After the release of AMD’s Radeon RX 6600 XT for the mainstream market, it was pointed out that its Navi 23 core has a very good efficiency in mining. Compared with Nvidia’s Ampere architecture graphics card, AMD’s RDNA 2 architecture graphics card has insufficient mining efficiency. Previously, when the cryptocurrency market was soaring, it was not the product of choice for miners, but the Radeon RX 6600 XT changed this inherent impression.
According to Wccftech reports, although the Radeon RX 6600 has not been officially released, some retailers have tested its mining performance by using the Beta version of the driver. It is understood that under the default settings of Radeon RX 6600, the hash rate is 27.08 MH/s. After optimization and adjustment, the hash rate exceeds 30 MH/s. At this time, the power consumption is about 50W.
It is rumored that the Radeon RX 6600, which also uses the Navi 23 core, will be released on October 13, and the specifications have been reduced. It has 28 CUs, namely 1792 stream processors, the video memory bit width is still 128 bits, the video memory is 8GB of GDDR6, and the rate is 16 Gbps. The overall performance of Radeon RX 6600 is expected to be close to that of Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060. The official suggested retail price is US$299-329. Of course, the actual transaction price will be higher.
