AMD Radeon RX 6600

AMD Radeon RX 6600

The AMD Radeon RX 6600 is a mid-range desktop graphics card that is based on the RDNA 2 architecture and uses the Navi 23 chip. It offers 1,792 shaders and 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM with a 128 bit memory interface (14 Gbps, 224 GB/s max).

The RDNA2 architecture offers new features like SAM (Smart Access Memory) and Infinity Cache. PCIe 4.0, RIS (Radeon Image Sharpener) and Raytracing support are also included in the RX6600.

The gaming performance of the RX 6600 is comparable to a GeForce RTX 2060 Super (Desktop). The previous generation Radeon RX 5600 can be easily bested. Therefore, the RX 6600 is best suited for demanding games in 1080p and high details.

The power consumption is rated at 132 Watt (TGP) by AMD and therefore offers a rather low power consumption compared to the previous generations with similar performance.
