The specifications of the AMD Navi 21 XT “Big Navi” graphics processor for the Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card were announced by Patrick Schur, who was very reliable about his information. According to spec reports, the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT seems to be a beast graphics card with a crazy watch.

In his tweet, Patrick states that the AMD Navi 21 XT graphics processor, which is supposedly the “Big Navi” graphics processor that all gamers have been waiting for, will be a crazy chip. According to previous reports, the 21 XT GPU will be introduced on the Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card, but there are also reports that there is a faster version of the XTX that would be even faster.

The Navi 21 XT GPU will reportedly be the power of the chip from game clock is about 2.4 GHz what are the highest clock frequencies we will see on the consumer graphics of the desktop class. This also suggests that we can expect even higher gain frequencies, given that gaming and boost clocks are separate, as the gaming clock is the average clock speed that the GPU can support in games, while the boost frequency is the peak frequency. which can get the GPU.
It is also noted that the graphics processor has a TGP (total graphics power) of 255 watts. This does not mean all the power of the board, namely the GPU. For comparison, the GeForce RTX 3080 has a TDP of 320 watts, and the GeForce RTX 3070 has a TDP of 220 watts.
The graphics card is based on the Navi 21 XT graphics processor, which is reportedly a Radeon RX 6900 XT, has 16 GB of GDDR6 memory this is also what we have observed in various previous sources. In terms of comparative measurements, the performance seems to be really close to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, which is very impressive for AMD, and if they can estimate the Big Navi graphics card at about $ 499- $ 599 in the US, then they will have a killer 4K solution.
Rogame has already specified at least four SKUs for the Navi 21 GPU (RDNA 2), but we knew nothing but PCI IDs. There is now much speculation about the exact specifications and configurations of each SKU in terms of number of cores, texture units and ROP, as we now know that the GPU consists of 5,120 stream processors packed into 80 CUs.
Let’s have some fun 😁
Today we know that the Navi21 die has 80CU. We also know that there are 4 variants of Navi21:
W = water
A = Air
How many COPs do you think each option will have?
I think XE will reduce the memory bus to 320 bits

According to Rogame, the Navi 21 GPU currently has the following SKUs:
- Navi 21 XTX (0x731F: D0)
- Navi 21 XT (0x731F: D1)
- Navi 21 XL (0x731F: D3)
- Navi 21 XLE (0x731F: DF)

AMD Radeon RX 6900 series with cooling with three sockets:
As for the designs themselves, the flagship cooling design of the Radeon RX 6000 looks stunning thanks to the red and black design. The card is equipped with a triple axial process fan on the casing and has a large aluminum heatsink that runs under it. On the side of the card there is a Radeon LED logo, and on the side there is a large cutout for fans to give off hot air. This design is very similar to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 Series Founders Edition cooler. The card will have a dual 8-pin power port, and the display ports will include USB Type-C (VirtualLink), 1 HDMI connector and 2 DisplayPort connectors.
The card also has a fancy back panel along with a retaining bracket to hold the cooler in place. The Radeon RX “Big Navi” GPU looks like it will come in a standard 2-slot reference design, which is the same as the flagship NVIDIA RTX 3080, but not as huge as the triple GeForce RTX 3090 slot.
On October 28, AMD will officially unveil its Radeon RX 6000 family of graphics cards. The second half of 2020 will definitely be an interesting time for all hardware enthusiasts and major PC gamers who are looking forward to upgrading their PCs with the best hardware.
