The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT includes more VRAM, and requires less power

Amd Radeon Rx 6700 Series graphics

Rumored AMD Radeon RX 6700 Series (JayzTwoCents) design.

The AMD Radeon RX 6000 series is She began to make herself a public After launching the Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT on November 18th. However, they are not the only graphics cards in the Radeon RX 6000 family. AMD’s high-end Radeon RX 6900 XT as well as the RX 6700 and 6700 XT are also slated to be released in the near future.

Supported by the AMD Navi 22 GPU, the two new RDNA 2 cards will contain up to 40 compute units which happen to be the same as the Navi 10 GPU from the original RDNA suite. While the 6700 was somewhat expected to be the direct successor to the 2019 5700 graphics cards – an idea that totaled but underscores the computing unity – there is still a lot of unknown regarding the new cards. Specifically, how the power consumption will be in conjunction with the built-in memory.

However, thanks to prof Twitter sharing From trusted source Patrick Shore, there are some new details about the last two cards.

According to Schur, the 6700 and 6700 XT will have up to 12GB of GDDR6 memory. From a power requirement point of view, the Radeon RX 6700 will require Thermal Design Power (TDP) between 146W and 156W. The RX 6700 XT will need a little more power in the 186W to 211W range.

AMD offers energy savings with better performance

When comparing the non-XT 6700 model to the last-generation RX 5700, users can see as low as 34W TDP. For the 6700 XT, this can reach 39W TDP with a minimum of 14W in power savings.

Other than the power and memory specifications, both cards will have a 192-bit memory bus, allowing for higher GDDR6 memory on the board. There is also an expectation that both cards will support the new AMD Infinity cache As well Smart Access Memory A feature that allows those with Ryzen 5000 CPUs to increase the memory that can be accessed between the CPU and GPU. Pair those with higher hourly speeds, and the overall performance of your graphics cards will see a noticeable improvement.

The Radeon RX 6700 and RX 6700 XT are expected to be launched in January 2021 and prices must be announced by AMD prior to release.
