While AMD has not announced the non-XT RX 6700 graphics card, it is undoubtedly coming. The latest leak comes from PowerColor, showing a press image of the upcoming RX 6700 Fighter graphics card. The packaging leak also confirms that the RX 6700 will have a 6GB version.
The press shots shared by TechPowerUp show the upcoming graphics card’s packaging. As we can see by the three badges in the bottom left corner, the RX 6700 will target 1440p gaming, feature 6GB of VRAM and is PCIe 4.0 capable. PowerColor’s ‘Fighter’ edition RX 6700 will have a dual-fan cooler, the same one found on the company’s custom RX 6700 XT.

It’s still unclear if there will be another SKU featuring 12GB of VRAM. We have previously seen EEC entries from ASUS and ASRock listing RX 6700 series graphics cards with both 6GB and 12GB, so there’s still a chance AMD will launch a second SKU with double the memory.
While exact specifications remain unconfirmed, the Radeon RX 6700 is expected to feature a cut-down Navi 22 GPU with 36 CUs (2304 stream processors) and a 192-bit memory bus. This graphics card should be launching in Q2 2021.
KitGuru says: If AMD does launch two RX 6700 SKUs with different memory configurations, would you choose to save some money by picking up the 6GB version, or would you prefer to have a full 12GB of VRAM?
