AMD Radeon RX 6600
AMD started Radeon RX 6600 sales 13 October 2021 at a recommended price of $329. This is a high-end RDNA 2.0 architecture desktop card based on 7 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 8 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 GB/s are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 224.0 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is dual-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x8 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 190 mm. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 132 Watt.
It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at
percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of Radeon RX 6600. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Let's see how good Radeon RX 6600 is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
