The Radeon RX 6700 series will include a Navi 22 XT based RX 6700 XT graphics card and a Navi 22 XL based Radeon RX 6700 graphics card. The first GPU is expected to have 40 compute units or 2560 stream processors, while the second will be slightly trimmed. The video cards will receive 12 GB of GDDR6 memory, connected to the GPU by a 192-bit bus. The memory will most likely operate at 16 Gbps per bit. In this case, the bandwidth of the memory subsystem will be 384 GB / s.
