AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card priced
AMD has recently announced the global availability of its latest graphics card, the Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Designed and optimized for gaming, the graphics card supports games at 4K and features overclocking capabilities. Just like the other 6000 series of graphics cards, it is built based on AMD RDNA 2 gaming architecture. It has 80 enhanced Compute Units, 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM, and clock speeds beyond 2.8 GHz.
With the AMD RDNA 2 gaming architecture, the GPU doubles the overall performance by bringing in up to 54 percent performance-per-watt compared to first-generation RDNA architecture on the 7nm process node.
Other key features of the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT are the following:
Smart Access Memory (SAM): When paired with the Ryzen 5000 Series processors and AMD B550 or X570 motherboards, SAM allows AMD Ryzen processors to directly access high-speed GDDR6 graphics memory, accelerating CPU processing and increasing performance in select titles.
AMD Infinity Cache: A high-performance, last-level data cache suitable for 4K and 1440p gaming with the highest level of detail enabled. 128 MB of on-die cache reduces latency and power consumption, delivering higher overall gaming performance than traditional architectural designs.
DirectX Raytracing (DXR): Adding a high-performance, fixed-function Ray Accelerator engine to each compute unit, AMD RDNA 2-based graphics cards are optimized to deliver real-time lighting, shadow, and reflection realism with DXR. When paired with AMD FidelityFX, which enables hybrid rendering, developers can combine rasterized and ray-traced effects to ensure an optimal combination of image quality and performance.
The Radeon RX 6900 XT is available starting today from global retailers and on AMD website for USD 999.
