Already unavailable on the international market AMD Radeon RX 6600, here our review of the GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6600 EAGLE, does not yet have an official price for Italy and this means that it may be possible to buy it in our local shops in the coming days. On the other hand, with the unexciting situation of GPU prices, the launch of a new card can turn into an opportunity, even in the face of a MSRP of $ 329 which did not impress us.
AMD’s new low-end mid-range card is aiming for high-efficiency 1080p by mounting a scaled-down version of the Navi chip 23 of the AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT, and is undoubtedly able to guarantee decent performance in 1080p, but it is less affordable than cards not much more expensive and suffers from the limited number of ray accelerators, also suffering without ray tracing with titles like Cyberpunk 2077. Enough to lead many to say that while it is interesting, in function of an excellent balance between performance and temperatures, it should cost a hundred euros less.
As anticipated, however, these are hard times for GPUs and such a card, actually found at prices close to the recommended one, could still give satisfaction, thanks to the technology. AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution thanks to which it can push 60fps to Far Cry 6 even in 1440p, with active ray tracing, and guarantees high framerates with titles like Deathloop. But it could be difficult even to find it, given the potential interest of cryptocurrency miners in terms of high efficiency, unless you wait for the arrival of the card in the pre-assembled configurations, already scheduled for the month of October.
