The RDNA-2 middle class with Navi 22 is scheduled to start on March 18th and rumors have again spoken that the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT based on Navi 22 XT will appear in two versions with different clock frequencies. The website reported at the end of January VideoCardz about such a split.
ASIC A and ASIC B for the Radeon RX 6700 XT
Now the YouTube channel would like Coreteks have received corresponding information from their own sources, according to which AMD is actually planning with a total of three SKUs for the Radeon RX 6700 series. According to Coreteks it should be “ASIC A” and “ASIC B” based on Navi 22 XT for the Radeon RX 6700 XT and another chip based on Navi 22 XTL for the Radeon RX 6700.
ASIC A especially for OC models
ASIC A would thus be used for all factory overclocked models, while ASIC B should be available for the reference design from AMD itself and all non-overclocked variants.
The first rumors about the Radeon RX 6700 XT are on Twitter users @patrickschur_ due to the fact that he had already shared information about the short message service in November of last year and also pointed out different TGP classes.
20 to 25 percent faster than the RX 5700 XT
Coreteks speaks of clock frequencies of 2.5 to 2.6 GHz for the ASIC B and once again confirms the 12 GB GDDR6 graphics memory with 16 Gbps on a 192-bit memory interface. The OC models with ASIC A should be able to add another five to ten percent of the maximum clock frequency to the reference model, which confirms the aforementioned 2,850 MHz for custom designs, which at the time of Igor’s Lab could be read from a BIOS.
