Why it matters: We've known for some time now that the Radeon RX 6600 and AMD RX 6600 XT are coming soon and their launch seems imminent. PowerColor lists both cards on their website, although they don't include details like specification or dates.
VideoCardz has spotted both unreleased AMD products on the Taiwanese manufacturer's website, indicating a future release. The listings will be available on the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website about two weeks after the six GB Radeon RX 6600 XT card is sent out. An image of the card was also leaked in May.
The Radeon RX 6600 XT is expected to be based on the Navi 23 GPU in the Radeon Pro W6600 and RX 6600M, making it a mid-range phone. It turns out that it is likely to encounter the RTX 3060 . GPU max 28CU, 2048 canopies, 32MB Infinity Cache and 8GB GDDR6 on 128-bit bus. The speed of this card can reach 2.9GHz with low power consumption of around 100W.
AMD CEO Lisa Su previously said the Radeon single reference graphics card, the RX 6000 series, which is said to be based on the Navi 23 GPU, will hit the market in the first half of the year. We're past that point now, but signs are that the RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT will enter the market very soon. Last week also saw an image of the RX 6600 XT leak as a marketing image (below) online.
Now is the time for AMD to launch new cards. The volatile graphics card market, which has long been plagued by availability issues and price inflation, is finally showing signs of recovery, due to the crackdown on cryptocurrency mining in China, which has led to the sale of worn out cards. It helps greatly. We've also seen lower prices and better availability in Germany, more crime-fighting measures, and Nvidia reports an oversupply of the RTX 3060 and lower average eBay sales prices. p>
