AMD has today revealed their next graphics card powered by the RDNA 2 architecture with the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, which they say is aimed at the "gaming enthusiast looking for maximum settings at 1440p and high-refresh competitive gameplay".

Here's the comparison for you against the other models:

  RX 6700 XT RX 6800 RX 6800 XT RX 6900 XT
Compute Units 40 60 72 80
Ray Accelerators 40 60 72 80
Cores 2,560 3,840 4,608 5,120
Boost clock 2,424MHz 2,105MHz 2,250MHz 2,250MHz

Price $479 $579 $649 $999

It will go available on March 18, with a price around $479. They mentioned how on day-1 they will be launching their own reference cards on their official store, plus their partners including ASRock, ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE and XFX will also have their cards available and various online stores will also be stocking them all on release day. Hopefully then, they won't see as many stock issues as we've seen with previous new releases from both AMD and NVIDIA.

Don't want to build your own system? AMD expect various OEMs to get building with them "in the coming months". They mentioned "more than 40" system builders are expected to launch systems with the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT.

AMD also said to expect more RX 6000 laptops to be announced "soon".

Ryzen 6000?

I thought they are scheduled for late 2021?
Ryzen 5000 has just be released, no?
Still waiting for a good Thinkpad configuration to be announced.

Corrected the text, it was supposed to be RX not Ryzen.

I just hope there will be any available with the crypto miners going crazy.

If only AMD could do something to the drivers to make it uninteresting for miners.

(sorry, couldn't resist )

oh look... more graphics cards that no one's going to be able to buy
I'm happy AMD have released more vapor hardware—I'm sure they're pre-sold-out.
The 6700 XT looks pretty sweet. If they could bring the TDP to 185W like the 5700 it would hit the sweetest spot. Although, like it has been mentioned, we'll need to wait until the mining craze is over.

I’m afraid at 230W this card will not be silent. Also it’s very expensive. Also it will not be available anywhere…
So hard to care about new tech announcements thanks to scalpers and crypto wankers

Yeah, and as mining limitations worked so well you get convinced that open source drivers aren't the way it's meant to be played.
