    Phoronix: Hands On With The AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT

    After the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT was announced last week and ahead of the retail availability next week, today AMD's "unboxing embargo" has expired for this new RDN2 graphics card focused on delivering high 1080p frame rates. The card we have been testing out under Linux is the ASRock Phantom Gaming RX 6600 XT.

    Nice to see not only Linux support printed in the box, but it be in alphabetical order, not put dead last like a leper you pretend that didn't exist.

      That's a great observation. It's also the rank of the operating systems in superiority. Linux > W7 > W10.

      But really, it very well could have been Windows 10, Windows 7, Linux ,,,,so I have a lot of respect for what Asrock did here. Respect.

        You mean Asrock. That box was made by them.

          You are right again, I misspoke. Good call. And good work by Asrock, more should follow suit.

            The exact same sentence in the exact same order was written on my Sapphire Nitro+ RX 580 box when I bought the card in 2017. I do wonder though, why is Windows 7 still written when AMD stopped supporting it with the 21.5.2 driver?

              500W or greater PSU? Is AMD ever going to make a low-power, discrete GPU again? That would be nice...

                That is standard talk by manufacturers. If you look out there, you can find those same 500W PSU requirement for sub-100W TPD GPUs too. People speculate that is because of the proliferation of bad quality PSUs.

                  This GPU TBP is rated 160W which means a good 350W PSU will suffice. AMD recommends 500W because they don't know which CPU you're going to use, so out of precaution they specified this huge number to accommodate for power hungry CPUs which can eat over 250W when overclocked. Class action lawsuits are never fun.

                    My Gigabyte 5600 XT also has Linux printed in the box.
