Sapphire Introduces Radeon RX 6900 XT Toxic Extreme Edition With GPU Factory Overclocked To 2730 MHz
Sapphire has released the Radeon RX 6900 XT Toxic Extreme Edition graphics accelerator. It differs from the previously presented Radeon RX 6900 XT Toxic Limited Edition by an updated modification of the Navi 21 XTXH graphics processor. The latter provides a higher level of overclocking. As a result, a higher power consumption indicator is declared for the new item.
Externally, the Radeon RX 6900 XT Toxic Extreme Edition has not changed. The graphics card is equipped with a hybrid liquid cooling system, which includes a huge 360mm radiator, complete with three 120mm fans with double-row ball bearings connected by two 470mm hoses to the water block mounted GPU.
An aluminum radiator with two heat-conducting tubes is responsible for cooling the batteries and memory chips. A large fan with a hybrid blade design provides fresh airflow to the board components. The cooling system of the video card does not allow the GPU to heat up above 85 degrees Celsius under any load and provides a low noise level of up to 36 dB. The graphics accelerator is equipped with four external video interfaces: one HDMI 2.1 and three DisplayPort 1.4.
The video card received a dual BIOS. When the “normal” BIOS is running, the GPU frequency in Boost mode reaches 2520 MHz. The in-game model corresponds to the value of 2375 MHz. The second BIOS version, which Sapphire calls Toxic Boost, allows the GPU frequency to be increased to 2730 MHz in Boost mode and up to 2500 MHz in gaming mode.
The manufacturer recommends using the proprietary TriXX software application, which allows you to activate the productive mode of the video card by pressing one button.
The Radeon RX 6900 XT Toxic Extreme Edition uses two 8-pin and one 6-pin connector for additional power. The exact level of power consumption of the new product Sapphire does not indicate but reports that it does not exceed 430 watts. The company recommends using an 850W or more PSU with it. In comparison, the Radeon RX 6900 XT Toxic Limited Edition can draw up to 332W.
Deliveries of the Radeon RX 6900 XT Toxic Extreme Edition have already begun. The new product will be available in select online retailers and offline retail outlets of Sapphire products around the world. The manufacturer does not name the price of the video card.
