AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT benchmark results and photos leak ahead of expected August launch
VideoCardz claims to have discovered a post on Baidu containing benchmark results and photos of the Radeon RX 6600 XT, AMD's next desktop graphics card. Apparently, AMD will reveal the Radeon RX 6600 XT on August 11, albeit perhaps only as custom cards produced by its add-in board (AIB) partners.
While the Baidu post has now been deleted, VideoCardz obtained a backup, which we have included below. Clearly an AIB card, the Navi 23-based card relies on an aluminium heat sink and two fans, along with a single 8-pin power connector. Additionally, a sticker on the graphics card confirms that the Radeon RX 6600 XT has 8 GB of VRAM, rumoured to be GDDR6 operating on a 128-bit bus. The RX 6600 XT is believed to feature 2,048 cores and 32 MB of Infinity Cache, too.
Moreover, two screenshots show the Radeon RX 6600 XT's performance in Ludashi, a benchmark available in China. Reputedly, the RX 6600 XT outperformed the RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti, both GA104-powered cards. We would recommend taking these results with a healthy amount of scepticism though, especially considering that they remain unverified.
Apparently, AMD plans to launch its first Navi 23-based card for US$399, matching the RTX 3060 Ti. The RX 6600 XT may only come close to matching the performance of the RX 5700 XT though, rather than the RTX 3060 Ti or RTX 3070 Ti.
