AMD Radeon RX 6600
The Radeon RX 6600 is a GPU from AMD released in 2021. This chip has a very good gaming score at 43% in our GPU benchmark.
The Radeon RX 6600 has 8 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 218 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.
In terms of clock speed, the Radeon RX 6600 GPU core runs at a frequency of 1626 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 2491 MHz. The core clock is directly related to the performance of a GPU, the higher the clock, the more processing can be done per second. A higher clock does not guarantee better performance by itself, this also depends on the number of shading units and other elements of the pipeline.
As for rendering API support, the Radeon RX 6600 supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.
Power and thermals for the AMD Radeon RX 6600 are a TDP (Thermal Design Power) of 132 watts. This measures the amount of heat the GPU produces when running at 100%. This isn't a measure of power consumption, but it's a good estimate.
