AMD this day announced the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card. The 6700 XT is in step with the identical RDNA2 structure as the other RX 6000-series graphics cards then all but again it is the most cost-effective mannequin in the series to this level, starting at $479.
The 6700 XT has a brand recent, smaller GPU than the one on the other three 6000-series cards. This GPU has 40 compute items, 64 ROPs, 160 texture items, and 2560 circulation processors.
One of the sharp issues about the 6700 XT is the aggressive clock speed; the reasonable clock speed below load or ‘Game Frequency’ as AMD likes to call it is a rather excessive 2424MHz. This affords it compute performance of 12.41 TFLOPs, which helps it shut the hole on paper with the $100 more pricey and comparatively decrease clocked RX 6800. For sure, accurate recreation performance will depend on many other components.
On the memory side, the 6700 XT has 12GB of GDDR6 of unknown speed with a 192-bit memory interface and up to 384GB/s of bandwidth. AMD has reduced the Infinity Cache size to 96MB on this mannequin.
By the bid of connectivity, the 6700 XT has three DisplayPort 1.4 ports with DSC and a single HDMI 2.1. The reference card requires fashioned 8+6 pins of energy and the card has a each day board energy of 230W.
AMD provided some tough approximations of the card’s performance at some stage in its open keynote. In a single chart, the 6700 XT turned into shown handily beating primitive cards reminiscent of the NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti and RTX 2080 Perfect. In another, it turned into shown trading blows with the $399 RTX 3060 Ti and the $499 RTX 3070. We can must inspire for self sustaining third-occasion opinions to confirm the performance and furthermore present further info components.
The $479 pricing puts the 6700 XT in an enticing build apart. The RTX 3070 appears to be like like the main rival but will furthermore entice some RTX 3060 Ti buyers to bid extra for the potentially elevated rasterization performance. For sure, AMD’s ray tracing performance is aloof missing and AMD turned into cautious now now not to hide any ray tracing benchmarks another time. The company furthermore failed to hide any different to NVIDIA’s DLSS technology, which will must further distance the 6700 XT from the RTX cards in ray traced applications.
For sure, the right grief this day might per chance perhaps be discovering the cards in inventory when the 6700 XT goes on sale on March 18. The 6700 XT will almost definitely be available as a two-slot, dual-fan reference card straight away from AMD and furthermore as partner fashions from the likes of ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE and XFX. Sadly, it be piquant to factor in issues getting higher inventory-brilliant for this open, as has been the case for all the issues the previous six months.
