NAVI23

The “Navi 23 XT” chip is not new; it is already in use as the Radeon RX 6600M graphics solution for notebooks, which was introduced with the Radeon RX 6800M and 6700M graphics solutions for laptops a few weeks ago. The majority of cards will use a dual-slot dual-fan cooler; they will include a single 8-pin PCI-Express graphics connection with a maximum power consumption of 160 watts. The Radeon RX 6600 XT features 2048 rather than 2560 stream processors or shader units and a memory interface decreased from 192 to 128 bits. AMD will initially offer the 6600 XT cards, followed by the 6600. The Radeon RX 6600 XT is to cost a rather extravagant 379 USD as a base reference product. Thus, you can expect board partner cards with custom designs and cooling to sit well above the 400 USD marker. We can already share that the pricing is the biggest culprit of this product series.
