ASUS is first on the scene with a custom RX 6900 XT graphics card, the company recently unleashed their ASUS TUF Gaming RX 6900 XT to the world. The Radeon RX 6900 XT will be available at 9AM EST today (December 8th, 2020) along with independent reviews.

The graphics card itself does feature the same basic design as the TUF Gaming RX 6800 XT with an all-aluminum shorud, reinforced frame and metal backplate packaged into a 2.9 slot form-factor. It is equipped with 3x fans utilizing the company’s latest Axial-tech design, with the center fan spinning counter-clockwise.
As for I/O, there’s no listed specifications, but the renderings show what looks to be 3x DisplayPort(s) and a single HDMI, meaning the company has decided to forgo the USB-C port in favor of an extra DisplayPort.
Unfortunately, there’s no work on factory clock speeds just yet, but we expect this card will likely carry at least a modest overclock from the reference 2250 MHz for the Radeon 6900 XT.
No word yet on specific pricing for this model, however, the RX 6900 XT will retail for $999 MSRP. That said, custom models will likely be priced higher, if the RX 6800 series models are anything to go by. Hopefully, this one sticks closer to that MSRP, but it remains to be seen as high demand and short supply has inflated pricing across the graphics market.
