AMD unveils the Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card

The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card is the successor to the agency’s most vital launch of current years, the RX 5700 XT. AMD heralds this launch of not only a new sooner efficiency hope aiming squarely at 1440p gaming, however one which champions new applied sciences lots of which come underneath the heading of AMD FidelityFX. 

"use strict"; var adace_load_60d2f5df56e5e = function(){ var viewport = $(window).width(); var tabletStart = 601; var landscapeStart = 801; var tabletEnd = 961; var content = ''; var unpack = true; if(viewport=tabletStart && viewport=landscapeStart && viewport=tabletStart && viewport=tabletEnd){ if ($wrapper.hasClass('.adace-hide-on-desktop')){ $wrapper.remove(); } } if(unpack) { $self.replaceWith(decodeURIComponent(content)); } } if($wrapper.css('visibility') === 'visible' ) { adace_load_60d2f5df56e5e(); } else { //fire when visible. var refreshIntervalId = setInterval(function(){ if($wrapper.css('visibility') === 'visible' ) { adace_load_60d2f5df56e5e(); clearInterval(refreshIntervalId); } }, 999); }


“Modern games are more demanding than ever, requiring increasing levels of computing horsepower to deliver the breathtaking, immersive experiences gamers expect,” stated Scott Herkelman, CVP&GM, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. Appealing to the older GPU stalwarts, he added that “For most gamers still playing on three-to-four-year-old graphics cards, it is the perfect upgrade solution designed to deliver incredible visuals and no-compromises, high-refresh 1440p gaming performance at maximum settings.”

So what about efficiency? The Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card is now launched however AMD and companions will not be releasing reference and customized designs till Thursday, 18th March. Review embargoes could be lifted a bit sooner than that however for now we now have AMD’s singular official gaming efficiency slide to ponder over. It pits the RX 6700 XT 12GB GDDR6 (MSRP $479) in opposition to each the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti 8GB ($399) and RTX 3070 8GB ($499). The instructed RRPs make this an apt comparability, however I will not go down the pricing and availability rabbit gap as we speak. A wide variety of contemporary AAA titles is examined at 1440p however in fact options resembling RTX and DLSS aren’t used.

The tech specs of the reference Radeon RX 6700 XT Made by AMD (MBA) design could be seen within the slide under. Some further information is shared on the AMD information weblog, which studies the enhance clock as “up to 2,581MHz”. In transient, its drop in CU depend in comparison with the RX 6800, from 60CUs to 40CUs is sort of important, and it has 4GB much less GDDR6 and a extra restrictive reminiscence bus too – for a $100 low cost on RRP. Meanwhile, the smaller card’s TDP of 230W is eerily near the 250W RX 6800.

AMD companions will probably be placing out some merchandise with sooner sport and enhance clocks however on the time of writing none have revealed this stage of element. (eg Gigabyte, MSI). System builders like HP will probably be refreshing desktop pre-builds with these new Radeons which could be one other solution to purchase them.

AMD is promising considerably extra GPUs obtainable at launch with this line of graphics playing cards. We should wait and see if any distinction is felt by patrons.

You can watch AMD’s Where Gaming Begins: Ep.3 above. As effectively as the brand new graphics playing cards there may be fairly a little bit of the presentation devoted to AMD gaming applied sciences like FidelityFX, in addition to some footage of latest video games being performed with RDNA2 GPUs.
