After launching the RX 6700 XT display chip aimed at mid-to-high-end 1440p players, today AMD has once again put down RDNA2 and launched the RX 6600 XT, the successor to the RX 5600 XT. Compared with the previous generation, the computing power of the 6600 XT has increased from 7.19 Tflops to 9.6 Tflops, and the GDDR6 memory configured has also increased from 6GB to 8GB. In fact, the computing power of the 6600 XT is quite close to the previous generation 1440p graphics card RX 5700 XT, so as long as it is not too demanding for games, the 6600 XT running at 1440p should not be a problem.
But having said that, AMD still focuses on the 6600 XT as the “new standard for 1080p games.” In previous generation games like Doom: Eternity, performance can be increased by as much as 1.7 times. AMD also said that 2/3 of the screens currently shipped have a resolution of 1080p, so products like 6600 XT are enough for most players to enjoy.
The 6600 XT has 32 arithmetic units (40 for the 6700 XT), a frequency of 2,359MHz and a power consumption of 160W, and is equipped with technologies such as Radeon Boost to increase the number of frames and Radeon Anti-Lag to reduce latency. Of course, optical tracking is also necessary. It’s just that the performance of the 6700 XT, which is one order higher than that of NVIDIA, is slightly worse than that of NVIDIA. It should be difficult to expect too much of the 6600 XT.
At present, the price and launch date of the 6600 XT are still unclear. It is only known that the products will be launched by partners such as Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, and ASRock. As a reference, the previous suggested price of the RX 5600 XT was US$300, but considering the current shortage of chips, it is difficult to say whether the suggested price or the reference value is.
