Alleged Radeon RX 6000 GPU sample spotted - Is this AMD's Big Navi?

Images of a graphics card engineering sample have appeared over on bilibili (via Videocardz), an alleged Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card from AMD's Navi 2X GPU family.
 
Based on what we can see of this graphics card, it appears to be using 16Gb (2GB) Samsung GDDR6 memory chips. Another label on the graphics cards says "Typical XT A0 ASIC", suggesting that this is a Radeon graphics card.

The leaker of this image has stated that this graphics card uses eight GDDR6 memory chips, which gives this graphics card 16GB of GDDR6 memory over a 256-bit memory bus. This implies that this graphics card is not AMD's flagship "Big Navi" graphics chip; unless AMD has found a way to significantly increase its effective memory bandwidth without using a wider memory bus. 

This graphics card is an engineering sample and will look nothing like AMD's final retail products. Sadly, there is little information to be gleaned from these images, as they give us little to no information about AMD's future products and aspects of the graphics card like PCIe power connections are often over-built on engineering samples for testing purposes.   
 
AMD is due to launch its RDNA 2 architecture on October 28th, with AMD promising "a breakthrough gaming architecture". Gamers should expect a huge performance leap over today's RDNA-based products, though it remains to be seen how AMD's new products will compare with Nvidia's new Ampere offerings.

If Nvidia need a 320bit interface for 10GB of GDDR6X and they have some of the best compression tech in the industry, Then this 256bit sounds a little off.Quote

would be funny if its a hackmod on a 5700xt

although it looks new looking at the stickers.Quote

I think it may be. However, it's a test board like the Vega one we saw.

AMD have form for making really dodgy looking test boards lolQuote

Its a brand new pcb without a speck of dust, so I believe its genuine. We don't have the source pic either. Maybe its possible to zoom on the source and view the sticker details.

The cooler is probably a test solution but we will know in a short time.Quote
