AMD announced the Radeon RX 6600 XT last week, a lower-ranged RDNA 2 graphics card with 2,048 Cores, 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, and a boost clock of 2,589 MHz that’s aimed at providing a high-frame-rate and high-fidelity 1080p gaming experience.

Despite its official street date of August 11, 2021, the Radeon RX 6600 XT has already shown up at Newegg courtesy of a third-party seller in China called AIO, which is selling the card for $1,099.99—a significant premium over AMD’s suggested price of $379.

MSI hasn’t clarified what the clock specifications are on its Radeon RX 6600 XT GAMING X yet, but the graphics card includes some of the manufacturer’s usual technologies such as the TWIN FROZR 8 cooling solution comprising dual fans.

MSI will have a total of four Radeon RX 6600 XT models on offer when the Radeon RX 6600 XT officially goes on sale this Wednesday.

The MSI AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT MECH 2X graphics card features the following:

  • TORX FAN 3.0 – The award-winning MSI TORX Fan 3.0 generates high static pressure and pushes the limits of thermal performance.
  • Zero Frozr – Zero Frozr is the calm before the storm, keeping fans still and quiet until cooling is needed.
  • Thermal Padding – An abundance of thermal pads provide additional pathways for heat transfer directly from the components.
