Newegg Insider Reportedly Reveals Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800XT, RX 6700 XT Specifications

It's uncertain whether it's pure speculation or insider information, but Newegg seems to have all the juicy details on AMD's Radeon RX 6000-series graphics cards. In the latest installment of Newegg Insider (via VideoCardz), the U.S. retailer reportedly exposes the specifications for the Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT and RX 6700 XT.

Newegg Insider is a platform that offers consumers buying guides, videos and product overviews. Some of the specifications in the article appear to fall in line with a previous discovery. Since we can't be certain if the author had access to confidential information or not, we recommend you take the specifications with a bit of salt.

A couple of things make us question the accuracy of Newegg Insider's alleged specifications. The publication seems to think that all three RDNA 2 graphics cards will come with a 1,500 MHz base clock, which seems doubtful. This is probably conjecture since we probably won't know the exact clock speeds until AMD announces the Radeon RX 6000 series on October 28.

Secondly, the Radeon RX 6700 XT presumably features 6GB of GDDR6 memory. If the Stream Processor (SP) count is legit, the Radeon RX 6700 XT should replace the Radeon RX 5700 XT, which has 8GB of GDDR6 memory. We wouldn't say it's impossible, but it's unlikely that the successor would arrive with less memory than the model it replaces.

The confined memory interfaces show up as red flags on the map, too. However, rumors have neem brewing that AMD might have revamped the cache design on RDNA 2 to alleviate the lower memory bandwidth.

*Specifications are unconfirmed.

According to the Newegg Insider, the Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT and RX 6700 XT are equipped with the same 1,500 MHz base clock and 16 Gbps GDDR6 memory chips. 

The Radeon RX 6900 XT supposedly checks in with 5,120 SPs and 16GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit memory bus. The end result is a memory bandwidth of 512 GBps.

Apparently, the Radeon RX 6800 XT lands with 3,840 SPs and leverage 12GB of GDDR6 memory. It's plausible that the Radeon RX 6800 XT could have a 192-bit memory interface, putting the maximum theoretical bandwidth at 384 GBps.

As for the Radeon RX 6700 XT, the graphics card ostensibly has 2,560 SPs and 6GB of GDDR6 memory. The publication claims that the Radeon RX 6800 XT and the Radeon RX 6700 XT offer the same level of memory bandwidth, albeit the latter having 6GB instead of 12GB.

The final bit of information from the article shows that the Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT and RX 6700 XT might sport TDP (thermal design power) ratings of 300W, 200W, and 150W, respectively.

Admittedly, there are still a lot of questions surrounding the Radeon RX 6000 series. Lucky for us, AMD will have all the answers for us in a month.

    Unless these chips have an unheard of amount of cache, it's hard to see sense in these bandwidth figures.

    I feel as if this leak is a pretty big outlier compared to the other ones so far.

    Unless the performance-per-CU significantly improved, it seems a bit unlikely that the successor to the 5700 XT would have the same core count as its predecessor, especially with Nvidia being more competitive with pricing this generation. The RTX 3070 will supposedly be somewhere around 50% faster than a 5700XT for as little as $500, and I suspect there will be a 3060-class card for around $400 or less with perhaps around 25% more performance than a 5700 XT. More likely, a 40 CU card would be priced closer to the 5600 XT's price slot at under $300, and at that level, 6GB of VRAM might make a little more sense. That would leave the 60 CU card to be more of a successor to the 5700 XT, with performance close to that of the 3070, while the 80 CU card might compete more with the 3080. Again, that's assuming performance-per-CU hasn't changed dramatically.

    If AMD can at least deliver good results at a good price point............remember, Steam hardware survey listed a GTX 1060 as the most popular GPU.....then it will be fine. That coupled with all the gaming console business will keep them going. Also, they shouldn't have the availability issues at launch that Nvidia has encountered due mostly to such high and never before seen demand. https://store.steampowered.com/hwsurvey/Steam-Hardware-Software-Survey-Welcome-to-Steam

    I think a big factor in the lack of RX 480 and RX470 cards in the steam survey is there popularity for crypto-mining. At MSRP they are a better value than the GTX 1060... at MSRP. Not for nearly $1000.

    Thank you for this report which is almost certainly false.

    The previous leak suggested that the 200 watts card has 22 Tflops speed. This means that the RX 6900 XT would be at least 30 to 33 Tflops at 300 watts ... Things are looking more and more interesting here , Nvidia might be in trouble !

    I am expecting AMD to do what they have been doing a lot in recent years on the graphic side, make a capable product that has great value but doesn't quite challenge Nvidia at the top tier. I hope I am wrong.

    6700xt, 10% over 5700xt, only 150W? R.I.P nvidia

    does it really matter? their drives will suck and your system will crash 10 times a day. I have a new system with 3700x and 5700xt and it crashes all the time with gpu driver issues. Stick a different GPU in and it runs fine. I am going for a 3080 for the fist time in 10 years.

    I have had a 6950 HD (good card), R9 390X (good card, but hot) and now a reddevil 5700 xt. It is fast but I do a clean 9install every new driver and it still crashes up to 10 times a day.

    In my opinion, the memory interface for the RX 6800 XT just don't make sense. A graphic card targeting 1440p and 4K with a lower mid range memory interface is going to be problem. I will take this with a pinch of salt and wait for official specs.
