Radeon RX 6600: Perfect For 1080P Gaming At Maximum Details.

Surprise! AMD just unveiled the $329* Radeon RX 6600, a new mid-range 1080p gaming GPU that should be available at Amazon, Best Buy, Micro Center, and Newegg as soon as this story is published at 9AM ET.

OK: If you’re reading these words, it’s safe to assume you obtained a new GPU or a jolt of frustration.

It’s extremely hard to find a good deal on these graphics cards.

If you’ve read about AMD’s $379* Radeon RX 6600 XT, you’ll know that we already considered it an entry-level GPU.

The RX 6600X is a 6200 series card with the same GPU, but four less compute units (28 instead of 32), somewhat slower clock speeds, and lower power consumption of just 132 watts.

In general, AMD claims a 10 to 15 percent performance difference between the 6600 and 6600 XT, but it’d rather you look at the 23-percent boost over Nvidia’s RTX 2060 – assuming you’re using Smart Access Memory aka Resizable BAR with a suitable CPU and game, anyhow.

Unfortunately, most of AMD’s GPU board partners haven’t yet taken full advantage of the RX 6600’s decreased power usage.

You should be able to get a great deal of information about the AMD RX 6600 now, and we’ll add a few of their judgments later in the day.

“Healthy,” as we’ll see, is a difficult term to define.
