AMD announces Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB at 479 USD, launches on March 18th


Recommended Posts

RDNA2 architecture on that same 7nm node seems susceptible to increase clock frequencies. RX 5700 XT sits around 1950MHz, the boost speed of the Radeon RX 6700 XT should/could reach close to 2600 MHz though the game clock is listed at 2424 MHz (=very high).  To appropriately serve the GPU with instructions and data, AMD increased the memory speed to 16Gbps on its Radeon RX 6000 GPUs. To increase memory bandwidth AMD introduced 'Infinity Cache'.

The article uses two different titles FYI.

 

Price seems pretty reasonable.

I don't agree. Put aside crazy GPU climate for a moment and look at these supposed MSRP's. For something very much mid-range on a 192-bit bus and a replacement of the 5700XT it is very much overpriced in my opinion. AIB cards will push $600+ probably.

Think about us poor canadians!, we pay at least $200 more for everything without the markup!

Was hoping for a price below 449$ tbh :( 

if i could get any decent gpu for $450 it would be the end of the PC space in canada

The thing is, you can't put away the GPU climate or the international chip shortage.  It is the reality of the world we live in, so while I very much agree with your analysis in a theoretical and mathematical environment, in the reality of today, which could last into 2022, the actual cost to performance is attractive.

 

It would, if it's readily available, which is a huge assumption, provide at least a serviceable bridge until the market comes down from it's high.  It's a much better proposition than the $3,000 you'd have to pay right now for an RX 3090 and even the 3060 TI's are getting out of hand.

 

You are, though, spot on if we use as a benchmark all of the original MSRP's of the cards currently on (of out of stock) the market right now.

 

I'm more interested at the moment in the anti-mining 3080 TI and how they would roll that out to avoid a repeat of the mess we're in right now.

Right, but keep in mind the MSRP quoted from AMD is their normal world MSRP. These things will go for far more in the current climate from AIB's and 3rd party sellers in terms of the current GPU climate and pricing market. So assuming that didn't exist, the $480 is absurd.

 

I'm sure it will more double in price though. My nephew bought a 6800 (not even an XT) for like $1100 on NewEgg which I thought was outrageous. His money though.

 

EDIT: I guess it could also be a $380 card + the US tariff tacked on? Not sure how that works since I noticed Nvidia FE cards are still being sold for original MSRP on BB.

I don't think the increase in prices has anything to do with a tariff, since nvidia founders and AMD reference models sold on AMD.com are all sold at the stated MSRP.  AIB's and retail sellers are taking advantage of the market and have increased prices.

 

Plus the tariff would only affect products made in China and shipped into the US.  That doesn't explain the increase in prices in other parts of the world.
