– Harn­essing bre­akthrough AMD RDNA™ 2 gaming archi­tec­tu­re, high-per­for­mance AMD Infi­ni­ty Cache and 12GB of high-speed GDDR6 memo­ry, new AMD Rade­on™ RX 6700 XT gra­phics cards pro­vi­de up to 2X hig­her per­for­mance in select tit­les than cur­rent instal­led base of older-genera­ti­on gra­phics cards1

– Power­ful blend of ray­t­ra­cing with AMD Fide­li­ty­FX2com­pu­te and ras­te­ri­zed effects ele­va­tes visu­als to new levels of fide­li­ty, deli­vering ama­zing life­li­ke, cine­ma­tic gaming experiences –



AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today intro­du­ced the AMD Rade­on RX 6700 XT gra­phics card, pro­vi­ding excep­tio­nal per­for­mance, stun­nin­gly vivid visu­als and advan­ced soft­ware fea­tures to rede­fi­ne 1440p reso­lu­ti­on gaming.

Repre­sen­ting the cut­ting edge of engi­nee­ring and design, AMD Rade­on RX 6700 XT gra­phics cards harness bre­akthrough AMD RDNA 2 gaming archi­tec­tu­re, 96MB of high-per­for­mance AMD Infi­ni­ty Cache, 12GB of high-speed GDDR6 memo­ry, AMD Smart Access Memo­ry1 and other advan­ced tech­no­lo­gies to meet the ever-incre­a­sing deman­ds of modern games. Deli­vering up to 2X hig­her gaming per­for­mance in select tit­les1 with ama­zing new fea­tures com­pa­red to the cur­rent instal­led base of older-genera­ti­on gra­phics cards and pro­vi­ding more than 165 FPS in select esports tit­les2, the AMD Rade­on RX 6700 XT gra­phics card pushes the limits of gaming by enab­ling incredi­ble, high-refresh 1440p per­for­mance and breath­ta­king visu­al fidelity.

Modern games are more deman­ding than ever, requi­ring incre­a­sing levels of com­pu­ting hor­se­power to deli­ver the breath­ta­king, immer­si­ve expe­ri­en­ces gamers expect,” said Scott Her­kel­man, cor­po­ra­te vice pre­si­dent and gene­ral mana­ger, Gra­phics Busi­ness Unit at AMD. “The AMD Rade­on RX 6700 XT gra­phics card hits the sweet spot for 1440p gaming. For most gamers still play­ing on three-to-four-year-old gra­phics cards, it is the per­fect upgrade solu­ti­on desi­gned to deli­ver incredi­ble visu­als and no-com­pro­mi­ses, high-refresh 1440p gaming per­for­mance at maxi­mum settings.”

Taking advan­ta­ge of this incredi­ble per­for­mance, more than 40 sys­tem buil­ders and OEMs are expec­ted to launch high-per­for­mance desk­top PCs powe­red by the new gra­phics card. HP is expec­ted to refresh two desk­top gaming sys­tems this Spring – the HP OMEN 25L and 30L – fea­turing AMD Rade­on RX 6700 XT gra­phics cards and AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Seri­es Desk­top Processors.

Gamers are rou­ti­nely on the loo­kout for the latest cut­ting-edge tech­no­lo­gies to excel and immer­se them­sel­ves in their favo­ri­te games,” said Judy John­son, gaming plat­form head, HP Inc. “We’re thril­led to add the new AMD Rade­on RX 6700 XT gra­phics cards in our OMEN 25 and 30L Desk­tops to help power epic adven­tures across the globe.”

Exceptional 1440p Performance, Stunning Visuals and Unmatched Gaming Experiences

The AMD Rade­on RX 6700 XT gra­phics card is built on 7nm pro­cess tech­no­lo­gy and AMD RDNA 2 gaming archi­tec­tu­re, desi­gned to deli­ver the opti­mal com­bi­na­ti­on of per­for­mance and power effi­ci­en­cy. Addi­tio­nal fea­tures and capa­bi­li­ties include:

  • AMD Infi­ni­ty Cache – 96MB of last-level data cache on the GPU die pro­vi­des up to 2.5X hig­her band­width at the same power level as tra­di­tio­nal archi­tec­tures3 to pro­vi­de hig­her gaming performance.
  • AMD Smart Access Memo­ry – Unlocks hig­her per­for­mance when pai­ring AMD Rade­on RX 6000 Seri­es gra­phics cards with AMD Ryzen 5000 or select Ryzen 3000 Seri­es Desk­top Pro­ces­sors and AMD 500-seri­es mother­boards. Pro­vi­ding AMD Ryzen pro­ces­sors with access to high-speed GDDR6 gra­phics memo­ry can deli­ver a per­for­mance uplift of up to 16 per­cent4.
  • 12GB High-Speed GDDR6 VRAM – Desi­gned to hand­le the incre­a­sing tex­tu­re loads and grea­ter visu­al deman­ds of today’s modern games at hig­her reso­lu­ti­ons and max set­tings, the new gra­phics card with 12GB of GDDR6 of memo­ry allows gamers to easi­ly power through today and tomorrow’s deman­ding AAA titles.
  • AMD Fide­li­ty­FX – Inte­gra­ted into more than 40 games and coun­ting, AMD Fide­li­ty­FX is an open-source tool­kit of visu­al enhan­ce­ment effects for game deve­lo­pers avail­ab­le at AMD GPUO­pen. Opti­mi­zed for AMD Rade­on gra­phics, it inclu­des a robust collec­tion of ras­te­ri­zed ligh­t­ing, shadow and reflec­tion effects that can be inte­gra­ted into the latest games with mini­mal per­for­mance overhead.
  • Direc­tX® Ray­t­ra­cing (DXR) – AMD RDNA 2 archi­tec­tu­re-based gra­phics cards are opti­mi­zed to deli­ver real-time ligh­t­ing, shadow and reflec­tion rea­lism with DXR, pro­vi­ding a stun­ning gaming expe­ri­ence. When pai­red with AMD Fide­li­ty­FX, deve­lo­pers can com­bi­ne ras­te­ri­zed and ray-traced effects to pro­vi­de an ide­al balan­ce of image qua­li­ty and gaming performance.
  • AMD Rade­on Anti-Lag5 – Now with sup­port for the Direc­tX 12 API, AMD Rade­on Anti-Lag decre­a­ses input-to-dis­play respon­se times, making games more respon­si­ve and offe­ring a com­pe­ti­ti­ve edge in gameplay.
  • AMD Rade­on Boost6 – Now with sup­port for Varia­ble Rate Shading, AMD Rade­on Boost deli­vers up to a 27 per­cent per­for­mance incre­a­se7 during fast-moti­on gaming sce­n­a­ri­os by dyna­mi­cal­ly redu­cing image reso­lu­ti­on or by vary­ing shading rates for dif­fe­rent regi­ons of a frame, incre­a­sing frame­ra­tes and flui­di­ty, and bols­te­ring respon­si­ve­ness with vir­tual­ly no per­cep­tu­al impact on image quality.

We’re exci­ted to part­ner with AMD to bring the latest, much-anti­ci­pa­ted ent­ry in the Resi­dent Evil fran­chise to PC gamers,” said Peter Fabia­no, pro­du­cer at Cap­com®. “With the power­ful Rade­on RX 6000 Seri­es gra­phics cou­pled with next-genera­ti­on fea­tures and tech­no­lo­gies, inclu­ding AMD Fide­li­ty­FX, ray­t­ra­cing and Varia­ble Rate Shading, gamers can expe­ri­ence the ulti­ma­te fight for sur­vi­val with visual­ly stun­ning, ins­a­nely detail­ed cha­rac­ters and envi­ron­ments and high-per­for­mance gameplay.”

Driving High-Octane Performance with Mercedes-AMG Petronas Esports Team

AMD also announ­ced a new col­la­bo­ra­ti­on with the Mer­ce­des-AMG Petro­nas Esports Team, the esports arm of the Mer­ce­des-AMG Petro­nas For­mu­la 1 Team. Mer­ce­des has selec­ted the power­ful com­bi­na­ti­on of AMD Rade­on RX 6000 Seri­es gra­phics cards, AMD Ryzen 5000 Seri­es Desk­top Pro­ces­sors and advan­ced AMD Rade­on Soft­ware tech­no­lo­gies to power their Esports gaming rigs, deli­vering the hig­hest frame­ra­tes, low-laten­cy game­play and the smoot­hest dri­ving expe­ri­ence, unlo­cking the dri­vers’ full poten­ti­al. AMD deli­vers an unmat­ched com­pe­ti­ti­ve edge in vir­tu­al racing.
