Gigabyte has submitted six models of the upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card to the EEC. By submitting these cards to the EEC, the company has confirmed that the Radeon RX 6700 XT will ship with 12GB of GDDR6 memory.
As per the EEC listing found by @KOMACHI_ENSAKA, Gigabyte plans to initially launch six graphics card models. The names in the listing suggest Gigabyte will launch an AMD reference design graphics card, two custom cards belonging to its Eagle series, another two cards from Gigabyte’s Gaming series and one Aorus graphics card, all shipping with 12GB DDR6 memory.

EEC’s listing further suggests Gigabyte won’t launch the Radeon RX 6700 non-XT alongside the RX 6700 XT GPU, meaning both should feature different release dates. Considering the timing of this listing, AMD could announce the upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT before the end of Q1. Previously, rumours have all hinted at a 1H2021 launch for the RX 6700 series.
The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT should come with the fully-enabled Navi 22 GPU, featuring 2560 stream processors and 40 Ray Accelerators. The 12GB of GDDR6 memory and a 192-bit memory bus will be paired with the Navi 22 GPU alongside an undisclosed amount of Infinity Cache.
