For all its guarantee, the dispatch of AMD’s new Radeon RX 6600 XT GPU, and our analyzer card, the Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT Gaming OC Pro 8G, winds up addressing 2021’s tragic situation in illustrations cards. (Cards go at a bargain August 11.)
Basic reference plans of RX 6600 XT cards should begin at $379, while at $499 MSRP, Gigabyte’s entrance winds up contending with the base rundown cost of five-star, Editors’ Choice-winning cards like the $499 Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Founders Edition. What’s more, in that go head to head, it falls well behind assumptions.
In the interim, models of the RX 6600 XT really posting for $379 (not the one we tried, however) would lie more allied with the additionally noteworthy $399 Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Ti Founders Edition. The RX 6600 XT is essentially enclosed by extraordinary Nvidia choices.
The GPU is situated on the limit of superior 1080p and midrange 1440p play in AMD’s stack, basically as far as force, however estimating is another issue completely. Obviously, 2021 and its GPU deficiencies have made a joke of card list costs.
The issue is, in our testing, our Gigabyte model fell behind in some basic benchmarks, in any event, getting beat on occasion by lower-level cards like the $329-list EVGA GeForce RTX 3060 XC Black Gaming 12G. Obviously, execution doesn’t make any difference as much as “cost out the entryway” nowadays, and in the event that you can discover the Gigabyte card on dispatch day (or any day in the following a half year) close to MSRP, and a RTX 3070 or RTX 3060 Ti card isn’t accessible, and your first priority isn’t games dependent on DirectX 11, the Gigabyte is, in fact, worth its cost. Something else? Chase the slippery Nvidia cards, particularly if the Gaming OC Pro 8G is selling for a similar increase factor of rundown cost that most cards are nowadays.
The Gigabyte card we have close by depends on AMD’s new Radeon RX 6600 XT GPU. That chip depends on the organization’s RDNA 2 engineering, and it includes TSMC’s 7nm lithography on a 237mm2 “Navi 23 XT” GPU pass on.
The Radeon RX 6600 XT model we tried in the Gigabyte line highlights 8GB of GDDR6 RAM, which looks pretty standard contrasted across the path and Nvidia’s GeForce 3060 Ti Founders Edition, the RX 6600 XT’s nearest rivalry when looking at reference MSRPs. Notwithstanding, when you dive a bit further into the specs, you’ll see where things get a bit more muddled for Gigabyte…
