It’s no secret that AMD is preparing additional Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards aimed at the more mainstream and casual markets. These would include the Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6700, which Hardwareluxx editor Andreas Schilling teased in a new tweet this morning. According to Schilling, these mid-range RDNA 2 models will, perhaps unsurprisingly, target gamers who are content with a 1440p gaming experience. The GPUs are also said to boast 12 GB of GDDR6 memory.
Previous leaks have suggested that the Radeon RX 6700 XT will feature 40 Compute Units, 2,560 Stream Processors, a 192-bit memory bus, and a TGP of around 185 to 210 watts. Specifications for the Radeon RX 6700 are more of a mystery, but it should be safe to assume that it’ll feature a significantly lower TGP and weaker performance configuration.
AMD revealed that it would be releasing its Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6700 graphics cards in the first half of 2021 during this year’s all-virtual CES 2021. Schilling echoed that period of availability in his tweet, hoping that it might be released sooner in Q1.
Soon™ – sometime in H1 2021 or is it Q1? 🤷🏼♂️— Andreas Schilling (@aschilling) January 30, 2021
