AMD confirms that it is working on the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card based on the RDNA 2 architecture for release in the first half of this year 2021 and we have more details on what its performance target is.
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT aims to play games at 1440p with 12GB GDDR6
According to information from the Twitter user Andreas Schilling, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card aims to be able to play games at 1440p resolution. That’s AMD’s plan for all buyers of this mid-range model. It is also confirmed to have 12GB of VRAM memory, an amount of memory similar to what Nvidia’s RTX 3060 offers and greater than the amount of the RTX 3060 Ti.
During the presentation of the RX 6000, AMD revealed that it was planning to launch more graphics cards and one of them is the RX 6700 XT, although there will be more models that have not yet been announced, such as the hypothetical RX 6600 XT or RX 6500 XT.
The RX 6700 XT will use the Navi 22 chip, which offers somewhat lower performance than the Navi 21, the one used in the RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT graphics cards. The GPUs with GDDR6 memory would have a 192-bit bus interface. In this way, the RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT would be geared towards 4K gaming.
The plan is for there to be two models, the RX 6700 XT and the RX 6700, which use the Navi 22 XT and Navi 22 XL chips, respectively, which have 40 compute units or 2560 streaming processors. The 12 GB of memory has a speed of 16 Gbps, with a bandwidth of 384 GB/s.
Soon™ – sometime in H1 2021 or is it Q1? 🤷🏼♂️
