The core count remains the same but the clock speeds and power efficiency will be improved in the new RX 6700 series GPUs to deliver faster performance compared to the previous generation GPUs.
Patrick Schur also shares some information about the new graphics card series power requirements. The Navi 22 XT GPU will probably be used in RX 6700 XT graphics cards according to Patrick Schur.
The expected power requirements of this GPU will be 186W to 211W, which is lower compared to the 225W power consumption of the Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU.
On the other side, the Radeon RX 6700 (non-XT) will be powered by Navi 21 XL GPU. This graphics card’s power requirement would be 146W to 156W, which is lower compared to the Radeon RX 5700 (180W TBP).
Navi 22 GPU is paired with a memory bus of 192-bit. So the graphics cards which will be powered by this Navi 22 GPU, will come with a memory capacity of GDDR6 6GB or 12GB.
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Release Date
Board partners have got information from AMD that the Navi 22 GPU will be launched soon than the previously planned release date. The Radeon RX 6700 series graphics cards are expected to launch in January 2021.
