AMD these days introduced the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card. The 6700 XT is in accordance with the similar RDNA2 structure as the opposite RX 6000-series graphics playing cards however it’s the least expensive type within the collection thus far, beginning at $479.
The 6700 XT has a brand new, smaller GPU than the only at the different 3 6000-series playing cards. This GPU has 40 compute gadgets, 64 ROPs, 160 texture gadgets, and 2560 movement processors.
One of the vital attention-grabbing issues concerning the 6700 XT is the competitive clock velocity; the typical clock velocity underneath load or ‘Sport Frequency’ as AMD likes to name this can be a moderately prime 2424MHz. This offers it compute efficiency of 12.41 TFLOPs, which is helping it shut the space on paper with the $100 dearer and quite decrease clocked RX 6800. After all, precise sport efficiency is dependent upon many different components.
At the reminiscence facet, the 6700 XT has 12GB of GDDR6 of unknown velocity with a 192-bit reminiscence interface and as much as 384GB/s of bandwidth. AMD has decreased the Infinity Cache measurement to 96MB in this type.
On the subject of connectivity, the 6700 XT has 3 DisplayPort 1.4 ports with DSC and a unmarried HDMI 2.1. The reference card calls for usual 8+6 pins of energy and the cardboard has a standard board energy of 230W.
AMD supplied some tough approximations of the cardboard’s efficiency right through its release keynote. In a single chart, the 6700 XT used to be proven handily beating previous playing cards such because the NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti and RTX 2080 Tremendous. In some other, it used to be proven buying and selling blows with the $399 RTX 3060 Ti and the $499 RTX 3070. We will be able to need to look ahead to unbiased third-party opinions to verify the efficiency and in addition supply additional information issues.
The $479 pricing places the 6700 XT in an enchanting place. The RTX 3070 turns out like the principle rival however may also trap some RTX 3060 Ti patrons to spend additional for the doubtless upper rasterization efficiency. After all, AMD’s ray tracing efficiency remains to be missing and AMD used to be cautious to not display any ray tracing benchmarks as soon as once more. The corporate additionally failed to turn any choice to NVIDIA’s DLSS era, which will have to additional distance the 6700 XT from the RTX playing cards in ray traced programs.
After all, the true worry these days could be discovering the playing cards in inventory when the 6700 XT is going on sale on March 18. The 6700 XT will probably be to be had as a two-slot, dual-fan reference card immediately from AMD and in addition as spouse fashions from the likes of ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE and XFX. Sadly, it is tough to consider issues getting higher stock-wise for this release, as has been the case for the entirety the previous six months.
