The AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT is expected to be the first Navi 23 SKU for the gaming segment on the desktop platform.

Now the Navi 23 GPU is all set for a discrete outing on the Desktop PC gaming segment.

Gigabyte's custom lineup also leaked a while back over at EEC and included six variants, four of which were based on the Gaming design and two based on the Eagle design. The cards come in both OC and stock flavors. There are definitely going to be more variants such as the AORUS OC ELITE and more but for now, we have the following models hitting the market first:

  • Gigabyte RX 6600 XT Gaming OC PRO
  • Gigabyte RX 6600 XT Gaming OC
  • Gigabyte RX 6600 XT Gaming PRO
  • Gigabyte RX 6600 XT Gaming
  • Gigabyte RX 6600 XT Eagle OC
  • Gigabyte RX 6600 XT Eagle

Both Gigabyte Radeon RX 6600 XT custom models feature a triple-fan cooling solution and come in dual-slot form factors. We can also spot a single 8-pin connector interface powering up these cards while you can expect the standard RGB LEDs for the logos and a full-coverage backplate included. It looks like we were correct that these cards would aim at the 1080p gaming segment as quoted by the Gigabyte Spain Twitter account.

Besides the Gigabyte variants, PowerColor has also teased its Red Devil & Hellhound series of cards which will be part of the Radeon RX 6600 XT family.

The PowerColor Red Devil variant looks to have received a slight revision since the Navi 23 GPU doesn't require a chunky triple-slot behemoth to cool it down. The new model seems to feature a dual-slot and dual-fan cooling solution but with red accent bars on the back. The heatsink itself on the new Red Devil variant is also less dense than the one featured on previous variants. As for Hellhound, the card should be a triple-fan offering with a blue and black design.
