AMD Radeon RX 6700 is now an official part of AMD’s RX 6000 series lineup
AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 is now an official product, rounding off the RX 6000 series with a new product offering that sits between the RX 6650 XT and RX 6700 XT. This graphics card offers gamers 10 GB of VRAM, 36 compute units, 80MB of Infinity Cache, and supports 4K 120Hz and 8K 60Hz though HDMI 2.1.
To make a long story short, the RX 6700 is a cut-down version of AMD’s RX 6700 XT, with four fewer compute units (36 vs 40), lower base/boost clock speeds, and a smaller memory bus 160-bit VS 192-bit. This gives the RX 6700 a smaller frame buffer, less memory bandwidth, less Infinity Cache, and lower overall compute performance. These changes also give the GPU a much lower TDP, 175W VS 230W.
AMD has just released an updated version of their Radeon Software 22.5.2 driver that offers gamers official RX 6700 support, enabling optimal performance levels for this new graphics card in gaming applications.
Below is how AMD’s RX 6700 specifications compare with AMD’s RX 6650 XT and RX 6700 XT.
Looking at AMD’s RX 6700, it is clear that this graphics card is made to supply gamers superb efficiency per watt, offering players an extra compute performance and even more memory bandwidth than an RX 6650 XT while consuming less power. With this GPU style, it has been explained that higher clock speeds on AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series come with a substantial power price, which is often the situation.
Right now, it is unknown the number of GPU suppliers will certainly be creating RX 6700 GPU styles, or if AMD will certainly example these new graphics cards to reviewers. We understand that Sapphire has actually created an RX 6700 GPU version, yet currently the MSRP as well as accessibility of this graphics card stays unknown.
