XFX Radeon RX 6800 XT Speedster MERC 319

The new XFX Radeon RX 6800 XT Speedster 319 is a great graphics card that its unique name aside, has some killer performance. It’s everything AMD’s own Radeon RX 6800 XT reference graphics card, and more — it’s bigger, it’s much cooler, much quieter, and packs a very nice additional punch — and as a bonus, some great OC abilities, too.

XFX is using a custom PCB here, with a huge 2.7-slot card that rocks a triple-fan cooler and (surprisingly) only 2 x 8-pin PCIe power connectors. XFX is throwing on another $50 premium for the Radeon RX 6800 XT Speedster MERC 319 at $749 (versus $699 for the reference RX 6800 XT).

AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT: Reviews Are In

The new Radeon RX 6900 XT is here with the same 26.8 billion transistors, but it packs 80 Compute Units (CUs) and 80 Ray Accelerators (versus the 72 and 60 for each inside of the Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Radeon RX 6800, respectively). This results in 5120 stream processors (up from the 4608 inside of the RX 6800 XT and 3840 inside of the RX 6800).

GPU clocks aren’t any higher for the reference Radeon RX 6900 XT as they are to the Radeon RX 6800 XT reference, with Game GPU clocks of up to 2015MHz and boost GPU clocks of up to 2250MHz. The additional Compute Units provide more performance across the board, leading to 23.04 TFLOPs of single precision performance, versus 20.74 TFLOPs on the Radeon RX 6800 XT.

ASUS submitted a Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card for review; this one is a bit more special though as it has been fitted with hybrid cooling. Yes, you’ll see Liquid cooling applied on the primary GPU area, and then a fan can cool down some of the additional components. The result is a graphics card that looks stunning and is very silent, as well. The card was fabbed around a custom PCB, premium components, a hybrid cooler, and increased clock frequencies, as well as an increased power limiter.

XFX Radeon RX 6800 XT Speedster MERC 319

XFX is back to game hard; this round, we check out their all-new RX 6800 XT MERC SpeedSter 319, a card that was fabbed around a custom PCB, premium components, a custom 3-fan cooler, and seriously ramped up clock frequencies as well as an increased power limiter. Oh and MERC is short for Mercury, by the way. It has been a long wait for AMD and, sure, us. When the first NAVI based graphics cards were launched, they became well respected. The 5600 and 5700 series does offer some good performance.

Sapphire Radeon RX 6800 XT NITRO+

The 6800 XT which we review in this article receives 72 activated CUs multiplied by 64 shader units is 4608 shading processors. This card gets 16 GB of GDDR6 memory based on a 256-bit memory bus, not to confuse with the new GDDR6X memory NVIDIA is using for RTX 3080 and 3090. So that means 512 GB/s of memory bandwidth and, in fact, would be equal to the bandwidth of the GeForce RTX 3070.

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT + RX 6800 Overclocking

Overall there is some great performance gains to be had from overclocking both the Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800 gaphics cards. I’m interested to see how custom solutions from the likes of MSI, SAPPHIRE, XFX, PowerColor, and others do — many of these have custom Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800 cards on their way to me now.

AMD Radeon RX 6800: Big Punches for $579

We have some impressive power numbers, impressive thermal numbers, 16GB of RAM, HDMI 2.1 connectivity, Infinity Cache, kick ass performance at all resolutions — including 3440 x 1440, where I think the Radeon RX 6800 has an awesome and snuggly home. There are heaps of great 34-inch 21:9 ultrawide gaming monitors at 3440 x 1440 and 120/144/165Hz that would gel beautifully with the Radeon RX 6800.

Alleged AMD Radeon RX 6000 “Big Navi GPU” Pictured

Compared to the previously leaked engineering board, the latest Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card PCB gives us a better view of what to expect from AMD’s Big Navi “Navi 21” class products. It will still be based on an engineering board so the final design could be vastly different than what we are looking at here.

AMD Radeon RX 6000 Details Leak

AMD’s Big Navi will feature 80 Compute Units (5120 Stream Processors). This card will be (for now) AMD exclusive. The Radeon RX 6900XT will be the AMD flagship series, which according to our sources will be in limited quantity. The card would allegedly feature 16GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit bus. The graphics card would feature a 2040 MHz game clock and a 2330 MHz boost clock.
