XFX partners with EK to launch 3GHz RX 6900 XT

XFX and EK have collaborated to create the FX Speedster ZERO RX 6900XT RGB EKWB Waterblock Limited Edition, a new graphics card with possibly the longest name we have ever seen. XFX maintains this GPU can reach 3GHz when overclocked though, which makes us think that this is likely another card based on the Navi 21 XTXH GPU.

Ready to be added to a custom liquid loop, the XFX Speedster Zero Radeon RX 6900XT features a pre-installed EK water block with ARGB and an LED logo plate. The base is CNC-machined and made of nickel-plated copper and the top CNC-machined of glass-like cast acrylic.

Featuring a two-slot design, the card has a black backplate to improve passive cooling and enhance its aesthetics. Additionally, there are EPDM O-rings to prevent leaks and pre-installed brass standoffs to ease the installation process. TGP is not specified, but there are 3x PCIe 8-pin power connectors on the side of the card, so we'd suggest at least 375W is realistic, if not more. For a reference point, the Sapphire Toxic RX 6900 XT – with a 360mm AIO cooler – pulled over 440W when overclocked.

The card comes with a 14+2 phase VRM design and Dual-BIOS, increasing overclock potential and bringing an extra safety layer if a BIOS gets corrupted. Out of the box, the GPU boost clocked is rated at 2525MHz, but XFX promises it can surpass 3000MHz if overclocked.

KitGuru says: Considering what we've already seen from other Navi 21 XTXH GPU-based cards, we're not sure if a 3GHz clock speed is necessarily realistic – but we hope we are wrong!
