Another AMD rumor. Rumors are circulating around the web about a possible announcement from AMD on July 30. VideoCardz writes AMD has allegedly picked Chinajoy 2021 expo in Shanghai, China as the launch venue for its new mid-range card.

Launch on August 11

The event will be a paperlaunch. Tech sites will reportedly be allowed to post unboxing videos on August 6 and the actual launch of the Radeon RX 6600 XT is said to be August 11.
AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT is a Navi 23 XT-based model with 32 Compute Units (2048 Stream Processors). This model will debut with 8GB GDDR6 memory with a 128-bit memory bus.

How much will it really cost?

The pricing of the card remains a mystery. Neowin claims AMD will go for a MSRP of $349 for the Radeon RX 6600 XT and that the Radeon RX 6600 should end up at $299. The latter is expected to be launched at a later point.

French tech site Cowcotland on the other hand heard street prices of the Radeon RX 6600 XT will be more in the "499EUR to 549EUR" range. The site also heard from its sources that the supply of the Radeon RX 6600 XT isn't as good as some other sites (or YouTubers) recently mentioned.
