The card was teased back in November 2020 but confirmed by AMD in January 2021 for a release in March 2021 -- it seems March 18 could be the day. The same day the Zack Snyder's Justice League debuts on HBO Max, what a day. The new Radeon RX 6700 XT will be the first use of the Navi 22 GPU, and it'll pack 12GB of GDDR6 memory.

AMD's upcoming Navi 22 GPU will feature 40 Compute Units, so 2560 Stream Processors -- leaving room for a lower-end Radeon RX 6700 graphics card in non-XT form.

We are to expect 12GB of GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory bus, which will see the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT competing directly against yet another card you won't be able to buy -- NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 3060 which also features 12GB of GDDR6.
