In brief: The GPU market has been improving in terms of both pricing and availability over the past few months, but we’ve yet to see anything but the lowest-end models approaching MSRP. Meanwhile, a new wave of RDNA 2 cards from AMD might arrive next month at prices that don’t look encouraging at all.
Last week, a few early retailer listings for Gigabyte’s Aorus and Gaming series variants of the RX 6950 XT revealed some rather absurd prices for the upcoming refresh of AMD’s RDNA 2 flagship. While that isn’t a huge surprise given this is supposed to be a top-end GPU with the fastest GDDR6 available, the rest of the refreshed lineup may also carry high price tags.
According to more recent listings (spotted by @momomo_us ) at French retailer PC21.fr and Italian retailer Breakpoint.it, Sapphire will have seven RDNA 2 refreshed graphics cards, with the Toxic RX 6950 XT LE Gaming OC variant being the most expensive of the bunch at €3,134 ($3,388). The cheapest model is the Nitro+ RX 6950 XT Gaming OC model which is listed at €2,961 ($3,199). For reference, the Nitro+ RX 6900 XT is listed at €1,501 ($1,622).
Interestingly, even the mainstream RX 6650 XT is listed at a relatively high price of €822 ($888), which would make it 28 percent more expensive than the regular RX 6600 XT . The cheapest mid-range RX 6750 XT carries a price tag of €1,332 ($1,438), making the RX 6700 XT look almost like a bargain at €931 ($1,005).
It goes without saying that you should take these prices with a healthy dose of salt, since they may well be placeholders for the actual listings. AMD is expected to announce the new cards in May, so it won’t be long before we’ll see if the premium over the standard RX 6000 series is real.
