Less than a week after the launch of the RX 6700 XT graphics card, new rumors began to appear on the network regarding a simpler and cheaper GPU Navi 23 meringue card. According to new leaks, AMD’s next product will be a response to the relatively budget video card competitor GeForce RTX 3060. The upcoming novelty will acquire a 128-bit interface and eight gigabytes of video memory of the GDDR6 standard.

This is what a relatively reliable insider Yuko Yoshida shared with the public:

Dimgrey Cavefish (codename GPU Navi 23) was first spotted in leaks about drivers for Linux and macOS operating systems.

According to the tweet, the Navi 23 GPU will offer 32 compute units, or 2,048 stream processors. This is significantly less than the same Navi 22 (RX 6700 XT). The Navi 23 chip will have a 128-bit bus and 8GB of GDDR6 video memory clocked at 16GHz. In addition, the insider also spoke about the size of the Infinity-cache of the budget card, which will be 64 MB (~ 50% less than that of Navi 22). The chip size of Navi 23 turned out to be quite compact – only 236 mm2, which, by the way, is exactly 100 mm2 less than that of Navi 22.

Considering the 128-bit memory bus, presumably, this card can pass by the miners, however, we obviously cannot speak with 100% certainty about this.

At the moment, it is known that cards based on Navi 23 (Radeon RX 6600 XT / 6600) will be aimed at 1080p gaming. That generally fits into the general picture of the AMD lineup: RX 6900/6800 – 4K, RX 6700 XT – 1440p and finally RX 6600 XT – 1080p.

However, this is just speculation and it is necessary to wait for the official information from AMD itself.
