Now that AMD has launched its Big Navi-based Radeon RX 6800 XT – our opinion here, and the slightly cheaper and slightly slower Radeon RX 6800 – our opinion here, it’s time for some Radeon RX 6700 series leaks.

We have a new tease from Patrick Schur, who tweeted a few details about the power goals of the Navi 22 GPU – which should see the new Radeon RX 6700 series arrive as an unbelievably value-for-money card game. We’re looking at around 40 compute units and the Navi 22 XT GPU powering the high-end Radeon RX 6700 XT.
AMD will keep the core count on the new Radeon RX 6700 XT the same as the Radeon RX 5700 XT, but it will benefit greatly from power efficiency, higher clock speeds, and raw performance – as well as a claimed 12GB RAM – 8GB on the RX 5700 XT.
We are looking at the Navi 22 XT with a power of 186 to 211 W, compared to 225 W on the Radeon RX 5700 XT based on Navi 10. The Radeon RX 6700 (non-XT) based on Navi 21 XL, will use between 146 and 156 W , which is much less than the 180W used on the Radeon RX 5700.
We expect the Radeon RX 6700 XT to ship with a faster 192-bit memory bus, so we can expect 6GB or 12GB of GDDR6 – with the Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards containing all two 16GB of RAM, then I would expect the Radeon RX 6700 series cards to all contain 12GB.
As for when we see AMD launch its new Radeon RX 6700 series cards, it looks like January 2021 will be the window – so expect some huge releases in January 2021 as NVIDIA has its new mid-range GeForce RTX 3060 Ti. range just around the corner …
