The PowerColor RX 6600 Fighter isn’t bare-bones as such, but it’s very much all you actually need a graphics card design to be, instead of one with the extra frills one expects from a higher priced offering. Two curved blade fans, big heatsink, copper heat pipes, done.

You don’t realise how quickly you get used to things until they aren’t there. GPU backplates are no so ubiquitous that to see a card without one, with all the solder and connections open to the elements, somehow feels transgressive. All cards like this though are designed to give your monitor all it can handle, rather than looking good sitting in your case.

Being a card at the affordable end of the Radeon range the RX 6600 only requires a single PCIe 8 pin power input.

Lastly at the business end of the Fighter we find the familiar AMD selection of a single HDMI and three DisplayPorts. We like the black backplate too, although your mileage may vary.
