AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT ‘Navi 22 GPU’ Custom-made Designs Supposedly Increase Approximately 2.95 GHz, Up To 211W TGP

AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT custom model BIOS’s have leaked out too, showcasing what frequencies we can expect out of the mainstream RDNA 2 GPUs. The information comes from Igor’s Lab where at least two BIOS’s from custom variants have been detailed through the MorePowerTool.

MD Radeon RX 6700 XT Custom Models Could Potentially Be Better Overclockers Than RX 6800 Series, Up To 2.95 GHz Clocks at 220W TGP

Just yesterday, we got to see the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT’s BIOS which offers a max clock limit of 3.0 GHz, a first for any high-end GPU released to date. The graphics card is set to launch in a few weeks and will be the flagship offering within AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series ‘RDNA 2’ family. After the Big Navi ‘Navi 21’ GPUs are released, AMD will focus its efforts on the Radeon RX 6700 series which features the RDNA 2 based Navi 22 GPU and will come with the Radeon RX 6700 XT & the Radeon RX 6700 flavors.

According to Igor, the BIOS he got access to is for two custom Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards. The first BIOS shows a maximum clock speed of 2854 MHz or 2.854 GHz while the second BIOS is for a much faster variant which offers clock speeds of up to 2950 MHz or 2.95 GHz. These put the Radeon RX 6700 XT partner cards much ahead of the custom RX 6800 XT lineup which maxes out at 2.8 GHz. It will be interesting to see if there are other variants that would feature even faster max clocks since we are looking at a minute 50 MHz difference between the RX 6900 XT and the RX 6700 XT custom models.

Igor also explains that the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT partner cards have variable TGP (Total Graphics Power). The lower clocked variant has a TGP of 186W while the faster-clocked variant has a TGP of 211W. It is highly possible that the first variant with the 2854 MHz max clock limit is a stock variant by AMD and Igor suggests that the TBP (Total Board Power) of that would land between 210-220W. As such, the TBP of the overclocked (2.95 GHz) variant could be even higher at around 250W. This is close to the Radeon RX 6800 (Non-XT) reference model which has a TBP of 250W.

As a reference card, the Radeon RX 6800 has a TGP of 203 watts. The 186 watts of BIOS 1 would therefore be 92% of the TGP, which also suggests an OC BIOS, considering the lower memory (12 instead of 16 GB GDDR6). The BIOS 2 is even significantly above what AMD already gives the RX 6800 reference card! That’s enough after a violent action, but we’ll see what performance comes out of it in the end. Incidentally, both cards have a GPU voltage of 1.2 volts, also more than before with the RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT.

What’s more interesting is that the first variant seems to be the reference design with a fan speed set to 2300 RPM and a more conservative fan target temperatures of 80C. The min PWM value is set to 33% with a Fan throttle limit set at 3200 RPM. The reference Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards are expected to feature a dual-fan design and we have seen a small glimpse of them in a previous leak.

The overclocked model features a higher target temperature of 95C and is expected to rock a more premium cooling design. A 1700 RPM speed suggests that we might be looking at a triple-fan config with a maximum TPM range of 2550.

Finally, we have the Radeon RX 6700 series which includes the Navi 22 XT based Radeon RX 6700 XT and the Navi 22 XL based Radeon RX 6700  graphics cards. The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT with the full Navi 22 XT GPU SKU is expected to feature 40 Compute Units or 2560 stream processors while the Radeon RX 6700 with the Navi 22 XL GPU SKU is expected to feature a cut-down configuration. The graphics card will feature a 12 GB GDDR6 memory buffer along with a 192-bit bus interface. AMD will most likely use 16 Gbps dies which would net a total bandwidth of 384 GB/s for the cards.

AMD Radeon RX 6700 Series With Dual-Slot Cooling Solution:

Moving over to the second variant, the dual-slot card features a design similar to the triple-slot offering but with a slightly compact form factor. This shroud is said to be designed for the AMD Radeon RX 6700 series cards. The card features a dual axial-tech fan design and has the large “R” logo in the middle and on the fans too which represents the Radeon brand.

The card also features the LED-lit Radeon logo on the sides and has a large cut out to vent out the heat from the aluminum heatsink. There are two 8-pin power connectors on the card but we may also see 8+6 or configurations for the more power optimized variants. The card also comes with a dual-slot form factor and should feature a similar I/O as the Big Navi graphics card. It is expected that this cooler should house the Navi 22 GPU which is slightly smaller but still larger compared to AMD’s Navi 10 (RDNA 1) GPU for the Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards.

Why is pneumonia so unsafe? – Eve Gaus and Vanessa Ruiz

Explore how pneumonia attacks the tiny air sacs in your lungs and how your immune system works to fight off the infection.

Every time you breathe, air travels down the trachea, through a series of channels, and then reaches little clusters of air sacs in the lungs. These tiny sacs facilitate a crucial exchange: allowing oxygen from the air we breathe into the bloodstream and clearing out carbon dioxide. Pneumonia wreaks havoc on this exchange system. Eve Gaus and Vanessa Ruiz detail how pneumonia attacks the lungs.

AMD: Do Not Expect Personalized Radeon RX 6800 XT

In a statement given to Hardware Unboxed, AMD has clarified that their Radeon RX 6800 XT & RX 6800 custom partner models will be available at MSRPs in 4 to 8 weeks. This statement comes at a time when not only the partner models but also the reference models are out of stock globally and there’s no word on when we can expect supply to get normal.

MD Claims Radeon RX 6800 XT & RX 6800 Custom AIB Models To Hit MSRPs Within 4-8 Weeks

HardwareUnboxed’s Steve & Tim managed to get some word out of AMD in a private conversation regarding the whole situation surrounding the inflated prices of custom Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 graphics cards. Earlier, Videocardz had also managed to get stock information from various retailers who are facing limited supply and thus limited availability of the said graphics cards within the consumer segment. The statement is as follows:

“We have had a private conversation with AMD. They assured us that in 4 to 8 weeks there will be AIB cards available at MSRP. They said they enabled the AIBs to achieve the 649 dollars [RX 6800 XT] MSRP and they expect that to happen within 8 weeks.”

Steve Walton, Hardware Unboxed (via Videocardz)

The full video can be seen below:

While the stock issue isn’t getting any better any time soon, what’s making it worse is that the few cards that go on sale are listed for inflated prices which are way above the MSRPs. In a chart listed over at Videocardz, you can see several graphics cards along with their respective premium over the reference models. You can expect premium prices of up to +$250 US for the Radeon RX 6800 XT and up to +$120 US for the Radeon RX 6800.

AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT & RX 6800 Custom Model Prices at Newegg (via Videocardz):

Now it’s a given that these custom cards featuring better cooling and PCB designs should retail at a premium price which is true for all GeForce RTX cards too but retailers are specifically asking for higher prices over the already premium price tags that these graphics cards come with. As per the red team (AMD), the custom Radeon RX 6800 XT & RX 6800 graphics cards are expected to return to normal MSRPs within 4-8 weeks which is early 2021.

The main reason is that retailers are trying to cash-in the entire situation since this is a premium segment with users willing to pay the extra bucks and retailers now that these cards are very limited in supply so they get to raise the prices as much as they want knowing that consumers are going to pay the full amount, regardless. It was recently reported that AIBs have bare minimum margins on their custom designs and retailers inflating the prices makes it even worse for them.

NVIDIA is also facing similar issues with its AIB partners where several models are listed for inflated prices due to the unavailability of stock and retailers taking advantage of the whole scenario. With that said, if reports are true, then NVIDIA is to be partially blamed for the whole mess with their own lineup since they have allegedly sold $175 million worth of GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards directly to the crypto mining segment.

Several shops and retailers had boycotted the launch sales since they couldn’t get their supply on time & are now suggesting supply to resume to normal by 2021. Retailer ProShop’s statistics show that only 125 RX 6800 series graphics cards have been sold to date and all of them are reference models. The retailer has made a huge order of several 100 custom variants from each AIB but only a handful of cards are being supplied to them at the moment.

Retailers held off from taking pre-orders to avoid unnecessary traffic like the witnessed with the GeForce RTX 30 series launch which crashed almost every big retailer within minutes. During the launch day, Newegg and Amazon had reported limited units of the Radeon RX 6800 XT & 6800 being available through them.

AMD did make several promises of this not being as much of a botched launch as NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 series but it turned out to be even worse. We are not saying that NVIDIA’s situation here is any better but NVIDIA’s cards were shipped and sold to several customers while AMD’s cards were prioritized to Red Team Plus members who had links to purchase the cards prior to regular buyers.

All in all, it really sucks to be a gamer right now as both NVIDIA and AMD underestimated the huge demand for next-generation GPUs. Gamers who have ordered have been shown shipment dates as far as February 2021.

NVIDIA and AMD could’ve taken their time to establish a bigger stock but they have been running behind ‘Unprecedented Demand’ as a means to tackle the backlash of one of the worst graphics card launches in terms of availability. With that said, we hope that 2021 can start off better for gamers all around the globe who just want a new graphics card to enjoy the latest gaming titles.

Lian Li has Launched the ST120 fan featuring a maximum fan speed of 1,900 RPM and a maximum noise level of 32 dBA. This fan has RGB lighting throughout the fan blades. The ST120 fan comes in either a white color scheme or a black color scheme and is currently available for pre-order for $39.99.

Lian Li has launched the ST120 fan offering an industrial-grade motor and RGB lighting through the fan blades

The ST120 fan comes in two distinct colors, either Black or White, featuring RGB lighting throughout the fan blades, ensuring fantastic lights illuminate the other PC components. These two distinct colors allow this fan to easily match a standard black PC case or a snow-white PC build, ensuring that the theme stays intact even for the case fans.

The ST120 fan offers an RPM range of 800 RPM with a maximum speed of 1,900 RPM allowing for fantastic airflow. This maximum speed only creates 32 dBA of noise, allowing for an incredibly cool PC case while not being noisy enough to distract any gamer. The ST120 fan can provide a maximum airflow of 69.17 CFM and a maximum static pressure of 2.6 mm H2O. This allows for a significant amount of air to be efficiently moved through the case using this fan.

This fan utilizes an industrial-grade motor to ensure the high reliability that Lian Li products are known for and keep the fan as silent as possible. This fan also uses a Fluid Dynamic Bearing, which reduces the moving motor hubs’ internal friction and noise.

The ST120 fan includes a fan hub offering support for up to six fans and can be connected through the motherboard’s fan header and using a SATA connection to power the hub. This included hub is one way that PC builders can control the RGB lighting; this fan can also be controlled through the included controller.

The ST120 fan comes in a three-pack in either a white or black color and currently available for pre-order. The 3-pack of these fans features a price tag of $39.99. More information is available on Lian Li’s website for the ST120 fans.

EVGA Introduces the BP Bronze Collection Power Supplies

EVGA announces the BP Bronze Series of Power supplies offering four different models with a ranging power output from 460 watts up to 710 watts. These power supplies feature 80 PLUS Bronze certified, offering an 85% efficiency or higher during typical loads. These power supplies are currently available through EVGA’s websites with a price ranging from $84.99 to $54.99.

The BP Bronze Series of power supplies offers four different models with a power output ranging from 460 watts to 710 watts.

These power supplies all have similar features offering a Hard-Lined design, 80 PLUS bronze efficiency, and utilize the Hydraulic bearing fan. The hard-lined design makes these power supplies non-modular, which can increase the cord clutter inside of your PC. This design also ensures that the case’s installation is easy and ready to start right out of the box.

The BP Bronze Series power supplies feature 80 PLUS efficiency, ensuring your power supply, under typical load, has an 85% efficiency or higher. This certification ensures that the power supply isn’t turning a large amount of electricity into heat and instead uses that electricity.

The BP Bronze Series, power supplies design, features a fairly standard design, having no RGB lighting but keeps the black color the same throughout the chassis. These power supplies’ chassis is slightly shorter than the standard ATX form factor, as these power supplies feature a length of just 120 mm.

All of these power supplies utilize the Hydraulic Bearing Fan, which reduces the noise created by the power supply. This fan also offers a longer-lasting life than a sleeve bearing fan; having a power supply fan that stays quiet and lasts for a longer time is incredibly important.

The BP power supply series are currently available on EVGA’s website, with the EVGA 710 BP being the most expensive, having a price tag of $84.99. The EVGA 610 BP features a price tag of $74.99, while the EVGA 510 BP has a price of $64.99 while the least expensive is the EVGA 460 BP having a price of $54.99. Each of these power supplies is limited to two per household on EVGA’s website.

These power supplies feature a three-year warranty to ensure any buyers that these power supplies can operate for a long time without breaking down.
