Leaker @KOMACHI_ENSAKA has discovered an EEC filing for ASRock Radeon RX 6600 XT and RX 6600 graphics cards. It appears that they will feature 8 GB of VRAM, which implies that they are aimed at 1080p and 1440p gaming. It was previously rumored that the Radeon RX 6600 would feature 12 GB of VRAM; there could be multiple variants for this model. AMD may announce these GPUs at Computex 2021.
[EEC] ASRock RX6600XT PGD 8GO, RX6600XT CLP 8GO, RX6600XT CLD 8GO, RX6600XT CLI 8G, RX6600 CLD 8GO, RX6600 CLI 8G https://t.co/FTnpSVGKXr pic.twitter.com/eHq58mRj9T— 遠坂小町@Komachi (@KOMACHI_ENSAKA) May 11, 2021
Depending on where the Radeon RX 6600 XT sits on AMD’s product stack, it could compete with Nvidia’s RTX 3050 Ti or RTX 3060. That said, if AMD positions its 8GB Radeon RX 6600 XT against Nvidia’s 12GB RTX 3060, they will be shooting themselves in the foot by allowing their existing RX 6000 series marketing claims to be used against them.
