Radeon 6700 with 2304 cores.

Some interesting post-mining equipment is now showing up on the second-hand market. A card that was heavily used (in mining) has recently been spotted. This is the first time this model has been pictured. This XFX Radeon graphics card is a highly customized triple-fan model that somehow never made its way to the market.

The product labels confirms that this is Radeon RX 6700 XL with 10GB VRAM. This model has a complicated history, but the long story short, these cards did not make their way to the customer market initially. AMD has been supplying the cut-down Navi 22 GPUs to their board partners, but they had different plans than selling them to gamers. Instead, the vast majority of RX 6700 XL/non-XT cards were sold directly to the cryptominers. Only around June this year, AMD formally introduced RX 6700, but that’s after they were sold as ‘BC-2235 mining cards for more than a year.

Unlike Sapphire, who made a formal announcement of their RX 6700 non-XT GPUs, XFX has no even confirmed that such a model even exists.  The product label confirms its SKU and memory config. There is some confusion around the series, though. The cooler clearly says QICK, but labels says SWFT (309) – those are two different series under XFX brand.

This particular model has dual power connectors, most likely dual 8-pin and 2.5-slot cooler design. It would be an interesting card for budget gaming these days, especially in response to Intel Arc A7 GPUs coming to the market very soon. In case you see one of those, and even consider buying one, just remember these cards were used for cryptomining and such Rdeon model does not officially exist in XFX lineup.
