Yesterday there was a rumor about the AMD Radeon RX 6600 series launching on August 11
. Coreteks now claims this is not true
, at least the part about the Radeon RX 6600 being available next month. The Radeon RX 6600 XT is expected next month but it appears the Radeon RX 6600 (non-XT) will not launch until September or October. Of course, it's also possible that both sources are correct. For example, AMD could paperlaunch both cards in August and not ship the Radeon RX 6600 until one or two months later.
AMD Navi24 set for an end-of-year release
Due to the GPU shortages, the rollout of new products has been pretty slow. AMD hasn't launched a ton of RDNA2-based products yet, even the Radeon RX 6700 (non-XT) is still missing despite the Radeon RX 6700 XT launching four months ago.
Coreteks claims there's still a Navi24 on the horizon -- but this part won't hit the market until the end of this year. Navi24 will be the lowest-end offering in the Radeon RX 6000 series, it will succeed the Radeon RX 5500 lineup.
Radeon RX 6600 XTs are circulating
There's some more evidence of the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT being close to launch as VideoCardz
spotted photos of an unidentified Radeon RX 6600 XT video card. The photos were published on Chinese forums, they reveal a card with a budget-class dual-fan cooling solution and an aluminum fin array. Benchmark scores are also out, but of a test that isn't widely used outside China. Ludashi benchmark scores show the Radeon RX 6600 XT may trade blows with the NVIDIA GeForce RX 3070 Ti.
