AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Confirmed to Feature 12 GB GDDR6 Memory

AMD is slowly preparing to launch its next-generation of mid-range graphics cards based on the RDNA 2 architecture. Following the launch of Navi 21 GPU SKUs, next in line comes the slower Navi 22 variant with fewer compute units (CU). Envisioned to compete against NVIDIA's GA104 and GA106 GPU SKUs, the Navi 22 based GPU is targeting 1440p gamers mainly. Today, thanks to Andreas Schilling from the German website HardwareLuxx, we got a few pieces of information regarding AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card. The source is claiming that we are getting this card sometime in the first half of this year, with the possibility to get it in Q1.

The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card is designed for 1440p gaming as mentioned, and its VRAM configuration is interesting. It features 12 GB of GDDR6 memory, which is more than enough for the types of workloads this card is meant for. The memory communicates using 192-bit bus. The Navi 22 GPU is configured for 40 CUs in total, with 2560 cores maximum. The Radeon RX 6700 XT features the Navi 22 XT variant with the fully enabled die, while its smaller brother Radeon RX 6700 is featuring Navi 22 XL die that has possibly fewer CUs and smaller TDP. The pricing of the upcoming cards is unknown.

AMD needs to sell worldwide their GPUs from their website and only 1 unit per customer at least until this craziness stops (maybe in 2 months from now?). Doing this will allow us buy on MSRP.

1440p gaming card for the price of 4K and availability of a HPC accelerator card.

That means 900eur in EU.

Nah... Here in Finland the cheapest RX 6800 is "only" 829EUR, so probably 600-650eur.. :laugh:

I'm already entertaining a gebneration skip. Been on the waiting list for a RX6800 for months and I'm not holding my breath. I was interested, perhaps, in the 6700xt but ray tracing performance not good enough imo. Yes, there is a pandemic but mostly this is due to scalpoing and miners best I can tell. Not too impressed with AMD or Nvidia here...

In Norway I found 6800 Nitro for 770 EUR but it is not available and God know if it will be ever available, the store will bump the price as always which means I'm getting a 6000 series card on Christmas. Yes, Christmas 2021 you got it right :) for $1k

I'm not sure why folks are hung up on ray tracing. It's more of a gimmick right now, not much fully supports in terms of games it and the hardware to utilize it is lackluster - even on Nvidia's side. They have dedicated RT cores and still need to make use of blurry DLSS to improve framerates enough where folks get the appearance that ray tracing is the bee's knees.

By the time ray tracing becomes a more prominent aspect of gaming, we're probably going to be another 2 or 3 generations down the road in terms of GPUs and anything from this generation will still suck with ray tracing.

I would like to get my hands on a current RX 6800 or RTX 3070, just so I have a better GPU than I do that can last me 4+ years like my 980Ti has....which is actually going on it's 6th year come June. I don't care about ray tracing and I dislike DLSS. I just want a new GPU. I'd even be interested in the 6700XT if it has a performance near the 3070 or 6800 and doesn't come in with a price that rakes your eyes so bad you want to run away from PC gaming forever.

Doesnt surprise me at all. Feels already insane that a high-end GPU costs the same as a good 1080p gaming PC.

Then this is the midrange 1440p card I am going to get. Assuming... it's at MSRP. $350-400?

That would be nice, but you've got more chance of the Pope delivering it to you personally.

LOL it could have 48GB and it won't make any difference, it will be unobtainable or cost $1K+ in Australia. AMD prices are a bigger joke than Nvidia's and supply is non-existent. So pathetic to see AMD ridicule Nvidia over their "paper launch" and how it would be very different with them.

I'm building a new system and had to buy a second hand 2080 Super and will have to buy a 3700X, can't get any AMD products and wasn't going to pay $1100 for a 3070. ETA for even for Ryzen 5000 series is 2-3 months and RX prices are laughable.

Can we preorder Zen 5 and RDNA 4, thought I'd get in early to have a chance of getting them.

Another piece of Tech we won't be able to get :banghead:

Thanks to (Greed) Miners / Scalpers ... did anyone check the newegg prices? 5700XT for 1400 USD :eek: RX 580 for 590 USD :kookoo:

If AMD clocks it high enough like 2300~2500 gaming boost, it could trade blows with the 3060 Ti even.

Hopefully.

There is really no point for buying anything. I check the sites daily and there is nothing there. Also they have the dates for deliveries posted and you will have to wait for some cards till July.
Crazy times but maybe that situation shows everyone to focus on something else than graphics cards.

I am not hung up on anything. I just like the way ray tracing looks. So I think you need an attitude adjustment?

I made no comment about your attitude and I couldn't care less about it.

All I said is that it just strikes me as odd that folks want ray tracing aspects in GPUs when both sides are awful at it in it's current state.

Flip on ray tracing for Nvidia, even with their RT cores that are supposed to handle it, the overall impact is still massive. Same goes for AMD's card.
Then Nvidia wants you to enable DLSS to help alleviate the loss of FPS while at the same time sacrificing image quality so they can boast how much better at ray tracing they are over AMD.....bleh, they can keep their blurry upscaling software.

That's why I say right now, ray tracing is rather a moot point (a gimmick right now in its infancy) to weigh your decision making process on a GPU from either side. Give it another couple of generations before ray tracing becomes more of the norm (more games supporting it and more efficient hardware/software to render it). 2 or 3 generations from now is when the hardware and software for ray tracing will really start to solidify and that's when you should be concerned about how well a GPU make/model handles ray tracing.
