Recent rumours indicated that AMD would launch the Radeon RX 6600 series of graphics cards in August, but other sources have contradicted this claim. According to another prominent leaker, AMD will be launching the Radeon RX 6600 between September and October, followed by the first Navi 24 GPUs at the end of the year.
According to Coreteks, a prominent AMD leaker with a pretty good track record, we’ll be seeing the Radeon RX 6600 in late Q3 or early Q4 2021. However, the Radeon RX 6600 XT was not mentioned, so that graphics card could still launch in August.
➡️ 6600 Non-XT September/October
➡️ Navi24 end of this year

The AMD Radeon RX 6600 should feature a Navi 23 GPU with 1792 stream processors enabled and 32MB Infinity Cache. Rumours suggest that there will be an 8GB and a 4GB model, both using GDDR6 memory clocked at 16Gbps and a 128-bit memory bus.
As for the first Navi 24 graphics cards, these should be coming by the “end of this year”. Navi 24 GPU will likely power the Radeon RX 6500 series, succeeding the entry-level RX 5500 graphics cards.
