The non-XT version of the Radeon 6700 debuted in June of this year, and companies like Sapphire and XFX launched it almost immediately. However, the supply of these cards remains extremely limited.
Recent official performance records for this model were published by AMD, potentially as part of a fresh marketing initiative to counteract newly announced devices by competitors. It’s worth mentioning that AMD hasn’t released any performance statistics for this card yet, but complete specs have been available on AMD’s website for quite some time. Thus, performance estimates are new in that sense.
The AMD Radeon RX 6700 is built on a scaled-down Navi 22 GPU with 2304 Stream Processors. Additionally, this particular model is the only SKU in the gaming desktop RDNA2 series to include 10GB of GDDR6 RAM via a 160-bit interface. Radeon RX 6700M for laptops use nearly the same setup.
It is important to remember that while Intel officially unveiled its Arc A770 and A750 GPUs earlier this month, NVIDIA is now launching its GeForce RTX 3060 Ti with GDDR6X memory. All of these cards are anticipated to perform in a similar range. AMD is probably comparing the RX 6700 to the RTX 3060 Ti for this reason. Their SKU looks to be comparable to that of the NVIDIA card; however, both are surpassed by the 6700 XT model.
One thing to keep in mind is that the RTX 3060 Ti GPU is being compared while overclocked. It is quite rare for companies to compare compared their goods to solutions from other vendors with non-reference specifications. Whether this is manual overclocking or factory overclocking for a custom model is not indicated in the document’s footnotes. AMD has confirmed that the card has a 230W TDP, so at least we know it is not a Founders Edition (which is limited to 220W). This card’s default TDP/TBP is 200W.
In this setup, AMD claims up to 33% greater FPS/WATT than the RTX 3060 Ti OC.
