AMD will continue to compete with Nvidia this time on the RTX 3060. With the Radeon RX 6600 XT, the company is aimed at gamers who don’t consider 4K gaming very important and are completely happy with 1080p. Ideal for small budgets as it is marketed for $ 379.

As graphics card manufacturers continue to compete for performance and push the boundaries of FPS, 4K, and other beam tracking a little further each time, some gamers may not want to play with a modern setting — and you have to admit, very expensive. According to a study by IDC, two-thirds of game screens sold in 2020 offer 1080p resolution. Blessing to AMD who sees it there a new field to compete with NVIDIA.

The American company today unveiled a new entry-level graphics card with the sweet name Radeon RX 6600 XT, which thus combines the RX 6000 series with its RDNA2 architecture. According to the latter, the RX 6600 XT offers “The ultimate 1080p gaming experience” and this at an affordable price. The card is actually sold at $ 379. We do not yet know the price in euros, but we can claim that it is around € 350-360.

Very attractive price, but what is its technical sheet worth? The RX 6600 XT consists of 32 units of account, which includes 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM memory. The clock frequency is 2389 MHz and maybe overclocked to 2589 MHz. Therefore, it is clearly below the flagships of the area; RX 6900 XT 80 with calculation unit and RX 6700 XT 40.

On the other hand, compared to the RX 5600 XT, it brings significant improvements. Players can at least enjoy 1.4 times more FPS games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Doom Eternal. It also offers better performance than the Geforce RTX 3060, at least according to AMD, but it’s also more expensive because the Nvidia card is sold $ 329.

The availability issue still exists. In theory, the launch is planned August 11. But AMD acknowledges that the risk of a shortage is never far off. “We’re doing our best to get stocks, but demand is unprecedented and supply constraints are real, so we’re working to resolve these situations.”, said the builder. As a reminder, the price of the RTX 3000 and RX 6000 has tripled since January 2021.
