RX 6600 XT 8GB once again spotted in EEC listing, Gigabyte preparing 6 different models

Written by Neil Soutter on Wed, Jun 23, 2021 4:25 PM

Ah, the good ole Eurasian Economic Commission once again gives us a glimpse into what some manufacturers are planning in terms of upcoming graphics cards. AMD has been slow to roll out their latest generation of RX 6000 series GPUs, most likely due to the global chip shortage, but they have yet to launch a proper mainstream GPU up until now.

But that will all change when they eventually launch the RX 6600 series which will include the RX 6600 XT and RX 6600, both featuring 8GB of GDDR6 video memory. Gigabyte is seemingly planning 6 different models for the RX 6600 XT alone, at least according to an EEC listing:

Those 6 models are the:

  • Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT Gaming OC PRO
  • Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT Gaming PRO
  • Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT Gaming
  • Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT Gaming OC
  • Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT Eagle OC
  • Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT Eagle

The RX 6600 XT will apparently feature the Navi 23 XT GPU which has already debuted with the RX 6600M and Radeon Pro W6600 graphics cards, but this will be the first mainstream desktop gaming card to feature that GPU die.

We don’t know the full specs yet unfortunately, but it is said that the RX 6600 XT will have 2048 cores and 32MB of Infinity Cache along with the 8GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit bus width (256GB/s bandwidth in total). The RX 6600 non-XT will feature the same specs apart from slightly fewer cores at 1792 instead.

What the Navi 23 GPU has in common with the other mobile and Pro workstation variants already are clock speeds up to 2.9GHz, so we can expect some pretty decent clock speeds on the RX 6600 XT and RX 6600 when we do find out.

Lastly, the RX 6600 XT is expected to compete against the RTX 3060 (and according to leaked benchmarks, beats out the RX 5700 XT), so could cost anywhere between $299-$329. Whereas the RX 6600 non-XT could be between $269 and $299. With graphics card prices slowly dropping and a smaller GPU die, hopefully we’ll see both of these cards closer to their MSRP and in better availability this time round.

What do you think? Are you excited for the RX 6600 XT or RX 6600 non-XT? How much do you think each one will cost? And will it be a good time for AMD to release more GPUs? Let us know your thoughts!

Would you be interested in getting an RX 6600 XT or RX 6600

MSRP doesn't matter.

Well, it does in a sense that you should not be paying over that price - it's at least a guide number. Imagine if there was no such thing as MSRP and people were setting their own "willing to pay" prices - maybe those 3060s going for over a grand wouldn't seem like such an outrage then. But it is, since we know how much it should cost - anything above that just gets annoying.

When I was waiting for 3090 stock, I wasn't even willing to pay the usual £100-300 over MSRP for the partner cards (which were in stock at the time), because I don't feel like a different cooler design or some RGB warrant the price hike over FE - it's certainly not suddenly gonna make the card run faster or look better (for me, anyway). It's a different scenario now vs back then, of course, but nobody should be paying over MSRP anyway (even if the MSRP is dumb to begin with, like in the case of a 3070Ti or a 3080Ti)

What I mean is that right now MSRP doesn't matter since everything is overpriced. I didn't mean MSRP in general doesn't matter.

Maybe, it all depends on performance, but I would actually like to upgrade to something higher end, when things normalize. So not soon. But those were planned probably a lot sooner, then whole this mess happened and they were like, why offer cheap stuff, if we can just give them more expensive stuff and profit. Now that things might slowly start to normalize, they will have to compete again.

As for price, in current market good knows, there is no point in asking how much we think they will cost, because it will be whatever MSRP is 2x at least. But considering 6700XT has 480USD MSRP, 6600XT would probably be somewhere around 350USD, non-XT sub 300USD. I guess, or not, who knows in whole madness where MSRP will be, since it is easier to drop it latter than rise it latter.

don't think in these current market conditions that both AMD and the board partners will leave money on the table, i think both will be north of $300 MSRP.

My bet is that the MSRP of the RX6600XT will be 350$ and if there is a RX6600 non-XT it will be 300$

Gigabyte preparing 6 different models. Sounds to me that there will only be 6 gpus to buy at launch and then out of stock

So you'd like to buy the 6600XT then? I'm still very curious about your stock complaints.
