Re: am i the only person who think the rx 6700 xt price is to high

So, the first reviews and benchmarks have surfaced at the hands of tech Tubers.

Guess that the price is steep for a spot between 3060ti and 3070.

I DO Believe as most other AMD GPU's, it will age properly and it can be a good purchase overtime but at this moment the price may be a little off. 😞

But then again... the GPU market is broken. So it doesn't really matter anyway......

 

That 192bit memory.... :'(

RE: as most other AMD GPU's, it will age properly.

Are you talking the old "FineWine"? 
The only reason for that was because of the uplift in performance in gaming on new DX12/Vulkan versus DX11 on AMD cards.
The AMD GPUs were overengineered to compensate for poor DX11 performance. 

That will not happen again. 
So where exactly will these GPU "age properly"? 

If you ask me they are technically behind Nvidia 3000 series GPU on many fronts.
Luckly for AMD that Nvidia did not release GPUs on TSMC 5nm.

Good point.

Maybe they won't after all, which is a shame. The upper tiers are OK though, but the market is seriously broken right now to make a move on any GPU.

Sure.

Etailers in some places have no Gaming GPU for sale at all.
I have an RX5700XT and two RX590s and an old HD7970OC 6GB  sitting idle.
I could get an X570 motherboard and fit those GPU to it.
I have some spare RAM.

But I cannot get any RX5000 CPU.
I wanted an RX5950X but they seem to be RMAing lots.

I might just sell those GPU on Ebay.

I think the card is priced very reasonably. Find me another 12 gig card with gddr6 for that msrp. Good value, but... the entire stock has already been sold to scalpers. Will be available soon on ebay, amazon, walmart or newegg for 2-3x msrp.
