A New Graphics Card From AMD: the RX 6600 XT Comes to the 1080p Market Against the RTX 3060

TECH NEWS – It had been rumoured over the last few days, and it is finally official: AMD has a new graphics card called to conquer the always disputed 1080p environment, which to this day remains the most balanced midpoint between price and performance. We are talking about the RX 6600 XT.

 

As explained by those responsible during the Chinajoy event, the GPU in question will be available from August 11 starting at $ 379, and its goal is clear: to put Nvidia’s 12GB RTX 3060 (MSRP $ 329) on the ropes. ) offering 15% more performance than average for a similar price. These are its characteristics.

GPU:

  • Navi 23
  • LITHOGRAPHY
  • 7 nm (TSMC)
  • TRANSISTORS
  • 11.1 trillion
  • STREAM PROCESSORS
  • 2,048
  • COMPUTATIONAL UNITS
  • 32
  • LIGHTNING ACCELERATORS
  • 32
  • CLOCK
  • 2,359 MHz
  • MEMORY BUS
  • 128 bit
  • MEMORY CAPACITY
  • 8GB GDDR6
  • MEMORY SPEED
  • 16 Gbps
  • BANDWIDTH
  • 256 GB / s
  • ENERGY CONSUMPTION
  • 160 W
  • RECOMMENDED PSU
  • 500

As you can see, RX 6600 XT is an incredibly fast graphics card that operates in the company of cores dedicated to ray tracing – somewhat more rudimentary than Tensor cores, yes – that should allow us to enable this function in most games even if it is not a the highest qualities. The benchmark that accompanies the news is focused on triple-A games with their graphics to the maximum and without the help of FidelityX Super Resolution (FSR) inviting players to get high refresh rate monitors.

I think AMD will have a difficult time conquering its rival due to the price difference that separates both cards, not counting the fact that it will be necessary to go to other assemblers to buy one and the models to overclock will undoubtedly have a price higher. On the other hand, those in red do not have the DLSS so deeply rooted in the Ampere family: graphics that, on the other hand, do benefit from AMD’s scaling.
