A screenshot from TechPowerUP GPU-Z confirms Radeon RX 6600 non-XT is the first card from the RDNA2 lineup with reduced memory speed.
The complete specs on the Radeon RX 6600 non-XT model were revealed a few days back. It is an upcoming mid-tier graphics card. Radeon RX 6600 is based on the Navi 2X architecture.
AMD has never launched a desktop RDNA2 card slower than this one. It features ‘only’ 1792 Stream Processors, and a decrease of 256 cores as compared to the full Navi 23 GPU has been observed.
This new card will have lower frequencies than the XT variant. The card will have a game clock and a boost clock of 2044 MHz and 2491 MHz respectively. In comparison to the XT SKU, there’s a difference of 319 and 98 MHz respectively. Moreover, this card will also have restricted memory bandwidth from 256 GB/s to 224 GB/s, owing to the decrease in memory speed from 16 Gbps to 14 Gbps.
According to reports AMD had limited the card’s performance by choice by introducing lower clocks, limited bandwidth, and reduced power utilization of 132W. All these features will prohibit the card from attaining RX 6600 XT performance and self-competition with the RDNA2 stack.
AMD declares that their RX 6600 non-XT gives approximately 1.3 times more efficient performance per watt than GeForce RTX 3060, which, without any doubt, is a great feature. The card will officially launch on the 1st of October, which is also the date for the review embargo.
