Lenovo Develops Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT LEGION Edition Graphics Cards

Lenovo and AMD seem to be developing an exclusive partnership with client/workstation products. Following exclusivity for Lenovo to sell workstations powered by the Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors, the two appear to be collaborating on graphics cards. Pictures surfaced on Chinese social media of the new Lenovo Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT LEGION Edition graphics cards. At this point it's unclear whether Lenovo designed these cards, or if the designers of AMD's reference MBA (made by AMD) graphics cards lent a hand.

Looking at the red-illuminated "R" cornerstone design element, the possibility of the card being designed and made by the same OEM as reference-design MBA cards, cannot be ruled out. Use of the "R" cornerstone dates back to the Radeon RX Vega series. The typeface of the "R" has since been updated to match with the latest Radeon logo. Elsewhere across the card, we see a large "Radeon RX 6x00 XT" logo along the top of the card, which is RGB illuminated. The butch triple-slot card appears to be slightly larger than the RX 6800 XT / RX 6900 XT reference-design, pulling power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Along the metal back-plate we see a large, illuminated logo of LEGION, Lenovo's gaming PC marquee. Below are screengrabs from the animation, watch the animated GIF in the source link below. At this point we don't know if this card is China-exclusive, and exactly how it's marketed, whether it's sold standalone like any AIB retail card, or whether it's pre-installed on LEGION PCs, such as the 2021 LEGION 7000P desktops.

dont wanna rain on your parade, but you will get the same or less fps with a 3600 if your running a 1060. 4690k to 9700kf basically was within margin of error

I'm w/ @bug , this has become a joke. All these companies announcing their flagships...that are in such low quantity they essentially don't exist.

Cool, magic GPUs, the fans spin and they light up like they are possessed even when not plugged in.

This card looks serious, I like it.

ZERO slanted angles, how is that even possible?

Having another vendor is actually a good thing for the GPU market.

Quite a funky design seeing as Lenovo is usually more "business'y" looking. When the market returns back to normal sometime in 2077 it might be an option.

While I do kinda like it, I don't like how they have closed the sides where the exhaust air is coming out.

Yeah, and in return, Lenovo even promised parity on laptop configuration offerings.
It still doesn't like like that is working though, which is an embarrassment, given how good 5000 series Ryzen is:

.that are in such low quantity
That's a made up statement that contradicts evidence.

Indeed, way to nice to be in a case. Have to make a stand for it and put it on the desk, you know, like something, rare, and unique and unavailable, to show off to everyone ;)

I wonder what malware/spyware Lenovo installed on these. They have a history of doing that kind of thing.

Scalpers: (Now on the lookout for the RTX 3090, the 6900XT, and the Spudhasher 5000 GT)
