It is no secret that in a few days we will have a new addition to the RX 6000 family, details of which have been leaking little by little in recent days, but the last one is the most important of all, since finally we have the full specifications of the AMD Radeon RX 6600 and its performance.
The current low-middle range of graphics cards, which is between 300 and 400 euros, is where the bulk of the PC gaming market focuses its purchases to update the PC, which is usually done every two generations. The goal of both NVIDIA and AMD is to convince those who want to replace their GTX 1060, Steam’s most popular card, with a newer, faster and more affordable GPU.
The bet of Jensen Huang’s company has been the RTX 3060 that has been with us for several months, but it is Christmas the key date and AMD does not want to be left behind with its proposal in the form of the Radeon RX 6600.
The latest thing that was leaked? Well, neither more nor less than the complete specifications of the RX 6600 as well as its performance.
Well yes, we finally have the complete specifications of the RX 6600, where the latest data is added to what we already knew in advance of the, for the moment, more modest of the AMD RX 6000 based on RDNA 2 architecture, which is based on the variant Navi 23 XL. At the same time it shares specifications with Navi 23 XT from where it also takes a bus from 128 bit for GDDR6 at 16 Gbps what gives 256 GB / s bandwidth with the 8GB of VRAM and 32MB of Infinity Cache, but unlike the XT model it has 28 active Compute Units.
But of course, we lacked details such as clock speed and apparently in Game mode the RX 6600 goes to 2044 MHz with a 2491 MHz boost, which in computing power places this Gaming GPU between the 7.3 TFLOPS of power and the 9 TFLOPS. All this makes it ideal for those who want to play triple A games in Full HD resolution, and its consumption is 28 W lower than the 6600 XT model XT, since it consumes 132 W.
In any case, given these specifications our question is: what will be the MSRP that AMD will give? Taking into account that the official RX 6600 XT is $ 380, the question is whether we are going to see it at a price of 299.99, a psychological barrier, or if it is going to move between 300 and 380.
The performance of the AMD RX 6600 has also been leaked
In addition to the information on the technical specifications, results of different benchmarks that have been made on the new AMD gaming graphics card have also been filtered. For instance in 3DMark’s Time Spy benchmark it gets 7085 score. We have seen results from the 6600 XT with 9898 points and the NVIDIA RTX 3060 with 8543 points in the same benchmark, so this should give us an idea about the performance of the new AMD graphics card and where it stands. price could be.
Of course, we cannot forget the ghost of mining, we already commented in a news story a few days ago that it has a 30 MH / s Ethereum mining capacity, but it’s no bigger than NVIDIA’s RTX 3060 LHR model, which is the one on the market right now, so we don’t expect its price to swell any further.
Now we just need Lisa Su to confirm these technical specifications and also officially show us the first custom models.
