AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT GPU Review: More Than Capable 1080p Class GPU

AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT GPU

Best GPU For 1080p Gaming According to benchmarks we ran, it is really apparent that the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT GPU is more than fit for offering essentially 80fps on most titles with designs set to medium to high. Thus, in case you are searching for another 1080p class GPU, this is certainly the one to consider. Furthermore, we additionally saw that the greatest force utilization during our testing was 129W, which is well inside the appraised 150W.

Also, the pinnacle GPU temperature was exactly at 64degree, even in the wake of messing around like Cyberpunk 2077 for close to 60 minutes. The AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT retails for Rs. 31,990 + 18 percent charge in India. This implies you ought to have the option to get one for not as much as Rs. 40,000 from AMD board accomplices including ASRock, ASUS, Biostar, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, SAPPHIRE, XFX, and Yeston. At the cost, the GPU offers extraordinary execution. In case you are intending to assemble another gaming RIG, likely that doesn’t cost over Rs. 1,00,000 yet not certain about the GPU, then, at that point, the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT is the GPU one such model. It offers a lot of execution, a ton of video memory and furthermore upholds a ton of programming elements to further develop high-goal high-invigorate rate gaming.


AMD has gotten back to challenge Nvidia with its entrance level RX 6600 XT. This $379 (on paper in any event) card is based on the very RDNA 2 engineering that AMD is utilizing for its top of the line cards, however, it’s intended to support 1080p gaming as opposed to arriving at the statures of 4K gaming.

Almost 70% of PC gaming on Steam is still at 1080p, so in case you’re one of the large numbers appreciating 1080p gaming with a more established card like the GeForce GTX 1060, this most recent RX 6600 XT may be an enticing redesign when it dispatches on August eleventh.

It sits at $50 more (once more, on paper) than Nvidia’s RTX 3060, and $20 not exactly the RTX 3060 Ti. AMD guarantees the RX 6600 XT ought to perform around 15% better than an RTX 3060 at 1080p, for the extra $50.

In any case, AMD’s most recent RDNA 2 cards have scarcely enlisted on Valve’s most recent Steam equipment review, proposing that Nvidia is delivering undeniably more RTX cards contrasted with AMD. So regardless of whether AMD can beat Nvidia at the passage level, it needs to make cards that individuals can really purchase for it to issue.

AMD isn’t making its own RX 6600 XT, so it’s depending on board accomplices like ASRock, Asus, Biostar, Gigabyte, MSI, PowerColor, Sapphire, XFX, and Yeston to deliver cards. I’ve been trying Gigabyte’s form of the RX 6600 XT.

This specific RX 6600 XT has three fans, with the fan in the center turning a contrary way to assist with cooling. There’s a metal backplate that incorporates a pattern for the air to scatter from the heatsink underneath.

As the RX 6600 XT just draws around 160W of force, it just requirements a solitary eight-pin PCIe power connector. The suggested least force supply is 500W, so this is great for those not having any desire to update their whole frameworks.

At more than 11 inches long, Gigabyte’s rendition is a shockingly large card for a passage level GPU, yet it’s lightweight to hold so it shouldn’t put any strain on your motherboard. The card is likewise a customary double opening width, in spite of its massive look.

Gigabyte has prepared its RX 6600 XT with an RGB light framework that lights up its logo on the GPU. As a matter of course, this will burn through a rainbow of shadings, however, with 16.7 million shading choices and the capacity to adjust to other Aorus gadgets, there are a lot of alternatives for modifying this.

At the back of the RX 6600 XT, there are two HDMI 2.1 ports and two DisplayPort 1.4 ports. The card likewise upholds PCI Express 4.0 and incorporates 8GB of GDDR6 memory.

I’ve been trying the RX 6600 XT with Intel’s most recent Core i9 processor. For both 1080p and 1440p tests, I’ve matched this GPU with a 32-inch Samsung Odyssey G7 screen. This screen upholds invigorate rates at up to 240Hz, just as AMD’s FreeSync support.

I couldn’t test the RX 6600 XT straightforwardly against Nvidia’s RTX 3060 as I don’t possess one of Nvidia’s entrance level cards, however, you can perceive how well the RTX 3060 acted in my associate Sean Hollister’s survey. I’ve been trying the RX 6600 XT against AMD’s RX 6700 XT to see exactly how much execution you get for $100 less.

I tried an assortment of AAA titles, including Microsoft Flight Simulator, Gears 5, Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, and Control. All games were tried at high or ultra settings on the RX 6600 XT with resizable BAR empowered and most easily surpassed 60fps at 1080p. Demise Stranding finished out at a great 150fps overall, while Gears 5 oversaw 105fps at ultra settings. Indeed, even Microsoft Flight Simulator almost oversaw 60fps, because of a new update that has incredibly worked on how the game sudden spikes in demand for all equipment.

Where I truly saw the 6600 XT battle was in beam following execution. Guard dogs: Legion just dealt with a despicable 6fps with beam following settings maximized, however, it held at 60fps without beam following turned on. There seems, by all accounts, to be a few issues with this card and Watch Dogs: Legion, however. AMD provided another driver for testing halfway through the audit period to explicitly assist with Watch Dogs: Legion, yet it didn’t further develop beam following execution in my tests.

“We know about some waiting execution issues when DXR is empowered at max settings in Watch Dogs: Legion,” says an AMD representative. “In our discoveries, decreasing quality settings with DXR empowered conveys a superior client experience.”

Control appeared to run well with beam following empowered, however, you’re slicing execution down the middle assuming you need this visual quality and there’s no DLSS, or FSR in AMD talk, to compensate for it yet. Metro Exodus was for all intents and purposes unplayable with beam following and settings maximized, averaging 24fps.

So this isn’t a beam following card, yet for a passage level financial plan GPU, I wasn’t actually anticipating that it should be. For all the other things, it performs well at its cost point at 1080p. At the point when you contrast it with the RX 6700 XT, with its $100 value premium, you’ll get around 20% more execution in case you’re willing to pay extra.

Execution in Gears 5 was 18 percent better on the RX 6700 XT over the RX 6600 XT, running as far as possible up to 29 percent better in Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla and 31 percent with Watch Dogs: Legion. Given the issues with Watch Dogs: Legion on the RX 6600 XT, that is a hole that might be shut with driver refreshes, however.

Where things get truly intriguing is the point at which you consider Nvidia’s RTX 3060 Ti. At a $20 value premium (in principle in any event) over AMD’s RX 6600 XT, you’ll get between 10% and 25 percent better execution in most games. There are some uncommon special cases where games like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla are obviously enhanced for AMD, yet it’s surely worth paying extra if evaluating and accessibility is practical.

While AMD may be showcasing the RX 6600 XT at 1080p, heaps of PC gamers are as yet considering the transition to 1440p, even at the section level side of the market. I additionally tried the RX 6600 XT at 1440p to check whether it could stretch to this goal, and frankly… the outcomes were superior to what I anticipated.

Pinion wheels 5 oversee 70fps on normal at ultra 1440p settings, and Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla hits 62fps. I was astonished that Control didn’t oversee better during my tests at 1440p, however. While it hits 60fps all things considered, it dropped to the 30fps territory at additional requesting portions of the game. In the event that you empower beam following in Control at 1440p, it makes the game truly unplayable in bunches of spots. AMD’s RX 6700 XT oversees 81fps on normal in Control; that is an astounding 42 percent execution get around the RX 6600 XT. Somewhere else, the exhibition hole goes from Death Stranding running at 21% better on the 6700 over the 6600, up to Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla with a 32 percent hole.

In any case, Fortnite oversaw 75fps on normal with everything maximized, and Death Stranding got as far as possible up to 107fps during my tests. There’s absolutely room here to play at 1440p with this card, yet you’ll probably have to change picture quality to arrive in a lot of titles. Metro Exodus was unplayable in heaps of parts of the game at outrageous settings and 1440p, and Watch Dogs: Legion slithered along at only 3fps with beam following empowered (unmistakably because of some driver issues).

I wouldn’t suggest this card for 1440p gaming, nor is it truly intended for it. As additional requesting games show up this year and next, you’ll without a doubt need to continue to change settings down on the off chance that you truly need to match an RX 6600 XT with a 1440p screen.

In case you’re willing to extend another $20, on the off chance that you can really get a card at retail value, Nvidia’s RTX 3060 Ti dominates at 1440p in the examination. There’s a nice hole of 25% or more in many games, and casing rates are nearer to 60fps or above in most the games. AMD’s new FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) could assist with the life span of the RX 6600 XT in any case. Similar to Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), AMD’s FSR expects to upscale games from a lower goal to give smoother outline rates without an observable trade off in picture quality.

It’s truly early days for FSR, so none of the games we’ve been trying for this audit have FSR support. FSR is starting off on a promising early foot in the games that do uphold it, offering higher casing rates at the flick of a switch.
