According to the source, next year AMD will slightly update the graphics processors of the Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon 6600 XT video cards – the 7-nanometer production technology will be replaced by the 6-nanometer one. And in this form, these 3D accelerators will exist until the Radeon RX 7700 XT and Radeon 7600 XT are released.
The transfer to a new technical process was conceived not with the aim of improving the technical parameters of video cards (although one can still count on some increase in frequencies), but with the aim of improving the supply situation. In general, the Radeon RX 6700 XT and Radeon 6600 XT are the most massive representatives of the series, but they are also relatively inexpensive, so they are sold out quickly. Apparently, the transition to the 6 nm process technology will allow increasing the supply of these models. Alas, we can only dream of improving the situation with the production of Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6900 XT: they will not be threatened with any upgrade to improve supplies – these models will immediately meet their successors in the person of Radeon RX 7800, Radeon RX 7800 XT and the current Radeon RX 7900 XT.
The Radeon RX 7900 XT is credited with the so-called chiplet GPU with 15,360 stream processors. This model is expected to be 2.2-2.5 times faster than the current flagship. The Radeon RX 7800 XT will be 30-40% faster than the Radeon RX 6800 XT. But the Radeon RX 7600 XT will receive almost twice as many stream processors as the Radeon RX 6600 XT (4096 versus 2304), and will be able to demonstrate about twice the performance.
