Where to buy Radeon RX 6700 XT Graphics Cards

18th March 2021

Today sees the launch of the all-new AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Graphics Cards. Powered by AMD RDNA 2 architecture, these GPUs are engineered to deliver ultra-high frames and powerhouse 1440p resolution gaming. As part of the Radeon RX 6000 Series, the 6700 XT has been engineered to offer new levels or power, efficiency, performance and features.

  • Release date: 18th March 2021
  • Architecture: RDNA 2
  • Compute Units: 40
  • Core count: 2560
  • Memory: 12GB GDDR6

Technical Specifications

The RX6700 XT features 12GB GDDR6 memory, 2560 cores, 40 compute units and a GPU Boost frequency of up to 2581 MHz. Want to experience serious 1440p gaming? Look no further. Ultra-high frame rates ensure you'll dominate the game, and you can finally say goodbye to lag. There's nothing better than crystal clear, gaming visuals, right? Well, technologies such as Direct X 12 Ultimate and AMD FidelityFX, realistic lighting, shadows and reflections are ready to blow your mind.

AMD RDNA 2

So, what exactly is RDNA 2? AMD RDNA 2 uses an enhanced compute unit, a new visual pipeline and an all-new AMD Infinity Cache to introduce significant architecture advancements. By doing this, AMD enables high-resolution gaming performance and vivid visuals.

AMD Infinity Cache is an all-new cache level that enables high bandwidth performance at low latency and power. It allows AMD to double the memory bandwidth and reduce power consumption while using a narrower 256-bit interface. In a nutshell, AMD Infinity Cache acts as a huge bandwidth amplifier, delivering up to 3.25x the effective bandwidth of 256-bit 12 Gbps GDDR6.

Hardware-accelerated raytracing is another feature new to the AMD RDNA 2 compute unit. It involves the implementation of a high-performance ray-tracing acceleration architecture ('the Ray Accelerator'). This handles the intersection of rays, providing an order of magnitude increase in intersection performance, compared to a software implementation.


Combine with AMD Ryzen 5000 Series

Perfect for those looking to upgrade their system, by combining the RX 6700 XT graphics cards and AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPUs, you'll be able to really experience the ultimate gaming advantage. AMD Ryzen 5000 series processors deliver game-changing performance with up to 16 cores, 37 threads and a boost clock of up to 4.9GHz, meaning you can crank up your settings and play at higher resolutions.

AMD Smart Access Memory Technology

For extra performance on your favourite gaming titles, AMD brings its Smart Access Memory technology to the RX 6700 XT graphics cards. In a conventional Windows system, processors are only able to access a fraction of graphics memory at once, which can limit system performance. AMD Smart Access Memory expands the data channel to harness the full potential of GPU memory, utilising the bandwidth of PCI Express to remove bottlenecks, increasing performance. All you need for this is an AMD 5000 series motherboard, AMD Ryzen 5000 series CPU (or select 3000 series) and an AMD Radeon RX 6000 XT series graphics card.
