AMD To Release The 1080p ‘Beast’ Radeon RX 6600 XT Soon

Ultimate 1080p Experience

AMD’s RX 6000-series now has a new entry-level GPU that’s targeting 1080p and is still based on the RDNA 2 architecture. It won’t be targeting 4K at all, but promises the “ultimate 1080p gaming experience”. The new RX 6600 XT will be the new entry-level GPU, costing only $379.

The GPU will target those players who don’t want to break the bank on gaming and have only 1080p monitors. The market is arguably very saturated with top-of-the-line GPUs that are trying to show off their muscles. The little guys deserve the win too.

The RX 6600 XT will feature 8 GB of RAM, 32 compute units, 2589 MHz boosted clock and will draw 160W of power.

The GPU while cheap, it promises to run top-of-the-line AAA games such as Battlefield 5 and Cyberpunk 2077. It also offers 1.4x better FPS compared to the RX 5600 XT and the RX5700 in-game tests.

In regards to the GPU shortage that’s been going on since the pandemic started, AMD only promises that they’re doing their best to supply, and that the “supply constraints” are real.

“But what’s happened over the past 12 months is that the demand has far exceeded even our aggressive expectations. From our standpoint, it is very much about continuing to ramp capacity because we do have such strong demand.” CEO of AMD, Su said in an interview.

The RX 6600 XT is expected to release this August 11th.
