AMD Announces Radeon RX 6600 XT, Starting at USD 379

AMD has announced the latest entry in its current line of graphics cards, the Radeon RX 6600 XT. The new graphics card fills the lower end of the company’s current Radeon RX 6000 XT product stack, with partner models set to start at a price of USD 379.

“1080p has long been the most popular resolution for PC gaming, and in 2020 more than two-thirds of the gaming monitors shipped were at this resolution,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “However, the most popular older-generation 1080p graphics cards can struggle to even hit 60 FPS in modern games. The Radeon RX 6600 XT raises the bar for 1080p gaming. It was specifically designed to deliver the ultimate 1080p gaming experience for all gamers, offering powerhouse performance and advanced features to bring beautiful, complex and hyper-realistic worlds to life.”

The Radeon RX 6600 XT features the company’s RDNA 2 architecture and is designed for 1080p gaming. It features 32 Compute Units, 8GB of GDDR6 memory, a base clock of 2359MHz, a boost clock of 2589MHz, 32MB of AMD Infinity Cache, and AMD Smart Access Memory. It also supports other technologies and features including DirectX 12 Ultimate, AMD FidelityFX and FidelityFX Super Resolution, AMD Radeon Anti-Lag, and AMD Radeon Boost.

Partner models of the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT are expected to launch from brands such as ASRock, ASUS, BIOSTAR, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE, XFX and Yeston on August 11, 2021, at a starting SEP of USD 379.
