AMD has now officially introduced the RX 6600 XT. The new RDNA 2-based card has 8GB of GDDR6 128-bit memory, has 32 compute units (CUs) and a clock-speed that can go up to 2.6GHz as standard. Therefore, the OEM aims it squarely at 1080p performance - not to mention potentially reasonable estimated starting prices once it emerges via partners on August 11, 2021.

Several months' worth of leaks and rumors have finally (albeit partially) culminated in AMD's launch for the new RX 6600 XT. The card has debuted with a more or less tone-responsive 8GB of GDDR6 memory, with 32 compute units and a 2,359MHz "Game" clock.

Then again, this can be boosted to 2,589MHz in the new RX variant. AMD asserts that they help the 6600 XT to achieve a performance enhanced by "up to 15%" when set to average with max settings across certain (unspecified) AAA titles "compared to the competition". More specifically, the card is rated for 125fps "on average across a wide range of modern AAA titles" - albeit at 1080p resolutions only.

Therefore, the RX 6600 XT is definitely aimed at those in need of a brand-new card, yet who are still OK without 4K. It does, however, feature many new AMD technologies one might expect of fresh Radeon graphics, Smart Access Memory, FidelityFX, Radeon Anti-Lag, Radeon Boost, DirectX 12 support and 32MB of Infinity Cache included.

AMD has also confirmed that the 6600 XT will become available via OEMs including XFX, SAPPHIRE, PowerColor, MSI, Gigabyte, BIOSTAR, ASRock and Asus from August 11, 2021. Finally, the price a consumer might expect to pay for one of those companies' resulting cards is set at ~US$379.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
