It wasn’t long after rumours of the RX 6600XT release date leaked that new pictures of the GPU started to emerge. Videocardz discovered the pictures on a Chinese forum, showcasing an OEM or Engineering sample variant alongside some benchmarks of the flagship Navi 23 GPU.

At first glance, the GPU looks similar to the XFX series GPUs we’ve become accustomed to over the years, sporting the same dual-fan, dual-slot design. The card in picture comes equipped with 3 x DisplayPort (1.4 presumably) and 1 x HDMI output, all powered by a single 8-pin connector. The PCB on the RX 6600 XT pictured doesn’t showcase any backplate or heatsink, making many people this to be a reference card and not an official AIB SKU.
