Earlier this year the website had Cowcotland Reported from own sources about the expected launch of the Radeon RX 6700 XT and RX 6700 in March, now the website gives a specific date: On March 18, the Radeon 6700 XT should make the start in the upper middle class.

2,560 shaders and 12 GB GDDR6
The graphics processors Navi 22 XT and Navi 22 XL, which are said to have 2,560 and 2,048 shaders and were developed under the code name “Navy Flounder”, have repeatedly been named as the basis for the two graphics cards.
Both Navi 22 XT and Navi 22 XL should have 12 GB GDDR6 on a 192-bit wide memory interface, which is supported by a 96 MB Infinity Cache.
Below the Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon RX 6700, the Radeon RX 6600 XT and RX 6600 with Navi 23 (“Dimgrey Cavefish”), which will also be in the new Tesla MCU of the updated Model S and Model X, will be included in the course of the year, and a 128 bit wide memory interface and 64 MB Infinity Cache follow.
No information has yet been leaked about the possible pricing of the Radeon RX 6700 series. In view of the current availability of graphics cards in general, the UVP and MSRP are currently more of a theoretical nature anyway.
