AMD Teases Radeon Pro W6800 and W6600 Graphics Cards with Navi 21 GPU

AMD has recently published a short video teasing the launch of their upcoming Radeon Pro W6800 and W6600 graphics cards. The short video gives us a view of the GPU shroud design and the inclusion of six Mini DisplayPort connectors which are standard features of the Radeon Pro series and lineup with leaks for the W6800. The campaign email sent by AMD also confirms these suspicions as the URL reads "consumer-radeon-pro-w6800-w6600-pre-announce", the two new graphics cards are expected to feature the 7 nm Navi 21 GPU also found in the RX 6800, 6800 XT, and RX 6900 XT.
Something BIG is coming

And the pool of wafers available for manufacturing consumer GPU's is once again reduced.

Why Mini-DP instead of TB3/USB4.0 Type-C ports?

Indeed.... why go backwards instead of forwards for a "NEW" 2021-22 pro-level card, which no doubt will have a pro-level price tag attached to it..

And on that note AMD, please be aware that pros absolutely abhor being forced to use dongles/adapters/multi-connectored cables just to use your products.... 99.9% of the time they will take the easier route & use stuff that can be connected without the restrictive bungling clustercrap non-sense that is mini-DP....

Trust me, I work with over 400 such individuals, and they are a pesky bunch when it comes to technology :D

Unless, of course, you also plan on producing a lineup of pro monitors that have mini-DP ports on them, or such monitors are about to be released by the major mfgr's in conjunction with these cards.... which is doubtful IMHO.... :(

Is it that hard to get Mini-DP to DP cables where you are?

NO, it's not hard at all (hello Amazon), now getting my crankity, set-in-their-ways co-workers to use them, well, that is a royal P.I.T.A. hahahaha :roll:

Let me guess, they are the type who are like "Why do we need to upgrade from DVI?, Its all digital so it doesnt matter"

Doesn't look strong but we'll see the benchmarks

I wonder if it can actually drive 6 monitors?

Benching similar to a 6800xt in geekbench so I can imagine itll just be a 32Gb Equipped version with Specific driver enhancements for things like Solidworks and Maya etc

Consumr's fault.
The crypto bubble would not be possible if people wouldn't buy digits with intrinsic value of zero en mass.
