AMD will blow up another bomb in the graphics card market! The launch date for the Radeon RX 6000 Series has been officially announced!
Last year AMD introduced the latest RDNA2 cards, the Radeon RX 6900 XT ($ 1,000), RX 6800 XT ($ 650) and RX 6800 ($ 580). Now the company is preparing to launch several new Radeon RX 6000 series GPUs. The “Game Begins: Episode 3” event will take place on March 3, for company promotion. (Episode 1 brought desktop Ryzen 5000 CPUs, Chapter 2 was the launch of the RX 6800).
AMD tweeted the image of the GPU in question. Like high-end cards, it has two fans instead of three. But still, the card model looks pretty muscular. This image shows we’re looking at the Radeon RX 6700. We’ll likely see again a standard and an XT variation based on the Navi 22 chips. They will be prepared for sale according to Nvidia’s mid-range models.
On March 3rd, the journey continues for #RDNA2. Join us at 11AM US Eastern as we reveal the latest addition to the @AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics family. https://t.co/5CFvT9D2SR pic.twitter.com/tUpUwRfpgk

The GeForce RTX 3060 ($ 330) will be available shortly, but things can be tough for AMD given the supply issues that are causing the tech world to become monopolized. This is also the case with the RTX 3060 Ti ($ 400), which seems extinct in most places (and is listed well above the MSRP).
The Game Begins: The Episode 3 event will kick off on March 3 at 16:00 UTC and will likely be a pre-registration presentation like the previous episodes.
