AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT: All You Need to Know

AMD today announced the Radeon RX 6700 XT, its fourth RX 6000 series graphics card based on the RDNA2 graphics architecture. The card debuts the new 7 nm "Navi 22" silicon, which is physically smaller than the "Navi 21" powering the RX 6800/RX 6900 series. The RX 6700 XT maxes out "Navi 22," featuring 40 RDNA2 compute units, amounting to 2,560 stream processors. These are run at a maximum Game Clock frequency of 2424 MHz, a significant clock speed uplift over the previous-gen. The card comes with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. The card uses 16 Gbps GDDR6 memory chips, so the memory bandwidth works out to 384 GB/s. The chip packs 96 MB of Infinity Cache on-die memory, which works to accelerate the memory sub-system. AMD is targeting a typical board power metric of 230 W. The power input configuration for the reference-design RX 6700 XT board is 8-pin + 6-pin.

AMD is marketing the RX 6700 XT as a predominantly 1440p gaming card, positioned a notch below the RX 6800. The company makes some staggering performance claims. Compared to the previous-generation the RX 6700 XT is shown beating the GeForce RTX 2080 Super. NVIDIA marketed the current-gen RTX 3060 Ti as having the same performance outlook. Things get interesting, where AMD shows that in select games, the RX 6700 XT can even beat the RTX 3070, a card NVIDIA marketed as matching its previous-gen flagship, the RTX 2080 Ti. AMD is pricing the Radeon RX 6700 XT at USD $479 (MSRP), which is very likely to be bovine defecation, given the prevailing market situation. The company announced a simultaneous launch of its reference-design and AIB custom-design boards, starting March 18, 2021.
AMD's performance claims follow.

my guess is these will cost about 700+ CAD and may not reach their MSRP until the launch of the 7000 series :(

"The company makes some staggering performance claims. Compared to the previous-generation the RX 6700 XT is shown beating the GeForce RTX 2080 Super."

The card doesn't exist; why not have a Billy Mays type (RIP) come out and say "it slices and dices, safe on color fabrics, and if order one now we won't send you a second one free even if you pay shipping and handling. Operators are not standing by!"

Our dutch hardware info website claims the yields of the 6700XT are extremely good, so good they will not launch a 6700 soon because they barely have any sub optimal outcomes. They also claim these cards will be available in significantly higher volumes then other cards. But with the current market and mining craze you dont know if it will be enough to overcome the scalpers and really make a dent in the current shortage of latest gen cards.

IMO 230W is too much for my tastes on a 335 mm2 die.

I'm interested in seeing how well this performs at 150W. If it can run north of 2GHz whilst sipping power, I'll buy one - assuming I can actually buy one.

All puzzle pieces are finally coming together. Got 3800X in a trade, got Smart Memory Access support for my board, now I can sell my RTX2060S for double-profit and chill 'till next christmas on my backup 1070. Would be nice to have GB to re-enable PCIe 4.0 support on my x470 Aorus Ultra....

Probably more. RX 6800 was supposed to be about the same price, not much more, than 3070. Ended up costing almost $200 average more than a 3070 here in Canada.

Assuming I could get one of these close(ish) to MSRP, would this be any kind of upgrade to a 1080ti? If I could get one around MSRP, then I could likely sell the 1080ti for about the same price. Just don’t know if it would be worth all the effort... I’m debating if I should just wait for the next round of future GPUs in 6-12 months given the current pricing disaster.

Opinions?

If you can get one, and at the mentioned MSRP, then it would be good. But yeah, it would be better than 1080ti. If it matches around 3070 performance, then yeah, good jump.

The fact that AMD claims pit this against the RTX 3070 is astonishing. That basically means in raw power everything AMD has to offer beats out Nvidia at better prices up until the RTX 3080

So once the RX 6700 drops voice to reason it would be faster than the RTX 3060 Ti

This is a very interesting Generation for PC Gamers.

Haha you got that right and made me lol more than if you used the shorter more vulgar word that means the same thing. Good job :)

I bet performance figures are with SAM. Marketing stuff :P
AMD already announced SAM coming to Ryzen 3000.
We'll see if Nvidia will push its schedule forward, they initially said late March.

AMD has surely lost any remnants of conscience. A 192bit wide GPU for a nice price of $500.

OMFG.

This world has gone crazy. Competition? Customers first? Modest margins? Never heard of it!

AMD is the new Apple. It became obvious when they announced the pricing for the Ryzen 5000 series.

Edit: to be honest the entire consumer graphics market has gone crazy. If you want to game you'd be better off buying a console. Performance/price for AMD has barely moved vs the RDNA1 generation which is just bonkers. We used to pay the same to get a lot more performance but not in today's market.

Well, yes, I suppose we will see the RTX3070Ti announced soon. Not that I am optimistic that one would actually be able to buy one, never mind the RX6700.

Not really on AMD's side. The Radeon VII is still more profitable than any of the RDNA2 cards, apparently.

Before Apple, there is Intel for CPUs and nVidia for GPUs that milked PC owners for a decade now. AMD hasn't surpassed the $1000 mark for the desktop CPU or GPU segment yet, while nVidia did so with 2080Ti and 3090. And Intel had kept 6 cores for their workstation CPUs that cost over a 1K also. So, until AMD becomes so greedy as those 2 companies keep you horses...

40CU/2560SP up to 2424Mhz on 251 mm2 die for $479??? That's Polaris sized GPU for God sake!
It'll be 12,4 TFlops at best... so 25% faster than 5700XT for 20% higher MSRP and 50% higher AIB prices. 5% added value in best case scenario and 45% price to performance regression in reality. AMD go eat Sh/t you've become worse than Ngreedia!

To paraphrase the infamous Greek philosopher Kayne Westodoulopoulos; AMD & Nvidia don't care about PC gamers, they only care about their stock price

Where did you get Navi22 being 251mm2 from? That is the size of the 5700XT (Navi 12). Navi 22 is apparently 334mm2 (Navi 21 aka 6800/6900 is 520mm2). It is also on a much more expensive process than Polaris (7nm versus 12nm) so the die cost is likely double that of Polaris.

TSMC stopped giving volume discounts, for starters. And newer nodes are more expensive than older ones.

On that, some analysts believe the wafer cost for 7nm is more than double the cost for 16/12 nm.
