There is a new Radeon RX 6600XT leak that seems to give us our first look at the upcoming AMD graphics card that should be released in the coming weeks.
The new AMD RX 6600XT card appears to have a dual-fan design with a large aluminum heat sink underneath, according to new photos that appeared on Chinese social media site Baidu this week. This is different from the design we saw a few weeks ago and looks more like the RX 6700XT.
As Videocardz notes, the card lacks a large fin array, so it’s more likely a low budget graphics card and the fact that it’s the XT variant might explain the dual fans. rather than the one that can be reserved for the RX 6600..
Could the AMD RX 6600XT beat the Nvidia RTX 3060 Ti?
In addition to photos of the supposed design of the AMD RX 6600XT, Baidu‘s poster also included screenshots of the benchmark results they claim to be from the RX 6600XT.
The tool in question, Ludashi, is not really used outside of China, but what we’re interested in is not so much the absolute score of the graphics card, but that it seems to beat the scores of the RTX 3060. Ti from Nvidia, the card that the Le RX 6600XT would directly compete with.
If those credentials hold true when the AMD RX 6600XT finally releases, AMD may have a real winner in its hands to help solidify its title as the champion of midrange and budget graphics cards.
