AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled GPU revealed

Prior to the launch of AMD's RX 6000 series of graphics cards, rumours suggested that AMD was working on its own liquid-cooled version of the flagship RX 6900 XT. As time went on, it looked like the liquid-cooled model had been cancelled, but that changed this month. 

The Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled graphics card is real, with AMD using its own Radeon-branded GPU shroud and a 120mm AIO liquid cooler. Clock speeds have been bumped up for this edition, hitting a ‘game clock' of 2250MHz and a boost clock of 2435MHz – a 235MHz and 185MHz gain over the air-cooled version of the graphics card.

As reported by Videocardz, the graphics card appears to be limited to OEMs for the time being. So expect to see it as a configuration option, or an entirely new PC built around it from custom PC builders like PCSpecialist and Maingear.

Other changes made for the RX 6900 XT LC include a 330W TDP, faster memory with speeds up to 18Gbps and improved memory bandwidth, bumping it up to 576GB/s.

AMD has not confirmed whether or not it will release these graphics cards at retail. Perhaps we'll see a limited run through AMD directly at some point in the future, as we saw with the Radeon RX 6800 XT Midnight Black edition. 

KitGuru Says: Are any of you still hoping to get your hands on an RX 6900 XT? Would you pick up the liquid cooled version if it comes to retail?

We trust Gelsinger meant this in a good and interesting way but the thought of Skynet taking over our lives leaves something to be desired.
