AMD has announced a reduction in recommended prices for Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards. This will allow the company to compete more effectively with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series accelerators, which will continue to be sold even after the release of new generation green graphics cards.
The flagship Radeon RX 6950 XT fell from $1,099 to $949, while its sister model, the Radeon RX 6900 XT, fell from $999 to $699. At the same time, the latter seems more attractive when considering the price-performance ratio. It’s just 5% slower on average than the Radeon RX 6950 XT, but costs a whopping $250 less.
The recommended price of the Radeon RX 6800 XT has dropped to $599, which is $100 less than before. The variant without the XT suffix in the name has dropped in price from $595 to $549. These graphics cards are competitors to the GeForce RTX 3080 and RTX 3070 Ti, which cost more.
The Radeon RX 6750 XT is now $419 instead of $509, and the Radeon RX 6700 XT is now $379. Both cards are in the same league as the more expensive GeForce 3060 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070. The Radeon RX 6650 XT drops to $299, while the Radeon RX 6600 drops to $239. The entry-level Radeon RX 6500 XT and Radeon RX 6400 accelerators are now $169 and $149, respectively.
