EEC listing suggests that AMD has a Radeon RX 6900 in development

ASUS has registered multiple Radeon RX 6900 SKUs with the EEC in Russia, raising the possibility of AMD announcing a cheaper alternative to the RX 6900 XT. The RX 6900 has been listed seven times, all with 16 GB of VRAM. If it is an error, then the listing should mean that ASUS is planning to release plenty of RX 6900 XT SKUs, at the very least.

ASUS may have inadvertently confirmed the existence of the Radeon RX 6900. So far, AMD has unveiled three RDNA 2 cards, of which the RX 6900 XT is the premier example. The RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT round off AMD's RDNA 2 offerings, but it the company is expected to announce RX 6700 series cards at some stage.

ASUS apparently has seven RX 6900 cards planned though, according to a new registration with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). The listing, a screenshot of which we have posted below, includes four ROG Strix cards, two TUF SKUs and a regular RX 6900 model. All SKUs have 16 GB of VRAM, based on their codenames. The seven names are as follows:

  • ROG-STRIX-LC-RX6900-16G-GAMING
  • ROG-STRIX-LC-RX6900-16G-GAMING
  • ROG-STRIX-RX6900-16G-GAMING
  • ROG-STRIX-RX6900-16G-GAMING
  • TUF-RX6900-16G-GAMING
  • TUF-RX6900-O16G-GAMING
  • RX6900-16G

ASUS may have registered these cards under the wrong model numbers, of course. If that is the case, then the company will probably release seven RX 6900 XT custom cards early next year. On the other hand, the company may have offered a clue that AMD plans to announce the RX 6900 at some stage. Either way, the arrival of more custom cards should provide consumers with additional choice, whenever retailers actually get stock of them, that is.
