AMD is on the cusp of unveiling the Radeon RX 6700 XT, its answer to NVIDIA's RTX 3060 or RTX 3060 Ti. Ahead of tomorrow's launch, Videocardz has revealed two ASUS custom cards, underlining that AMD plans to bring two versions of the RX 6700 XT to market.

AMD has already officially confirmed that it will reveal a new entry in the RX 6000 series tomorrow, although it has kept quiet on what it plans to release. However, leaks and even AMD's website have suggested that it will be the RX 6700 XT, with the RX 6700 set to arrive next month. In advance of tomorrow's launch, Videocardz has published marketing renders of two ASUS TUF cards, pictured below.

Apparently, ASUS will release the cards as the Radeon RX 6700 XT Dual 12 GB and the Radeon RX 6700 XT TUF Gaming OC 12 GB. While these could be two versions of the same card, AMD supposedly will release ASIC A and ASIC B editions of the Radeon RX 6700 XT. ASIC A is believed to have a higher TGP than ASIC B, which would make the TUF Gaming OC model ASIC A and the Dual 12 GB an ASIC B edition.

Power connector differences underline this difference in TGP, too. According to Videocardz, the Dual 12 GB will have 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors, compared to the dual 8-pin connectors of the TUG Gaming OC. Both variants will have 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM though clocked at 16 Gbps. It is unclear if AMD's board partners will announce RX 6700 XT cards tomorrow, but AMD should reveal when they plan to do so, at any rate.
