According to reports, AMD plans to launch at least one Radeon RX 6600 series card in three weeks. Rumour has it that the company will unveil two cards, both based on its new Navi 23 GPU. The Radeon RX 6600 may arrive a few months later than the RX 6600 XT, though.

AMD has, apparently, set a launch date for the Radeon RX 6600 XT, benchmarks and photos of which have already leaked. According to Fudzilla, the Radeon RX 6600 XT will arrive on August 11, three weeks from today. VideoCardz speculates that a separate RX 6600 XT announcement event will occur beforehand, so we may start seeing AMD teasing a new product release within the next week or two.

Fudzilla's claims derive from uncited sources, but they do tally with one made by Coreteks earlier this month. Irrespective of a precise launch date, the RX 6600 XT is believed to be AMD's first Navi 23-based graphics card, which will also feature 8 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, 32 MB of Infinity Cache and 2,048 cores.

However, the pair disagree on the launch date of the Radeon RX 6600, a card expected to ship with a cutdown Navi 23 GPU. On the one hand, Fudzilla asserts that AMD will launch the Radeon RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT simultaneously, with custom versions of both available from day one. On the other hand, Coreteks believes that the standard RX 6600 will not arrive until September at the earliest. Reputedly, AMD could be targetting an October release window, too.

Ultimately, we do not have long to wait to find out if Coreteks or Fudzilla are correct. Hopefully, AMD has more stock available of both cards at launch, whenever that is, unlike with the RX 6700 XT, RX 6800 and RX 6900.
