AMD may have an answer to the RTX 3060 Ti, along with other budget cards from NVIDIA. Apparently, AMD is gearing to release the RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT, which will both use its Navi 22 GPUs. The cards will have 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM too and may arrive as early as January 2021.

Rumours about the RX 6700 series have reared their head again. This time the rumour stems from Patrick Schur, a software engineer and active leaker on Twitter. Apparently, AMD has two SKUs planned, with the RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT set to join the RX 6800, RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT. Based on a recent EEC listing, AMD may be planning to release an RX 6900, too.

Schur states that the RX 6700 cards will use AMD's Navi 22 GPUs. Both will be paired with 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, which is unsurprising considering that NVIDIA still has exclusivity over the newer GDDR6X variant. This correlates with a similar leak by @_rogame in September. By comparison, the RX 6800 series has 16 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, as does the RX 6900 XT.

Apparently, AMD will base the RX 6700 XT on the Navi 22 XT GPU, with the Navi 22 XTL used for the RX 6700. Additionally, AMD has apparently targeted a total graphics power (TGP) of between 186 W and 211 W for the RX 6700 XT, which would make it a lot less power-hungry than the RX 6800 series.

Meanwhile, the RX 6700 will have an upper target of 156 W. Schur states the card should have a minimum TGP of 146 W too, but adds that its minimum may be even lower. However, he is yet to see a Navi 22 XTL GPU with a TGP below 146 W. According to Videocardz, AMD plans to announce the RX 6700 series in January 2021, which is the same month as several NVIDIA RTX 3000 series launches. There is no word on pricing yet, though.
