LIQUID-COOLED LEVIATHAN
Deep in ASUS R&D labs, engineers theorized the optimal thermal solution for AMD s latest RDNA 2 Architecture. The beast that emerged is a liquid-cooled leviathan capable of drawing maximum performance out of the new chips, while remaining completely cool and quiet. Performance aficionados in search of the most ferocious RX 6900 XT card have found their game.

CLEVER COMPATIBILITY
The LC utilizes 600mm tubing to enable compatibility with large chassis or builds that feature an AIO CPU cooler. The radiator fan cables can be connected directly to the card and secured with included cable ties to keep everything organized.

AURA SYNC
You won t find the Strix LC hiding in the shadows. Instead, this denizen of the deep flaunts its power with addressable RGB lighting that shines through striations in the shroud, an illuminated ROG logo, and two ARGB radiator fans.

GPU TWEAK II
The ASUS GPU Tweak II utility takes graphics card tuning to the next level. It allows you to tweak critical parameters including GPU core clocks, memory frequency, and voltage settings, with the option to monitor everything in real-time through a customizable on-screen display. Advanced fan control is also included along with many more features to help you get the most out of your graphics card.

RADEON SOFTWARE
The latest Radeon Software Adrenalin 2020 Edition unleashes the full potential of your GPU with day-0 drivers optimized for new game releases and a highly customizable gaming experience.

Powerhouse Performance
AMD Radeon RX 6900 Series graphics cards deliver ultra-high frame rates and serious 4K visuals. Get breathtaking gaming experiences with powerful new compute units, groundbreaking AMD Infinity Cache, and up to 16GB of dedicated GDDR6 memory. And, when paired with an AMD Ryzen 5000 Series desktop processor, AMD Smart Access Memory technology offers new levels of gaming performance.

Vivid Visuals
AMD Radeon RX 6900 Series graphics cards pull you into the action with immersive gaming technologies and support for DirectX 12 Ultimate. Experience realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections along with rich detail thanks to DirectX Raytracing (DXR), variable rate shading (VRS), and AMD FidelityFX features, optimized for AMD RDNA 2 architecture.

Elevated Experiences
Instant responsiveness and smooth gaming are leveled-up with low-latency technology from AMD Radeon Anti-Lag and AMD Radeon Boost. Propel your gaming experience with the latest HDMI 2.1 VRR technology, USB-C enabled VR headsets, or over 1250 AMD FreeSync technology-enabled gaming displays.

FidelityFX Contrast Adaptive Sharpening
Contrast Adaptive Sharpening (CAS) helps increase visual quality with optional upscaling that restores detail lost after Temporal Anti-Aliasing (TAA) is applied.

For games that support FidelityFX CAS, turning off Radeon Image Sharpening in Radeon Software to avoid over-sharpening is recommended.

FidelityFX Ambient Occlusion
AMD RDNA architecture-optimized Combined Adaptive Compute Ambient Occlusion (CACAO) dynamically and efficiently helps improve the appearance of objects based on their exposure to ambient light.

FidelityFX Variable Shading
AMD RDNA 2 architecture supports variable rate shading (VRS) to analyze luminance and frame motion to help optimize rendering for better performance without lowering image quality.

DirectX Raytracing
DirectX Raytracing (DXR) adds a new level of graphics realism to games through effects like reflections, shadows, and global illumination at real-time frame rates on AMD Radeon RX 6000 series graphics, thanks to AMD RDNA 2 architecture support for hardware-accelerated raytracing.

Processor

CUDA CUDA (aka Compute Unified Device Architecture) is a parallel computing platform and programming model created by NVIDIA and implemented by the graphics processing units (GPUs) that they produce. CUDA gives program developers direct access to the virtual instruction set and memory of the parallel computational elements in CUDA GPUs.
Graphics processor family The category to which the graphics processor (GPU) belongs e.g. Southern Islands family of Radeon processors (made by AMD), GeForce 600 (made by NVIDIA).
AMD
Graphics processor Also known as a graphics processing unit (GPU), this is a specialized electronic circuit designed to rapidly manipulate and alter memory to accelerate the creation of images in a frame buffer intended for output to a display. GPUs are used in embedded systems, mobile phones, personal computers, workstations, and game consoles. Modern GPUs are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics.

2365 MHz
Maximum resolution The maximum number of pixels that can be displayed in the image. It is usually quoted as width × height,: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels.
7680 x 4320 pixels
Parallel processing technology support Parallel processing technology is the simultaneous use of more than one CPU or processor core to execute a program or multiple computational threads. Ideally, parallel processing makes programs run faster because there are more engines (CPUs or Cores) running it. In practice, it is often difficult to divide a program in such a way that separate CPUs or cores can execute different portions without interfering with each other. Most computers have just one CPU, but some models have several, and multi-core processor chips are becoming the norm. There are even computers with thousands of CPUs.

Memory

Discrete graphics adapter memory
16 GB
Graphics adapter memory type The type of memory used by the video card. Often a combination of dedicated memory (Video RAM or VRAM) and dynamic system memory is used. UMA stands for Unified Memory Architecture, and is a computer memory architecture that allows the graphics processing unit to share system memory. Other abreviations: RAM = Random Access Memory, SDRAM = synchronous dynamic RAM, DDR = double-data-rate.
GDDR6
Memory bus Hardware and software that connects the main memory to the memory controller in computer systems. Originally, general-purpose buses like VMEbus and the S-100 bus were used, but to reduce latency, modern memory buses are designed to connect directly to DRAM chips, and thus are designed by chip standards bodies such as JEDEC.
256 bit
Data transfer rate Rate at which data can be transferred. Usually expressed in units per second. May vary with network configurations.
16 Gbit/s

Ports & interfaces

Interface type
PCI Express 4.0
HDMI ports quantity The number of sockets (ports) for HDMI connections. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is a compact audio/video interface for transferring uncompressed video data and compressed/uncompressed digital audio data from a HDMI-compliant device ("the source device") to a compatible computer monitor, video projector, digital television, or digital audio device. HDMI is a digital replacement for existing analog video standards.

Shader model version A shader is a program used in 3D computer graphics to determine the final surface properties of an object or image. This can include arbitrarily complex descriptions of light absorption and diffusion, texture mapping, reflection and refraction, shadowing, surface displacement and post-processing effects. It is also used to refer to video graphics hardware units that run these programs.
4.0
OpenGL version OpenGL (Open Graphics Library) is a specification defining a cross-language cross-platform API for writing applications that produce 3D computer graphics (and 2D computer graphics as well). The interface consists of over 250 different function calls which can be used to draw complex three-dimensional scenes from simple primitives.
