Excellent card for Semi-high MSRP Price
Pros: - 8gb - Almost 2x specs compared to RX6600 - PCIe 4.0 @ 8x + AMD SAM provides insane speeds + absurdly high clocks for these. - Insane thermal design with 7nm. Never above 55C
Cons: - Somewhat big & needs a stand so it doesn't wear the slot down from bending. - Current drivers seem to cause people issues and they've had to revert to older versions. No problems with my card in this aspect. -PCIe 4.0 is @ 8x but PCIe 4.0 operates at basically 16x so not entirely con.
Overall Review: **YOU MUST SET FAN SPEEDS OR ELSE IT'LL START ARTIFACTING FROM OVERHEAT** Haven't built anything since AMD was still ATI & finally cards are coming down in price. Seems like most people are holding off at PCIe x3.0 until AM5 and DDR5 tech becomes common to upgrade their MoBos, so I grabbed a PCIe x4.0 board with AM4 slot since this type of power should last for some years. It was between the RX6600 vs RX6600XT. Everyone mentioned higher features everywhere for the XT though. More Stream procs, Higher clocks, etc for barely $50-$100 more depending. Definitely worth it if you can't wait another 6 months for the new tech drop. Alot of people talk mess about ASRock & I usually prefer Sapphire for AMD cards but both have been around for decades so they know what they're doing. You can OC the clocks to reach the other brands who are +$200-400 for their 6600xt's. Halo Infinite = 1920 x 1080 @ Ultra 100+ FPS Lost Ark = 1920 x 1080 @ Ultra 100+ FPS Starcraft 2 = 1920 x 1080 @ Ultra 250+ FPS Natural Selection 2 = 1920 x 1080 @ Ultra 90+ FPS AMD Ryzen 5600x 16 GB Corsair RAM. Did not OC as this is enough power now.
Pros: 1920x1080 $269 & Free shipping. 5ms Response MANY MANY inputs for HDMI. Also has VGA Component, etc.
Cons: Worked perfectly but JUST THIS MINUTE a dead pixel appear in the top left corner of the screen..Attempted to fix it by doing the rub method but looks like it wants to try and break the pixels surrounding it.
Overall Review: ..Other then that looks AMAZING especailly for the price.
