The Radeon Instinct MI6 is a professional graphics card by AMD, launched in December 2016. Built on the 14 nm process, and based on the Ellesmere graphics processor, in its Ellesmere XT variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The Ellesmere graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 232 mm² and 5,700 million transistors. It features 2304 shading units, 144 texture mapping units and 32 ROPs. AMD has placed 8,192 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1120 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1233 MHz, memory is running at 1750 MHz.
Being a single-slot card, the AMD Radeon Instinct MI6 draws power from 1x 6-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 150 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. Radeon Instinct MI6 is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 241 mm in length, and features a single-slot cooling solution.
