AMD confirmed that it would officially unveil Radeon RX 6000 graphics card series March 3. Would it be Radeon RX 6700 XT? The RDNA Navi 22 GPU-based graphics card is reportedly the company's bet to challenge the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.

On its official Twitter account, AMD announced that it will unveil its Radeon RX 6000 graphics card series at the Where Gaming Begins event on 11 a.m. ET of March 3. The company does not specify which particular model of the series would be unveiled. However, industry watchers are certain that it would be the much-awaited Radeon RX 6700 XT since it is the next SKU in line.

According to Wccftech, AMD is aiming to release the Radeon RX 6700 XT to challenge the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, which is available for only $399. AMD shared a reference card render, suggesting that the upcoming graphics card could share some of the designs of its siblings like the RX 6900 XT, RX 6800 XT and the RX 6800. However, the upcoming graphics card is a lot smaller and features a smaller cooling system sporting a dual-slot and dual fans design.

Moreover, the Radeon RX 6700 XT appears to have three display ports and one HDMI connection. Interestingly, it does not seem to have a USB-type C port, which is present on the current Big Navi GPUs.

It is also rumored to house a 12 GB GDDR6 memory with a 192-bit bus interface. Moreover, the Radeon RX 6700 XT apparently features 16 Gbps dies that could deliver a total bandwidth of 384 GB/s. Rumors have it that the graphics card will be available in two variants. These are the premium model with a TGP of up to 230W and a lower-tier variant with a TGP of 189W.

As for its release date, French outlet Cowcotland claimed a few days ago that its sources revealed the release date of the upcoming graphics card from AMD. The mainstream NAVI 22 GPU-based graphics card would reportedly go on sale March 18 this year. In terms of stocks, "we have already been told that the quantities will be more than very limited," the report claimed.
