AMD is expanding its mainstream RDNA 2 graphics card line-up today with another Navi 23-based offering, the new Radeon RX 6600. As its name implies, the Radeon RX 6600 is a close relative to the Radeon RX 6600 XT, which launched just a few weeks back. This card also targets roughly the same audience, i.e. budget conscious 1080p gamers, though with proper support for FSR and a growing number of titles that enable it, smooth framerates at higher effective resolutions are also going to be possible. As was the case with the Radeon RX 6600 XT, AMD itself won’t be making its own reference cards for retail. Instead, AMD is leaning on its board partners for Radeon RX 6600 designs and there will...

One thing we can say with supreme confidence is that AMD is not finished fleshing out its Radeon RX 6000 series. Whether any of the cards will ever be in sufficient stock, that's another topic entirely. But there will be more SKUs. Namely, we can expect a Radeon RX 6600 (non-XT) at some point, and if the latest rumors are true, we have some idea about the specifications. First let's talk about the XT version that does exist. The Radeon RX 6700 XT is built around a Navi 23 XT GPU with 2,048 stream processors and 8GB of GDDR6 memory tied to a 128-bit bus, giving it 256GB/s of memory bandwidth. It also has a 1,958MHz base clock, 2,359MHz game clock, and 2,589MHz boost clock (reference specs). The... Read more...
Earlier this month, we got an early look at Gigabyte’s upcoming Radeon RX 6600 Eagle 8G gaming card, which slots under the Radeon RX 6600 XT. Today it’s Sapphire’s turn, as the company’s Radeon RX 6600 Pulse is now listed for preorder at European retailer PC Dig. The thing that sticks out to us the most is how small the card is while maintaining a dual-fan configuration like its Radeon RX 6600 XT Pulse counterpart. This should allow the two-slot gaming card to fit into small-form-factor (SFF) systems easily. Besides the cooling setup, which also appears to include an aluminum heatsink and heat pipes, we also see a single 8-pin power connector. Just a single connector is... Read more...
It's been just over a month since AMD officially launched its Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. That's not the end of the road for AMD's Radeon 6000 series, though. More models will inevitably be introduced, and if newly leaked renders are any indication, a Radeon RX 6600 (non-XT) is in the wings. Let's talk about the XT version first. The Radeon RX 6600 XT is built around a Navi 23 XT GPU with32 compute units, 2,048 stream processors, 32 ray accelerators, and 8GB of GDDR6 memory linked to a 128-bit bus, for 256GB/s of memory bandwidth. It also features 32MB of Infinity Cache, and has a 1,968 base clock, 2,589 boost clock, and 2,359MHz game clock. It's been rumored a regular... Read more...
AMD is on the cusp of expanding its Radeon RX 6000 series with the Radeon RX 6600 XT and Radeon RX 6600, both of which have been the subject of multiple leaks and rumors over the past several weeks. One of the big question marks is pricing. It seems there is some good news on that front—if the latest gossip is to be believed, the cards will land a little cheaper than originally anticipated. Some context here is needed. Earlier this month, multiple respected leakers suggested AMD was on the fence about pricing, and thinking about positioning the Radeon RX 6600 XT as a $399 part. That is not egregious, given the expected performance (reported to be around 5 percent of a Radeon RX 5700 XT... Read more...
It was always a given that AMD would expand its family of Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards to include lower end models at more affordable price points, and that day is apparently coming soon. As in, just a few weeks from now. If the latest rumor is accurate, we can expect AMD to launch the Radeon RX 6600 XT and Radeon RX 6600 on August 11. That is just over three weeks from now. Even if the date is off by a few days (or more), there is still reason to believe the new cards are right around the corner. Case in point, PowerColor recently referenced the Radeon RX 6600 series (and specifically mentioned the Radeon RX 6700 XT) on its website. Though the references have since been removed, a trip...

We've been hearing quite a bit about AMD's incoming Radeon RX 6600 Series of mainstream Navi 23 graphics cards, and an official launch could happen soon. We say this because board partner PowerColor activated product pages for its Radeon RX 6600 and Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics cards. Unfortunately, the listings that VideoCardz first spotted don't give us any additional information other than to confirm that PowerColor will offer several "RX 6600 XT Series" and "RX 6600 Series" graphics cards. But the fact that PowerColor is confident enough to make the pages active right now suggests that AMD may soon be ready to open the floodgates for consumers. PowerColor's revelation comes roughly two weeks... Read more...
AMD will eventually get around to fleshing out its Radeon RX 6000 series with some lower tier models at more affordable price points. Well, in practice anyway—in reality, GPUs of all shapes and sizes are scarce and overpriced in today's landscape. Be that as it may, more GPUs are coming, and a recent leak highlights what to expect from one of them: Navi 23. This is far from the first time we have heard of a Navi 23 part. It has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors, and is expected to power the Radeon RX 6600 XT and Radeon RX 6600, and perhaps even the Radeon RX 6500. It will just depend on how AMD wants to space things out. There's also a Navi 24 GPU in the works, codenamed Beige... Read more...
AMD launched its current generation of high-end gaming cards late last year with Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Radeon RX 6900 XT. Each offer excellent all-around performance along that MSRPs that undercut their NVIDIA counterparts. We say "MSRP" because finding the graphics cards at those prices is near-impossible. Now, the company is ready to extend its RDNA 2 graphics architecture further into the mainstream market with the release of the Radeon RX 6600 and Radeon RX 6600 XT. Earlier this week, several ASRock cards materialized via a Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) filing. In the filing were Radeon RX 6600 XT SKUs, allegedly part of the Phantom Gaming family. Those SKUs were joined... Read more...
A recent patch for Linux issued by AMD essentially confirms that the rumored Radeon RX 6600 will have a third of the amount of Infinity Cache as the already-launched Radeon RX 6700 XT. How this ends up affecting real-world performance obviously remains to be seen, but it is an interesting revelation all the same. What exactly is Infinity Cache, and should you care? This is a part of AMD's second-generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) architecture. AMD introduced a new cache hierarchy with RDNA 2, injecting its latest GPUs with a pool of fast cache. Here's a look... We got our first look at this with the Radeon RX 6800 series. Both the Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800, powered by AMD's Navi 21 GPU... Read more...
