The new popular video card will begin its journey in stores this October - and now we have more details on the process
With the launch of theRadeon Equipped with a new Navi 6600 core last month, it was clear to everyone that more mid-range models based on the same hardware would still reach us - and now we seem to have the missing dates, with a detailed description of the features theRadeon Designed RX 6600.
According to a report on videocardz.com, the partner manufacturers of AMD Will be able to deliver samples of the new video card to visitors and other entities starting next week, with October 13 set as the date on which the information embargo will be removed and it will be possible to air reviews of the model and detail everything regarding its performance and branding. There is no information on the due date when consumers will be able to find these tickets on store shelves, but past experience suggests that this date could come about a week or two after the reviews are published - so a full launch of the RX 6600 during October sounds like a reasonable estimate.
Another leaked slide confirms to us the main points regarding the RX 6600 specification, with 28 active processing clusters out of 32 that exist in total in the Navi 23 cores (and all active on the RX 6600 XT), which together provide 1,792 processing units plus 32 Infinity Cache megabytes and 8 GB of memory GDDR6 as the default, without discounted sub-models with 4GB of memory Graphic is built to our delight. Based on the available data, it seems that the RX 6600 will be exactly the same in its capacity set as the RX 6600 XT, except for the same reduction in the available processing units - when based on the models based on the coresships 21 It is possible that the new model will also provide a more modest operating frequency, so that the principled performance difference between the pair could range from 12 percent to 15 percent.
Many have estimated that the RX 6600 XT will be launched with a recommended price tag of $ 350 in North America, but in practice it received a slight increase and was presented with a price of $ 370 - and accordingly it seems we can estimate a possible recommended price of between $ 300 and $ 320 for The RX 6600, which will have a good fit for the performance differences from the previous break.
It is quite clear that the direct competitor of the RX 6600 will be the GeForce RTX 3060 of NVIDIA Which is theoretically priced at $ 330, and if a little lucky AMD You can create for yourself the most popular ticket in the entire current generation - although we already know that often between the price in the field and the recommended recommended price in principle. We will continue to follow, and hope for positive surprises from the Red Camp.
