NITRO Charged For Gamers

Every Game. Every Frame. 4K Powerhouse Performance. The NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT headlines with 5120 stream processors and boasts a Boost Clock of up to 2285 Mhz and a Game Clock of up to 2050 MHz.To upgrade raytracing, it comes equipped with 80 ray accelerators and 80 compute units. The latest 16GB of GDDR6 high-speed memory is clocked at 16 Gbps Effective with 128MB of Infinity Cache, which dramatically reduces latency and power consumption, delivering higher overall gaming performance than traditional architectural designs. The graphics card also provides up to 4 output ports including 1x HDMI 2.1 VRR and FRL and 3x Display Port 1.4 with DSC  to support the latest display monitors on the market.

Innovative NITRO+ Features

Experience new NITRO+ design features on the NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT! A new Hybrid Fan Blade design has been incorporated which merges the key strengths of the traditional axial fan and blower fan. It takes the quiet design of a traditional axial fan and combines it with the strong air pressure of a blower fan to escalate the downward air pressure through the fan with up to 5.5% improvement while enabling a silent operation compared to previous generations.

The NITRO+ Free Flow feature has been revamped into a new quiet gaming experience with lower thermal temperatures using a modernized Wave Fin Design and V Shape Fin Design for GPU Cooling. When the wind enters the wave fin module, it lowers friction to reduce the wind cut noise while the V Shape Fin Design on top of the GPU also accelerates and centralizes the airflow around the GPU to disperse heat efficiently and effectively.


                                                                                                                                               Wave Fin Design


  V Shape Fin Design for GPU Cooling 

The unique Integrated Cooling Module is an innovation that combines the Memory & VRM Cooling Module that actively cools the memory, MOFSET and chokes. Two heat pipes installed underneath the module disperse the heat from the components at an elevated efficiency.


When compared to the previous K5 Memory Pad, the newly implemented K6.5 Memory Pad has a nearly 38% better thermal conductivity between the components and the cooler.

Leading Tri-X Cooling Solution

The cooling technology of the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT is led by the award winning Tri-X Cooling Solution. Two larger fans and one smaller fan spin in reverse directions to power the Tri-X Cooling Solution, which boosts wind flow beneath the fans. The tunneled fins on the fans work to increase the convection of airflow to ensure that Tri-X cooling maintains a low temperature and noise. The NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT balances the distribution and thermal dissipation to enable the full power of AMD’s groundbreaking RDNA™ 2 gaming architecture.

A Smarter Choice for Gamers: Quality Components

Enable light workloads to run under complete silence with the Intelligent Fan Control feature. Coupled with the Precision Fan Control feature, which reduces fan rotation cycle differential, the fan IC control on the graphics card ensures that the cooling and noise performance of the card creates a silent and icy-cool gaming experience.

To protect the quality of life of the fans, the new fan design continues to feature Dual Ball Bearing Fans, which provide an up to 85% longer lifespan than regular sleeve bearing fans and an upscale increase in silence. The fan favourite SAPPHIRE Quick Connect Fan is a solution with just one screw holding the fans securely in place to easily detach the fans for a quick cleaning.

Use the physical switch on the card to move between performance mode or silent mode to choose the best BIOS experience for your gaming with the Dual BIOS feature. With the TriXX Software BIOS Switch position, gamers can easily switch from performance mode to silent mode and back using our TriXX software for a quick and convenient way toalternate between the dual BIOS modes.


For quieter operation, the Secondary, or Silent setting reduces clock targets and raises target temperatures.


An ARGB Experience for Every PC

Customize the beautiful ARGB LED shroud design alongside the ARGB backplate on the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT using the SAPPHIRE TriXX Software. Control the different LED colours with a variety of RGB modes to bring out your own personal style in your PC build.

The 3-pin header in the tail of the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT enables the external synchronization of RGB LEDs between the graphics card and the motherboard. Gamers can select if the graphics card performs the RGB LED effects independently or if the motherboard acquires control.

TriXX Boost

Elevate the performance of the SAPPHIRE NITRO+ AMD Radeon™ RX 6900 XT by utilizing TriXX Boost to push your frames. This innovative feature enables gamers to run games at a higher FPS by reducing the rendering resolution and up scaling the final output image by integrating Radeon Image Sharpening.
