AMD to announce new Radeon RX 6000 GPU on March 3

It's been quite the three months for AMD. Following the announcement of the RX 6000 series in October, the company released the RX 6800 and 6900 XT in November and December, respectively as the successor to the RX 5000 series.

This release of GPUs came as AMD was also responsible for manufacturing the custom Zen 2 CPUs found in both the Xbox Series X and PS5 consoles, resulting in stock shortages and an executive order investigation from President Joe Biden.

However, the company is not slowing down its plans for 2021, and is set to announce its next big graphics card next week...

What will AMD reveal?

While nothing is confirmed, AMD is expected to reveal the RX 6700 GPU - a midrange graphics card that should rival the RTX 3060, which launched today. We'd expect to hear more about the specs for the 6700 along with its price and release date.

In announcing the event, Radeon tweeted: "On March 3rd, the journey continues for #RDNA2." While this could just be a nod to the architecture used in the RX 6000 line of GPUs, we could also see further updates on RDNA 2 for its upcoming line of laptops.

This tweet also included a GIF of what we believe to be the RX 6700 card with its open, dual axial fans.

This will be the latest instalment of AMD's 'Where Gaming Begins' series of announcements, following previous reveals of the Ryzen 5000 and other RX 6000 GPUs. There has been no indication of how long the event will last, but Episode 1 and 2 of 'Where Gaming Begins' lasted for 24 minutes, so we'd predict it should be around that mark.

You should be able to watch the event when it goes live from AMD's events page here, along with a livestream on the AMD YouTube channel here.
