AMD’s Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics card will feature a boot clock that’s around 9 to 10 percent higher than the Radeon RX 6600 XT.
This is according to a source with VideoCardz, who has revealed that the Radeon RX 6500 XT will feature a boost clock of 2,815 MHz and game clock of 2,610 MHz. In comparison, the Radeon RX 6600 XT features a boost clock and game clock of 2,589 MHz and 1,968 MHz, respectively.
“The RX 6500XT and RX 6400 will both feature Navi 24, a new GPU that is manufactured using TSMC N6 process technology,” VideoCardz noted in its report. “This is the first GPU to utilize this node and possibly the last Navi 2X GPU before AMD moves Navi 22/23 to 6nm at some point in the future.”
“AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT is to offer 1024 Stream Processors, up to 4GB GDDR6 memory across the 64-bit interface, and TDP at 107W. It will be the slowest desktop card to be offered by AMD board partners, with RX 6400 being an OEM-exclusive. As a side note, one of the spec sheets that we have seen mentions 18Gbps memory, while previous leaks suggested 16Gbps. A higher memory speed would increase the bandwidth to 144 GB/s.”
It’s believed that AMD will launch the Radeon RX 6500 XT on January 19. Red team will likely announce the budget graphics card during its news conference tomorrow at CES 2022.
