AMD confirmed at CES 2021 that they would introduce more mainstream RDNA 2 graphics cards including the Radeon RX 6700 XT in the first half of this year.
In the official presentation, AMD said it would have more desktop and mobility GPUs based on the RDNA 2 architecture release this year. According to the previous leaks, AMD could introduce more mainstream options below the $500 US segment.
Some sources suggest that the Radeon RX 6700 GPU will offer a 12 GB GDDR6 memory capacity and an expected 192-bit bus interface. The graphics will offer a 1440p gaming card while the higher-end Navi 21 products are 4K cards.

The graphics card will feature a memory buffer of 12 GB GDDR6 along with a 192-bit bus interface.
Dual slot cooling solution of AMD Radeon RX 6700 series
Coming to the design, the dual-slot card looks much similar to the triple-slot offering. The shroud is specifically designed for the AMD Radeon RX 6700 series cards. This card contains a dual axial-tech fan design, and it has the “R” logo on both the fans and in the middle, representing its brand.
It also has a large cut out which helps to vent out the heat from the aluminium heatsink. It has 8-pin power connectors on the card, but it is possible that we could see 8+6 or more power optimized variants. The card has a dual-slot form factor and should also feature a similar I/O as the Big Navi graphics card.
