In recent days, AMD is pleased to we teaser evoking RDNA 3 graphics architecture that must succeed RDNA 2. Still, for a little while, it will be the only – less rather than more – to be available. Is it worth a small entry level?
PCIe 4.0 in x8
Last September, while NVIDIA paraded with the GeForce RTX 3000 series, AMD had to respond. He then announced the Radeon RX 6000 series with, first of all, the 6800 and 6800 XT whose effective release took place in mid-November.
Subsequently, other versions were released – the RX 6900 XT then the RX 6700 XT – each time with the same availability problem, perhaps even more glaring than with the GeForce competitors. Optimists that we are, so hopefully things will be (at least a little) different with the two news stories.
Mentioned for a little while, the Radeon RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT allow AMD to go down a bit further. These are cards based on the NAVI 23 GPU engraved in 7 nm. Be careful, if PCIe 4.0 remains in place, the cards will only be wired in x8.
We learn that the RX 6600 will be equipped with 1792 stream processors and 28 ray accelerators while its 8 GB of GDDR6 will be on 128-bit bus. The RX 6600 XT will logically be more powerful: we are talking about 2,048 stream processors, 32 ray accelerators , but still 8 GB of GDDR6 on a 128-bit bus.
As for frequencies, nothing has yet filtered out on the RX 6600, but the RX 6600 XT could see its GPU running at 1689/2679 MHz with memory at 2000 MHz. Information was still questionable, however.
