A cropped image of what appears to be the die of AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card has made its way online. Evidence of the Big Navi GPU was first shown via a YouTube video, posted by Coreteks.
As mentioned, the image itself has been heavily edited and cropped, in an effort by Coreteks to protect his unnamed source. Even the capacitors around the die have been changed out, displaying instead capacitors found on the Radeon RX 5700 XT.
Despite the visual changes, Coreteks’ video does give us some numbers; he provides the total die size, which is 536mm² or 29.5 PCIe lanes tall by 18.5 PCIe lanes wide. By comparison, this makes it AMD’s second-largest GPU die to date, right after the Fiji GPU that was first introduced with the Radeon Fury X.
At this stage, there’s still no official details from AMD about the number of transistors being housed within its Navi 21 die, but again, Coreteks is estimating its to be around 26.3 billion transistors. In addition, earlier rumours have speculated that the die will run at a frequency of 2220MHz, have 80 Compute Units, and 16GB GDDR6 graphics memory.
Again, these are merely speculations and thus, the standard disclaimer applies. As it stands, AMD’s big announcement of its Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards are just weeks away, so we just need to be patient.
