AMD is set to launch its two new GPUs in the RX 6000 lineup. One is the RX 6600 and the other one is the XT variant. While the non-XT variant has been delayed for a month or two, the XT version is set to launch on the 11th of August this year.
As usual, most of the time one or more retailers around the world list out the unreleased graphics cards for purchase. This time the RX 6600 XT was seen listed on a New Zealand retail site- PBTech.co.nz. These were the cards from PowerColor and at the time of writing, they don’t appear on the site.
As Videocardz has the screenshots, you can see what models PowerColor has readied for the launch-
- PowerColor Fighter AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT 8GB, Model- AXRX 6600XT 8GBD6-3DH
- PowerColor Hellhound AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT 8GB, Model- AXRX 6600XT 8GBD6-3DHL/OC
- PowerColor Red Devil AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT 8GB, Model- AXRX 6600XT 8GBD6-3DHE/OC
Pricing is unbelievably high. As Videocardz states, GPU pricing is usually higher in New Zealand than in other parts of the world but the price tag the retail site showed is even higher than it should be in New Zealand itself.
RX 6600 XT is most likely to sell for around $350-$400 but they were listed for a sky-high price of USD $850+ each. PBTech lists PowerColor Hellhound AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT at the same price, therefore it is most likely that they are placeholders.
