According to reports from VideoCardz, Gigabyte is readying an Aorus-branded AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card geared up with a water block. The Aorus Xtreme WaterForce WB Radeon RX 6900 XT will feature more than one addressable RGB LED and will be aimed at those who already have a customized liquid cooling system (LCS). Right now important points are sparse, so take them with a pinch of salt.
Gigabyte’s Aorus Xtreme WaterForce WB Radeon RX 6900 XT will raise AMD’s top-of-the-range Navi 21 GPU with 5,120 stream processors, although it is unknown whether or not the GPU will come in its XTX variant (with certain limitations for clocks and voltages) or in the unlocked XTXH version with no limits. The exact specs of the board are unknown at this point, reports VideoCardz.
Just like Gigabyte’s Aorus Radeon RX 6900 XT Master 16G, the upcoming Aorus Xtreme WaterForce WB Radeon RX 6900 XT features three eight-pin auxiliary PCIe power connectors that can supply up to 450W of power to the card however proper now there are no details on actual power requirements. Since we have no idea which GPU version the card uses, it is tough to make guesses about actual clocks that can be expected.
Gigabyte’s Aorus WaterForce water block has a transparent acrylic cowl and seems to be barely extra than one slot thick. Therefore, the card nonetheless comes with a dual-slot bracket. Traditionally for customized water blocks, this one has multiple built-in addressable RGB LEDs. As for outputs, they are pretty standard: two DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI 2.1.
When it comes to launching new picture cards, Gigabyte’s usual strategy is to launch reference boards first, then follow up with a customized design, and then proceed with models featuring a liquid cooling solution. This used to be the case with Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3090, however as a long way as AMD’s Radeon RX 6800/6900-series is concerned, Gigabyte simply released three customized cards with the Aorus company (RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6900 XT) and in no way provided anything with liquid cooling. But at least it now appears that Gigabyte’s liquid-cooled RDNA2 product is on the way. All we want to know now are when to anticipate it, and how much it will cost.
