For the first time since its release, a AMD Radeon RX 6900XT At a price of $899and more specifically it does it in the United States and with a custom model, the Gigabyte Radeon RX 6900 XT Gaming OC. Obviously, this price drop is linked to the imminent launch of the Radeon RX 6950 XTand should force Nvidia GPUs to cut prices drastically, and it is that the curves are coming both in terms of performance and price.

This model, in addition to arriving with an advanced cooling system, arrives with Base/Turbo frequencies of 2050/2285MHzwhich implies a slight increase in frequencies to 35 MHz. It’s not one of the fastest, but for this price you have nothing to complain aboutand even more when it can be overclocked to tighten it a bit more.

It must be remembered that the AMD Radeon RX 6950XT slightly increases the frequencies until 2100/2310MHz (for the reference model), the big improvement being in the use of 16 GB of memory GDDR6 at 18 Gbps (vs 16 Gbps) to increase your effective bandwidth up to 576 GB/s (compared to 512 GB/s). If we put Infinity Cache into the equation, we’re talking about bandwidth up to 1,728.2 GB/s (up from 1,664 GB/s).

Now the big question will be the price of this GPU, but it will be enough for Nvidia to move or be doubly out of the game, as it will be a better option than the GeForce RTX 3090 and GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. It will be May 10.
