AMD has officially confirmed that they will be announcing a new RDNA 2 based graphics card on March 3rd, and from the looks of it, the red team is all set to launch the RX 6700 XT GPU.
AMD confirmed the launch date on its Twitter page, and the interesting part is that the company already posted an animation of the graphics card. The card definitely looks smaller than the current flagships such as Radeon RX 6800, the RX 6800 XT, and the RX 6900 XT. While AMD did not confirm which cards are to be announced, it was rumored earlier that the RX 6700 series launch would supposedly unveil two different cards: the Radeon RX 6700 XT and the Radeon RX 6700.

However, there are reports that AMD will only unveil the RX 6700 XT for now, and it seems the announcement of the RX 6700 non-XT model is delayed. That said, the Radeon RX 6700 XT is said to feature a full-sized Navi22 GPU and is expected to come with 2560 cores, 12GB GDDR6, and a 192-bit memory bus. The RX 6700 non-XT card is said to come with a cut-down version of the Navi22 GPU.
The new Radeon RX 6700 series is aimed to offer 2K gaming performances and is aimed to take on NVIDIA’s recent RTX 3060 Ti GPU release. Let’s see which card emerges as the best “sweet spot” mid-range GPU.
