AMD Radeon RX 6700: Navi 22 with 2,304 RDNA-2 shaders is now official

AMD Radeon RX 6700: Navi 22 mit 2.304 RDNA-2-Shadern ist jetzt offiziell

AMD has now officially added the Radeon RX 6700 to the range with the Navi 22 (“Navy Flounder”) graphics processor reduced to 2,304 RDNA-2 shaders, as it is also used on the Radeon RX 6700M, and the specifications of the latest graphics card are out announced to the Radeon family.

The Radeon RX 6700 is a Radeon RX 6700M

After two partner cards from Sapphire appeared a week ago with a graphics chip trimmed from 2,560 to 2,304 stream processors, 10 GB GDDR6 and 80 MB “Infinity Cache”, which for unknown reasons did not use the “RX” in the product name, AMD is doing now officially a Radeon RX 6700 secretly, quietly and officially via the associated product page and confirms the previously speculated specifications of the RDNA 2 graphics card – obviously the Radeon RX 6700 and Radeon 6700 are the same graphics card.

In a direct comparison to the Radeon RX 6700 XT with a full Navi 22 GPU, the Radeon RX 6700 is trimmed as follows.

Radeon RX 6700 XT → Radeon RX 6700
  • 2,560 shaders → 2,304 shaders (-10 percent)
  • 40 compute units → 36 compute units (-10 percent)
  • 12 GB GDDR6 @ 16 Gbps → 10 GB GDDR6 @ 16 Gbps (-17 percent)
  • 96 MB Infinity Cache → 80 MB Infinity Cache (-17 percent)
  • 192 bit memory IF → 160 bit memory IF (-17 percent)

The typical board performance, the so-called Typical Board Power (TBP), drops from 230 to 175 watts, which, in addition to the cut in the GPU, is also likely to be due to the reduced average game clock from 2,424 MHz to 2,174 MHz.

With Sapphire without RX, in the current driver too

Both AMD’s exclusive partner Sapphire and the manufacturer itself don’t look particularly happy here. The Sapphire graphics cards without the “RX” in the name including the corresponding cardboard boxes are already on the market and even that AMD Adrenalin driver still carries the model without the RX suffix.
