AMD announced the Radeon RX 6600 GPU, which aims to deliver “epic 1080p performance.” The new graphics card will be available on August 11, 2021 with a suggested price of $379. AMD will not sell a reference version of the GPU, but you’ll be able to purchase it from the expected partners that make the best GPUs, including ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, and more.

The suggested price of the RX 6600 XT is $100 less than the RX 6700 XT, which targets 1440p gaming. Many gamers still prefer to game at 1080p with high framerates. Over 68% percent of gamers on Steam use a 1080p monitor.

The RX 6600XT competes with NVIDIA’s RTX 3060, though it comes with a price tag that’s $50 higher. AMD states that the RX 6600 XT delivers 15% better performance than the RTX 3060 on average with max settings.

AMD claims that its new GPU delivers 125 FPS gaming “across a wide range of modern AAA titles.” The graphics card also features AMD FidelityFX, AMD Smart Access Memory, AMD Infinity Cache, and DirectX 12 Ultimate support.

Like many GPUs at the moment, when the RX 6600 XT launches, it’s expected to be difficult to find in stock. AMD said to the press, “we’re doing our best to get supply, but the demand is unprecedented, and also the supply constraints are real, so we are working with those situations at hand.”
