There may be custom-design versions of the Radeon RX 6900 XT after all. Previously, the rumor mill indicated this card would be an AMD-exclusive, or at least for some time. Now VideoCardz writes that AMD is in talks with its add-in board (AIB) partners about custom cards. The Radeon RX 6900 XT launches on December 8th.
AMD Radeon RX 6900XT and RX 6800XT have a lot in common. The cards share the same clock speeds: 2015 MHz game clock and 2250 MHz boost clock. The SKUs also share the same memory layout: 16GB GDDR6 256-bit. More importantly, though, these cards use the same Navi 21 GPU with the same power requirements (300W). Thus, a custom Radeon RX 6900XT design would require very limited resources from AMD partners, as the board designs are ready, and cooling solutions are already preconfigured for the same power envelope.
