Playing with a latest generation graphics was quite expensive until now. Both NVIDIA and AMD had so far launched their new high-end graphics, but little by little they have been offering more modest and more affordable solutions, and that is precisely what AMD brings us today with its Radeon RX 6600 XT.
This is the last member of the family of graphics with AMD RDNA2 architecture, and is oriented to be able to play with all the guarantees in 1080p resolution. This AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT official price is $ 379, which places it as a clearly more affordable option than its older sisters and its competitors. You can also have a look about Radeon RX 6700 XT in our previously published article.
A graphics that takes advantage of the popularity of 1080p gaming
Although we often talk about how the most powerful graphics already allow gaming in 4K and Ultra level of detail, those settings are usually used only by a small proportion of PC gamers.
AMD itself indicates that two out of three monitors sold are 1080p, and precisely this Radeon RX 6600 XT is designed to take advantage of those monitors to the maximum without the investment in the equipment being exaggerated.
The Radeon RX 6600 XT has 32 CUs, and works at a frequency of 2,359 MHz that can go up to 2,589 MHz. A particularly striking section is its 8 GB GDDR6 memory , a surprising amount for a modest graphic within the RX family. 6000 from AMD.
The manufacturer claims that the performance is superior to that achieved with the NVIDIA RTX 3060, and if it fulfills that promise, this card will certainly be an interesting option for many gamers. We will be able to take advantage of the RDNA2 architecture, including FSR technology that competes with DLSS.
The new AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT will go on sale on August 11, and several manufacturers will have their models ready to land on the market. The official price, as we pointed out, is $ 379, but lately that cost has not coincided with the price in stores.
It remains to be seen what the final prices in euros of these proposals will be and, of course, their real availability in the face of the chip shortage problems that we have been experiencing for months.
