AMD introduced the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics card, designed to deliver the ultimate high-framerate, high-fidelity, and highly responsive 1080p gaming experience.
The Radeon RX 6600 XT is built on breakthrough AMD RDNA 2 architecture, offering 32MB of AMD Infinity Cache and 8GB of GDDR6 memory, and bringing advanced feature mainstream gamers to meet the ever-increasing demands of modern games, including:
- AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution – An open-source spatial upscaling technology for game developers that offers up to 2.4X higher performance on average in “Performance Mode” compared to native 4K in select titles. FSR is supported on a wide range of AMD processors and GPUs, as well as competitor GPUs.
- AMD Smart Access Memory (SAM) – When pairing Radeon RX 6000 Series graphics with AMD Ryzen 5000 or select Ryzen 3000 Series Desktop Processors and AMD 500-series motherboards, SAM provides Ryzen processors with access to the GPU’s entire high-speed GDDR6 memory to deliver a significant performance uplift in select titles.
- Other advanced capabilities, including DirectX 12 Ultimate Support, AMD Radeon Anti-Lag and AMD Radeon Boost enable the new graphics card to deliver visually stunning, high-performance and highly responsive 1080p gaming experiences.
“1080p has long been the most popular resolution for PC gaming, and in 2020 more than two-thirds of the gaming monitors shipped were at this resolution,” “However, the most popular older-generation 1080p graphics cards can struggle to even hit 60 FPS in modern games. The Radeon RX 6600 XT raises the bar for 1080p gaming. It was specifically designed to deliver the ultimate 1080p gaming experience for all gamers, offering powerhouse performance and advanced features to bring beautiful, complex and hyper-realistic worlds to life.”
