It’s no secret that AMD is planning a graphics card (or two) around the Navi 23 GPU. The RX 6600 XT and RX 6600 seem to be the possible culprits right now, and the card shown below may be the first. version of one of them.

The true source of the image has been lost, however Broly_X1 on Twitter managed to catch him and preserve this rare vision for everyone (via Videocardz). The image shows what appears to be a reference design for an AMD Radeon GPU, although it does not match existing RDNA 2 reference coolers.
This would not be too extraordinary for the more budget and mid-range cards in the stack, which will give up luxury covers and coolers for their affordability.
The card contains a label that mentions PC Partner Ltd., a mega-sized OEM graphics card. The company handles Nvidia and AMD GPUs, and is probably best known for producing GPUs for the Sapphire and Zotac brands. Our Dave even visited PC Partner during the day.
The label also indicates the exact GPU used, the Navi 23 chip, which will be a scaled-down version of the RDNA 2 chips that already exist on the market. It is expected to house 2,048 cores for the RX 6600 XT and 1,792 for the RX 6600.
However, its appearance on the label is a bit strange. We would normally see a specific graphics card model listed here, which may mean that it is a pre-production sample or even something completely different. Nor can we rule out the possibility that it may be completely falsified.
But at least it looks like the piece and looks like it has 8GB of GDDR6 memory, as recent rumors suggest.
Look, this is what happens. There has recently been a wave of rumors about the RX 6600 and RX 6600 XT, and a sudden influx of leaks and rumors usually indicates a very close release date. AMD also has no opportunity to announce new products in the near future: AMD is hosting a major conference at Computex in early June, and E3 arrives shortly thereafter.
