AMD’s Radeon RX 6600 will be the first RDNA 2 graphics card to ship with a reduced memory speed. This is according to a leaked GPU-Z screenshot shared by VideoCardz, which reveals that the non-XT version of the Radeon RX 6600 will only feature a memory speed of 14 Gbps. This is 2 Gbps lower than the Radeon RX 6600 XT and other Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics cards.

Per VideoCardz:

AMD Radeon RX 6600 will have lower frequencies compared to the XT variant. The card will ship with a game clock of 2044 MHz and a boost clock of 2491 MHz, a reduction of 319 and 98 MHz respectively from XT SKU. The graphics core frequency is not the only being limited on the non-XT variant. The card will also have limited memory bandwidth from 256 GB/s to 224 GB/s, which is a result of reduced memory speed from effective 16 Gbps to 14 Gbps. […]

The specs list 1750 MHz memory frequency which multiplied by 8 gives 14 Gbps.

First-party benchmarks for the Radeon RX 6600 that were recently leaked suggest that the card should perform similarly to NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3060 in Battlefield V, Resident Evil Village, and other hit titles in 1080p. AMD’s embargo for the Radeon RX 6600 is expected to lift this week.
