Average Bench: 100% (43rd of 683)

Based on 27,412 user benchmarks.  Device: 1002 73FF Model: AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT

The RX 6600-XT is AMD's best value for money 6000 series GPU. It features 2048 shader units, a boost frequency of 2539 MHz, 8 GB of GDDR6 memory and a 160W TDP. It also has 32 ray accelerators so ray tracing can be turned on for better lighting and reflections but at a significant cost to FPS. It does not feature an equivalent to NVIDIA’s hardware based DLSS solution which results in higher frame rates and image quality for supported games. Entry models have a suggested price of $380 USD, however street prices are around $600 USD. Nvidia’s 3060-Ti only headlines around 30% faster than the 6600-XT whilst street prices for the 3060-Ti are around 100% higher. Many experienced users simply have no interest in buying AMD cards, regardless of price. The combined market share for all of AMD’s RX 5000 and 6000 GPUs amongst PC gamers (Steam stats) is just 2.12% whilst Nvidia’s RTX 2060 alone accounts for 5.03%. AMD's Neanderthal marketing tactics seem to have come back to haunt them. Their brazen domination of social media platforms including youtube and reddit resulted in millions of users purchasing sub standard products. Experienced gamers know all too well that high average fps are worthless when they are accompanied with stutters, random crashes, excessive noise and a limited feature set. [Jan '22 GPUPro]

AMD are great at selling junk. They pee in the well with fake comments, glorified cheerleaders on youtube and paid magazine reviews. My POS PC still crashes randomly. Everybody needs to call the rats out instead of letting them get away with it.—Aug '21

You can go crazy trying to fix the stutter. tried like 50 things 2days straight, got just little better, but spikes are too noticeable on some games i play. also stress test spikes ar clearly visible—Jul '22

It works fine at stock speeds and settings. Don't ever overclock any AMD GPU, It will crash. I VR game with it (Quest 2, Steam, Skyrim VR) and it works fine if you lower the settings a little bit. I'm upgrading to the 6700 XT though. I think the 6600 XT is the best value GPU out there if you're on a tight budget.

Sold my GTX 1070 for £220 and bought an Asus Dual 6600xt for £340. I can play Cyberpunk at 1080p Ultra settings at about 65 FPS instead of about 35 FPS, so nearly double. Not bad for £120. I only mention CB 2077 because it's the most demanding title, and the 6600xt still manages over 60 fps on Ultra settings. I have had no driver issues or black screens. I was worried about buying an AMD GPU, but I'm actually very happy with it.
