New leaks for the upcoming Radeon RX 6600 series suggest that the GPU is not far from releasing. At this point, OEMs appear to be getting their hands on reference models of a Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card, images of which have been posted online.
Over on Twitter, a picture of an alleged OEM ‘Navi 23' GPU has been shared, showing a reference Radeon cooler with stickers on the back of the backplate labelling it as a “Radeon Navi 23 XT 8GB” card. The label further indicates that the card features 3x DisplayPorts and an HDMI port, and is from PC Partner Limited.

Previous rumours have said that the Radeon RX 6600 XT will feature 8GB of GDDR6 memory, so this image is in line with that. Other rumoured specifications of this SKU include a Navi 23 GPU with 2048 stream processors clocked at 2684MHz, while memory should be clocked at 16Gbps. TGP is expected to be around 130W.
As for when this card might be announced, AMD's Computex keynote is coming up on the 1st of June, hosted by CEO, Dr. Lisa Su.
KitGuru says: RDNA 2 tech is slowly working its way down to the mainstream GPU segment. Have any of you been waiting on cheaper RX 6000 series GPUs before upgrading?
