AMD Radeon RX 6700: New graphics card with benchmarks
With the Radeon RX 6700, AMD has a new gaming GPU on offer, and the first benchmarks are already available.
With the Radeon RX 6700, AMD offers a new GPU with 10 GB of memory.
With the Radeon RX 6700, AMD has now officially introduced a new graphics card based on RDNA2. The manufacturer lists a lot of technical data on its own product page. Accordingly, the GPU has 2,304 shaders and a 160-bit memory interface. The card has 10 GB of GDDR6 memory installed, plus an 80 MB Infinity Cache. The Radeon RX 6700 clocks at 2,174 or 2,450 MHz. A specified TDP of 175 watts is surprising in view of this data. The smaller GPU Radeon RX 6650 XT requires 10 watts more. The next larger model, the RX 6700 XT, can even draw 230 watts from the power supply.
Over 11,000 points in 3DMark
In addition, a first result for the Sapphire RX 6700 Pulse is available in 3DMark. There, the GPU achieved a GPU score of 11,166 points in the “Time Spy” test run with an adapted driver. If the power limit is set to maximum, even 11,414 points are possible. A slightly higher clock of 2,495 instead of 2,450 MHz on the Sapphire card, which is overclocked by default, is also responsible for this.
Price not yet known
As a result, the RX 6700 XT would be just 14 percent faster than Sapphire’s RX 6700. Compared to the RX 6650 XT, the new GPU achieves a 13 percent higher performance in 3DMark. Accordingly, the new graphics card would fit well into the portfolio of the manufacturer AMD. However, the price, which has not yet been announced, should have a strong influence on this consideration. However, AMD has not yet provided any information on this. A date for the Radeon RX 6700 has not yet been set either.
