Alleged AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT Render Leaked

AMD announced during CES 2021 that they would launch various new RDNA2 desktop and mobile products in 1H 2021 including dual and single fan Radeon graphics cards. The dual-fan variant turned out to be the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT which was launched in March but we are yet to see anything of the single-fan card until recently. This single-fan card is allegedly the RX 6600 XT and leaked renders of it align with what AMD showed during CES giving further validity to the leak. The render shows a black and silver design with red accents keeping with other RDNA2 cards and a single 8-pin power connector. The AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT is set to feature a Navi 23 GPU paired with 2048 Stream Processors paired with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory.

Theory.

AMD and NVIDIA alike are producing and stockpiling these lower end chips, like 6600XT, 3050Ti etc, I mean they're already in laptops but not desktops, so they exist and if memory serves it sort of bucks the trend of desktop cards first.

Both camps are heavily riding the wave of mid-high end offerings flying off shelves with great margins. This will end, it's already on the downswing, mining boom dropping off etc, the market will essentially flip and either everyone that wanted a 6800 or higher or 3060 or higher will pretty much have one, and there will be a 2nd hand market flooded with ex mining cards.

So with demand for brand new high end cards going to all but halt at some point, and they will finally flood the market with great stock of the lower end cards, that a lot of people wanted all along...

I was extremely lucky (obviously had to put in the work too) to secure a launch day 3080, and local retailers are asking 50-100% or more for my exact model atm, why sell at normal prices to scalpers when you can just scalp yourself?

6600 xt with one 8pin. What the hell... so 6600 will be with 6pin? 6500 without pins? Better question, will there be even 6500 series...

What's so surprising? 6600XT 1x8 pin is there something wrong with that?
My 5600xt Pulse has one 1x8pin power connector so no shock here.

Wondering if there will be gpu models without additionals pins with good performance.

Vertical fins seems very ineffective for a single fan design...the fins on the outsides of the fans will do literally nothing.

There was a post on chiphell forums showing timespy results for both 6600 cards.
Regular one is on par with 5600XT and the XT is somewhere between 5700 and 5700XT.
6600XT had somewhere around 30MHs

In terms of pricing it's rumored that he 6600 is gonna be around $300 and the XT 25% more.

5500 has one 1x6 pin if i remember correctly. I doubt there will be with a good performance level but who knows.

No idea what the fin shape behind the shroud is.

I remember cards having to use extrrnal power because slots fail to provide enough

6700xt $900 ish and 6800 $1100 ish in microcenter still way above msrp but just being in stock on multiple places is move in the right direction imo.

So.....RX 6600 XT should be much faster than 5600 XT right?
5600XT launched at $280

If 6600XT is more less 20% faster than 5600XT for 30% higher msrp, then that's garbage(no progress form last gen, regression in fact).

If that is the case........crazy world indeed.

6700XT is 32% faster than 5700XT and 20% higher price +12% gain.
I could make and educated guess and say 6600XT will be 20% faster and 10% more expensive than 5600XT.
$310

I don't expect 6600XT to have higher boost clock than 2684 MHz, and at that clock at best it will have +7% the 5700XT performance, so in the best case scenario for AMD 3060 will be 10% slower , also I don't expect below 160W TBP (VideoCardz report 2900MHz boost with 130W TBP) the logical thing for me is $399 6700 12GB -10% vs 6700XT and $329 6600XT -20% vs 6700XT and $279 6600 around 12-14% slower than 6600XT with at least 120W TBP.

Now, as the 7770 Cape Verde provide folks decent 1080p for entry pricing. It really gave rise to lot's of gamers the means to move to Full HD LED monitors, which where really coming of age in price.
If today this could offer that same equation in price I see more gamers looking toward 1440p panels that are now getting some better pricing.

While sure back in the day a 7870 offered good 1080p, I think lots of 1080p panels moved onto desks, as gamers didn't have to more than double the cost to at least consider a monitor upgrade and could do both.
Looking back at 2012 a 7770 for $160; today that buying power is only about $100, and that's with all computer parts generally lumped together. If considering just GPU's today that number probably somewhat lower. I'm no economist but say $300 for a card that offers better than decent 1440p seems like an improvement.
