Sapphire NITRO+ RX 6900 XT, una Special Edition con Boost Clock fino a 2365 MHz
In home Sapphire, after Toxic Extreme, they announced the NITRO+ RX 6900 XT Special Edition. The video card is in all respects like the traditional NITRO + from a cooling point of view, differing from that model only for the fans with ARGB LEDs and above all factory frequencies.
The Game Clock can go up to 2135 MHz instead of 2050 MHz, while the Boost Clock was pushed up to 2365 MHz instead of 2285 MHz. We remind you that the reference frequencies indicated by AMD are “up to 2015 MHz” for the Game Clock and “up to 2250 MHz” in terms of Boost Clock. Probably, but we are not sure, this solution adopts a Navi 21 XTXH GPU, which is a highly selected graphics processor to work at higher clocks. The 16 GB of memory GDDR6 they remain instead a 16 Gbps.
Sapphire’s Special Edition occupies three slots on the motherboard and has dimensions of 320 x 134.85 x 58.4 mm by virtue of the Tri-X cooling with three 10cm diameter fans and double ball bearing. There is also a backplate also equipped with ARGB LEDs. At the rear of this model we find an HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4, but it seems there will also be a version with a USB C.
The card does not miss a dual BIOS (Performance and Silent, with switching between the two also manageable via software), three power connectors (2 x 8 pin, 1 x 6 pin) and a 3 pin connector to allow synchronization of the board lighting with the motherboard . Sapphire has not communicated the price, but as now known to all fans it is an insignificant detail at the moment given the lack of GPUs and skyrocketing prices, well beyond any stated price list.
