The big day will be on 3rd March … the ASUS Radeon RX 6700 XT TUF Gaming and DUAL have already been spotted ahead of the official launch.
Taken from Videocardz … ASUS is getting ready for the big announcement on March 3rd, where AMD is expected to unveil its latest mid-range graphics card called Radeon RX 6700 XT.
We received two photos of the upcoming models from ASUS. We were told that ASUS is allegedly preparing 3 custom models and 1 reference design. The photos that we are sharing today reveal the final design of the DUAL and TUF Gaming models.
ASUS Radeon RX 6700 XT Dual 12GB
ASUS RX 6700 XT Dual is a non-factory-overclocked model. Thus, this graphics card may be one of the rumored Navi22-B variants with lowered TGP. The clock speeds were not provided to us, but we can confirm that this model has a 2.7 slot design with a length of 29.7 cm. It will feature 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors, a default configuration of Radeon RX 6700 XT.
ASUS Radeon RX 6700 XT TUF Gaming OC 12GB
The first known triple-fan Navi22 graphics card is TUF Gaming OC. Unlike Dual, this card is likely to feature Navi22-A with higher TGP. The TUF RX 6700 XT is nearly 3-slot and has a length of 32.2 cm. For comparison that’s 5.5 cm longer than the dual-fan reference design. Another key difference from the AMD design is dual 8-pin power connectors. It was previously rumored that the reference design may also feature dual 8-pins (because that’s how it appeared in first leaks), but it was eventually confirmed that it’s actually a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin. The graphics card looks pretty much identical to RX 6800 XT TUF. It seems that the PCB is a bit narrower and the cooler has a different heat pipe layout.
