We are all aware of the stock problem encountered by all new generation products; the issues affect all manufacturers not just AMD, as NVIDIA has already made several the “ ghost ” versions (They feature the graphics but you can’t buy it) and even the next gen consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X / S they are out of stock in stores from the first minute. It’s encouraging to know that AMD has taken this issue into account and built up inventory to avoid it, but to what extent?
The price of the Radeon RX 6700 XT
Over the past few days, we have received a lot of information about the new AMD graphics, including the fact that it looks like ultimately only this XT version will arrive at the moment and not the base version, which will probably be released later. . Tomorrow at 6:00 p.m. we will finally know all the official details, but for now what has been leaked is the price: between $ 479 and $ 499
The Radeon RX 6700 XT would be based on a Navi 22 XT GPU, probably with 40 CUs and 2560 stream processors with a total of 12 GB of dedicated graphics memory on a 192-bit bus.
The base model would be on par with the GeForce RTX 2080 Super, and comparing it to the next-gen graphics, it would be the equivalent of the RTX 3060 Ti, a graphics that works great for games at 1080p and even 1440p resolution and costs (or should cost) $ 399. The OC variant of the RX 6700 XT will offer higher operating speeds and bring it closer to the RTX 3070 range in terms of performance, but keep in mind that its TGP will go up to 230 watts.
Will there be stock this time?
With the rise of cryptocurrency mining, coupled with a shortage of materials and manufacturing issues, stock issues with graphics cards and so many other consumer electronics are the order of the day. This is a well-known YouTube channel that made sure that AMD stores inventory so that at this launch, users can buy a Radeon RX 6700 XT with no issues, but they don’t say where they got it from. this information, which of course, is not official from AMD.
So, as it is and with all the issues that we have been seeing for months now, even if it gives us some hope, we have to be careful and reluctant because there is a good chance that we will meet again. really in the same situation and even though AMD really had more stock than in previous launches, the miners and speculators will surely do their best to get as much stock as possible, because also, as you already know, AMD did argue that these purchases were legitimate and that they were not. will move a finger to avoid them to defend the gaming community.
Tomorrow we will leave doubts.
