    AMD Radeon RX 6600 may be released on 13th October

    And the specs of this RDNA 2 graphics card have been 'confirmed' by the same source.
    Read more.

    Forget it. One thing, $379.00 USA dollars, that about $483.00 Canadian dollars, and it only using a lousy 128-Bits interface. NOPE. Need a 256-Bits interface for that amount of money.

    Not in the current market it doesn't. Sadly.

    Then get a slower, more power hungry, more expensive, less feature rich RX5700XT because it's got 256 bits!

    I wouldn't be that hung-up about bit-ness and more about performance.

    But while Hawaii with it's 512-bit bus aged very well, it was a brute force design and a smaller bus with a good implementation of cache can use a lot less power.

    My problem with the 6600/6600XT (Navi 23) is that for the price, they should have more cache.

    Pfft, my slower and more power hungry Vega 56 has 2048 bits!

    DanceswithUnix has won the internet.

    Have to say I've become increasingly despondent at the state of the PC market in the last year, if it's not graphics cards costing 100% more than they're worth it's companies shafting customers by stealthily changing components and others purposefully generating mountains of e-waste so they can turn a buck or two.

    If we're into willy waving, I have a faster 2048 bit bus in my vega64.

    Best part is, when you compare it to the utterly monstrous TBPs of current cards, no one can joke it's a space heater anymore.

    (Radeon 7 is also 4096 bit, but they are actually quite quick and where's the comedy in that)
