AMD is to hold talks with its AIB partners about the approval of custom Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics cards. Alongside the Radeon RX 6900 XT, rumors are surfacing suggesting the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series would hit the market with limited inventory, which will make it a little difficult for consumers to get one early on.
AMD & AIB are in talks to add custom Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics cards
The first report comes from HardwareLuxx, which has stated that AMD is in early talks with its AIBs to approve custom Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics cards for the consumer segment. The RX 6900 XT is the flagship of the “Big Navi” GPU and will be the fastest of the three graphics cards based on the Navi 21 GPU. However, during the announcement, AMD only announced the availability of custom models for the Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards.
The Radeon RX 6900 XT was ruled out for custom model availability by AMD during the reveal. That may change, however, as AIBs and AMD hold talks to establish non-reference models for the flagship graphics card. The AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT will be launched on December 8th, a few weeks after the Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards. The main purpose of this is to allow enough volumes for the Big Navi “Navi 21 XTX” GPU to feed a handful of gaming enthusiasts at launch.
It will be interesting to see if AIBs can manage to allow custom Radeon RX 6900 XT models with AMD. The production of a custom variant of the Radeon RX 6900 XT is hardly or not necessary, as the technical data and performance numbers of the Radeon RX 6800 XT are similar, as Videocardz reports. We’ve also seen some impressive custom designs from ASUS and MSI for the Radeon RX 6800 series and hope to see even better looking designs for the Radeon RX 6900 XT as soon as AMD allows it.
With this in mind, water cooling enthusiasts are offered water blocks from top brands such as EKWB with full coverage. The EKWB has already announced its next generation cooling solutions for the graphics cards of the AMD Radeon RX 6000 series and the Ryzen 5000 desktop CPUs.
In its press release, EKWB announced that they are ready for the big launch and will have the following products ready for the reference models Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800:
- EK-Quantenvektor RX 6800/6900 D-RGB – AMD Radeon Edition
- EK-Quantum Power Kit RX 6800/6900 D-RGB P360 – AMD Radeon Edition
- EK-Quantenreaktion AIO RX 6800/6900 D-RGB P240 – AMD Radeon Edition
- EK-Quantum Vector RX 6800/6900 – AMD Radeon Edition

AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards should only have limited stocks at launch?
The second report is more of a rumor at this point, but comes from credible sources. The first is based on a comment from AMD’s subreddit. The user states that Morele.net has confirmed that AMD will allow pre-orders but does not know exactly when. The same store also stated that when the RX 6000 series launches, the RX 6000 series may experience low inventory levels similar to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 series graphics cards.
“Yesterday I asked the Polish shop Morele.net for pre-orders and they confirmed that there would be an option, but they don’t know when yet. They also expected inventory problems, as was the case with Nvidia gpus. ”

“It should be pretty difficult to make a new card cool. To be honest, it’s pretty unexpected that Lisa Su dares to bet on this release date. I think it shouldn’t increase until December.
In fact, the production capacity has always been sufficient, but how much of that production capacity of Navi can depend on the next generation consoles from Sony and Microsoft. ”
(Google translation) PTT forums
The second rumor comes from AquariusZi (via @
) at Chinese PTT forums. The leaker states that it will be difficult to get an AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics card when it is released, and most users will have to wait until December for AMD to have a better supply of cards on hand. This is mainly due to the fact that TSMC’s 7nm capacity is fully packed as it makes chips for next-generation GPUs, as well as AMD’s Ryzen CPUs and APUs. We saw the same thing with AMD’s Ryzen 4000 “Renoir” APU, which had massive demand from OEMs, but AMD was only able to meet a tight supply months after launch.

-Difficile d'avoir une carte AMD a la sortie, attendre décembre pour avoir du stock
-Capacité de prod suffisante , mais sony et microsoft prennent tout (?)
-les stock de renoir commencent a baisser pour laisser place a CZN et rembrandt
It remains to be seen how the launch goes. AMD is about to launch its Ryzen 5000 desktop CPUs on November 5th, followed by the Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 on December 18th, and finally the Radeon RX 6900 XT on December 8th.
