AMD's RX 6900 XT will reportedly be "AMD Exclusive" at launch

According to sources over at Igor's Lab, AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT, the company's RDNA 2 gaming flagship, will "exclusive" to AMD at launch and will be available in "limited quantities". 

This card will be (for now) AMD exclusive. The Radeon RX 6900XT will be the AMD flagship series, which according to our sources will be in limited quantity
According to recent Radeon RX 6000 series specifications leaks, AMD's RX 6900 XT will feature 80 compute units, 16GB of GDDR6 memory and a boost clock speed of 2330 MHz. These specifications give AMD;'s RX 6900 XT two times as many compute units as AMD RX 5700 XT, higher core clock speeds, 2x as much VRAM and all of the new architectural features of RDNA 2. AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series promises to deliver gamers a huge generational leap in performance over today's RDNA offerings.

Igor's Lab has also reported that a "very special board partner" plans to release a Navi 21 graphics card with a boost clock speed of 2577 MHz, offering gamers a significant clock speed bump over AMD's recently leaked reference RX 6000 clock speeds. This suggests that RDNA should feature a lot of overclocking headroom. 

Below are some recently leaked specifications for AMD's RX 6000 series graphics cards. AMD's Radeon RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 are expected to be revealed on October 28th.

My guess will be Sapphire or XFX, leaning more towards it being Sapphire.

That being said, I pray to that this is going to be a paper launch and AMD have actual bot and scalper deterrents in place for it.Quote

I can't help but think that the key technology that may hold AMD back is DLSS.

There are not enough games with ray tracing to really affect choice either way, but DLSS has real benefit, especially those wanting to game on their 4K TVs.

I hope the announcement includes an AMD option for similar functionality.Quote

Limited quantity, So basically only reviewers getting cards and maybe a handful of actual customers, This year has been terrible for GPU launches.Quote

Well, at least it's very similar to other RDNA2 cards so top AMD fans don't have to endure another VII. As in, it probably won't get second class treatment driver wise.

But it does seem like VII in many other respects - limited stock, outlier in line-up and rumoured fairly high power usage. Halo product which will compete against Nvidia's highest end "regular" card.Quote
