AMD launched the Radeon RX 6700 (without XT) without much announcement. So far, only Sapphire and PowerColor have set about realizing the corresponding model. Therefore, there are currently very few variants on the market.
The official benchmarks are also difficult to find, if at all. Based on the data and the model designation, we suspect that the AMD Radeon RX 6700 lies between the RX 6700 XT and RX 6650 XT – as our performance ranking for graphics cards shows. In direct comparison to the AMD RX 6700 XT with Navi-22 chip, the RX 6700 was cut in a few points.
The shaders have been reduced by almost 10 percent from 2560 to 2304, the compute units from 40 to 36, and the VRAM from 12 GB GDDR6 to 10 GB GDDR6. In addition, the game and boost clocks have been throttled, which also means that the RX 6700 draws less power from the socket. Consequently, a single 8-pin PCIe connector is sufficient for operation, at least for the currently available models.
Officially, the MSRP of the AMD RX Radeon RX 6700 is around 430 euros. As a result, the new card is becoming a gaming graphics card with good value for money, provided the expected performance is confirmed in tests. The HardwareSchotte editorial team has listed the best models in direct comparison and also has the current best prices ready.

Why are there so few alternatives to the AMD RX 6700?
At the start of the new graphics card series, there are only two models Sapphire and PowerColor. As soon as new ones are added, they will also be shown here in comparison.
Which power supply is optimal for an AMD RX-6700 graphics card?
If the RX 6700 XT still had a power supply with at least 650 watts, a good power supply with 550 watts should be enough for the AMD Radeon RX 6700. However, if other models with factory overclocking and more power connections come to market, a 650W power supply would certainly be a better choice.
What monitor ports does a Radeon RX 6700 graphics card have?
As is typical for AMD, three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.1 port are available.
How big is an AMD Radeon RX 6700?
With a maximum length of 24.2 centimeters, the two current models can be described as compact for a gaming graphics card. Of course, this is also due to the cooler, which is two slots high and has two fans installed for cooling.
Which is better: AMD Radeon RX 6700 or RX 6700 XT?
The variant with XT is the faster graphics card. The AMD Radeon RX 6700 lies exactly between the RX 6650 XT and the RX 6700 XT, albeit quite closely.
