AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT coming in two variants, RX 6700 6 GB RDNA 2 graphics card, rumored for April 2021 launch according to Coreteks. The details are mostly related to the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT while tidbits of information for the Radeon RX 6700, RX 6900 XTX, and RX 6950 XT are also provided (as mere speculation). The reporter says that AMD is working on two variants of the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card. Both feature the Navi 22 GPU but there’s a variation in how each GPU is configured. It looks like it all comes down to yields and AMD doesn’t want to waste any GPU die hence they could be going this direction.
Is AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Getting Two Variants Launching in April 2021?
The top-binned variant of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT will feature a TGP of 230W and will be part of several custom designs featuring factory overclocks and premium cooling. The second-tier part will feature a TGP of 189W and will be used for reference designs only. The clock speeds of the card are said to be rated at around 2.5 – 2.6 GHz which is surprisingly high but not unexpected since we have seen similar numbers in previous leaks. Both cards will feature 12 GB of GDDR6 memory and will launch between 15th-19th March, though rumors claimed an 18th March launch date for Navi 22 GPUs.
The rumor states that AMD will be using the base price of the second-tier part as a starting MSRP but the higher-end variant of the Radeon RX 6700 XT is going to cost a big premium over the reference model. The site predicts a performance increase of 20-25% over the Radeon RX 5700 XT for the RX 6700 XT while offering a large memory size.
