AMD has finally announced its long-awaited RX 6700 XT graphics card, a more mid-range GPU that rounds out its new RX 6000 series. This new graphics card is based on the AMD RDNA 2 gaming architecture and packs 96MB of high-performance AMD Infinity Cache, 12GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory, and AMD Smart Access Memory which lets a Ryzen CPU directly access the GPU’s VRAM for faster performance.
Thanks to this, AMD promises that the RX 6700 XT is the GPU to beat for 1440p gaming, with AMD claiming that the GPU can run up to 165 FPS in select esports titles at 1440p.
“Modern games are more demanding than ever, requiring increasing levels of computing horsepower to deliver the breathtaking, immersive experiences gamers expect,” said Scott Herkelman, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. “The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card hits the sweet spot for 1440p gaming. For most gamers still playing on three-to-four-year-old graphics cards, it is the perfect upgrade solution designed to deliver incredible visuals and no-compromises, high-refresh 1440p gaming performance at maximum settings.”
