AMD’s Radeon RX 6950 XT to Draw up to 390W of Power Under Load: Up to 4% Faster than the 450W RTX 3090 Ti

AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 6950 XT GPUs will offer a marginal increase in performance thanks to the use of faster memory, higher clocks, and TGP. While the reference model will have a TGP of 335W (up from 300W on the 6900 XT), MSI’s Gaming X Trio and Sapphire’s Nitro+ Pure variants will draw up to 372W and 390W, respectively.

Both the SKUs will feature a base TGP of 320-330W but using the Radeon control panel or Afterburner, you can raise it by 12-20%. Most of the AIB models will have the same power ranges. These GPUs will leverage the updated Navi 21 KXTX die along with 16GB 18Gbps memory.

The Radeon RX 6950 XT along with its siblings will launch on the 10th of May for an MSRP of $1,099. AMD promises a 4% and 11% performance advantage over the RTX 3090 Ti and 3090, respectively. While this may be the case in purely rasterized workloads, the RTX GPUs will definitely have an edge in ray-traced games.
