AMD Radeon RX 6700XT has a release date

According to a tweet from Cowcotland, AMD is set to launch its next graphics card on March 18th.

AMD Radeon RX 6700 series were already rumored to launch in March. We have only heard that the launch would happen in mid-March, but now it seems that the date has already been confirmed by Cowcotland. AMD would launch its next graphics card based on RDNA2 architecture on March 18th (Thursday). This means that the graphics card will still fit into Q1 2021 launch window that was speculated for a long time.

AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card will be the manufacturer’s first to feature Navi 22 GPU. This is an upper mid-range processor that will also be offered in gaming laptops. The full GPU is expected to have 40 Compute Units, which equals 2560 Stream Processors. The RX 6700 XT is expected to feature this configuration, leaving a cut-down variant for RX 6700 non-XT.

At this moment we only know that the RX 6700XT will have 12GB GDDR6 memory across a 192-bit memory bus. This model will likely compete with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 12GB which is now expected to launch on February 25th. There have been no leaks on performance or pricing yet. According to Cowcotland sources, RX 6700 XT will be ‘very limited’ at launch.
