We’re reporting on the news of AMD’s RX 6700 XT GPU, a smaller cut of the RX 6800 XT, RX 6800, and RX 6900 XT silicon, and covering its specs, price, release date, and more. We spent some time talking with AMD about the expectations of availability for the AMD RX 6700 XT video card, specifically asking it for details on how it’s intending to help gamers purchase the cards and mitigate the rush on supply. AMD has a few key items it’s doing here, all discussed in the video, but it’s also not intending to limit the hashrate as NVIDIA has done on its lower-end GPUs. The AMD RX 6700 XT vs. RTX 3070 & 3060 Ti will be the most direct comparison, with AMD SAM (Smart Access Memory) and NVIDIA ReBAR (as it comes out) marking a key battleground. AMD’s SAM has now been extended to Ryzen 3000 CPUs as well, previously only functional on AMD Zen 3 (Ryzen 5000) CPUs. Adding Ryzen 3600, 3700X, 3900 XT, et al. compatibility for SAM will be backdated to the 6800 XT, 6800, and 6900 XT as well, in addition to the 6700 XT.
