AMD's Liquid Cooled RX 6900 XT is SI-only - Radeon Confirms

It's official, AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Cooled (LC) GPU is exclusive to System Integrators (SIs), which means that AMD fans won't be able to purchase this Limited Edition graphics card outside of PCs from selected SIs.  

AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT LC is AMD's most powerful Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card, using liquid cooling, faster GDDR6 VRAM and a boosted power limit to deliver a significant performance uplift over AMD's reference RX 6900 XT models. 

Right now, System Integrators like NZXT, PC Specialist, and Maingear are offering PC gamers custom systems that contain AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT LC. PC builders will not be able to purchase this graphics card as a standalone product, and these graphics cards are reportedly in short supply. 

Dospara, a Japanese system builder, has also issued a press release that claims that the retailer only has 100 units that feature AMD's reference liquid cooler. If this level of stock is similar to other SIs, it looks like AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT LC will be available in incredibly small qualities. 

In a statement to Andreas Schilling, AMD said the following; 



    This AMD-designed liquid cooled Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card is a limited-edition product exclusively for select system integrators.
 
 
Below are the specifications of AMD's RX 6900 XT LC graphics card. The limited-edition graphics card features a "game clock" of 2250 MHz and 18Gbps GDDR6 memory. These changes indicate that AMD's RX 6900 XT LC features a game clock speed boost of around 11.7% and a VRAM bandwidth increase of 11.25% compared to the company's reference air-cooled RX 6900 XT.

I can see the point if the total system price is fair; but unless this comes into the hands of independent reviewers we won't be able to judge; and if the systems come in at a fair price they will STILL be bought in a large number of instances by folk who will break them up and sell the compnents individually. The Radeaon RX 6900 XT LC at a grossly inflated price of course.


We live in crap times; and not just for gamers. The 21st century has been hijacked by loonies.Quote
