They really did a fantastic job of keeping this new graphics card release under wraps, but as of 2 a.m. on October 14th, 2021, the newest AMD Radeon RX 6600 graphics cards are ready to purchase in New Zealand!
There is no standard cooler design, as there was with the previously launched XT version, so we get to enjoy a wide variety of aftermarket versions from AMD exclusive partners Powercolor, Sapphire, and ASRock, as well as Asus, Gigabyte, and, eventually, MSI.
Essentials of AMD Radeon RX 6600:
– Power Input: 1x 8-Pin (500w PSU recommended) – 3x DisplayPort (v1.4) + 1x HDMI ([email protected] support) – Max Resolution: 7680 x 4320 – 2+ Slot Form Factor
Starting with the Sapphire Pulse RX 6600 Graphics Card, we can see that it comes with their awesome Dual-X cooling system, which includes a state-of-the-art radiator setup and 2x fans that help to keep things cool while remaining relatively quiet thanks to the larger size + improvements Sapphire has made to the fan blades, which they claim make the solution up to 10% quieter than the previous generation – nice job Sapphire!
Although the Sapphire Nitro+ Cooler leans toward the 2-slot form factor, a deeper look at the MSI 2x Mech RX 6600 reveals that not all 2-slot cards are created equal. While it is still a simple fit for most chassis, it is an essential element to consider for those wanting to construct an extremely compact ITX SFF gaming PC.
That said, prior MECH 2X GPUs have performed well, and this newcomer is expected to continue the trend; the TORX FAN 3.0 technology is really interesting!
Powercolor, an AMD exclusive partner, has two models that will be available in New Zealand on day one, the Powercolor Fighter RX 6600 and the Powercolor Hellhound RX 6600. Fighter is their typical ultra-slim design, with no LED light effects or bling to be visible. It fills a niche for those ultra-small gaming PC systems where every millimeter matters.
The Powercolor Hellhound variant foregoes the sleek Fighter design in favor of a huge pair of twin fans with extremely bright LED illumination. It looks great, particularly with a chassis that allows either inverted motherboard positioning or side mounting GPU with a PCIe 4.0 extension.
Our short look concludes with a monster RX 6600 for Gigabyte, which has a huge 3x Fan cooler on their Eagle RX 6600. Because the GPU PCB is still short, the rear fan may blow straight through the fins.
Despite being considerably bigger than all other launch choices, the Gigabyte Eagle RX 6600 only needs 1x 8-Pin power input and is remarkably thin, measuring just a few millimeters above 2-slot.
It’s great to see so many great options released, and with the new AMD Radeon RX 6600 being the most affordable graphics card option for gamers, it’s been well received here at GGPC – we’re hard at work on our first RX 6600 Gaming PC builds with the Gigabyte Eagle inside – and it’s looking fantastic.
