On the road to its rumored August market availability, AMD could unveil its Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card on July 30, at the ChinaJoy expo. The RX 6600 XT is a middle-of-the-market product that AMD likely expects to sell in heaps, in markets such as China. It competes with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 series. According to VideoCardz, the RX 6600 XT could see a July 30 unveiling, which usually comes with some teasers as to what buyers can expect from the card; followed by an August 6 unboxing embargo. The card launches on August 11. The RX 6600 (non-XT) is expected to launch later, in September. The RX 6600 XT is based on the 7 nm "Navi 23" silicon, and is rumored to feature 2,048 stream processors across 32 RDNA2 compute units. It also comes with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit wide memory bus, and 32 MB of on-die Infinity Cache memory. AMD is likely targeting the 1080p AAA and 1440p e-sports crowds with this card.

Reports on demand to supply aren't 1:1 though it will go a considerable way. I'm glad to see the end of 6GB or less video cards. 8GB is the minimal at this point for 1080p, 16 GB minimal for 4K. Some games at 1440 are already exceeding 12GB.

Avalability and price:
6600 8GB = more expensive than 2060 6GB (460 Euro in Germany)
6600XT = similar price to 3060 2070 and 2060Super ... they are expensive 560 Euro in Germany)
MSRP or SEP are meaningless
Miners will distort price structure until high doubledigits of millions of cards would be available, what will never happen anytime.

What games use 8GB of vRAM with low settings ?

At this point, you might as well buy a console. If you build a pc to game on low settings, youre doing yourself a disservice.

Most people own video cards longer than the generational releases; my original point was that AMD is putting sufficient amounts of RAM on their video cards so people who can't upgrade every two or three years won't have to rely on extended memory via the system RAM.

I disagree. Todays games look better at low settings than games did at high settings just years ago. So, i ask again, what games require 8GB of vRAM to run at 1080p with low-medium texture settings ?

If someone were to build a PC exclusively for gaming, then they must have deep pockets. It would be nice to think builders are doing more than that to further education or to explore new projects. Low budget card buyers probably fit that category.

Hell I'd love to hear which games REQUIRE more then 12GB of VRAM at 1440p. Even Doom eternal doesnt go that high. And given what VRAM limitations look like it should be really easy to prove....
