AMD Radeon RX 6700 series launch

AMD is gearing up for its next Radeon launch as the company has scheduled its next "Where Gaming Begins Episode 3" event for the 3rd of March. The announcement comes with a short teaser for its next RDNA2-based graphics card.

The event, called Where Gaming Begins Episode 3, will take place on the 3rd of March at 11AM US Eastern time, and according to earlier rumors, we are looking at a teaser for a Radeon RX 6700 graphics card.

The picture teased over at Twitter shows a dual-slot card with two fans, and it is AMD's direct response to Nvidia's upcoming RTX 3060, or even the RTX 3060 Ti graphics card, depending on the actual performance.

Currently, Nvidia has just launched a GA106-equipped RTX 3060 with 12GB of memory and $329 MSRP, as well as the RTX 3060 Ti at $399. The upcoming Radeon RX 6700 XT is rumored to also come with 12GB of GDDR6 memory and the plain RX 6700 could end up with the same amount of memory but so far we are missing the main information, pricing.

Nvidia's limitation to Ethereum mining could give it an edge on the market as it could end up with more available cards on the shelves, and it certainly has a headstart to bring as many Geforce gaming graphics cards in the hands of gamers, rather than crypto-miners.
