Pros: Amazing cooling Blazing fast FPS in 1440p 200fps on modern warefare avg all max settings
Cons: Very very large. not a big deal but for some it may be. cost inflation 200%
Overall Review: I upgraded from a 6800xt, minor changes over all. this card has to work less to keep my 165hz monitor locked at 165fps. less heat overall and or drops in fps. 1440p My other card was also a nitro+ amazing group of cards. box doesn't come with cool stickers or anything... not that big of a deal. the picture compares the 6800xt to the 6900xt
Pros: The 6900XT is great. It's runs about 50% faster than a 6700xt. Which is spot on for where it should be running. My FPS in RE Village with ray tracing is around 100. The lighting is easy to adjust in Trixx, and it works perfectly with my fan controller to keep all the lights synced. The card as an impressive idel down power consumption. When idel it is consuming around 5-7 watts. It's thermals hold at a decent level, and it cools off at a good rate.
Cons: It doesn't come with the 5v 3 pin cable to connect to a controller. The extra support bracket is a little weird to mount. I didn't end up using it, because it just wasn't going to work with my case the way it should. The screws for my PCI-E slots are on the outside of the case, and have a slide door that comes down on the outside. If your screws for the slats are inside the case it will probably work much better for you.
Overall Review: I would have liked a lower price, but that's not the fault of the card. It's a solid card with solid performance. I am very happy with it's performance from video encoding to gaming.
Pros: Consistently boosts to 2600 MHz in games, temps under load top out at about 77 degrees and it idles (with fans, I don't use zero RPM mode) at 28. Extremely well built.
Cons: Support bracket is a joke; I couldn't get it to fit. I think the bracket was designed for a 2 slot card and not a 2.5 slot card like this is. Honestly, this is a really nit-picky con though. It's still a 5 egg card.
Overall Review: There is a reason why Sapphire is generally well regarded and is a primary partner for AMD graphics cards and this card is a prime example. Actual in-game clocks are running between 2580 and 2610 consistently with temps only reaching the mid to upper 70 C range and typical power draw under 300 watts. It's definitely a highly binned part assembled well. The price is crazy right now, but if you're going to spend ridiculous money it out to at least be on something as well made as this.
Pros: It's a modern video card; there is not much to review: The chipset works as expected, and I get benchmark or better performance out of the assembled card. Sapphire designed a solid mounting system, provided extra supports and clear instructions on their use Cooling is efficient and quiet even under heavy sustained graphics load or stress test.
Cons: The LED connector is rear-exit from the full length frame, so is likely to be obstructed by your chassis. There are alternate routings that will work, so not a big deal, but a watch out if you care deeply about RGB and cable routing.
Overall Review: Would totally recommend, have now owned 4 Sapphire cards and they continue to be a solid producer with out any issues.
Pros: Aesthetic, Availability
Cons: RGB 5V Jumper not included
Overall Review: No regrets, love the card. First Sapphire product I've purchased and no real complaints about the hardware
Pros: Card is performing well Looks good Does not overheat the case
Cons: It is long, but fits well in the Fractal Design Meshify 2 Not so well in the Meshify C, though it will fit if you remove the adjacent fan on the front of the case
Overall Review: I am considering picking up another 6900XT but will likely wait for the price to come down. Someday.
Pros: Works as expected. Upgrade from the 5700xt and the 3900x. Now paired with the 5900x and this 6900xt. My only complaint is maybe I should have waited a week to get it $50 bucks cheaper. Oh well, still a lot better than paying 2 to 3 times more than its worth. Love the Sapphire Nitro product line.
Cons: No issues
Overall Review: Overall Im satisfied
Pros: Put simply, this card is a beast. It can handle anything you throw at it and for a lot of titles, it can also get the job done at 1440p or 4k while still delivering a high refresh rate experience. You have options with this card, whether you want purely the highest framerates, all the eye candy, or a mix between the two, the 6900xt can do it. It gets a little warm though, but I'm sure reapplication of thermal paste/setting a fan curve will fix that. I haven't seen it go above 82c so it's still well within range. Love the RGB backplate and Sapphire logo. If you want to change the RGB colors, you'll need a splitter which is unfortunately not included, but the rainbow effect isn't bad at all.
Cons: The price would be the only con of this card honestly, but at the same time, if you need a card you need a card. This card is much cheaper than the 3090 and even though it doesn't support DLSS or fully support ray tracing, as long as you aren't concerned strictly about ray-tracing performance, it's still a great buy. Most engines support resolution scaling in one way or another and especially with the introduction of AMD FSR, I think this card will only get better with time.
Overall Review: I would recommend this card to anyone wanting a high refresh rate gaming experience regardless of resolution. At this level of performance, this card basically requires a 240hz monitor, so definitely something to keep in mind. The card itself is very large also, not necessarily a con but definitely something to keep in mind. It barely fit into my case so you may want to take measurements beforehand.
Overall Review: After receiving the ASUS TUF RX 6900 XT, I was bothered by how loud the coil whine was. It was easily audible when sitting at my desk with my PC on the floor. So I returned it and ordered this card. As far as performance goes I cannot tell any difference. Most importantly, the coil whine is much less noticeable. The one thing I was disappointed to see is that this card easily hits 80C while the ASUS TUF card topped out at about 72C. I'm fairly certain those temps are normal for this card, but my expectations where that this card would be a little more premium than the ASUS card.
