ASUS’ RX 6700 Phoenix 12GB spotted – AMD’s next Radeon GPU?

Videocardz has spotted that a Radeon RX 6700 (non-XT) graphics card has appeared on an ASUS listing over at the Eurasian Economic Commission (ECC). This graphics card listing reveals ASUS’ RX 6700 (non-XT) Phoenix 12GB, an unannounced graphics card from AMD. 

AMD’s RX 6700 XT is due to launch on March 18th, and it will ship with aggressive clock speeds and a high power limit. AMD’s reference RX 6700 XT will be available with a Total Board Power of 230 watts, a mere 20 watts behind AMD’s RX 6800. 

Based on these specifications, we expect AMD’s RX 6700 (non-XT) to ship with the same 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM as the Radeon RX 6700 XT, the same 96MB of Infinity Cache and a significantly lower power limit. We also expect that the Radeon RX 6700 (non-XT) will feature fewer compute units. 

We estimate that the RX 6700 (non-XT) will feature 2304 stream processors, matching its last-generation counterpart, the Radeon RX 5700. With this in mind, a similar power limit of 180 watts also seems plausible. If these predictions are accurate, AMD’s RX 6700 will not be far behind its XT counterpart in terms of CU count, making power the main factor that will give the graphics card lower performance levels. 

So far, ASUS’ Phoenix series of graphics cards have all featured single-fan cooling solutions, with the highest-end Phoenix graphics card (at the time of writing) being the RTX 2060 Phoenix. This supports our theory that the RX 6700 Phoenix will be a lower TDP graphics card within the sub-200W power category.

AMD currently targets its RX 6700 XT graphics card at high framerate 1440p gaming, a factor that should make the graphics card’s non-XT counterpart a great graphics card for more mainstream 1440p gaming performance.
