AMD Radeon RX 6700 Reportedly Coming in April, 6700 XT Launching With 2 Variants

AMD’s is prepping to launch its upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT next month, and it might just be in 2 different configurations. Coreteks is reporting that team is planning on launching the 70-series RDNA 2 card with 2 different SKUs to maximize yield rates, and we’ll also be seeing a base RX 6700 coming sometime in April.

According to the report, the major difference in the 2 SKUs of the Radeon RX 6700 XT will come down to different TGP ratings. The more powerful ‘ASIC A’ version will be targeting 230W, with the ‘ASIC B’ targeting 189 W. Overall the 6700 XT GPU is expected to perform upwards of 20-25% of what the last-gen RX 5700 XT offered.

By now we’ve known for a while that the RX 6700 XT will come with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory, and that seemingly won’t change with the different variations. What’s more interesting is the alleged RX 6700 launch in April, which will come with a 6 GB VRAM buffer. That is still a little lower than what we expect from a 70-class graphics card, but at the higher clock speeds of RDNA 2, it might make up with competitive performance. Just to compare, NVIDIA’s recent GeForce RTX 3070 comes with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, and even the lower end RTX 3060 Ti has the same amount.

Going by our previous reports, the RX 6700 series should still offer great performance if they launch alongside FidelityFX Super Resolution, which is also slated to release in March.

AMD is yet to officially announce anything regarding the RX 6700 series, but it looks like we won’t have to wait long for that.
