14 Jun 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon RX 6600 8GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 12 requirement.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the Radeon RX 6600 8GB. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2021. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 981 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon RX 6600 8GB can run Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis at 1080p and saw it return strong frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 1606 FPS, Medium: 1266 FPS, High: 852 FPS and Ultra: 609 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Resident Evil 8 returns a reasonable 54 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis to see how the Radeon RX 6600 8GB dealt with it. It scored up a strong series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 1225 FPS, Medium: 965 FPS, High: 650 FPS and Ultra: 464 FPS. Next we looked at Resident Evil 8 which was playable with a 41 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Elden Ring that we predict will get an Ultra 1440p FPS of 70. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 6600 8GB we get the impression that it is probably one of the better high resolution gaming options on the graphics card market. You can consider pushing most games up to 4K with this gpu and Ultra 1440p is going to be a regular occurrence for gaming today.

How many years will the Radeon RX 6600 8GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 6600 8GB in your PC? 2-3 years of top end gaming before an upgrade

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 6600 8GB? A suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon RX 6600 8GB is the 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which is 23% more powerful and can run 998 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Radeon RX 6600 8GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The Radeon RX 6600 8GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the second (2.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.


Architecture
The Navi 23 GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5.


This variant of the Navi 23 GPU features 32 Compute Units activated, offering 2048 Shader Processing Units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1605 MHz base clock speed and up to 2500 MHz with boost clock. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the GeForce RTX 3060.


GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1605 MHz, rising to 2500 MHz with boost clock enabled.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 8GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 4K Gaming, In some limited scenarios, 8GB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 170W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.


Performance
AMD Radeon RX 6600 8GB competes with GeForce RTX 3060 8GB, which is available for $399.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 6600 8GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 3060.


System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 6600 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 4K. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
