Given how the ongoing GPU shortage has affected the pricing and stock of all graphics cards, most retailers are not selling them at MSRP. However, it’s still worth knowing a card’s MSRP because it gives us an idea of how a graphics card will perform compared to its counterparts.
As the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT is expected to release on August 11th, a new report from Neowin suggests this graphics card will come with an MSRP of $349. Initially, it was planned to be priced at $369, but AMD reportedly decided it was better to separate it further from the RTX 3060 Ti and put it closer to the RTX 3060.
As for the Radeon RX 6600, it should feature a $299 MSRP. In traditional rasterization, it should offer similar performance to that of the RTX 3060. Moreover, the report also states that the Radeon RX 6600 is releasing later than the XT variant.
The report also corroborates most of the rumoured specifications we’ve shared until now. Both cards are expected to feature 32MB of Infinity Cache, a Navi 23 GPU, and 8GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit memory bus. The Radeon RX 6600 XT will pack 2,048 stream processors, while the Radeon RX 6600 should feature 1,792 stream processors.
