AMD has already entered the current graphics card competition with the release of the Radeon RX 6800, the RX 6800 XT, and the Radeon RX 6900 XT GPUs, aimed at 4K gaming. The company is now planning to introduce the mid-tier RDNA 2 GPU called the RX 6700 XT.
The red team is expected to announce the Radeon RX 6700 XT by the end of Q1 2021. The graphics card is expected to feature a full-blown Navi 22 GPU and 2560 stream processors. There is also word that AMD is offering AIBs with two Navi 22 XT GPUs, one of them which is meant for overclocked graphics cards.

Recently, Andreas Schilling from HardwareLuxx had leaked some information, including what appears to be the official logo of the Radeon RX 6700 XT GPU. The tweet post mentions that the Radeon RX 6700XT could have 12GB GDDR6 RAM and is designed for 1440p gaming.
The Radeon RX 6700 XT will be the direct successor of the previous Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU that was also known for its excellent 1440p gaming at an affordable price. Other features expected for the new RX 6700 XT includes 40 compute units and a 192-bit memory bus. We can also expect AMD to announce the Radeon 6700 non-XT variant.
