Looking for an absolute 1080p gaming monster? AMD has just announced its next budget card which proved to be a 1080p gaming champion and will finally be available from today on shelves. The card will be exclusively sold by OEMs and so there will be no reference design and also you have the Indian pricing revealed!
It is designed to deliver the ultimate high-framerate, high-fidelity and highly responsive 1080p gaming experience, as 2/3 of the gamers still play games at 1080p.
Built to keep the AMD RDNA™ 2 architecture at heart, the new Radeon RX 6600 XT offers 32 MB of high-performance AMD Infinity Cache, 8 GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory, AMD Smart Access Memory and other advanced features. It also supports the new cutting-edge AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution, an open-source spatial upscaling solution, which is designed to boost framerates and deliver high-quality, high-resolution gaming experiences.
This GPU, as per the release of the reviews yesterday, sits just between the RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti in terms of raw performance. AMD even claims that this new GPU delivers up to 15% higher performance on average with max settings across select AAA titles than the NVIDIA RTX 3060.
It also provides 125 FPS on average across a wide range of modern AAA titles, pushing the boundaries of mainstream gaming by enabling incredible, high-refresh-rate 1080p performance and breathtaking visual fidelity.
It is great to see AMD retaining 8GB of GDDR6 memory on the card and also boasting high clock speeds to make up the 32 compute units used in this card. While having a 160W TDP makes the GPU efficient as well and also possess a 32 MB infinity cache.
AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics cards are expected to be available from AMD board partners including ASRock, ASUS, BIOSTAR, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE, XFX and Yeston at global etailers/retailers from today.
In India, the GPU will have a starting price of INR 31,990 + 18 % GST = INR 37,748, and considering the GPU shortage, it will not be available less than Rs.50k in India.
