AMD’s next Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics card, the Radeon RX 6600 XT, will reportedly launch next month. This is according to YouTubers Coreteks and Moores’ Law Is Dead, whose sources claim that the Radeon RX 6600 XT will debut in August for $399. The Radeon RX 6600 XT’s purported price has disappointed some users, as it’s only $80 less than the MSRP of the Radeon RX 6700 XT ($479). AMD’s Radeon RX 6600 XT is believed to perform similarly to the Radeon RX 5700 XT and NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 1080 Ti and feature 32 MB of Infinity Cache and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. The Radeon RX 6600 XT will also supposedly be available from third-party manufacturers only; there will be no reference model despite leaked renders alluding to the contrary.
[…] it seems quite interesting that both have shared the exact same rumor in a span of a few hours. It clearly shows that AMD’s internal pricing information is leaking. Judging from how accurate previous reporting by those YouTubers was, the information shouldn’t just be ignored, although the 399 USD price tag is a lot more than was expected. In fact, this is just 80 USD less than RX 6700XT’s MSRP.
