Pros: super solid build inside out, very quiet, really fast. I am using a Corsair 850W PSU with no issues but I'm not stressing the card beyond factory defaults. If you want to raise power limits, you may want a 1000W PSU.
UPDATE 02/11: the card stays below 400W in normal operation, keeping my entire system (Ryzen 5800X) well within 750W max (no overclocking, everything stock), so the Corsair is sufficient. The card also keeps nice and cool during gaming, 50-60C, inside a clean case with good airflow.
Cons: it's not cheap, and, quiet and cool comes with a large and heavy cooler. you'll need space in your case, and the included (or an alternative) support bar.
Overall Review: I think this is currently the best Radeon card.
Pros: Quiet and powerful. Absolutely trumps my merc 319 6800xt I had before this. Zero coil whine and overclocks with ease. Very very happy.
Cons: Expensive af
Overall Review: Does 2650mhz (actual) and 2150 on them (fast timings) at 1040mv. With fans still set at quiet it stays under 63c in games / benches.
Pros: -High frame rates so far in game (about 20-50 more than my previous 1080ti in Path of Exile maxed at 1440)
-Stays reasonably cool
-Fan noise is relatively low
-Easy RGB integration with the power color software (I use an msi board)
Cons: -That price (thanks 2020)
-My card has some significant coil whine when I start gaming. It tapers off after about 10-20 minutes, but that first chunk is migraine inducing. Your mileage may vary
-Crashes, but I'm more inclined to blame that on Radeon software and conflicts with my overclock than the hardware
-This is a chonker of a card, so make sure your case has the room for it and your case can brace it or has room for the included brace
Overall Review: This was NOT a smart purchase. This was very much a "my old card died, I'm not buying from scalpers, this is what I could get, and 2020 was a dumpster fire, so heck with it I'm treating myself."
That said, if you want a beast of a card, you don't mind the driver bugginess, and you can match the price of the card in a donation to a deserving charity because Seriously, people need help right now, enjoy! But do not buy this card unless you are Sure that this is the card you want or price to performance is utterly meaningless to you.
In a perfect world, I would have gotten a 3080 or waited for the RX 7000 series to let AMD work the kinks out. But that's not the world we live in and I could have done a lot worse.
Pros: This card was much faster than anticipated, makes my Threadripper do some real work.
Gaming at 5120x1440 in 10bit HDR10 /w Freesync and always getting over 60fps in modern games on ULTRA settings across the board. Runs CyberPunk ~68fps, FarCry 6 ~80fps, MS Flight Simulator ~70fps, and Battlefield 2042 at 120fps! (All ultra except HBAO shut off).
When idling it sips electricity and averages around 20 watts, but be careful you unlock the power target and the card can jump to 360 watts with the right game. Make sure you have a good PSU, Im using an Corsair RM850 and its handling a threadripper + this card no problems and barely getting warm.
Cons: cons: price. I paid a premium but I was ready to get the last card I was going to buy for a long time. The card is frikkin HUGE. Not a real con but its girthy, like real girthy.
Overall Review: Overall I am beyond satisified buying this coming from an RX 480 lol, yeah big jump up like by 10x faster kinda margins.
Pros: Easy switch from Nvidia.
Never owned any AMD products.
Overall Review: Would buy again. Intel and Nvidia have always been my go to. Will def look at AMD in the future.
Pros: One of the best looking GPUs.
Dual bios is a plus.
Powerful enough to max the framerate on my monitor on most games.
Cons: Very big. GPU sag is real with this one, which is why a sag bracket is included.
Instruction manual could be more detailed, particularly regarding sag bracket.
Overall Review: If you have already decided on the 6900xt, this is the one you don't know you need. You won't be disappointed.
Pros: - Massive heat sink
- Fans operate quietly on stock curve
- Temperatures well under control even under heavy load
- Easily hit 2.5GHz over clock
Cons: - Very large, very heavy (but this is a high end GPU...so just stating it as a con, but to be fair it is an expected con)
- Very costly (again expected since you are purchasing the top tier card)
Overall Review: Overall this is certainly one of the if not the highest quality GPUs I have owned whether Nvidia or AMD. This is the first ever PowerColor product I have purchased and I have to say I am very impressed. Only thing I don't love is I haven't figured out how to change the LED color from red yet if it is possible to do so. If you want a 6900XT this is certainly an excellent card.
Pros: -Handles anything you throw at it.
-OC switch actually boosts performance
-Nice looking card
Cons: - I knew it going in but it does need at least 850W (900 recommended) but I recommend 1,000W PSU. 3 8 pin connectors makes it a little harder for cable management but still doable.
= It is BIG. make sure you have the room for it! 3 slots wide and almost 13" long.
- The provided support stand is not great. With most of the real estate on the bottom side of a standard horizontal mounting configuration being taken up with fans there are only a couple of places that the support stand can be placed and unfortunately those places could not work in my case. You must have support under this card! It is HEAVY at 3 slots wide. I was able to get a simple support bar that screws into the back of the case and it is fine but just another expense.
Overall Review: This is a 6900xt and it runs as expected. It is overall pretty quiet but uses a ton of power in OC mode so don't skimp on the PSU. I would recommend this GPU if you don't mind the cost but I think a 6800xt would (if you could get one) be almost as good on most games. I went with a 6900xt because it was available and the 6800xt wasn't. It is a great card overall. The RGB on the Powercolor Red Devil is nice and fits well with the rest of the case it is installed in.
