It seems the official Aorus Spain Twitter account has perhaps inadvertently leaked the company's upcoming Radeon RX 6600 XT models. The handle today has tweeted about the new Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT series graphics cards that, at least for now, will be comprising two models, both of them being triple fan versions:
- Radeon RX 6600 XT EAGLE (OC)
- Radeon RX 6600 XT GAMING (OC)
And it seems the company has realized its mistake and the tweet (below) has since been removed, click here for a saved image copy of the tweet.
This also means that the official announcement related to the RX 6600 XT series is not too far away. While the cards are supposedly launching on the 11th of August, AMD is reportedly said to be unveiling the new Navi 23-based RX 6600 XT first at ChinaJoy 2021 that is being held at the Shanghai International Expo Center from July 30 till August 2 (via @greymon55).
The Radeon RX 6600 XT is purportedly priced at $349 MSRP while its RX 6600 is said to cost $50 less according to a source of ours. However it is rumored that AMD will only release the XT variant for now. The 6600 XT is expected to feature the full Navi 23 chip with 32 CUs or 2,048 stream processors. It will pack 32MB of on-die Infinity Cache and the GPU will be paired with 8GB of GDDR6 memory and fed by a 128-bit memory bus.
The Aorus Spain twitter account has also written that the RX 6600 XT series is being aimed at 1080p gaming, something our source had mentioned too.
