AMD’s graphics card Radeon RX 6700 XT, which could be the next Big Navi, is expected to launch in March.

What can we look forward to?

The news spread fast over the internet as the inside unnamed source yesterday confirmed that AMD is launching a new graphics card, Radeon RX 670 XT, on March 18th. The new card is going to be based on a NAVI 22 XL GPU. It will have 12 GB video memory and a 192-bit memory bus. At the moment, the 128-bit memory bus is standard, so RX 6700 XT will be able to exchange data faster with the CPU and other internal components. Radeon RX 6700 XT will supposedly be available in MBA and Custom versions, and it’s not yet sure whether a non-XT model will be released as well.

This card aims to compete with NVIDIA’s mid-range GPUs, or GeForce RTX 3070, to be more precise, which currently holds the place as the best buy in its class of around $500 range price. GeForce RTX 3070 launched at the end of October last year, and it’s the third most powerful GeForce 30-series gaming graphics card based on the Ampere architecture. Since it features 5888 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR6 memory, it’s considered quite a powerful gaming graphics card, and it offers great support for a high-resolution monitor or VR headset.
