How well can the Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB run games
14 Jun 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

We take a look at game performance achieved on this graphics card when running 2021 popular games. This short Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB game hardware review looks at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. This card runs recommended graphics requirements of 986 games from the top 1000 most demanding games being played today.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing Days Gone getting 87 FPS with the Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB, Dying Light 2 predicted to get 61 FPS and Elden Ring predicted to get 94 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Days Gone on the Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB to see that it got a good set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 175FPS, M: 138FPS, H: 93FPS, U: 66FPS. Another popular game to investigate at 1440p with this card was Dying Light 2 which we predicted will be reasonable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 46 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Elden Ring where its predicted Ultra 1440p Frame rates were good at 72 FPS. Looking at a few of these 1440p results for the Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB we get the impression that it is a strong choice at these screen resolutions. With Ultra graphics settings being regularly reached at 1440p gaming its easy to consider bumping up the screen size to 4K for this graphics card.

How many years will the Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB? If you want an upgrade suggestion for the Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB then a good choice would be 20 Series GeForce RTX 2080 Ti as this is better than 998 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 21% better performance as well.

Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB is an Enthusiast gaming Graphics Card based on the second (2.0) Revision of the RDNA Architecture.


Architecture
The Navi 22 GPU offers support for GDDR6 Memory, DirectX 12.0, Vulkan 1.0, and OpenGL 4.5.


This variant of the Navi 22 GPU features 40 Compute Units activated, offering 2560 Shader Processing Units, 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The GPU features a 1605 MHz base clock speed and up to 2500 MHz with boost clock. This puts its predicted performance roughly in line with the GeForce RTX 3060.


GPU
The Central Unit is clocked at 1605 MHz, rising to 2500 MHz with boost clock enabled.


Memory: Speed
The GPU is equipped with high-speed GDDR6 and accesses the Frame Buffer through a 256-bit memory interface, providing total memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s.


Memory: Frame Buffer
The GPU can fill up a Memory Pool of up to 12GB. Under most circumstances, this only proves useful in certain 3D Games whose Settings Require Large Amounts of Memory.
However,the GPU itself is aimed for 1080p Gaming, In some limited scenarios, 12GB might be a bottleneck and Performance could be better were the Frame Buffer larger, however this would only be an issue in the most demanding games.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 170W, it requires at least a 600W PSU with two available 8-pin connectors.


Performance
AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB competes with GeForce RTX 3060 12GB, which is available for $399.
Specs currently available suggest the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB performance should be in the same region as the GeForce RTX 3060.


System Suggestions
AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT 12GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840 x2160 (4K). For the most demanding AAA games it should be ideally suited to 1080p. We recommend a Very Strong Processor and at least 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
