AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 XT is now available for just $1,079.99, making it the first high-end 4K capable GPU to sell for (relatively) affordable prices. The RDNA 2 flagship launched with a price tag of $999 roughly two years back, but severe shortages and increased demand pushed it above the $2,000 mark. As we approach the release of the next-gen Radeon RX 7000 GPUs, market prices have finally started to stabilize.
The MSI Radeon RX 6900 XT Gaming X Triple Fan is going for $1,129 at Microcenter, with a $50 rebate reducing it further down to $1,079. The Radeon RX 6600 is the other RDNA 2 part priced quite close to its MSRP. Gigabyte’s RX 6600 Eagle Triple Fan variant is going for $369, just $40 over its MSRP of $329. Its nearest NVIDIA rival, the GeForce RTX 3060 is still priced at over $449, making it a hard buy.
Most of NVIDIA’s RTX 30 series GPUs are out of stock, including the $699 ASUS RTX 3070 Ti TUF Gaming, and Gigabyte’s RTX 3080 Ti Vision OC which was going for $1,299.
