With its RDNA2 architecture, AMD is preparing to diversify its RX 6000 series, which has succeeded in being a successful alternative to Nvidia. A new card with Navi 22 GPU is on its way.
While the hardware world is struggling with stock shortages, manufacturers continue to work on entry-middle segment options.
RX 6700 XT
Navi 22 GPU cards, which emerged prior to the Big Navi promotion, have finally appeared on the horizon. Half the size of the RX 6900 XT powered by the Navi 21 XTX, it is expected to be supported by the RX 6700 XT 12GB 192-bit VRAM unit, which will rise above the Navi 22 XT with 2560 processing units.
On the other hand, in the RX 6700, which will take its place on the shelves with the Navi 22 XL as a cropped version of the RX 6700 XT, AMD will again force its rival to offer more competitive solutions in the entry-mid segment by not compromising the 12 GB 192-bit memory. The cards are expected to be introduced next March, while the Nvidia wing may detail the RTX 3060 12GB at CES 2021.
It seems that Nvidia is also working on an option of the RTX 3060 with 12 GB of VRAM. Finally, if we look at what has been known so far, the reference design RX 6700 is expected to include a cooler with 2 fans.
The card, which will be fed through 2 8-pin PCIe power connectors, will communicate with the system via the PCIe 4.0 interface.
