AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT AIB Models Go for $800: Stocks Relatively Better

AMD’s Radeon RX 6700 XT went on sale today with many regions seeing the card sell for (close to) its retail MSRP of just under $500. However, all was not well. A few of the “factory overclocked” variants which are based on the ASIC A variant with a higher TDP of 230W are priced much higher.

Although the reference model was priced at the SEP of $479, nearly every board partner variant went on sale for well over $700. Just a couple of models from XFX and the ASRock Challenger were going for under the $500 mark, with a few other SKUs priced in the $500-650 range. Here’s an excellent summary, courtesy of 포시포시:

Our review (and comparison) of the reference model should go live tomorrow with a dozen benchmarks, showing the performance of the Navi 22 GPU in comparison to the GeForce RTX 3070 and the RTX 2080 Ti.
