AMD has introduced a liquid-cooled version of the Radeon RX 6900 XT GPU
AMD is bringing liquid cooling to the Radeon RX 6900 XT The new version of the GPU. The graphics card can run at a higher clock speed than its counterparts, up to 2,250Mhz instead of 2,015Mhz. According to VideoCardz, it also has a higher board power of 330 watts compared to the 300W board power of the standard RX 6900 XT.
Perhaps most interestingly, the Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Edition seems to have increased memory bandwidth from the standard model, as The Verge notes. It appears to be up from 16Gbps to 18Gbps. Engadget has contacted AMD for confirmation. Otherwise, the liquid-cooled GPU has the same amount of memory size and infinity cache, and an identical number of compute units to the RX 6900 XT.
It has a two-slot height, so it's smaller than the air-cooled model, which required 2.5 slots. The Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Edition boasts an HDMI 2.1 slot, two DisplayPort ports and a a single USB-C one.

"The AMD-designed liquid-cooled Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card is a limited-edition product for select system integrators," an AMD spokesperson told Engadget. "AMD will be making a limited number of Radeon RX 6900 XT liquid cooled reference design graphics cards available to select system integrators, who are a critical part of the gaming ecosystem, to offer this this model through their channels. Please contact system integrator partners for system pricing."
