Chipmaker AMD has announced the launch of the Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card for gamers who want to game at high refresh rates with support for up to 1080p resolution. The Radeon RX 6600 XT comes at a suggested MSRP of $379 (about Rs. 28,275 excluding taxes). The pricing looks like it could go higher only, with the third-party customisations in the card. The graphics card would be rolled out globally on August 11. The India pricing for the graphics card is yet to be revealed by the individual manufacturers.
With the Radeon RX 6600 XT, AMD is aiming for the segment of gamers which is most probably the biggest, comprising of the ones who play on Full HD displays, as displays that come with a resolution higher than 1080p jack up the price for the display units both individually and when purchased as a part of a system. AMD claims the new card will give 15% performance improvement over Nvidia‘s RTX 3060 12GB at 1080p. As per AMD, the performance of the Radeon RX 6600 XT should fall somewhere between RTX 3060 and RTX 3060 Ti.
The Radeon RX 6600 XT is based on RDNA2 architecture and comes with a game clock of 2,359MHz and 32MB Infinity Cache. It has 2048 streaming processors or 32 Compute Units (CUs). The chipmaker has also added 32 Ray Accelerators. The Radeon 6600 XT comes equipped with 8GB of onboard GDDR6 memory. Some of the other features the card comes with are Radeon Boost, Radeon Anti-Lag, FidelityFX Super Resolution, Smart Memory Access, etc.
