Portuguese retailer PCDiga Accidentally listed an unreleased AMD Radeon RX 6600 (non-XT) graphics card from Sapphire.Since then it has been pulled, but it is long enough Graphics card Make a screenshot and save the picture of the board. According to Videocardz, the expected release date is October 13th.
The circuit board in question belongs to the Pulse series, so it has a fairly moderate design and cooling system. However, although AMD’s Radeon RX 6600 should be more or less cheaper, the Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 6600 is listed at 589.90 Euros, including VAT (approximately US$560 without VAT). Keep in mind that the retail price of the Radeon RX 6600 XT in Europe is about 550 to 630 euros (535 to 614 US dollars excluding tax), so the list seems a bit exaggerated.
AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT The official price is $379, but the actual price is often much higher. Nonetheless, we expect that the official suggested retail price of non-XT will be lower, and it may compete head-on with Nvidia’s (theoretically priced) RTX 3060 at $329. We will have to wait for the release to see how the actual performance of the GPU is.
Sapphire’s Pulse Radeon RX 6600 (11310-01-20G) will use a lite version of AMD’s Navi 23 GPU, with 28 CUs and 1792 stream processors, a 32MB infinite cache and a 128-bit memory interface for connecting 8GB 16 GT/s GDDR6 memory. The card will be equipped with a dual-fan dual-slot cooling system, four display outputs (three DP 1.4, one HDMI 2.0) and an 8-pin auxiliary PCIe power connector.
The graphics card itself looks very small, more than Sapphire RX 6600 XT pulse. XT performed quite well in our tests and has enough space, so the streamlined design should be able to cope with lower-level GPUs. We don’t yet know the exact GPU clocks, but it is certain that they will not be higher than the XT models. It obviously has four CUs disabled, which means that its potential performance may be about 10% slower than the mature Radeon RX 6600 XT.
Check back in October, we should have a full review of the Radeon RX 6600.
