There’s no summer break for AMD, which continues to strengthen its catalogue of Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards. The company is bringing its GPU to the entry-level with the Radeon RX 6600 XT, which is aimed at Full HD.

After the high-end with the Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800 released at the end of 2020, then the mid-range with the Radeon RX 6700 XT in March 2021, AMD positions its RDNA2 graphics architecture on the entry level with the Radeon RX 6600 XT. A graphics card whose ambition is to deliver a good gaming experience to gamers with Full HD monitors.

The configuration is obviously modest with 2048 compute units and 32 MB, but AMD has the good taste to not skimp on the amount of graphics memory. We find 8 GB of GDDR6, presumably on a 128-bit interface. AMD isn’t very talkative about the rest of the specs; all we know is that the average power consumption is 160W and that the average expected frequency in games is 2359MHz – yes, AMD is specific.

This new graphics card will go head to head with Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060. Obviously, AMD is serene and claims to outperform its competitor more or less easily. However, this should only be true for games that are run in a conventional manner. Those with raytracing should probably give the advantage back to the RTX 3060.

The Radeon RX 6600 XT will give us its last secrets as soon as we can test it, which is in the next few days. Finally, no indication was given on the recommended price – a sum that will certainly be decoThe price of a product is not always the same as the price displayed in the shop, as the shortage of components is still far from being resolved.
