Product Overview

Sapphire PULSE Radeon RX 6600 XT is a custom-design graphics card based on AMD's RX 6600 XT GPU. While the PULSE series is usually at a notable disadvantaged when compared to the NITRO cards, the PULSE RX 6600 XT is quite similar to the NITRO+ card.
The main differences between the two include the omission of RGB lighting and generally less premium build. While it is clocked a little lower (though still overclocked from the factory), the PULSE card may not be notably worse off performance-wise.
For those more constrained in their budget, Sapphire also markets the RX 6600 card, which has since come into the market as the new entry-level option.

Reviewers from tomshardware have found the following***:
The AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT officially launched on August 11, 2021. Initial supply, at least for overseas markets and some brick and mortar stores like Micro Center, was better than we've seen for other new GPU launches. If supply could keep up with demand, even at a higher starting price of $380, it could be one of the best graphics cards.
