All other board partners decided to show their custom designs, Sapphire however for no is just showing their products based on the reference design.
And well, it's still a good looking product anyway.
From SAPPHIRE, a total of two models of graphics cards equipped with AMD's next-generation GPU Radeon RX 6800 series have appeared. All are equipped with a reference specification triple fan cooler as standard equipment.
Radeon RX 6800 XT. This Big Navi based chip The 6800 XT will get 72 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 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. The TDP listed is at 300 watts for this product. The 2250 GHz boost clock is spectacular. However, the more average game clock is listed at 2015 MHz. New is a 128 MB infinity cache, which we need to explain in our final review, of course. The card is to battle the GeForce RTX 3080 in performance. This graphics card will cost you a sweet sum of 649,- USD with an availability date of November 18th.
"Radeon RX 6800 XT 16G GDDR6" is the high-end model equipped with Radeon RX 6800 XT. The video memory is GDDR6 16GB, the output interface is HDMIx1, DisplayPortx2, USB Type-Cx1, the bus interface is PCI-Express4.0 (x16), and the auxiliary power connector is 8pin x2. The operating clock has not been released at this time, but if it is the same as the reference model, it should be a game clock of 2,015MHz, a boost clock of 2,250MHz, and a memory speed of 16Gbps. The card size is 266.7 mm in length, 119.75 mm in width, 49.75 mm in thickness, and occupies 2.5 slots.
The derivative is the Radeon RX 6800 (Pro); this actually the same card as the 6800 XT, but let's call this somewhat castrated and probably the favorite card for many BIOS tweakers ;) It is more restrained with 60 CUs and thus 3840 Shading processors. It's 1815 MHz game clock and 2105 MHz Boost clock frequency is a notch lower as well. This card will battle with the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 3070. The price is a notch better at 579 USD. The video memory is GDDR6 16GB, the output interface is HDMIx1, DisplayPortx2, USB Type-Cx1, the bus interface is PCI-Express4.0 (x16), and the auxiliary power connector is 8pin x2. RX6800_1024x768a RX6800_1024x768b The operating clock is not disclosed at this time either, but if it is the same as the reference model, the game clock should be 1,815MHz, the boost clock should be 2,105MHz, and the memory speed should be 16Gbps. The card size is 266.7 mm long, 119.75 mm wide, and 39.75 mm thick, and is housed in two slots.
