More details about the Radeon RX 6700 XT have appeared online, with the latest leak seemingly confirming several aspects about AMD's upcoming RDNA 2 cards. Not only does the leak provide images of the Radeon RX 6700 branding, but it provides details about the card's VRAM capacity, its marketed gaming resolution and its expected release dates.

The Radeon RX 6700 XT has reared its head again, courtesy of Andreas Schilling. Taking to Twitter, Schilling published a photo of the RX 6700 XT series' logo that, presumably, has been cribbed from materials that AMD has sent to its board partners. Additionally, Schilling has hinted that AMD will market the RX 6700 XT series for 1440p gaming. By contrast, AMD currently advertises the RX 6000 series for 4K gaming.

Moreover, Schilling states that the RX 6700 XT series will have 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, reiterating previous leaks. As we have reported previously, AMD is believed to have based the RX 6700 series on Navi 22 GPUs with up to 40 Compute Units (CUs) and a 192-bit memory bus. Like the RX 6800 series, the RX 6700 XT is thought to have an XT GPU, and the RX 6700 a lesser XL variant.

The former is expected to offer a TGP of 186 W to 211 W, while AMD may fix the latter at between 146 W and 156 W. Furthermore, Moore's Law Is Dead claimed earlier this month that the RX 6700 XT series would have 64 MB or 96 MB of Infinity Cache and clock speeds in excess of 2.5 GHz.

Previously, Moore's Law is Dead asserted that AMD had scheduled to release the RX 6700 XT in May 2021, but Schilling has hinted that Navi 22 cards could arrive a few months earlier. According to Schilling, AMD will announce RX 6700 XT sometime in the first half of 2021 and possibly even as soon as February or March. Either way, the RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT should allow AMD to compete with the RTX 3060 and the RTX 3060 Ti, assuming that it and NVIDIA continue to match each other's product stacks.

JayzTwoCents may have provided a look at the RX 6700 series, too. In September, the YouTuber published renders of what were, at the time, broadly spoken of as RX 6000 series cards. The triple-fan card became the current RX 6000 series, so it should follow that the dual-fan card is the RX 6700, the RX 6700 XT, or both. If AMD releases the RX 6700 series within the next few months, we imagine more information will leak next month.
