Due to the chip shortages, the launch of AMD's Radeon RX 6700 XT took longer than expected. But now the company has finally set a launch date. The red team scheduled a "Where Gaming Begins Episode: 3" livestream for March 3, 2021.

The firm will showcase its Radeon RX 6700 XT. Via a tweet, AMD shared the latest design of the reference card. It's a dual-fan card with three DisplayPort outputs and one HDMI port. No love for USB Type-C here.

The Radeon RX 6700 XT uses the Navi 22 GPU, with 2560 stream processors, according to the rumor mill. The card is expected to feature 12GB GDDR6 memory, which is the same as NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060.

It's unknown if AMD will also unwrap its Radeon RX 6700. The big problem at the moment is that it's very hard to meet demand and rolling out more SKUs just exacerbates the problem. Availability of the card will most likely be very low, at least not at reasonable prices.
