Lenovo (via HXL) has teased the Radeon RX 6900 XT and Radeon RX 6800 XT Legion Edition graphics cards on the company’s Weibo account. The graphics cards are likely an exclusive for Lenovo’s Savior Blade 7000P 2021 gaming PCs, though.
It’s unknown if Lenovo manufactures the Legion graphics cards itself or the company relies on a third-party OEM. Aesthetically, the Radeon RX 6800 XT Legion Edition looks awfully familiar, like a dolled-up Radeon VII. The rectangular shroud makes a comeback with the characteristic “R” logo with red illumination in the corner. To give the design a new twist, Lenovo opted for a black exterior and some RGB lighting.
The Radeon RX 6800 XT Legion Edition looks a tad bigger than AMD’s reference edition, however, so it should still take up three PCI slots inside your case. The triple-fan cooling setup remains untouched, but the backplate has been customized to Lenovo’s Legion branding.
The Radeon RX 6800 XT Legion Edition draws power from two standard 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Other than that, we don’t know the graphics card’s other specifications.
Lenovo has given its Savior Blade 7000P gaming systems a much-needed upgrade to AMD’s latest Ryzen 5000 (codename Vermeer) processors. Therefore, the Radeon RX 6800 XT Legion Edition will be able to leverage the Smart Access Memory (SAM) feature, which essentially allows the processor and graphics card to tap into each other’s memory. This results in a nice boost in gaming performance.
The graphics card shortage is affecting both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards, and it doesn’t look like the situation will improve anytime soon. Lenovo’s Savior Blade 7000P 2021 could provide consumers an option to gain access to a high-end graphics card, even if it’s just in China.
