The first photo may have appeared for the Navi 23-based AMD RX 6600 XT.
It is known that new Navi 23 GPU-based graphics cards are planned by AMD. The first photo of the cards, which are expected to be the RX 6600 XT and RX 6600, seems to have emerged.
While the real source of the image was lost, a user named Broly_X1 on Twitter managed to capture the image. Videocardz reports that the picture shows a reference design for an AMD Radeon GPU. It goes without saying that the design pictured is not compatible with existing RDNA 2 reference coolers.
There is a label on the card that mentions PC Partner Ltd., one of the video card OEMs. The company deals with both NVIDIA and AMD GPUs and is probably best known for producing GPUs for the Sapphire and Zotac brands.

The tag also notes the GPU Navi 23 chip, which will be a truncated version of RDNA 2 chips currently on the market. The RX 6600 XT is expected to have 2,048 and 1,792 cores for the RX 6600. In addition, the card has 8GB of GDDR6 memory, as the latest rumors suggest.
Still, their appearance on the label is considered a bit odd. Usually we would see a specific video card model listed here. Perhaps it is thought that this is reflected in the label as a pre-production example or something completely different. Of course, the possibility that the card in the picture is completely fake should not be ruled out.
AMD is hosting a keynote at Computex in early June, and E3 is coming shortly after that. In this sense, we can look forward to the possibility of new graphics cards to be announced here.
