While NVIDIA is all set to announce the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti in the next coming days, AMD hasn’t said anything about its budget RDNA 2 offerings as of now. However, we do have some preliminary info on the specifications of the Navi 22 GPU, namely the Radeon RX 6700 XT.
As per info shared by Igor’s Lab, the RX 6700 XT will have the ability to reach boost clocks as high as 2.95GHz, upon overclocking that is. It’s quite obvious that most GPUs won’t be able to reach this limit, but the bulk of them should be able to hit at least 2.7GHz which in itself is quite impressive. These high boost clocks indicate that AMD is going to include the Infinity Cache with its lower-end Navi 2x cards as well, though likely a cut-down version.
These BIOS files are from two AIB partners, with a power limit of 115%, the same as the RX 6800 series. The TGP (Total GPU Power) is pegged at 186W for one and 211W for the other, indicating a total board power (TBP) of around 200-225W. Considering that these are board partner variants, it’s possible we’re looking at factory OC models, and the reference clocks and TDP might be slightly lower.
It’s unclear whether AMD is going to launch reference models of the RX 6700 series, but seeing that these are the mid-range parts this time around, it’s unlikely as the company usually launches reference models for only its top-end parts.
