AMD will be announcing its next round of Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards on March 3. The company revealed the news in a tweet published this afternoon, which noted that the GPUs would be shown off during its next “Where Gaming Begins” event. Red team did not specify what new RDNA 2 models gamers and other enthusiasts will be feasting their eyes on, but the Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6700 appear to be the most likely candidates.
“On March 3rd, the journey continues for #RDNA2,” the tweet from AMD reads. “Join us at 11AM US Eastern as we reveal the latest addition to the @AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics family.” A similar blurb on AMD’s official Where Gaming Begins site points out that the announcement will involve a high-performance graphics card.

Leveraging the Navi 22 GPU, this graphics card is expected to feature 40 Compute Units, 2,560 Streaming Processors, 12 GB of GDDR6 memory, and a TGP of somewhere between 230 and 189 watts.
