Radeon 6600M on a desktop card?

 Share

Posted (edited)

I looked at GPU prices for the first time in a year and found this weird Chinese 51RISC Radeon RX6600desktop card on Newegg (M being obviously for mobile)

I thought it was a typo, but with an unknown brand from China, I looked on AliExpress and found a desktop RX6600 (as you would expect).

But the specs on Newegg are weirder and 

despite weirdly stating that it's a NAVI24 die and not NAVI23 as it should be, it does have a 55W or 89W TDP depending where you look which is in the range of the mobile 6600 and well under the 130W of the desktop version.

 

We saw multiple times Laptop GPU and CPU getting the Frankenstein port to desktop but they are usually old recycled models whereas the 6600M is not even a year old being released in July 2021 and this card was first put in sale in late March 2022. But seeing that it is a card marketed for mining on AliExpress and stating the expected hashrate in Newegg specs, I wouldn't be surprised that they found a way to get laptop GPUs on a PCIE desktop card to maximize it during the GPU drought.

I guess they are less likely to lie on Newegg than AliExpress.

 

Maybe I'm just too bored on my transit to consider it as a simple typo but it would be weird to make a typo everywhere including the information images.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Seemed to me like a product I would like to see Linus test if it's a scam or a true Frankenstein card.

 

Speaking of information images:

It's also funny that in the "comparison image" they wrote "G6450 nuclear display" and I'm pretty sure they are talking about the 2017 Pentium G4560 iGPU because there's YouTube videos of LOL running at 2K very high settings on a Ryzen 4560G APU at over 144FPS.

 

51RISC Radeon RX6600M 8GB D6 GDDR6 128bit 7nm Desktop computer PC Video GPU Graphics Cards support PCI-Express 4.0 3*DP+1*HDMI-compatible graphics card

 

Edit: Just to be clear, I have no plans to buy a graphic card right now, I just found it and was quite perplexed by the M

I wouldn't trust this at all. Definitely seems like a scam.

Main Desktop: CPU - i7-12700k | Mobo - Gigabyte Z690 Aorus Elite AX DDR4 | GPU - Asus ROG STRIX RTX 3090 Gaming OC RAM - G.Skill Trident Z RGB 32GB 3200mhz | AIO - H150i Pro XT | PSU - Evga 850 GQ | Case - Phanteks P500A Digital - White | Storage - Samsung 970 Pro M.2 NVME SSD 512GB / Sabrent Rocket 1TB Nvme / Samsung 860 Evo Pro 500GB / Samsung 970 EVO Plus 2tb Nvme |

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

I would highly suggest avoiding Newegg you can find better third party sellers or stores using https://pcpartpicker.com/ instead. This site is better for prices and overall options of the products you are viewing.

You say the listing is 6600M but the screenshot you shared from AliExpress says RX6600 in the title. (Not sure if these are supposed to be the same product)

Also a red flag

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

That's my point... and yes, this card just feels like a bunch of 🚩 lol

Spoiler

"I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B"

lol, good case, it was a serious contender for my current PC but I went the mATX way...

The only reason I'm looking on Newegg is because this is where I bought my RX570 4GB for $210 CAD in December 2018 and it really really hurt to see how much I would have to spend today to remove my only serious bottleneck right now: the 4GB of VRAM. It piss me off that I can play FH5 at 75FPS (my monitor has 40-75Hz FreeSync) and yet must reduce the settings to not have VRAM warnings.

The card looks like the generic nvidia scam gt450's but the amd (or well in this case ATI hd 5770) version this time 😛

Usually these scams have visual clues like  Mesozoic ports.

But this one is seriously looking like a RX6600 PCB (here a link to an RX6600 review showing the PCB)

So, it's obviously a sketchy RX6600 card that anyone should avoid buying, but why they added M to the GPU name?
