The Radeon RX 6700 XT was released at 3 p.m. today. What about specs and availability? Read on to find out.

Based on the RDNA-2 base, AMD has just launched its next graphics card, the Radeon RX 6700 XT. The graphics card from the latest Radeon series boasts 12 GB VRAM, a 192-bit memory interface and GDDR6. Similar to the RTX 3070, AMD had 1440p gaming in mind when they designed this graphics card. Equipped with 40 RT cores, it allows a smooth gaming experience with ray tracing at Full HD. However, the situation on the global graphics card market remains tricky, as there is still far higher demand than supply. Our editor Kevin provided a good summary of the current market situation here:

FAQ on the sale of graphics cards

I know it's a lot of text, but please read through the FAQ to avoid any possible misunderstandings.

Who may order a graphics card? Real people located in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Explicitly, one copy from the respective series may be purchased per person and residence.

Where can I find the available cards? You can find graphics cards in the «PC Components» category under the «Graphics Cards» product type. But the easiest place to find them is right here on this marketing page, this way you'll see which one is available.

Can I order more than one card? No. One card per customer and series. Multiple and double orders, as well as orders from scalpers will be cancelled without comment. However, ordering an RX 6700 XT and an RX 6900 XT at the same time will be possible.

Why are the graphics cards limited to one piece per customer and series? In fairness to all our customers, we limit the maximum number of items per person.

Can I pick up the graphics card in person? Again, no. Pickup in our stores isn't possible, these cards will be exclusively shipped.

When will my graphics card be delivered? We'll need several days to clean up all multiple and duplicate orders. The graphics cards will be shipped a few days after your order. You can check the status of your current order at https://www.digitec.ch/en/Order.

In what order will deliveries occur? It’s first come, first served. An order will be processed as soon as it comes in.

How many cards are offered for sale in total? We have about 1,500 graphics cards in stock.

*Why isn't there an RX 6080 / 6080 XT? The radeon-gpu is barely available, and there are still some customers who have been waiting for it since release. Which is why we offer popular cards to our waiting customers without backorders.

When will the quantity sell out? Quantities per model are limited in each case. If the counter has expired, the available quantity is sold out. If the rush for individual models is too great, the counter may not keep up.

Why don't you just raffle off purchases for the graphic cards? We've responded to wishes from the community and tried to raffle the Radeon RX 6900 XT. However, after our experience with this difficult procedure, we decided not to do it again for the time being.

Reference design

You’ll recognise the design from the Radeon 6000 series. This time, the Navi 22 map features a lot more plastic. Weighing in at 884 g, the reference card is a lightweight, even compared to the Radeon RX 5700 XT. Unfortunately, we do not yet have any information on prices and allocation.

RX 6700 XT and its availability

As of today's release, no RX 6700 XT cards have reached our warehouse. That’s no surprise. We don't know when the graphics cards will be delivered to us, which is why they’re not available to order yet. However, you can check out the new models on this page today and get an idea of AMD's new midrange GPU. We’ll only make them available for order once they’ve actually arrived in our warehouse. We should be able to offer the following models in the near future:

I've always loved building computers. In the past, as big as possible and covered in LEDs – today, small and quiet. SFF for the win.
