AMD's Radeon RX 6700 XT teased with 12GB of memory and a Q1 launch date

We already know that AMD has new RDNA 2 graphics cards launching in the first half of 2021, AMD confirmed this themselves at CES 2021, refusing to commit to a firmer, more precise release schedule. 

Today, Andreas Schilling, an Editor at HardwareLuxx, revealed brand markings for AMD's Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card, a GPU which will reportedly feature 12GB of VRAM and target 1440p resolutions. Schilling also teased that this graphics card could launch in Q1, further solidifying the RX 6700 XT's already rumoured March 2021 launch date. 

With 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM, the Radeon RX 6700 XT will likely feature a 192-bit memory bus, placing the graphics card in direct competition with Nvidia's RTX 3060 GPU. AMD's card should feature a bandwidth advantage, assuming that AMD implements an Infinity Cache within the graphics card, giving the graphics card more effective memory bandwidth. 

Other recent rumours have suggested that AMD's Radeon RX 6700 XT will feature 40CUs, giving the GPU 2560 stream processors. This would give the GPU the same CU/stream processor count as AMD's Radeon RX 5700 XT. AMD's RDNA 2 architecture will allow AMD's RX 6700 XT to handily outperform its predecessor, even without a boosted CU count. Comparing the Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 6700 XT will also prove to be a useful comparison point, as it will highlight the direct benefits of AMD's RDNA 2 architecture.

40CUs is a rather significant cut from 6800's 60.Quote

There were early rumours of the 6700XT GPU clocking higher though.Quote

I can't wait for GPUs etc to get back in stock, but shortages are simply a reality in today's market. Even carmakers are finding it hard to get enough chips.Quote
