AMD will reportedly announce the Radeon RX 6700 XT and nothing else during its upcoming “Where Gaming Begins” event slated for March 3. The rumor comes from French hardware site Cowcotland, which claims that red team had intended to unveil the standard Radeon RX 6700 on March 15 but decided to keep it under wraps for a little longer. Cowcotland also noted that the reference and custom variants of the Radeon RX 6700 XT would be available on March 18 in “very limited quantities.”

“We have some new information on AMD’s announcement on March 3,” Cowcotland reported. “Only the RX 6700 XT will be announced. There was indeed an RX 6700 in the red program for March 15th, but it has been canceled (for now) and so we will only have the RX 6700 XT which will be commercially available on March 18th. Reference MBA cards and Customs cards will arrive on the same date, but again in very limited quantities.”

“For the reference cards there should be only a hundred cards available, all brands combined, and not one more, because it will go directly to EOL. For partner cards, so Custom models, we are also talking about a hundred pieces at launch, so availability will be extremely limited.”

Cowcotland’s suggestion that there will only be around 200 Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards available seems specific to France, but we suspect that the highly anticipated GPU could be similarly scarce in the U.S. and other regions. AMD is set to unveil the Radeon RX 6700 XT during its Where Gaming Begins event at 11 a.m. (EDT).
