The RX 6900 XT equips the Navi 21 XTX GPU, but AMD would have in its possession a more powerful variant, which is called ” XTXH “. In addition, a model called Nashira Point and another variant called ” XLE ” have been leaked.
It is possible that AMD has not presented all its RX 6000, according to the leak of 2 models on the USB-IF website. Until now, the most powerful Navi 21 GPU was equipped with the RX 6900 XT (XTX), but we have seen the XTXH variant which could refer to a more powerful model or simply a variant of the XTX chip.
AMD Navi 21 XTXH and XLE appear on USB-IF, GPUs with HBM2E?
Sometimes, leaks come from unexpected places, and this is one example of this. USB-IF (Implementers Forum) is the website of the USB implementations forum, that is, of the creators of USB. Its domain “.org” already warns that it is an organization, and we are sure that you would think of this website as the last place to leak.
The RX 6000 are based on the RDNA2 architecture and equip Navi 21 GPUs, specifically: XL, XT and XTX (in theory). However, the news focuses on a possible variant of the Navi 21 XTX that we do not know anything about whose name is XTXH, will it be just as powerful or will its performance be superior to the RX 6900 XT?
Some think that it would be a Radeon Pro GPU, which is focused on the professional environment. The product in question was listed with a 27W PDP, referring to the power of the USB Type-C connector. So this assumes a 4th Radeon GPU with this connector.
We have seen the same in the AMD XLE model, a variant of the Navi 21 XL, which is the GPU that equips the RX 6800. Due to experience in naming, when variants arise with the letter “E”, they usually refer to Efficiency. This means that a low consumption prevails over a high power.
Certain analysts suggest that the XTXH variant would be a Navi 21 GPU with HBM 2 E memory, which could land for notebooks. Typically, GPUs for laptops usually incorporate the initials “M”; Also, there was a leak about MacOS in which the firmware supported Navi21 with GDDR6 and HBM2 memory.
AMD Nashira Point, RX 6800 ES?

Another discovery is a model called “Nashira Point” about which absolutely nothing is known. The user @_rogame has spoken about this curious GPU, pointing out that it is a RX 6800 ES .
Users are quick to comment on it, suggesting that it is a model belonging to the Navy Flounder (Navi 22), Sienna Cichlid (Navi 21) or Dimgrey Cavefish (Navi 23). In this sense, we will keep you informed because we do not have more information about Nashira Point.
CES 2021, key event for presentations
That said, it is clear that AMD has the launch of new graphics cards ready. At the moment, CES 2021 is just around the corner, an event that can leave very interesting news related to it. So stay tuned to Professional Review because we will cover the entire event.
Do you think that these are more powerful GPUs? Professional or domestic?
