GeForce GTX 1070 vs Radeon RX 6600 XT specs and performance

According to the hardwareDB Benchmark, the Radeon RX 6600 XT GPU is faster than the GeForce GTX 1070 in gaming.

The Radeon RX 6600 XT has a slightly higher core clock speed. The core clock speed (or base speed) is the frequency at which the GPU core runs. This metric makes sense when comparing GPUs of a similar architecture or generation. In addition, the Radeon RX 6600 XT also has a significantly higher boost clock speed. This is a frequency that can be reached if the GPU is cooled sufficiently and has enough power.

As stated by the manufacturer, they both have the same amount of memory at 8 GiB. Memory size doesn't directly affect performance, but too little memory will certainly degrade gaming performance.

In addition, the GeForce GTX 1070 has a slightly lower TDP at 150 W when compared to the Radeon RX 6600 XT at 160 W. This is not a measure of performance, but rather the amount of heat generated by the chip when running at its highest speed.

In conclusion, all specs and GPU benchmarks considered, will recommend the Radeon RX 6600 XT over the GeForce GTX 1070.
