AMD has confirmed a new entry in the RX 6000 series. The company has remained relatively hushed on what it plans to release. There have been some leaks, however, and AMD’s own website has even suggested that the new card will be the RX 6700 XT, and a lower-power version, the RX 6700, scheduled to be released next month.
ASUS is going to release the new cards the Radeon RX 6700 XT Dual 12 GB and the Radeon RX 6700 XT TUF Gaming OC 12 GB. Well, those names certainly are a handful, aren’t they? These seem to be two versions of the same card. AMD is expected to announce ASIC A and ASIC B versions of the Radeon RX 6700 XT. It seems as though the Type A chip is going to have TGP (Total Graphics Power) than the B variant. That would make the ASUS TUF Gaming OC model more than likely ASIC A and the Dual 12 GB an ASIC B version.
As it should be, the difference in TGP will also reflect a difference in the power connector. According to the leak, the Dual 12 GB is going to have a 6-pin and an 8-pin power connector. In contrast, the TUG Gaming OC cards will feature two 8-pin connectors.
Both versions are going to have the same 12 GB of GDDR6 VRAM.
