techno.rentetan.com – AMD says the RX 6600 XT is 15% higher than the RTX 3060 in Nvidia, but not so high as the 3060 Ti.
We are in the middle of a pandemic and a global chip crunch, but AMD does not stop releasing another new GPU. The $380 RX 6600 XT is here and is now the most economical part of the current GPU lineup of AMD’s 6,000 range. Although its characteristics are not as eye-catching as some dearer siblings, AMD says the 6600 XT was designed to deliver strong performance for 1080p gaming.
The 6600 XT has 32 calculating units with an AMD Infinity Cache with 8GB of DDR6 RAM, a 32MB and a 2359 MHz game clock. In addition, AMD says that the RX 6600 XT requirement is sufficiently low that owners only need a power supply with 500 watts, in place of 800 or 1000 watts PSUs, which typically are needed to support high-end machines like 6900 XT or 3080 Ti in Nvidia. In fact, ASRock even manufactures a single version of the 6600 XT with a single cooling fan, which can be used in smaller ATX or mini-ITX systems.
The principal objective of AMD is to support 1080p gaming in a variety of titles, especially given that 2/3 of new gaming monitors shipped in 2020 have 1080p resolutions. AMD says that in games such as Cyberpunk 2077, Doom Eternal, Forza Horizon 4 and other matches the 6600 XT delivers 15 percent better performance compared with Nvidia’s RTX 3060. In general, the card fits between the RTX 3060 and 3060 Ti in terms of performance.
However the6600XT is still more than supportable to 1440p or even 4K gameplay, because it supports features such as AMD Smart Boost, Radeon Anti-Lag and the AMD Super FX Resolution, so that you might have a little bit to play with game graphics. And AMD says that its anti-label feature also reduces input latency by up to 13 percent for those who live and die by millisecond reactions. As for VR, AMD states that the 6600 XT exceeds all the minimum requirements for modern HMDs, so that it can power both traditional and VR gamers.
In contrast to the previous AMD desktop GPU 6000 series, the 6600 XT model is not going to be a reference. In order to produce retail versions of the card, AMD relies on all its usual partners including Asus, MSI, ASRock, Gigabyte, and others.
Of course it raises the rather difficult issue of availability, which makes it increasingly difficult in the last 12-18 months for players to gain control of new GPUs. According to AMD, with its partners it works “extremely closely” to get as many cards as possible into player hands, although it is difficult to explain how easy or hard it is to buy one at launching without specified numbers.
But the RX 6600 XT seems like a great component for the task if you are waiting for a new and relatively economical GPU to hold down your 1080p battleground. As always, we must wait for one to be tested to be sure.
