We haven’t seen the full range of AMD’s RDNA 2 GPU stack yet, with the Radeon RX 6600 XT and RX 6600 still running as emerging models. The specs are fairly well known, but these two GPUs have not yet been officially announced, although they were expected in the first half of this year. However, they were briefly seen on the PowerColors website. The pages in question have been extracted since then, but only later VideoCardz managed to take some photos first.
The PowerColor site only listed GPU families, so the RX 6600 XT Series and RX 6600 Series, and there were no details to follow along with these backup pages. There weren't even any demonic names to go with them, which at the moment seems especially fond of PowerColor: if you want a graphics card called Hellhound, Liquid Devil or Red Devil, you already know where to go.
Despite this lack of information, the fact that these GPUs were listed would suggest that the official launch is imminent. And surely we could do it with some more affordable graphics cards entering the market right now. The fact that there was no hard specification is not too much of a problem either, because at the moment both chips are fairly well-known entities.

The reason we’re so sure of these specs, even though we didn’t have anything official from AMD, is because it’s released mobile versions of Radeon RX 6600M and a Radeon Pro W6600. And AMD has the specifications for these GPUs in place since they were announced.
It seems that the only reason we haven't seen the Navi 23 desktop twists yet is because of the silicon shortage. It still has an impact on graphics cards, although with a reduction in cryptographic mining in China, things don’t look as bleak as they used to be.
So while we know the key specs, what we don’t know is the price. We had the RX 6800 and 6700 XT at $ 569 and $ 479, respectively, and given that both are small versions of these GPUs, they should be much cheaper.
Which is the cheapest price, although, according to AMD, he thought it was okay to charge $ 479 for the Radeon RX 6700 XT would indicate that he would try to get as much money out of the RX 6600 XT and RX 6600 as possible.
Ideally, we should be in less than $ 300 territory, but we'll have to wait and see.
