AMD has unveiled the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card, which will be a direct competitor to Nvidia’s RTX 3070. The price of this graphics card is $ 479.
AMD today unveiled its latest hardware achievement, the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card. This graphics card uses the RDNA2 architecture that is common to all RX 6000 series graphics cards. This model is also the cheapest 6000 series model that will enter the market with a price of $ 479.
Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card
The RX 6700 now has a smaller GPU than other models in this family. This GPU has 40 processing units, 64 ROP units with 65 tissue units and 2560 distribution processors.
One of the most interesting details of this graphics card is its amazing clock speed. According to the manufacturer, the maximum clock speed of this graphics card under load, which is known as “Game Frequency”, will be beyond 2424MHz. This means a computing performance of 12.41 teraflops, which helps reduce the performance gap with the $ 100 more expensive 6800 graphics card. Of course, you should not forget that the performance of the card in the game depends on other factors.
In terms of memory, this graphics card has 12GB of GDDR6 memory with unspecified speed and 192bit memory interface and a maximum bandwidth of up to 384GB / s. AMD has also reduced the Infinity Cache size to 96MB on this model.
In terms of communications, AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT has three DisplayPort 1.4 ports with DSC and one HDMI 2.1 port. The reference card requires the 6 + 8 pin power standard, and the card itself has a standard 230W power board.
AMD also showed performance charts when it unveiled the graphics card. For example, one of these charts shows that the RX 66700 XT can beat many of the older powerful graphics cards, such as the NVIDIA GTX 1070 Ti or the RTX 2080 Super. In another chart, the company claims that the cheapest 6000XT series graphics card outperforms the $ 399 and $ 499 RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070.
This graphics card is in a good position with its price of $ 479. Its main competitor is the RTX 3070 graphics card from Endivia. But at the same time, users who are looking to buy the RTX 3060 Ti can also buy it for a few dollars more.
Of course, it should not be forgotten that the performance of Ray Tracing graphics cards of Imedi has always been one step behind Nvidia. Maybe that’s why the company is never interested in releasing Ray Tracing benchmarks for its graphics cards. The company has so far failed to provide a technology similar to Nvidia’s DLSS technology.
AMD plans to launch the graphics card in late March in partnership with business partners including ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE and XFX.
