AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT come with 12GB GDDR6 memory
Radeon RX 6700 XT is designed to compete against NVIDIA’s GA104 and GA106 GPU SKUs, designed for 1440p gaming, with a 12GB GDDR6 VRAM configuration. The memory communicates over a 192-bit bus and will feature a Navi 22 GPU configured for 40 CU in total, with 2560 maximum cores.
It should also be noted that the RX 6700 XT will feature the Navi 22 XT variant as opposed to the Navi 22 XL architecture of the Radeon RX 6700, which is likely to feature lower CU and TDP values.
Unfortunately, for the moment no additional details have been shared about its possible starting price, although as sources close to the company claim that we can expect the official announcement of the Radeon RX 6700 XT sometime in the first half of this year.
