AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Linux Performance
At the start of March AMD announced the Radeon RX 6700 XT as their new RDNA2 graphics card starting out at $479 USD. Tomorrow the RX 6700 XT is going on sale while today marks the embargo lift on reviews. We have been testing the Radeon RX 6700 XT over the past two weeks and have up our initial Linux support experience and gaming benchmark results to share.
The Radeon RX 6700 XT is AMD's new RDNA2 offering that offers 40 compute units, 2560 stream processors, 96MB of infinity cache, and 12GB of GDDR6 video memory on a 192-bit interface. Pricing will start out at ~$479 USD and should be available tomorrow, retail stock permitting - AMD insisted on the call they have been working to ensure sufficient supplies are available.
The Radeon RX 6700 XT aims to take on NVIDIA's RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070 graphics cards. Of course, under Linux it can be a very different equation. This card is primarily designed as a 1440p gaming graphics card.
