SANTA CLARA, Calif. 07/29/2021

AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) today announ짯ced the AMD Rade짯on꽓 RX 6600 XT gra짯phics card, desi짯gned to deli짯ver the ulti짯ma짯te high-frame짯ra짯te, high-fide짯li짯ty and high짯ly respon짯si짯ve 1080p gam짯ing experience.

The AMD Rade짯on RX 6600 XT gra짯phics card is built on breakth짯rough AMD RDNA꽓 2 archi짯tec짯tu짯re, the only gam짯ing archi짯tec짯tu짯re that spans from next-gene짯ra짯ti짯on desk짯top PCs, lap짯tops and con짯so짯les to mobi짯le devices and auto짯mo짯ti짯ve info짯tain짯ment sys짯tems. Offe짯ring 32 MB of high-per짯for짯mance AMD Infi짯ni짯ty Cache, 8 GB of high-speed GDDR6 memo짯ry, AMD Smart Access Memo짯ry and other advan짯ced fea짯tures, the AMD Rade짯on RX 6600 XT gra짯phics card is built for the ever-incre짯asing demands of modern games. It also sup짯ports the new cut짯ting-edge AMD Fide짯li짯ty짯FX Super Reso짯lu짯ti짯on open-source spa짯ti짯al ups짯ca짯ling solu짯ti짯on, which is desi짯gned to boost frame짯ra짯tes and deli짯ver high-qua짯li짯ty, high-reso짯lu짯ti짯on gam짯ing experiences.

The AMD Rade짯on RX 6600 XT gra짯phics card offers up to 15 per짯cent hig짯her per짯for짯mance on avera짯ge with max set짯tings across sel짯ect AAA titles com짯pared to the com짯pe짯ti짯ti짯on1. It also pro짯vi짯des 125 FPS on avera짯ge across a wide ran짯ge of modern AAA titles2, pushing the boun짯da짯ries of main짯stream gam짯ing by enab짯ling incre짯di짯ble, high-refresh rate 1080p per짯for짯mance and breath짯ta짯king visu짯al fidelity.

1080p has long been the most popu짯lar reso짯lu짯ti짯on for PC gam짯ing, and in 2020 more than two-thirds of the gam짯ing moni짯tors ship짯ped were at this reso짯lu짯ti짯on3, said Scott Her짯kel짯man, cor짯po짯ra짯te vice pre짯si짯dent and gene짯ral mana짯ger, Gra짯phics Busi짯ness Unit at AMD. 쏦owe짯ver, the most popu짯lar older-gene짯ra짯ti짯on 1080p gra짯phics cards can strugg짯le to even hit 60 FPS in modern games. The Rade짯on RX 6600 XT rai짯ses the bar for 1080p gam짯ing. It was spe짯ci짯fi짯cal짯ly desi짯gned to deli짯ver the ulti짯ma짯te 1080p gam짯ing expe짯ri짯ence for all gamers, offe짯ring power짯house per짯for짯mance and advan짯ced fea짯tures to bring beau짯tiful, com짯plex and hyper-rea짯li짯stic worlds to life.

RX-697
  7. Test짯ing done by AMD per짯for짯mance labs July 15, 2021 with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X CPU, 16GB DDR4-3600, ASRock Tai짯chi, Win10 Pro x64 19041.508,  Rade짯on RX 6600 XT GPU (Dri짯ver 21.6.1) com짯pa짯ring Rade짯on Boost ON v. OFF (50% Dyna짯mic reso짯lu짯ti짯on) in War짯frame. Per짯for짯mance may vary. RX-690
  8. Game clock is the expec짯ted GPU clock when run짯ning typi짯cal gam짯ing appli짯ca짯ti짯ons, set to typi짯cal TGP (Total Gra짯phics Power). Actu짯al indi짯vi짯du짯al game clock results may vary. GD-147
  9. Boost Clock Fre짯quen짯cy is the maxi짯mum fre짯quen짯cy achie짯va짯ble on the GPU run짯ning a burs짯ty workload. Boost clock achie짯va짯bi짯li짯ty, fre짯quen짯cy, and sus짯taina짯bi짯li짯ty will vary based on seve짯ral fac짯tors, inclu짯ding but not limi짯t짯ed to: ther짯mal con짯di짯ti짯ons and varia짯ti짯on in appli짯ca짯ti짯ons and workloads.
