Radeon RX 6900 XT | RX 6800 XT | RX 6800 : Key Features

Thanks to its new RDNA 2 architecture, the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800 graphics cards offers these key features :

AMD Infinity Cache

This is a large 128 MB last-level data cache built into the die to dramatically reduce memory latency and power consumption.

AMD Smart Access Memory

This is an exclusive feature that is enabled when a Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card is paired with the Ryzen 5000 series processor and an X570 motherboard.

The Ryzen 5000 series processor is given greater access to its GDDR6 graphics memory, providing up to 13% better performance when combined with the new Rage Mode one-click overclocking setting.

DirectX 12 Ultimate Support

They will support the next-generation games with greater realism through DirectX Raytracing (DXR) and Variable Rate Shading.

New Ray Accelerator

Every RDNA 2 computer unit has a new fixed-function Ray Accelerator engine to deliver real-time lighting, shadow and reflection realism through DirectX Raytracing (DXR).

It can be paired with AMD FidelityFX to enable hybrid rendering, offering a combination of rasterised and ray-traced effects for a blend of better image quality and higher performance.

Variable Rate Shading (VRS)

Variable Rate Shading dynamically reduces the shading rate for areas of the frame that do not require a high level of visual quality, improving performance at little to no perceptible loss in image quality.

Microsoft DirectStorage Support

They will support the future DirectStorage API for faster load times, and high-quality textures.

 

Radeon RX 6900 XT | RX 6800 XT | RX 6800 : Design

AMD used the same design for all three models, with the same triple-fan cooler, and dual 8-pin PCIe power connector.

The only difference really is the thicker heatsink for the RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT, which results in a bulkier 2.5 card profile.
