ASRock RX 6900 XT Formula Review: Pushing the Limit

ASRock gives the RX 6900 XT a monster cooler, but plays it somewhat conservatively on the lighting and memory clocks. If this is supposed to be the Formula One of graphics cards, it should have used Navi 21 XTX with 18Gbps GDDR6 memory. It also costs way more than AMD’s reference design, but at least you can find it in stock.

Formula One cars are some of the fastest things with wheels on the planet, so you’d expect the ASRock Radeon RX 6900 XT Formula OC to set some records — and it does. The AMD Navi 21 GPU beating at the heart of the Formula currently ranks third in our GPU benchmarks hierarchy while powering some of the best graphics cards. As an interesting change of pace, you can actually find the ASRock RX 6900 XT Formula in stock at Newegg right now… currently “on sale” for $1,700. That’s basically scalper pricing, and we’ve seen it at $1,900 as well, but we’re not sure if that’s ASRock’s MSRP or Newegg just inflating the price.

Seriously, though, it’s still a terrible time to buy a graphics card, and our GPU price index shows just how overpriced most models are.
