AMD launches Radeon RX 6600 for entry-level, mainstream 1080p gaming
AMD has launched its latest Radeon RX 6000 series GPU today - the Radeon RX 6600. It's an entry-level model that's priced with a US$329 SRP and will compete directly against NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060.
Unlike the RTX 3060, however, the card comes with 8GB or GDDR6 memory. The RX 6600 also comes with a Boost Clock at 2491MHz and 2044MHz for 'Game Clock'. With 28 Compute Units, this translates to 8.93 TFLOPs in peak single precision performance as compared to the 10.6 TFLOPs of its closest sibling, the Radeon RX 6600 XT.
Last but not least, it has a TGP of 160W - versus 170W for the RTX 3060.
The Radeon RX 6600 will not have a reference card from AMD, with the company relying on board partners including ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor and Sapphire to release their own custom cards. It is also expected to be available in pre-built systems from OEMs and system integrators beginning this month.
