If you've been keeping up with the news surrounding the cryptocurrency mining craze, then you know that there are currently two separate "tracks" on the NVIDIA side of the equation. On the one hand, NVIDIA has introduced the CMP HX Series of headless graphics cards explicitly built for mining for cryptocurrencies like Ethereum. On the other hand, the company has implemented a mining limiter on the newly released GeForce RTX 3060,which cuts the ETH hash rate in half (although that limiter was quickly defeated with a beta driver). With NVIDIA using a combination of hardware, BIOS, and driver tweaks to cripple mining performance -- and hence cut down on demand from that segment... Read more...
Earlier this month, AMD took the wraps off the latest addition to its RDNA 2-based family of Radeons, the Radeon RX 6700 XT. During the livestreamed event, AMD disclosed that it was targeting high-framerate 1440p gaming with the Radeon RX 6700 XT, and that it would employ a new release strategy in an effort to get as many cards into gamers’ hands as possible at launch. Instead of releasing AMD-built reference cards first and following up sometime later with custom partner boards, AMD and its partners will be launching all flavors of Radeon RX 6700 XT today, across an array of on-line retailers and on AMD’s own website as well. The current supply chain issues and insatiable demand... Read more...
When it comes to Ethereum mining, NVIDIA has been getting a bulk of the attention in recent weeks for all the wrong reasons. Its newly released GeForce RTX 3060 has a cryptocurrency mining limiter enabled (crippling performance by up to 50 percent) in hardware/BIOS/drivers, and it's rumored that future GeForce RTX cards will have a similar limitation. But NVIDIA GPUs aren't the only ones capable of mining for cryptocurrency. AMD's previous-generation RDNA cards were well suited for Ethereum mining, however, its current-generation RDNA 2-based cards are not nearly as efficient. The alleged Ethereum mining hash rate for the upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT has been revealed. Although these... Read more...
AMD's Radeon RX 6700 XT will go on sale on March 18th, which means that we'll be seeing many new cards introduced over the next week and beyond. One such company onboard the AMD train is ASRock, which will release three custom Radeon RX 6700 XT across its Phantom Gaming and Challenger families. First up is the RX 6700 XT Challenger D 12GB, which ASRock bills as its "mainstream" option. It features dual Striped Axial Fans and ASRock's Ultra-fit heatpipe to maximize heat dissipation from the GPU. Also onboard is a strengthened metal backplate. Given that this is the base entry in the family, it doesn't feature any RGB LEDs, which might be a bonus for people who prefer a stealthier look. Moving... Read more...
After months of rumors and speculation, and then an accidental slip-up by AMD itself, the company finally announced the Radeon RX 6700 XT on Wednesday. The new GPU comes with a cut-down version of Big Navi, dubbed Navi 22 (not-so Big Navi?), which has 40 compute units with 12 GB of 192-bit GDDR6 VRAM. AMD targets 1440p with maximum settings as the render target for its newest $479 graphics card. This GPU has a pretty GPU boost high clock speed out of the gate, but BioStar has just announced that its RX 6700 XT models will run even faster.  The awkwardly named VA67T6TEL9 Ver. RX6700XT M appears to just be a reference design Radeon RX 6700 XT with a slightly higher than normal GPU clock... Read more...
The Episode 3 livestream of AMD’s “Where Gaming Begins” series just ended, during which the company revealed some feature updates coming to its Ryzen CPUs and Radeon GPUs and officially announced the latest member of its RDNA2-based Radeon RX 6000 family, the forthcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT. But before we dive into the Radeon RX 6700 XT, AMD also announced updates coming to previous-gen Ryzen 3000 series processors and its Radeon Software suite, that should make more than a few gamers and performance enthusiasts happy... Smart Access Memory Comes To Ryzen 3000 Smart Access Memory – AMD’s branding for supper of the PCIe spec’s Resizable BAR feature – launched... Read more...
AMD is going to officially add a new member to its Radeon RX 6000 series today, and you can watch the birthing of a new SKU live during a scheduled event, if you so desire. It kicks off at 11:00 am Eastern (8:00 am Pacific). We fully expect this will be a Radeon RX 6700 XT unveiling, as has been the subject of numerous leaks and rumors leading up to today. Watch AMD Unveil The Radeon RX 6700 XT Right Here The event will be livestreamed on AMD's "Where Gaming Begins" portal, and also on YouTube. You needn't go anywhere, though, as you are more than welcome to catch the event right here in our humble spot on the web (it's a BYOB affair)... There is no mention of how long the event will last, though... Read more...
AMD is going to unveil at least one new graphics card this week, which is almost certainly going to be the Radeon RX 6700 XT. Rumor has it the non-XT model will not make an appearance, though we will have to wait and see (and not very long—the unveiling is scheduled for this Wednesday, March 3). Ahead of the official launch, legitimate looking press renders have emerged, showcasing two custom models from ASUS. The one you see above is said to be the ASUS Radeon RX 6700 XT TUF Gaming OC. While no official details are yet available, AMD essentially (and inadvertently) confirmed last week that the Radeon RX 6700 XT will sport a Navi 22 GPU inside. The rare slip-up on AMD's part came by way... Read more...
So AMD has an event planned for March 3, during which time it will unveil the "latest addition" to its Radeon RX 6000 series lineup. We have a pretty good idea what that will be—the rumored and seemingly inevitable Radeon RX 6700 XT, and perhaps a regular Radeon RX 6700 (read: non-XT) as well. Whatever it ends up being called, it appears AMD has accidentally confirmed it will rock a Navi 22 GPU. Those are the next logical additions to AMD's rather thin RDNA 2 lineup, which currently consists of the following three models... Radeon RX 6900 XT: $999 Radeon RX 6800 XT: $649 Radeon RX 6800: $579 Meanwhile, rival NVIDIA today launched its fifth GeForce RTX 30 series graphics card to retail,... Read more...
We've been hearing about a new mid-range RDNA2 card from AMD for months, and it now looks as though the wait is nearly over. AMD tweeted this morning that it will hold a special event on March 3rd at 11 am during which it will announce the latest member of the Radeon RX 6000 family. Although AMD doesn't delve into any specifics, we're sure that the company will announce the Radeon RX 6700 XT at the event. This launch comes well after the Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Radeon RX 6800, which bowed at the end of 2020. Judging by the image that we have of the [alleged] Radeon RX 6700 XT, it features a less robust cooling solution consisting of just two fans (instead of the triple-fan arrangement... Read more...
AMD and NVIDIA both came out of the next-gen GPU gate with their respective guns blazing, as is typical when launching a new round of graphics cards—they both tend to show off their best stuff first, then release more affordable models as time goes on. Looking ahead, NVIDIA has confirmed its upcoming GeForce RTX 3060 (non-Ti) will land at retail on February 25. How will AMD counter attack the launch? If the latest rumor is true, it will bring out a Radeon RX 6700 XT card in mid-March. As of right at this moment, AMD still has just three RDNA 2 cards. They include the Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Radeon RX 6800. NVIDIA, on the other hand, is about to release to retail its fifth... Read more...
One of the more reliable sources for leaked information on unannounced graphics cards is the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website, as companies register their products in anticipation of a pending launch. So what does the EEC website reveal to us today? According to a recent listing by Gigabyte, we have semi-confirmation that AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT will ship with 12GB of GDDR6 memory, as previously rumored. Of course, nothing is ever truly confirmed until it is real, or in this case, until AMD says so. But in lieu of those things, these types of leaks will have to suffice. That said, this one is not hard to believe—the information in the listing is in line with prior leaks,... Read more...
Give it some time and both AMD and NVIDIA will inevitably flesh out their latest generation graphics card lineups with more SKUs. NVIDIA so far has been a bit more aggressive than AMD, having followed up its initial launch of three cards with the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and GeForce RTX 3060. However, there is more evidence to suggest that AMD will soon announce a Radeon RX 6700 XT. AMD also debuted its second generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) graphics architecture with three initial SKUs, those being the Radeon RX 6900 XT, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Radeon RX 6800. All three came out of the gate with 16GB of GDDR6 memory. Rumor has it the Radeon RX 6700 XT will sport 12GB of GDDR6 memory, to duke it out... Read more...
AMD stuck with the script when launching a new generation of graphics cards, by focusing on higher end models first. So right out of the gate, we had the Radeon RX 6900 XT ($999 MSRP), Radeon RX 6800 XT ($649 MSRP), and Radeon RX 6800 ($579 MSRP). The real money, however, is made in selling more affordable options. To that end, AMD could find itself in very good shape if the latest rumors regarding its upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT prove true. As things stand, AMD is going up against a stout lineup from rival NVIDIA, which has so far launched its GeForce RTX 3090 ($1,499), GeForce RTX 3080 ($699 MSRP), GeForce RTX 3070 ($499), GeForce RTX 3060 Ti ($399 MSRP), and GeForce RTX 3060 ($329 MSRP). It... Read more...
AMD is not finished cranking out graphics cards based on its second generation Radeon DNA (RDNA 2) GPU architecture. We can say that with relative certainty, because the typical script for next-gen GPU launches is to focus on the high end first, then release more affordable models later. NVIDIA did that with its GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, and word on the web is that AMD is prepping a couple of Radeon RX 6700 series cards. As things currently stand, AMD has come out with its Radeon RX 6900 XT, which ranks as the company's most powerful consumer graphics card ever built. We have also reviewed the Radeon RX 6800 XT and 6800, the company's two other RDNA 2 offerings for PC gaming. The cheapest of the bunch... Read more...
There have been a million and one leaks (or thereabouts) of what NVIDIA is cooking up to serve next within its Ampere line, like the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, but what about AMD? Team Red has only just come out with its first RDNA 2 cards, but like NVIDIA, you can bank on the company adding more SKUs to the small pile. Namely, a Radeon RX 6700 series might be imminent. Like its rival, AMD introduced RDNA 2 to the world with three higher end options, including the Radeon RX 6900 XT ($999), Radeon RX 6800 XT ($649), and Radeon RX 6800 ($579). These are intended to compete with the GeForce RTX 3090 ($1,499), GeForce RTX 3080 ($699), and GeForce RTX 3700 ($499), respectively. Not everyone has $500+ to... Read more...
