The graphics card came in a Cardboard box fitted to secure the graphics card. On the box it has the features of the card on the back detailing the specifications of the product. The card was in an anti-static bag. This helps in keeping the Radeon RX6600 XT safe after transit.  Materials used in the construction was the PCB, and copper metal for the piping to help cool the GPU, and the metal framing that holds the fans to also assist in cooling, and the plastic fans.  Quality of materials as well as the fit and finish was excellent.


The VisionTek Radeon RX 6600 XT has a heatsink attached with two fans to help with the heat management. To power the Radeon RX 6600 XT you plug in a 8-pin PCIe plug. The Radeon RX 6600 XT doesn’t need too much power with a recommended supply of 500 W. With 8GB of GDDR6 along with their RDNA2 for memory you should be fine. For display ports the Radeon RX 6600 XT comes with three Display ports and one HDMI port, sufficient for most needs.



The system I was testing the Radeon RX 6600 XT with is a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12-core. I used a couple programs to see how the Radeon RX 6600 XT would run. I used Horizon Zero Dawn, BorderLands 3, and 3DMark (Time Spy and Fire Strike). Fire Strike is a 1080p test the 3D Mark has and the Radeon RX 6600 XT ran well on the test. There were some parts where it lagged a little but ultimately ran alright. With Time Spy the Radeon RX 600 XT did have a little bit of a struggle with. Mainly because Ray Tracing is not the best with this GPU. In the end it ran slightly below average.



On BorderLands 3 the Radeon RX 6600 XT seemed to be running a little below average on Badass settings. Getting an average 31 FPS on the benchmark and 33 in the gameplay. On medium you're able to get 58 FPS on the benchmark and 60 on the gameplay. On Horizon Zero Dawn we did a lot better. Averaging about 60 FPS on both gameplay and on the benchmark on ultra settings.



In conclusion the VisionTek AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT is a great 1080p graphics card. It does okay at 1440p gaming as well but doesn't do well with ray tracing. At the price of $649.00 it isn't giving you the performance you would expect at that price. It does have good features and performance, so if you find it on sale I would recommend picking up this Graphics card. In the end I would give the VisionTek AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT our Recommended Award. For more info and complete specs, check out their website at
