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.
A prior rumor also suggested the Radeon RX 6600 XT could debut at $399 (though it was said AMD is still up in the air about the MSRP), and offer performance comparable to a Radeon RX 5700 XT or GeForce GTX 1080 Ti.
As for the Radeon RX 6600, it is rumored to wield a Navi 23 XL GPU with 1,792 stream processors, with 4GB or 8GB of GDDR6 memory (16Gbps) linked to the same bus width, with the same memory bandwidth and amount of Infinity Cache.
There’s been no mention of the suspected performance of the Radeon RX 6600 or where pricing will land. However, if the rumors about the Radeon RX 6600 XT prove accurate, both of these models could prove popular, depending on how much they cost and if they are actually available to purchase for more than 2 seconds after launch.
