AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Announced, Costs US$479
AMD has announced the 1440p-targetting AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, which features 12GB of GDDR6 memory and 96MB of AMD Infinity Cache.
As one would expect from a 6000 series card, the RX 6700 XT is based on AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture and includes features like AMD Smart Access Memory (which will soon be compatible with Ryzen 3000 chips and not just Ryzen 5000 ones) and ray-tracing.
The card has 40 compute units and a 192-bit memory interface, along with a base gaming clock speed of up to 2,424MHz, a boost clock speed of up to 2,581MHz, and a 230W TBP. For comparison, the RX 6800 has 60 compute units, a 256-bit memory interface, a base gaming clock speed of up to 1,815MHz, a boost clock speed of up to 2,105MHz, 16GB of memory, 128MB of Infinity Cache, and a 250W TBP.
AMD says that over 40 system builders and OEMs “are expected to launch high-performance desktop PCs” with the card, including refreshed versions of HP’s OMEN 25L and 30L. The company also announced a collaboration with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports Team, with the latter to make use of RX 6000 Series cards and Ryzen 5000 Series processors for their esports rigs.
The RX 6700 XT will have an SEP of US$479 (~RM1,943), which is US$100 lower than the RX 6800’s US$579 (~RM2,348) SEP. It’s also a bit lower than the starting price of NVIDIA’s RTX 3070 (RM2,399). The card will be out on March 18.
