The AMD Radeon RX 6600 is another mid-range graphics card from Reds, which will rival the competing GeForce RTX 3060. However, it’s hard to expect a revolutionary performance or attractive price tag from it. After all, there is already a more powerful model on the market with the Note XT, which has not turned out to be better than the cheapest Ampere chips. So we hope we’ll get a slightly slower unit at a much lower price, but the recent performance leaks of the new AMD graphics card aren’t optimistic at all. The Radeon RX 6600 in the popular 3DMark Time Spy test turned out to be worse than the popular unit in the competition. She is from the last generation…
The AMD Radeon RX 6600 performed in the 3DMark Time Spy test worse not only than the GeForce RTX 3060, but even the RTX 2060 SUPER. Remember, however, that these are just early leaks – the upcoming red chip can work with slower timings or with drivers not developed in an early release.
XFX, ASRock, PowerColor Radeon RX 6600 – This is what the new graphics cards look like. Premiere on October 13th
According to the information so far, the upcoming red card is based on the Navi 23 GPU with 1792 stream processors (the same is the Radeon RX 6600M mobile). The chip will be equipped with a maximum of 8 GB of GDDR6 memory and 32 MB of Infinity Cache. For the XT variant, we’re expecting lower clock speeds (up to 2491MHz), slower memory (14Gb/s) and a lower TDP (132W). However, we didn’t expect that the savings mentioned in the specs would have such a big impact on the 3DMark Time Spy Graphics test result, as the Radeon turned out to be just 8,155 points.
AMD Radeon RX 6600 – Graphics Card Final Specifications and Performance Comparison with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060
For comparison, it is worth comparing this result with the achievements of the GeForce RTX 3060 or even the older GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER model. It turns out that both NVIDIA cards easily exceed 8400 points, while the Radeon RX 6600 XT in non-reference versions clearly exceeds the 9500 points limit. Remember, however, that these are just early leaks – the upcoming red chip could work with slower timing or with drivers not developed in an early release. Another thing is that synthetic performance tests will not reflect the actual capabilities of the card in practical applications.
