AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is slower than RX 5700 XT at Ethereum mining!

This is probably the only time that we are happy that a newer product is slower than its predecessor. The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT is reportedly a poorer Ethereum mining GPU than the Radeon RX 5700 XT, offering only 43MH/s versus the latter’s 54.3MH/s.

The Radeon RX 6700 XT’s narrower 192-bit memory bus might be the limiting factor when it comes to its mining performance. Ethereum mining is rather sensitive towards memory bandwidth, and the Radeon RX 5700 XT does tout a wider 256-bit memory bus, similar to the higher-end Radeon RX 6800 series and RX 6900 XT cards.
