Over recent days we appear to have gained some useful insight into the carefully guarded secrets of Big Navi. Over the weekend developer Patrick Schur provided some tasty rumour material about the Navi 21 XT's configuration - its memory, TGP and (2.4GHz) Game Clock. This data was analysed and combined with Igor's Lab and sources to give a clearer directly comparable expected Navi 21 XT full graphics card power consumption (320W) and you may have read about that in our article yesterday.

Today it looks like both the above sources have put their heads together for some further worthwhile insights about Radeon RX 6000 Series things to come. Igor's Lab published a report today about Igor's findings from his deep scrutiny of the AMD AIB factory overclocked partner card BIOS that fell into possession of Patrick Schor.

Poking around the BIOS (Using the MorePowerTool) and checking over Wattman Overdrive Limits, Igor mentions a maximum OC value of 2,800MHz. This is just a theoretical maximum clock speed available to extreme OC experts that set all the sliders to the right. Something approaching this value of OC may be possible with LN2 or perhaps liquid Helium cooling.

The 'very special board partner card', which is the source of Patrick Schur's BIOS, sets the GPU boost clock to 2,577MHz. This could correspond to a quoted Game Clock of 2.3 to 2.4GHz suggests Igor, but may be slightly lower.

Another insight from the BIOS is that AMD has set the fan control hotspot at 95°C. Igor comments that this is "not very nice," and indeed some would prefer it to be lower.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series rumour summary

Today Videocardz pulled together all the previously reported rumours and the latest info from its AIB sources to produce a useful summary table of expectations for the AMD Radeon RX 6000 Series. It admits these are pretty much in line with the Coreteks assertions, also published today.

The Radeon RX 6900XT, 6800XT, and 6800 will all be unveiled at AMD's special event a week from now, on 28th October. These will be reference cards and Videocardz says that AIB custom cards will be released next month and are subject to a different embargo.

All about power draw for me. Need to see AMD's <250W part and how it performs against the 3070. 320W is a joke.
Seems like both teams are pushing their cards hard this generation. Fingers crossed AMD's isn't a hot mess. Got to say despite the Nvidia 3000 series power draw they've managed to keep it cool and quiet.

They don't sell FE anymore and all the other cards are cool and quiet triple-fan triple-slot monstrosities. I have an SFF case so I don't play in that ballpark and I assume neither would most mainstream users. You could fit a 2080Ti in some pretty tiny cases last gen, it's a shame perf/watt hasn't really progressed much.

The 250 W thats just the GPU i think, i would be surprised if the new cards are under 300 W
That said today you can get a 12 / 24 core CPU like my threadripper, but one that idle far lower then the 180 W ( total system draw ) my system do now.

In regard to SFF case, well then you have put some ( at least ) limitations on yourself, my current project is in a case that on its own without much up scaling could be a minecraft map :mrgreen:
Disponibility will be the major thing.
AMD will have to price it relative to what Nvidia has on offer.
So no problem there really. You will have a choice. Just wait and read at least several reviews.

So many people are eager to buy a new graphic card (be it AMD or Nvidia), they will sell out no matter what.
