The AMD Radeon RX 6600 is just around the corner, and today a number of performance results from AMD’s internal testing were released.
AMD RX 6600, performance on par with the RTX 3060
A series of internal AMD tests with current video games shows what kind of performance we can expect. According to these results, AMD’s RX 6600 should deliver a very similar performance to an RTX 3060. That is exactly the segment this graphics card is aimed at, the mid-range segment.
The Radeon RX 6600 non-XT will feature 1792 stream processors, which is 256 units less than the XT variant launched later this year. The Navi 23 chip that powers this graphics card is the same chip used for the Radeon Pro W6600 and W6600M notebook graphics cards.
Clock speeds are 2044 MHz for gaming and 2491 MHz as a boost clock, although this is always the reference model and third-party manufacturers are able to vary this number by overclocking.
At launch, AMD will not offer reference models, leaving it up to third-party vendors to develop their own. This means that the promotional model with a single fan is not guaranteed and special edition models might have two fans in their cooling system.
The graphics card’s power consumption will be 132 W (TBP), 28 W less than the RX 6600XT. The memory capacity is 8 GB.
The performance we can observe is almost similar to the RTX 3060, with the RTX 3060 performing 13% better on average in games with ray-tracing effects. Some of the games tested were Far Cry 6, Battlefield V, or Deathloop, which support this technology.
We will see if these results match reality when independent media reports are published.
