It will work in Big Sur but you must have it updated with the 11.4 Big Sur beta beforehand (put the installer onto a USB stick, then run to install on main drive) because 11.3 is troublesome.

Thanks!
I will wait for .4 final which is probably a couple of weeks from now. Was just curious if anyone has tried 6900XT already, since it's in the official documents for support already.

I have the reference 6900XT as well (Asus model to be specific).

Can confirm HDMI and DP are working just fine, haven't tried the USB-C connection as I don't have an adapter.
I'm waiting on my water block from corsair to arrive, but so far, haven't had any issues with the unit under the beta.

The RC build has been publicly released already. No support yet for Navi 22 (RX 6700 XT) -- might (or might not) happen in 11.5.

Nothing like owning a 2,500 dollar paperweight :(. I feel like not supporting all 6900XTs is even more glaring than 6700 because I literally bought the card on the advertising. update notes said 6900XT not "some 6900XT", they didn't say 6700 :(

Do you use also usb c as a usb hub? I have a 6800 reference and usb c only works for video output :(
No just USB-c to HDMI adapter but it has video and audio. Someone earlier mentioned connecting their phone to iit and getting handoff working.
