AMD Radeon RX 6700 may only arrive in March | Rumor

The AMD Radeon RX 6700 graphics cards could debut on the market only in March, this is what the recent cowcotland report suggests which, although unofficially, clearly denies the most recent rumors that indicated CES 2021 or in any case the month of January as a possible launch window for these GPUs.

In reality – considering that we are very close to the CES in Las Vegas – in the last few days no relevant news has emerged on the Radeon RX 6700, products that, if close to launch, would at least appear on the various benchmark databases around the world. If we add to this the silence on the part of AMD and the lack of any kind of technical detail, the thesis of the French colleagues does not seem so risky.

According to reports, the new AMD Radeon RX 6700 and Radeon RX 6700 XT will arrive at the end of March , while the data leaked last November are confirmed for the technical specifications. Leading AMD’s mid-range proposals will be the Navi 22 GPU , proposed in the two variants XT and XL: the first is credited with 40 CU and 2560 Stream Processor, while for the younger sister Navi 22 XL we have no references, it is assumed however a chip of at least 32 CU and 2048 Stream Processor.

Both models instead will be equipped with 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM , a feature that most likely influenced the NVIDIA plans, running for cover with the GeForce RTX 3060 ULTRA 12GB (just unveiled by ASUS). At this point, if the news were confirmed, we cannot exclude that NVIDIA may similarly postpone the launch of the new RTX 3060 ULTRA, a product that undoubtedly would make sense, but would clash exclusively with its sister GeForce RTX 3060 TI presented at december.
