When rumors about the Radeon RX 6900 XT first popped up, word on the street was that this would be an AMD exclusive card. There was some talk about AMD sharing the chip with its AIBs at a later point and it seems this is now indeed happening. VideoCardz picked up whispers heard by that indicate custom-design Radeon RX 6900 XT cards are in the works. These custom cards are expected sometime in early 2021 and will reportedly look similar to Radeon RX 6800 XT designs.

The reference card from AMD launches on December 7th for $999 but the real question is how much volume the company will ship. Supply of Navi21 GPUs isn't enough to meet demand so it will most likely be very hard to get your hands on a card unless you want to pay a big premium.
AMD is set to launch its Radeon RX 6900 XT reference SKU on December 8th. The graphics card features 80 Compute Units with 5120 Stream Processors enabled. This is the full-fat variant of the Big Navi that is officially targeting NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 in AMD’s own benchmark comparison. The graphics card will officially retail at 999 USD, which is 1/3 cheaper than RTX 3090. It is currently unclear how many cards will be available for sale at launch, but one would guess it won’t be overwhelming.
