According to Greymon55, AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 6950XT GPU is featuring 2.5 GHz boost speed, which makes it at least 250 MHz higher than the existing air-cooled models and 65 MHz faster than the Liquid Edition.
AMD has confusing enthusiast RX 6000 segment. AMD has released three variants of Radeon RX 6900XT graphics cards so far: the liquid-cooled model with Navi 21 XTXH, the vanilla with Navi 21 XTX GPU, and later air-cooled models launched by a board partners and equipped with the XTXH variant as well. According to the rumours the RX 6950XT will be using the XTXH variant and it has a higher-binned chip with increased maximum power and clocks speed.
With 2.5 GHz+ clock speed AMD Navi 21 is nothing special here, as there are models such as Sapphire Toxic Extreme (2730 MHz), Gigabyte AORUS Xtreme WF (2525 MHz), ASUS ROG STRIX LC (2525 MHz), and ASROCK OC Formula. Liquid cooling is common in all these GPUs. But, The fastest air-cooled custom model in all these GPU is XFX Speedster MERC 319 with a clock speed of 2495 MHz.
At the moment it is unclear that if the RX 6950XT is using liquid cooling or a custom liquid cooling solution. But whichever cooling technology this card is using, all board partners will be there, ready to support it.
Also, Greymon55 believes that RX 6950XT might comes with an even higher TBP (Typical Board Power) compared to all existing 6900 series models: 350W. This is even higher than Liquid Cooled (330W) and 50W more than the vanilla 6900 XT series.
AMD’s new flagship GPU is set to launch in Mid-April. This card might compete head to head with GeForce RTX 3090 Ti which is also said to have faster memory and increased TDP and performance over the original model.
