AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card now official
AMD has officially unveiled their latest flagship 1080p graphics card, the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT.
Built with AMD RDNA 2 architecture, AMD claims the Radeon RX 6600 XT can deliver an impressively high-framerate, high-fidelity, and highly responsive 1080p gaming experience. Inside, it sports a 32MB AMD Infinity Cache, 8GB of GDDR6 memory, and an AMD Smart Access Memory. It also features support for AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution upscaling technology, which is designed to boost frame rates and deliver higher resolutions while gaming.
AMD also said that the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card can provide up to 15% higher performance on average with max settings across select AAA titles compared to its competitors. It is also said to offer a consistent 125FPS on average to maintain a high-fidelity and stable 1080p performance.
“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.”
Other features of the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card include AMD Radeon Anti-Lag, which helps decrease input-to-display latency; and AMD Radeon Boost with support for Variable Rate Shading, which can increase performance during fast-motion gaming scenarios.
The AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card with retail for USD 379 and will be available for sale on Aug 11, 2021, in select AMD partners such as ASRock, ASUS, BIOSTAR, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE, XFX, and Yeston. On the other hand, pre-built systems for OEMs and system integrators are expected to be available at the beginning of August.
