Earlier this month, we got an early look at Gigabyte’s upcoming Radeon RX 6600 Eagle 8G gaming card, which slots under the Radeon RX 6600 XT. Today it’s Sapphire’s turn, as the company’s Radeon RX 6600 Pulse is now listed for preorder at European retailer PC Dig. The thing that sticks out to us the most is how small the card is while maintaining a dual-fan configuration like its Radeon RX 6600 XT Pulse counterpart. This should allow the two-slot gaming card to fit into small-form-factor (SFF) systems easily. Besides the cooling setup, which also appears to include an aluminum heatsink and heat pipes, we also see a single 8-pin power connector. Just a single connector is... Read more...
We were hopeful about the supply of the Radeon RX 6600 XT thanks to comments made by PowerColor earlier this month. Leading up to the launch of the Radeon RX 6600 XT, PowerColor told us not only that cards would be available at MSRP almost immediately, but that "we will have plenty of cards on day one in the channel." Unfortunately, reality has set in, which means that the Radeon RX 6600 XT is proceeding much like every other major GPU launch for the past year... poorly. In other words, the cards immediately sold out or simply weren't available in the first place when sales opened this morning at 9am ET. Best Buy only lists three Radeon RX 6600 XT cards from XFX priced from $379.99 to $479.99,... Read more...
Do you think maybe AMD's add-in board (AIB) partners are anxious to unveil custom cards based around the not-yet-announced Radeon RX 6600 XT with a Navi 23 GPU underneath the hood? At least one of them can barely contain their excitement. That would be PowerColor, which apparently is prepping at least three custom models. You won't actually find any references to a Radeon RX 6600 XT on AMD's website, because officially, the card does not exist. Unofficially, however, we know it is coming. Reliable leaks and rumors say so, and none more trustworthy than PowerColor's own premature product listings—for a brief time, PowerColor's website referenced the Radeon RX 6600 series, and specifically...

Rumors abound on a pair of upcoming graphics card from AMD, namely the Radeon RX 6600 XT and Radeon RX 6600, both of which briefly appeared on PowerColor's website earlier this week. Their launches are inevitable—it's only a matter of time before AMD fleshes out its RDNA 2 lineup with more affordable cards. But when exactly will we see them, and how much will they cost? Well, leakers have put out some interesting information about one of the cards. The card in question is the Radeon RX 6600 XT, and the consensus from leakers is that it will arrive sometime in August. If that is a case, a launch is anywhere from three and a half weeks to seven and a half weeks away from this very moment.... Read more...
AMD has not yet announced the Radeon RX 6600 XT, which seems like an inevitable addition to its RDNA 2 stack. While not necessarily a foregone conclusion, multiple leaks and rumors leave us with high confidence that the unofficial SKU will become official at some point. And perhaps soon, evidenced by Gigabyte listing a handful of custom Radeon RX 6600 XT cards with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). The EEC website has historically been a hotbed for unannounced products, probably much to the chagrin of companies like AMD and NVIDIA. It has not been a 100 percent reliable source of unconfirmed product releases, though more often than not, registered products that do not yet officially exist... Read more...
AMD is looking to make a splash in the mobile gaming market with its recently introduced Radeon RX 6000M lineup for laptops. Based on the same second generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) architecture as its desktops Radeon RX 6000 series, the mobile GPUs look promising on paper. How do they perform in the real world, though? Some leaked benchmarks of a supposed Radeon RX 6600M may give us an idea. That is one of three mobile GPUs that comprise the Radeon RX 6000M series at the moment, the other two being the Radeon RX 6700M and Radeon RX 6800M. Here's a quick and dirty specification comparison of the three... Radeon RX 6800M: 40 CUs, 2,300MHz game clock, 12GB GDDR6, 192-bit bus, 96MB Infinity Cache... Read more...
It is no big secret that AMD will eventually get around to fleshing out its Radeon RX 6000 series with lower tier models at more affordable price points. Exactly when, at what specific price points, and the specifications are questions that will be answered in due time. For now, however, we can at least look at what appears to be a Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card in engineering sample form. The leaked photograph only shows part of the card, though it does offer up some potentially revealing bits. Chief among them is the "Navi 23 XT" designation on the label. Normally this is not something you see plastered on graphics cards, though being a presumed engineering sample, it does not stick out as... Read more...
AMD will eventually get around to fleshing out its Radeon RX 6000 series with some lower tier models at more affordable price points. Well, in practice anyway—in reality, GPUs of all shapes and sizes are scarce and overpriced in today's landscape. Be that as it may, more GPUs are coming, and a recent leak highlights what to expect from one of them: Navi 23. This is far from the first time we have heard of a Navi 23 part. It has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors, and is expected to power the Radeon RX 6600 XT and Radeon RX 6600, and perhaps even the Radeon RX 6500. It will just depend on how AMD wants to space things out. There's also a Navi 24 GPU in the works, codenamed Beige... Read more...
AMD launched its current generation of high-end gaming cards late last year with Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Radeon RX 6900 XT. Each offer excellent all-around performance along that MSRPs that undercut their NVIDIA counterparts. We say "MSRP" because finding the graphics cards at those prices is near-impossible. Now, the company is ready to extend its RDNA 2 graphics architecture further into the mainstream market with the release of the Radeon RX 6600 and Radeon RX 6600 XT. Earlier this week, several ASRock cards materialized via a Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) filing. In the filing were Radeon RX 6600 XT SKUs, allegedly part of the Phantom Gaming family. Those SKUs were joined... Read more...
AMD has not yet ported its second generation Radeon DNA (otherwise known as RDNA 2) graphics architecture to the mobile side of things yet, but you can bet it will happen. A launch might even be right around the corner. Potential proof of this can be seen in a breakdown of AMD's latest GPU driver, which references a Radeon RX 6600M part. The only consumer RDNA 2 parts that officially exist right now are all on the desktop, consisting of AMD's flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT ($999 MSRP), followed by the Radeon RX 6800 XT ($649 MSRP), Radeon RX 6800 ($579 MSRP), and Radeon RX 6700 XT ($479 MSRP). AMD's desktop lineup will be fleshed out with lower priced options in time, at least in regards to MSRPs... Read more...
AMD has barely exited the virtual stage after having launched the Radeon RX 6700 XT earlier this week, the newest addition to its RDNA 2 lineup with 1440p gaming in its sights, and already there is a rumor of a Radeon RX 6500 series being around the corner. Or more accurately, a rumor of a Navi 23 GPU that is likely to comprise the Radeon RX 6500 series. Nothing in that regard is remotely official, of course, so keep that in mind when processing the details. That said, there is chatter of a Navi 23 GPU codenamed Dimgray Cavefish that is built for "premium 1080p gaming" (and also to power a refreshed Tesla Model S, based on a previous rumor). While only AMD knows if that is the case, it is certainly... Read more...
Yesterday, we reported on the refreshed Tesla Model S, which is available in Plaid and Plaid+ versions with a 1,020-horsepower tri-motor setup, an all-new interior, and some slightly tweaked styling up front. One rather curious mention with regards to the new Model S, however, came with its ability to play high-end video games on the 17-inch center display for the front passengers and the 8-inch rear display for the rear passengers. Tesla says that there is "up to 10 teraflops of processing power" on-hand to deliver a gaming experience "on-par with today's newest consoles". That's a rather bold statement, but seems within reason given that the PlayStation 5 is rated at 10.28 TFLOPs and the... Read more...
AMD has shown the desktop a lot of love with its Zen 3 CPUs (Ryzen 5000 series) and RDNA 2 GPUs (Radeon RX 6000 series), and both architectures will eventually find their way to mobile designs, as well. Earlier today we wrote about several Ryzen 5000H and Ryzen 5000U CPUs that were recently leaked. As a follow-up, let's talk about the latest Radeon RX 6000M leaks. The Radeon RX 6000M series is what we presume AMD will call its mobile GPUs based on RDNA 2. We have not heard a whole about AMD's mobile GPU plans, but as time goes on, more unofficial information has materialized. As things stand, it looks like there will be at least three mobile GPUs based on AMD's latest graphics architecture: Navi... Read more...
It seems as it was just yesterday when AMD launched its Ryzen 4000 APUs based on Zen 2 "Renoir" architecture. The processors are giving Intel a real run for the money with respect to performance, and as we've seen with the ASUS ROG Strix Hero III, Ryzen 4000 processors are incredibly power efficient as well. AMD may have pushed Ryzen 4000 APUs out the door, but it's already far along with its next-generation Ryzen 5000 APUs that will be based on Zen 3 "Cezanne" microarchitecture. Although somewhat confusing, the first consumer-centric Zen 3 processors are coming later this year under Ryzen 4000 branding (desktop), with Ryzen 5000 mobile Zen 3 processors likely coming next year....
