AMD formalizes the Radeon RX 6700 XT and puts forward some benchmarks

 

 


 

Official marketing from March 18 ... but probably not the slightest stock. Alas.

In the middle of last week, AMD was self-promoting and pointed to an important announcement released today. The American company has therefore kept its word and the announcement in question concerns the latest addition to the Radeon RX range, the new series of graphics cards from AMD.

 

 

Navi 22 XT and 12 GB of GDDR6


After the Radeon RX 6800/6800 XT on November 18 and the Radeon RX 6900 XT two weeks later, it will therefore have taken another three months to see AMD complete its new architecture with a more accessible model, a card more oriented towards the midrange.

As one would expect and in accordance with what announced the multiple rumors, the onboard GPU on the RX 6700 XT is a Navi 22 XT integrating 40 units of calculation. It has 12 GB of GDDR6 to support it and climbs up to 2424 MHz with a boost frequency of 2581 MHz.

 

 


 

AMD also emphasizes that the memory interface is on 192 bits before mentioning the 96 MB of Infinity Cache and a thermal envelope of 230 Watts maximum. Finally, and this is undoubtedly more important than all these figures, AMD insists on the relevance of its card for the 1440p.

 

 

In front of the RTX 3070 in 1440p?


The American has a heavy hand on the superlative side, specifying that his new card 'pushes the limits of video games by offering incredible 1440p performance and dazzling graphic fidelity'. A definition of image which allows 'settings pushed to the maximum and this [...] at very high refresh rate' in the words of Scott Herkelman.

 


 

 

The Corporate Vice President General Manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD then continues with several slides to illustrate his point. He does not hesitate to compare the Radeon RX 6700 XT to the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti of course, but also and above all to the RTX 3070… Two cards that it seems to beat in the vast majority of cases.

 

 


 



We obviously wait until we have the RX 6700 XT in our hands before we get excited, but it's promising. Unfortunately, the inevitable problem of availability remains when the card is due out on March 18 at an official price of $ 479 that we will probably not see very often.
