AMD just announced the Radeon RX 6700 XT, its latest graphics card targeting 1440p gaming. Here’s an in-depth look at all of its specs / features.
AMD has just introduced its latest graphics card, the Radeon RX 6700 XT. Just a few months ago, Nvidia announced its next generation of graphics cards. Since then, anticipation has been high for the next addition.
There’s been a lot of talk lately about graphics cards, and unfortunately, it hasn’t all been good news. While announcements for new PC components are always exciting, those announcements now come with a big caveat. Among resellers, crypto miners, and people who just want to upgrade their aging gaming PCs, the graphics card inventory has been abysmal for a while. It remains to be seen if AMD can keep up with the likely high demand it will have for the Radeon RX 6700 XT, but assuming someone can actually get their hands on it, they will be in for a real treat.
the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is marketed as a product that “redefine gaming with 1440p resolution” And looking at the spec sheet, it certainly seems capable of doing that. AMD built the Radeon RX 6700 XT using AMD’s 7nm process and RDNA 2 gaming architecture. With these things combined, AMD promises a “optimal combination of performance and energy efficiency”. There are a total of 40 compute units, 12 GB of GDDR6 memory, and a 96 MB infinite cache that allows up to 2.5 times more bandwidth compared to traditional architectures.
The best features of the Radeon RX 6700 XT
Ray tracing has become a standout feature in PC gaming lately and as expected the Radeon RX 6700 XT fully supports it, specifically the DirectX Raytracing (DXR) standard. This also works in conjunction with AMD FidelityFX, which is an open source program that enables even better visuals in the 40+ games that currently support it. Along with amazing graphics, AMD also promises excellent performance. Part of this is due to the AMD Radeon Anti-Lag feature that helps decrease input-to-screen response times. In other words, all titles should be as fast and responsive as possible. Thanks to the Radeon RX 6700 XT’s support for HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4, gamers get the best of both worlds as the standards support 4K @ 120Hz and 8K @ 60Hz.
All of this is coupled with the price of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT. AMD is targeting an MSRP of just $ 479, which is very impressive considering everything the RX 6700 XT brings to the table. However, as mentioned above, it is now a wait-and-see game whether or not AMD will be able to keep up with organic demand while simultaneously battling resellers. It’s something Nvidia has struggled with for months for its latest graphics card, so now all eyes are on AMD to see how it will handle the current market situation.
