According to a recent listing by ASRock, the heavily rumored AMD Radeon RX 6600 series of graphics cards are on the horizon and could feature 8 GB of memory across all models. The graphics card manufacturer has submitted filings for two RX 6600 and four Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics cards to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). This listing was initially spotted by hardware leaker, Komachi_Ensaka on Twitter.
The document mentions multiple different models of RX 6600 series graphics cards. All of which will reportedly feature 8 GB of GDDR6 memory and a 128-bit memory bus, amounting to a total bandwidth of 256 GB/s. Furthermore, the RX 6600 will reportedly come with 32 compute units and 32 ray accelerator cores, and 64 MB of Infinity Cache. It will also offer pin speeds of up to 16 Gbps. Many speculated that the RX 6600 XT models would launch with 12 GB of memory. However, it seems AMD is making all the graphics cards equal in this department.
ASRock has listed the following graphics cards:
- Radeon RX 6600 Challenger I
- Radeon RX 6600 Challenger D OC
- Radeon RX 6600 XT Challenger I
- Radeon RX 6600 XT Challenger D OC
- Radeon RX 6600 XT Phantom Gaming D
It should be said that 8 GB of memory doesn’t exactly scream power nowadays. However, these graphics cards will supposedly feature AMD’s Navi 23 GPU and benefit from RDNA 2 architecture. This could position the RX 6600 series as a value option for 1080p gaming with performance comparable to some of Nvidia’s budget RTX cards.
More Radeon graphics cards on the way
According to ASRock’s listing, AMD has not forgotten those looking for more power. The same document mentions the RX 6700 XT and RX 6900 XT GPUs. It’s expected that these will include 12 GB and 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, respectively. This would definitely help AMD compete with the likes of Nvidia’s RTX 3060 in the near future.
While this all sounds great, we hope to see AMD provide retailers with enough stock when these cards eventually launch. As usual, take this information with a grain of salt until we receive an official announcement from AMD.
