AMD took the world by the storm with their release of the Ryzen processors, but on the GPU side, their game hadn't been the best. That changed when the red team launched the RX 5000 series graphics cards, and with the launch of the RX 6000 series, it's pretty obvious that AMD has something amazing to offer for gamers, both aspiring and veteran. The new cards are nothing short of impressive, and go toe-to-toe with the best offerings from the green team, giving them a run for their money. And today, we're gonna check out another high-end offering from the red team, the RX 6600 XT.

The Radeon RX 6600 XT is a beast of a GPU designed for 1080p gaming. It comes with 2048 Stream Processors, 8GB VRAM and a Boost Clock speed of up to 2593 MHz, making it a beefy card from AMD. And compared to the RX 6800 XT and the RX 6900 XT, it's pretty light too.

The Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT comes with a dual-slot, triple-fan design, with a silver-black shroud and the Gigabyte logo on the fans.

For display options, it comes with 2 DisplayPorts and 2 HDMI ports, which is a little different the standard array of display connectors i.e. 3 DisplayPorts and 1 HDMI. But, what we want to know is the performance. And boy, does the RX 6600XT perform well. Take a look at the benchmarks.

As you can see, the RX 6600XT has no trouble running any kind of game, churning out frame after frame without a sweat. RX 6600XT can easily hit 60+ FPS in any game at 1080p at High settings, no matter how resource-intensive it might be. Even in a game like Cyberpunk 2077, which is notorious for giving high-end rigs trouble, it can run it smoothly. And if it can handle a game like that, it’s needless to say that other games are a breeze. Not to mention that pairing the Ryzen 5600X and RX 6600XT gives you the advantage of SAM (Smart Access Memory), an AMD tech that lets the CPU have unrestricted access to GPU memory, increasing the performance.

Add to the fact that AMD has now started offering ray tracing and is working on its own counterpart for DLSS, the Fidelity FX Super-Resolution as well, it seems safe to assume that soon, the RX 6600 XT will be sitting at the top of most gamers' charts for their next GPU. The only issue might be the steep price, but considering the feature set you get with it, that can be justified based on your use case.

If you're looking for a good GPU to power your 1080p gaming rig, you needn't look further, because the Radeon RX 6600 XT will cover all your needs for both gaming and content creation. Yes, getting your hands on it right at this moment might seem tough, but good things come to those who wait, after all.
