AMD Radeon RX 6600 marketing assets leak ahead of the card's expected announcement this month
VideoCardz has discovered that Gigabyte is preparing to release a Radeon RX 6600, the non-XT version of the card that AMD unveiled in July. AMD has not stated when it plans to announce another RX 6000 series card, let alone the RX 6600. Rumour has it that the budget option will debut towards the end of this month, though.
Presumably, more add-in board partners (AIBs) than just Gigabyte will launch custom RX 6600 cards, too. It remains to be seen if AMD will release a reference card this time around, which it decided against doing for the RX 6600 XT.
Regardless, the leaked marketing assets confirm that the RX 6600 has 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM with PCIe 4.0 support. AMD will also target 1080p gaming again, as it does with the RX 6600 XT. VideoCardz has observed that the RX 6600 has a shorter PCB than its XT sibling, albeit still with an 8-pin power connector.
The RX 6600 is expected to utilise a Navi 23 XL GPU, on which AMD has included 1,792 cores and 32 MB of Infinity Cache. GPU clock speeds remain unknown currently, but its VRAM should run at 16 Gbps on a 128-bit bus, yielding a 256 GB/s bandwidth. Pricing for the RX 6600 has not yet leaked, either.
