GPU launches of AMD's and NVIDIA's latest architecture have been spaced out further in time than usual due to all the chip and component shortages. But it now looks like AMD is close to bringing its Radeon RX 6600 series to the market.

VideoCardz reports AMD included references to the Radeon RX 6600 and Radeon RX 6600 XT in a recent driver release. Both desktop GPUs are expected to feature the Navi 23 GPU.
Not much is known about the desktop Radeon RX 6600 series at this point though, but we have seen some leaks from the Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory office. It would appear that at least two AMD board partners believe that RX 6600 XT will feature 8GB GDDR6 memory. The configuration of the non-XT variant is not yet known, but it would probably be either 4GB or 8GB, considering Navi 23 GPU configuration.
According to the rumor mill, the Radeon RX 6600 XT may get 2048 shaders, a Boost of around 2900MHz and 8GB GDDR6 memory clocked at 16Gbps. The Radeon RX 6600 will be a cut-down model with 1792 shaders and 4/8GB GDDR6 memory clocked at 16Gbps. Both models are expected to use a 128-bit memory bus. An exact launch date is still unknown.
