AMD will add a new card to its lineup which features the Radeon RX 6800, 6800 XT and 6900 XT models.
There is going to be some movement on the AMD side soon! On March 3, the Santa Clara-based foundry will launch a new version among its Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards featuring the new RDNA 2 architecture. The company does not specify whether it is an even higher-end model than the current RX 6800, 6800 XT and 6900 XT, or if it will be more of a less swift card. In its tweet, AMD simply gives us an appointment on March 3 at 5 p.m. (French time), “to discover this new member of the Radeon RX 6000 family.” Rumors have it that AMD may present an RX 6700 XT on March 3. It could embed a Navi 22 GPU with 40 computing units, and have 12 GB of GDDR6 memory as well as a 192-bit bus. It will of course be necessary to confirm all this or not next week.
The goal for AMD is to offer products that compete with Nvidia’s RTX cards. And the manufacturer has its work cut out for it because Nvidia is very responsive by regularly releasing new cards, such as its entry-level model RTX 3060 which is officially available today, but already out of stock.
