AMD did launch its Navi 23 GPU for mobile at Computex weeks ago, and now it seems they are likely to launch the desktop graphics card based on the new RDNA2 architecture. Though the Red team promised to launch many GPUs in 2021, they have only launched the Radeon RX 6700 XT and RX 6900 XT LC.
Also, it was supposed that AMD could make an announcement of a single-fan GPU in 2021, which directly points to an RX 6600 GPU series model. Already, we spotted multiple custom Radeon RX 6600 XT GPUs submitted by Gigabyte to EEC, and now the latest drivers from AMD did mention these upcoming GPUs.
Discovered by @KOMACHI_ENSAKA, the latest graphics driver clearly supports both the new RX 6000M mobile GPUs as well as the new RX 6600 series desktop GPUs. This points that AMD will launch both of these GPUs at the same time anytime soon.
Apart from sporting the Navi 23 GPU, the Radeon RX 6600 XT will feature 8GB GDDR6 memory while the specs of the non-XT variant are not yet confirmed, but it would probably sport either 4GB or 8GB of GDDR6 memory.
The AMD Navi 23 GPU sports up to 2048 Stream Processors and offers a 128-bit memory bus, the same used on Tesla’s new infotainment system for updated Model S.
So, a full-fledged Navi 23 GPU could deliver around 10 TFLOPs of single-precision compute power requiring only 100 Watts of power, and you could expect a strong performance from the RX 6600 series family. However, the interesting thing will be to see how AMD prices them and how much they could supply to gamers.
