Every PC video card we’ve been reviewing for months includes a disclaimer – if one exists. at all, you can’t buy it anywhere near its MSRP. And yet somehow we have entered the world of bizzaro, where a few retailers listed brand new AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT At or below the recommended price of $ 379, like PC player notes today.
U.S. cards are out of stock at the time I wrote this post, but UK cards still appear to be in stock, including Sapphire RX 6600 XT Pulse for £ 374.99 at Overclockers and the XFX RX 6600 XT QICK 308 for £ 359.99 eBuyer.
US cards included the PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT Fighter priced at $ 379.99and the Gigabyte RX 6600 XT Eagle with triple fan priced at $ 379.99, both at the Micro Center, where you should have gone to the store in person to pick them up, and they are now listed as “limited availability”. The Micro Center apparently still has three PowerColor Hellhound card $ 439.99, however.
GPU prices are no more as ridiculously bad as before – to follow Suppression of China’s cryptocurrency, a flood of cards returned to the second – hand market, which miners no longer needed, and GPUs may no longer apply for triple MSRP on eBay because of this and other factors. But the global chip shortage is not over, and it’s surprising that retailers or OEMs leave all the amount of cash on the table during a period when graphics processors are still selling far north of their price request. We ask AMD if it helped the market, and we tell you what we hear.
As you read In our Radeon RX 6600 XT review, it is not as if it were a particularly desirable card compared to other recent power plants. But for $ 379, it’s still a steal in this market.
