AMD will reportedly release its Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card on March 18. The date was shared by French hardware site Cowcotland, which noted that the midrange card would feature a Navi 22 GPU with 40 Compute Units and 2,560 Stream Processors. AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT will also leverage 12 GB of GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory bus, as well as 40 Ray Accelerators for high-performance, hardware-accelerated ray tracing.

“We learned this morning, via our network, that the new AMD RADEON RX 6700 XT graphics cards will be launched on March 18th,” Cowcotland wrote. “The RX 6700 XTs should normally offer a NAVI 22 XL GPU with 40 CU for 2560 SP. We should therefore also have 40 Ray Accelerators and the card will also be equipped with 12 GB of video memory, in GDDR6 with a 192-bit memory bus.”

Cowcotland had already reported that the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6700 would launch in March back in January, but enthusiasts who are interested in trying their luck at getting a midrange RDNA 2 graphics card now have a definitive date to mark on their calendars. Recent EEC filings by manufacturers such as ASRock and PowerColor suggest that AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 may only feature 6 GB of GDDR6 memory.
