Various European e-tailers have started listing the Sapphire RX 6900 XT Toxic Extreme, a new watercooled model that uses the Navi 21 XTXH GPU. This is a higher-binned version of the Navi 21 GPU, capable of hitting higher frequencies.

The card features an all-in-one watercooling solution with a 360mm radiator. Thanks to the Navi 21 XTXH GPU and the beefy cooling, the RX 6900 XT TOXIC Extreme has a Boost of 2730MHz -- that's 480MHz higher than the reference card.
Such specifications come at a cost of non-standard power requirements. This model is equipped with a dual 8-pin and a single 6-pin power connector (8+8+6). It is required to provide nearly 430W of power to the GPU, which is normally rated at 300W (AMD reference specs).

It costs a ton

The bad news is that pricing is very high, not in the least because of the current GPU shortages. VideoCardz checked various sites and found that the cheapest pre-order price is 2599.90EUR. Prices vary a lot though, the most expensive listing charges 4160EUR for the card! That's roughly quadruple the official price of the reference card from AMD.
