Here we go with another graphics card review, and yes we know it is likely you won’t be able to buy this card. The card we are talking about is the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT. This will be the fourth card in AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series and they say it is the ideal choice for 1440p gaming. It is based on AMD’s 7nm “Navi 22” silicon and is the first card to make use of this new GPU. It maxes it out with 40 RDNA 2 compute units, which gives you 2560 stream processors, 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs, 40 Ray Accelerators, and 12GB of GDDR6 memory running across a 192-bit bus. The specific card we are checking out today is MSI’s Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming X, which currently sits as MSI’s flagship RX 6700 XT. The card features a boost clock of 2659 MHz (vs 2581 MHz of reference), MSI’s Twin Frozr 8 cooling solution which features their Torx 4.0 fans, a full-cover backplate, and some nice RGB lighting! Let’s take a look!
The Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming X comes in MSI’s typical retail packaging. On the front of the box we have a picture of the card and it lets us know the card is made for 1440p gaming, features 12GB memory, and supports PCI-Express 4.0.
Flipping over to the back some of the main features of the card are detailed and we have a list of minimum system requirements.
Getting everything out of the box we have the Radeon RX 6700 XT Gaming X Graphics Card, a registration card, hardware and software installation guide, and a quick user’s guide.
