According to recent reports, Advanced Micro Devices will be introducing two more Navi 22 ‘RDNA 2’ graphics cards after the Radeon RX 6700 XT including the RX 6700, and RX 6600 XT. Though we don’t know what these cards will look like still, several rumors are floating around the internet. Sources claim that AMD may feature 12 GB GDDR6 VRAM across all three of its mainstream offerings.
Coming to the three cards listed, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 (Non-XT) variant would feature 6 GB GDDR6 VRAM which is half the amount featured on the RX 6700 XT. But an earlier leak states that it will feature a higher memory capacity than the RX 6700 of 12 GB.
Videocardz spotted the listing at EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission), which shows the listing of ASUS’s Radeon RX 6700 Phoenix Gaming graphics cards. There were two variants, one is a stock while the other is factory overclocked.
Both the cards feature 12 GB GDDR6 memory, but the previous listing claimed it to be 6 GB GDDR6 memory. The two models that have been listed are:
- ASUS PH-RX6700-12G (Phoenix Gaming Stock)
- ASUS PH-RX6700-12GO (Phoenix Gaming OC)
Though the Radeon RX 6700 has a cut-down GPU but will sport an increased memory size, which makes it a good 1080p and 1440p gaming solution. As we know, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 will be competing against the RTX 3060 12 GB while the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT will compete against the RTX 3060 Ti.
The RX 6700 XT will feature 2560 cores on its Navi 22 SKU, the RX 6700 (Non-XT) will also most likely feature a total of 2304 cores leaving the RX 6600 XT with either 2048 or 1792 stream processors.
It’s not just the EEC listings, the Gigabyte Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming OC 12 GB custom graphics card has also been listed at Amazon (Netherlands) for a price of 711.42 Euros (Includes VAT). But since AMD’s chips are currently scarce, the price of the GPU is extremely high.
The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT launches on the 18th of March so expect the rest of the variant to be released in the following months along with mobility RX 6000 series discrete GPUs.
