Is it just me noticing this or is there a surge of 6900 XT's coming out from different AIB's now? Wonder what's the cause for that. I thought we are still in short supply for GPUs.

BTW. 21-phase power? nice.

With a small dose of exaggeration, the number of announced RX 6900 variants are more than the units actually sold.

What's the point when the drive set clockspeed limits are still at 3GHz which is easily hit on chilled water...

If you have only few GPUs, put them on your most expensive product :)

Fair enough. If this keeps up, we will have more 6900XT's variants than we have 6700XT, 6800 and 6800 XT variants combined. Exaggerating of course but I'm sure you get my point.

The RX6800XT and to some extent the RTX3080 are the only GPU you can easily get but for a price.

None of those is available in Norway anywhere. No matter what store you look it is unavailable.

In Germany one has best chances with Mindfactory.
They are getting very regularly new batches.
From price point also they are usually 100€ to 200€ cheaper than others here.

For example today they had the new PowerColor Liquid Devil 68000XT, 6900XT Red Devil Ultimate and 6900XT Liquid Devil Ultimate on stock.
The Ultimate cards are sure very expensive :ohwell: but interesting as PowerColor mention that these are high binned chips and have unlocked bios. :rolleyes:
If these statements are true these could have high OC potential.

Unfortunately there are not many that hits 3GHz.
I have been following some member threads for 6900XT Red Devil.
I myself tested 6900XT Red Devil and Sapphire Toxic LC Limited Edition. On both I was not able to hit more than 2675MHz with stabily while applying 384W GPU power and 384A TDC with MorePowerTool. :oops:

But it seems that PowerColor is writing on their website that those Ultimate cards that they announced yesterday has a special bios not limited by Radeon Software limits, so perhaps Asrock will also do the same here. :cool:
Like the Red Devil Ultimate hopefully this Asrock are also special binned cards. :rolleyes:

But even then I think they are not promising that those high clocks are possible as PowerColor writes on their website "If your card allows, the sky is your limit. With an optimized VBIOS for overclocking, there is enough juice to push the GPU with 332 Watts of Power for the LIQUID DEVIL ULTIMATE."

Oh MorePowerTool works on RX 6000 series now? That's pretty awesome!

I was more talking about chilled and LN2 overclocking though, there's no way you could do 3GHz on ambient cooling. Maybe this Asrock card and that Powercolor is actually using that special unlimited BIOS and we'll see some insane overclocking records on these.

That is a lot of power. You could boil 1 Lt of water in 5 minutes.

Exactly my point. Only very few 6900XT reach even 2.7GHz without requiring neuclear power plant. :D

Hopefully, the new high binned 6900XT are different.:rolleyes:

Are you assuming its current temp??? I don't think you're supposed to do that.
