II provides intuitive performance tweaking, thermal controls, and system monitoring.

As for the internal chassis, a large cold plate is said to cool both the GPU silicon and GDDR6 VRAM featured on the PCB. The graphics card is definitely going to be a standout design for the Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card, offering a premium cooling design for a hefty premium. The card will be powered by a triple 8-pin connector configuration and will feature a nice factory overclock. Expect the card to cost over $1200 US when it launches.

PowerColor Radeon RX 6900 XT Red Devil Limited Edition

The Radeon RX 6900 XT Red Devil Limited Edition graphics card is going to be PowerColor's top of the line offerings and will feature a triple-fan and triple-slot cooling design. Each fan on the card features a total of nine fan blades which direct air towards the internal heatsink assembly. The card itself features a brand new design aesthetic on the shroud which has large LED bars that lead towards the rear end, giving a more devilish look to this card.

Both the front shroud and backplate are made out of aluminum alloy metal to provide a premium aesthetic. Underneath the shroud is a massive aluminum heatsink array with seven thick copper heat pipes (3x8mm & 4x6mm) that run through the heatsink. There are exhaust vents on the backplate that push air out for optimal airflow on the Red Devil cards.

The clock speeds for the card is rated at 2340 MHz boost and would utilize a 14+2 phase VRM with DrMOS, high polymer caps, and receive power through triple 8-pin connectors. Some standout features of the PowerColor Radeon RX 6900 XT Red Devil series include:

  • Back Plate The metal backplate strengthens and protects the card and offers better heat dissipation.

  • Dual BIOS Choosing the BIOS fits your need: better overclocking or silent operation.

  • Stronger components, Better performance DrMOS provides superior power efficiency and better performance while high-polymer capacitors offer uncompromising reliability. Red Devil is armed with stronger components: a 14+2 phase VRM guarantees better overclocking and stability for true gamers.

  • Cooler Equips with 3X8Φ and 4X6Φ heat pipes and 25% more heat sink surface area to offer cooler and quieter performance.

  • Triple Fan The 2X 100mm and 1X 90mm optimized static pressure fan design provides more airflow and better cooling circulation.

  • RGB Featuring RGB on the side, shroud, and backplate, the PowerColor Red Devil offers customized and personalized colors.

Display outputs on the PowerColor Radeon RX 6800 XT & RX 6800 Red Devil include three DP and 1 HDMI port. The card will be available in both Limited overclock and non-limited edition variants. A premium of $200-$300 US should be expected for both cards.

Gigabyte Radeon RX 6900 XT Gaming OC

Videocardz presents the first pictures of the Gigabyte Radeon RX 6900 XT Gaming OC. The Gigabyte Radeon RX 6800 XT Gaming OC comes with its Windforce 3X cooling system and features a 2.5 slot design too. The card features three fans with 11 fan blades each and has a plastic shroud on the front which retains a matte black color theme. The card is powered by a triple 8-pin power config and features a standard 2 HDMI, 2 DP display output configuration.

Those who want extra should wait for Gigabyte's AORUS lineup for the Radeon RX 6900 XT series graphics cards which would rock a more impressive cooling solution with all the flashy RGB LEDs, one can ask for.
