ASRock unveils the first Radeon RX 6900 XT by a board partner
So, AMD has allowed its board partners to release Radeon RX 6900 XT cards, after all. There has been no official announcement from AMD on the matter, but the arrival of an RX 6900 XT by ASRock confirms that this is the case.
ASRock's card is nothing more than a reference design, though. The company has not even put any of its branding on its RX 6900 XT, making it plain that this nothing more than the card that AMD has already announced. Unsurprisingly, ASRock has called its card the 'Radeon RX 6900 XT 16G'.
The ASRock card also bears identical specifications to AMD's reference card. So, that means that it has a 2,015 MHz game clock, a 2,250 MHz boost clock and a 300 W total board power.
ASRock has not stated how much its RX 6900 XT will cost. Presumably, it will cost approximately US$999 though, given how much AMD has marketed the price of the RX 6900 XT in comparison to NVIDIA's more expensive GeForce RTX 3090.
It remains unclear whether we will see any custom RX 6900 XT designs, nor which other board partners will release cards. According to Videocardz, AMD's partners should announce any custom cards after December 8, if there are any.
