AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is currently making some noise on social media! Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060, the company’s competitor GPU, could have a hard time matching AMD’s new GPU.

LONDON, ENGLAND – MARCH 25: In this photo illustration the Social networking site Facebook is displayed on a laptop screen on March 25, 2009 in London, England. The British government has made proposals which would force Social networking websites such as Facebook to pass on details of users, friends and contacts to help fight terrorism.
According to Toms Guide‘s latest report, consumers are having a hard time grabbing an advanced GPU because of the ongoing pandemic. Online stores and retailers usually run out of stock because of the people’s high demand.
If you are one of them, then you already know how frustrating it is just to pre-order a high-end GPU. Nvidia and other giant GPU manufacturers are also having the same supply issue.
Although this is the case, Nvidia and other AMD competitors still find ways on how to compete against AMD. But, AMD still might have one trick up its sleeves.
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT’s specs
Radeon RX 6700 XT is considered AMD’s secret weapon right now. However, the company seems to be hiding in since it didn’t announce the new GPU in the previous CES 2021.

A “Mistral” supercomputer, installed in 2016, at the German Climate Computing Center (DKRZ, or Deutsches Klimarechenzentrum) on June 7, 2017 in Hamburg, Germany. The DKRZ provides HPC (high performance computing) and associated services for climate research institutes in Germany. Its high performance computer and storage systems have been specifically selected with respect to climate and Earth system modeling. With a total of 100,000 processor cores, Mistral has a peak performance of 3.6 PetaFLOPS.
Rumors claimed that AMD skipped the announcement because the manufacturer wants to make more improvements and upgrades on its new card’s stats as much as possible. It is currently doing this to match or even surpass Nvidia’s RTX 3060 Ti.
Although leaks and other speculations didn’t specify how powerful it really is, rumors claimed that people should not be surprised if it will be over 200W. Leaks also suggested that the new GPU model could be cheaper than its competitor.
But, cheap price is not the only factor that people are currently looking for. Consumers are also looking for high-end specs that could provide greater PC performance.
AMD’s RDNA 3
Aside from the alleged Radeon 6700 XT, AMD could also have another GPU on its lineup. According to Hot Hardware‘s latest report, the company’s upcoming Radeon Navi 3 or RDNA 3 GPU could have 10,240 Cores and a huge performance improvement.
Speculations suggested that the new RDNA 3 GPU could end up being a chipset-based GPU. It could also materialize with a multi-chip module design. This just shows that AMD is really taking the GPU war seriously.
