AMD’s RNDA 2 flagship has dropped below its MSRP for the first time since launch with a market price of $949. The Radeon RX 6900 XT with its 16GB memory buffer and 128MB of L3 cache is an excellent option for high frame rate 1080p and 1440p gaming. At 4K, it falls short of the RTX 3090 but considering the $500 price premium for the Ampere flagship, you’re better off with the RTX 3080 Ti.
The Radeon RX 6900 XT originally debuted with a street price of over $1,500 while NVIDIA’s rival RTX 3090 sold for more than $2,000. As GPU prices have finally started to settle down, we’re seeing drops below the MSRP for the first time. This trend should continue and accelerate till the launch of the next-gen Radeon RX 7000 GPUs.
Sapphire’s liquid-cooled RX 6900 XT Toxic has also dropped to just $1,139 which is a killer price for an AIO model. It’s the fastest variant of the GPU with a boost clock of up to 2,600MHz with a single-click overclock, making it as fast if not faster than the upcoming RX 6950 XT.
