There have been numerous rumours regarding the launch of AMD's upcoming Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card. While previously an August 11th launch gained some traction, it seems that AMD may make the announcement earlier, with reports claiming that AMD will be announcing its next GPU at Chinajoy 2021.
According to known leaker, @greymon55, the Radeon RX 6600 won't be present at the event, so just expect the XT version. Apparently, the RX 6600 (non-XT) won't even make it to the DIY market, with the leaker claiming that “AMD isn't very enthusiastic about the non-XT line”. This could mean that the RX 6600 may just be available as an OEM or mobile GPU.
The team at VideoCardz also shared what it has gathered from its sources, corroborating the July 30th announcement. Moreover, it also claimed that the unboxing embargo ends on August 6th, and the launch is set for August 11th.
At launch, it is unlikely that there will be many RX 6600 XT graphics cards available at AMD's alleged MSRP of €349. Some sources have claimed that we could see retail prices as high as €549. As for the specifications, the Radeon RX 6600 should feature a fully enabled Navi 23 GPU with 2048 streaming processors, 8GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit memory bus, and 32MB of Infinity Cache.
