KEY POINTS

  • AMD is reportedly planning to release a new set of graphics chipsets
  • The said products could sell at a starting price of $299
  • AMD hasn't revealed anything about Radeon RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT

A recently uncovered listing bears that AMD is working on Navi 23 GPUs. These said graphics chipset reportedly in the pipeline indicate the chipmaker could soon launch RDNA 2 GPUs. The arrival of these graphics chips in the market could rival the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060.

An EEC listing submitted by ASRock reveals that the AMD Radeon RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT are in the works. Both models reportedly feature 8 GB of GDDR6 video memory, which matches the VRAM capacity of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. These specs align with what a recent post on the Chiphell forum claims.

According to the post, both the AMD Radeon RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT feature the Navi 23 GPU with 1, 792 and 2, 048 stream processors. This is 20% lesser than the 2,560 cores of the AMD RX 6700 XT. This hints at the possibility that the upcoming Navi 23 GPUs would likely be positioned for 1080p gaming instead of the QHD resolution.

According to the leak, the Radeon RX 6600 XT scores 9, 349 in 3DMark's Time Spy benchmark.

These figures are close to the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti's average score, which is 10,996. The same leaker who revealed these details on the Chihell forum also shared GPU-z screenshots of the AMD RX 6600 XT and the RX 6600. The images underline that the XT version of the rumored GPU features up to 2.7 GHz clocks.

Despite these impressive specs, the Radeon RX 6600 and the Radeon RX 6600 XT still struggle to match the Nvidia RTX 3060 when paired with DLSS. But, if AMD would equip the upcoming GPUs with the performance-boosting Fidelity FX Super Resolution technology, then maybe, AMD's upcoming graphics processors could compete, as per PCGamesN.

AMD has not yet confirmed the existence of the Radeon RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT. However, Wccftech speculates that the upcoming GPUs might be "positioned as a premium 1080p gaming solution." There are no official prices for the rumored graphics chipsets just yet.

The site claims that consumers could expect the upcoming cards to sell at a starting price of $299.
