As part of the Where Gaming Begins: Episode 3 event, AMD has unveiled a new graphics card based on the RDNA2 architecture – the Radeon RX 6700 XT.
The video card is equipped with a Navi 22 GPU with 40 computing units. They have a base frequency of 2321 GHz, a gaming frequency of 2424 GHz, and a maximum frequency of 2581 GHz. This allows the card to deliver a maximum single-precision computing performance of 13.2 TLFOPS.
AMD has already unveiled the first performance figures for the new graphics card. Based on tests, the RX 6700 XT will compete with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti in games with a resolution of 1440p. At the same time, it is one and a half times faster than the RTX 2080 Super and twice as fast as the GTX 1070 Ti. This good result is largely due to a large amount of memory. This graphics card has 12GB of GDDR5 RAM, bringing the maximum bandwidth to 384GB/s. Also, the video card received 96 MB of fast Infinity Cache memory.
The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT has a suggested retail price of $480, but you are unlikely to buy it at that price.
