We are only 10 days away from AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 “Big Navi” to reveal. As a result, the gaming community is waiting with equal breath to see the next generation family of graphics cards and what kind of performance will be brought to the table.
When AMD announced the Ryzen 5000 series of Zen 3 enthusiast processors earlier this month, it gave us a little taste of what to expect about performance. In 4K resolutions, the unnamed Radeon RX 6000 card discussed by Dr. Lisa Su who easily passed the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and is within a stunning distance of $ 699 GeForce RTX 3080.
But AMD appears to have a potential groundbreaking up its sleeve to not only challenge the GeForce RTX 3080, but perhaps even the powerful GeForce RTX 3090. Patrick Schur, who has been reliable in recent releases, suggests that The Navi 21XT (la Radeon RX 6900 XT) features a terrifying 2.4GHz game clock.
Ships 21 XT
~ 2.4 GHz (Game Clock)

To put that in perspective, the Radeon RX 5700 XT (RDNA) has a base clock of 1.6GHz, a game clock of 1.75GHz and a boost frequency of 1.9GHz. At 2.4GHz, that is the maximum clock speed we have ever seen for any stock of consumer graphic cards from the factory. And considering that only the game clock is mentioned, we can look at even higher speeds for maximum clock boost using the new RDNA 2 architecture. The Xbox Series X, which shares the RDNA 2 architecture, has a fixed GPU clock of 1.825GHz.
Based on previous rumors, the Radeon RX 6900 XT has a total of 80 CUs and 5120 stream processors. With a 2.4GHz game clock, we look at around 24.5 TFLOPs compute compared to 9.754 TFLOPs for the Radeon RX 5700 XT. In other words, it will be a performance monster.
The Navi 21 XT, built with an enhanced 7nm process node, is reported to have a TGP (total graphics power) of 225 watts compared to a TDP (total design power) of 320 watts for the GeForce RTX 3080 The GeForce RTX 3090 has a TDP of 350 watts. Finally, Schur claims that the Radeon RX 5900 XT is packed with 16GB of GDDR6 memory compared to 10GB GDDR6X for the GeForce RTX 3080 and 24GB GDDR6X for the GeForce RTX 3090. There is also talk of boosting performance. of Infinity Cache for onboard memory.
We just had to sit down and hold on tight until October 28thika to truly see what AMD has in store, but based on all the releases we’ve seen so far, AMD is shaping up to make some waves with the Radeon RX 6000 family.
