Today AMD has officially announced its latest graphics card from its RDNA2 family, the Radeon RX 6700 XT. The graphics card was revealed during the “Where Gaming Begins: Episode 3” event, which was hosted by Scott Herkelman.
The card will be powered by the new 7nm “Navi 22” silicon, which is physically smaller than the “Navi 21” which powers the Radeon RX 6800/6900 series. The RX 6700 XT will max out the silicon with 40 RDNA 2 compute units, giving you 2560 stream processors. The card will have a base clock of 2321 MHz, game clock of 2424 MHz, and a boost clock of 2581 MHz. With this you are going to get a maximum single-precision compute performance of 13.2 TLFOPS. There are 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and 40 Ray Accelerators for real-time raytracing. The card is equipped with 12GB of GDDR6 memory across a 192-bit bus, which gives you 384 GB/s of bandwidth.
The card is built with a 10-layer PCB and power to the card is by way of a combination of 8pin and 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors. Official TDP is listed at 230W, which is more than expected. The card will launch on March 18th and will be priced at $479. At launch you will be both custom and reference models, so this should increase availability.
AMD will be marketing this as a 1440P card to go head-to-head with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti.
