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]

The RX 580 launched this week and is AMD’s latest flagship GPU which is based on a second generation Polaris architecture. The 580 is a refresh of the RX 480 which was released just 10 months ago. Modifications to the architecture have resulted in improved thermals and increased clock speeds by around 10%. The RX 580 will come with either 4GB or 8GB of high-bandwidth GDDR5 memory. Exact pricing for this mid-range chip remains to be seen, but the RX 500 series is likely to cannibalize sales of AMD’s 400 series. Performance wise, the RX 580 is in direct competition with NVIDIA’s popular GTX 1060 6GB which is now 9 months old. Perhaps after last year’s ill timed head to head release of the RX 480 and the faster but similarly priced GTX 1060 (a standoff which NVIDIA seem to have won based on market share), AMD are attempting to draw back some market share with the newer, slightly upgraded RX 580. [Apr '17 GPUPro]
