A picture of what is claimed to be an engineering board with the AMD Radeon RX 6800XT GPU hit the web. It shows a PCB with missing memory modules and oversized heatsinks for the VRMs. Presumably, this is a prototype created by one of AMD's AIB partners.

VideoCardz thinks this is either the AMD Radeon RX 6800XT (Navi 21 XT) or RX 6000 (Navi 21 XL). The Radeon RX 6900 XT flagship model is reportedly an AMD-exclusive, at least for the foreseeable future.
The GPU is unfortunately masked out and we can’t see the processor itself. The board is powered by two 8-pin power connectors, similarly to the reference design, AMD has already officially showcased more than a month ago.
AMD will introduce its Big Navi lineup on October 28th. Three models are expected, with initial shipments sometime in November.
