Another AMD board partner has registered Radeon RX 6700 XT SKUs with the EEC in Russia. Powercolor has registered multiple SKUs with the regulatory body, all of which have 12 GB of VRAM. However, there are also a few references to the Radeon RX 6700, which AMD appears to have designed with 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM.

PowerColor has followed Gigabyte and ASRock in registering Radeon RX 6700 XT SKUs with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) ahead of an anticipated 1H 2021 release. The card may arrive as soon as next month if some rumours are to be believed, which would provide AMD with a foil against NVIDIA's RTX 3060 series.

While the listing does not provide any additional details about the RX 6700 XT, it sheds some light on the RX 6700. Previously believed to have 12 GB of VRAM, Powercolor's listing implies that AMD has gone with 6 GB instead. Unsurprisingly, the card has the GDDR6 variety, rather than anything newer like GDDR6X. Additionally, the RX 6700 model numbers suggest that the card has three DisplayPorts and a single HDMI connection.

AMD is expected to launch the RX 6700 on a Navi 22 XL GPU with a 192-bit memory bus. The card may have a minimum TGP of 146 W, along with an upper target of 156 W. AMD's Infinity Cache should make an appearance, too.
