After months of speculation, AMD finally announced and released their new Radeon 6000 line of graphics cards late last year.
However, they also were prone to some bots, but not as bad as NVIDIA, with many happy customers installing their 6800, 6800XT or even 6900 into their PC.
Now that AMD are working to replenish stock, there's been a leak of a lower variant that's soon to be appearing apparently, with a '6700' model coming.
With that, here's how it may stack up with its other 6000 brethren's, in specs and most importantly, in price.
As reported by 'Cowcotland', the card looks to be built upon a 'Navi 22 XL' architecture; a lower-cost variant of what's in the other Radeon 6000 cards.
While the look of the card will still contain the three-fan design, it should mean that the card will be slightly smaller than its higher-end variants, resulting in more space in your PC case, alongside lower wattage requirements.
While we have links to the other cards in the Radeon 6000 lineup which can be found below, the potential specs for the 6700 looks to be just as competitive to their rival NVIDIA GeForce 3060:
- 12GB GDDR6 Memory
- 2600 compute processor
- 192-bit memory bus
- 384GB/s bandwidth
As we look at the Radeon 6800 cards, they are priced around the £699 mark, which are still competitive compared to the 30 Series of NVIDIA GPU products.
It won't be a stretch to expect a £599 price point for the 6700, which could undercut the NVIDIA cards further, while bringing out a slightly-faster card.
This is where it feels slightly odd. With NVIDIA rumoured to be on the verge of releasing more of their 30 series cards as soon as next week, AMD are apparently looking to release the 6700 in March.
Competitively it may be too slow, giving NVIDIA a two-month head start. However, with stock being the main theme of this GPU generation, it may come to be in AMD's favour when March comes, with a plentiful supply of the 6700, and perhaps other variants yet to be leaked.
