HotHardware has a review of the PowerColor Red Devil Ultimate Radeon RX 6900 XT
. We almost missed it but VideoCard's keen eyes spotted
that this card features a higher-binned Navi 21 GPU.
Faster than the Liquid Devil
Officially, the PowerColor RX 6900 XT Red Devil ULTIMATE hasn't been released yet. This card features the Navi 21 XTXH GPU, a higher-binned Navi 21 chip capable of hitting higher frequencies. The XTXH version also has a higher power limit value. In OC Mode, the Red Devil Ultimate card offers a 2235MHz Game Clock and a 2425MHz Boost.
The Red Devil Ultimate takes things to a new level with even higher clock speeds. It should be noted that the PowerColor Red Devil series features a dual BIOS switch, each with different frequency settings. By default, the original Red Devil series is clocked at 2015/2250 MHz (game and boost respectively) in silent (standard) mode, whereas the Ultimate model has those values increased to 2135/2335 MHz. That’s almost the same level as the original OC bios of 2105/2340 MHz. In OC mode, the RX 6900 XT Ultimate has the game clock increased even further to 2235 MHz and boost to 2425 MHz. This is actually even higher than Liquid Devil with a maximum boost of 2365 MHz.
It's expected that more cards with the Navi 21 XTXH will be introduced soon. Of course, GPUs are still in a massive shortage, so the odds of getting your hands on a Navi 21 XTXH are pretty low if you don't want to pay extreme prices.
