AMD is widely expected to launch its new Radeon RX 6700 series graphics card based on Navi 22 GPU. The new GPU comes under AMD Radeon RX 6000 series that includes Radeon RX 6900XT, Radeon RX 6800XT, Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6700XT, and Radeon RX 6700 graphics cards.
The Radeon RX 6700, however, was earlier expected to be launch at an early date in 2021. But, now it appears that that the new GPUs will finally launch by the end of March 2021.
According to the report, from folks at Cowcotland, AMD is set to launch its Radeon RX 6700 series graphic card by the end of March.

Cowcotland reports that Radeon RX 6700 series will feature Navi 22 GPU with up to 40 Compute Units (2560 SPs). The Radeon RX 6700 is also expected to come with 12GB GDDR6 memory attached to a 192-bit memory bus.
As we can see in the picture that leaked months ago, the upcoming AMD Radeon RX 6700 series graphic card could come with a dual-fan cooler design and up to two 8-pin power connectors with a PCIe Gen4 interface.
Earlier, the Radeon RX 6700 series was expected to launch at a sooner date sometimes in January or at the end of the month. Reports suggest that the reason AMD has pushed the release date a little further is that NVIDIA also has plans to launch its GA106-based model GPUs in January.
Videocardz, reports that NVIDIA will launch mobile RTX 3060 6GB and desktop RTX 3060 12GB at CES 2021 next week, however, the availability of the desktop variant has not yet been confirmed.
