How much does AMD's Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT and RX 6650 XT cost at UK retailers?
AMD have just launched their first RDNA 2 refresh, delivering enhanced RX 6000 series GPU models that feature higher core clock speeds and ship with faster GDDR6 memory modules. These new graphics cards are AMD's RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT, and RX 6650 XT, and they are available starting today in the UK.
The past few years have been hard for the GPU market, and that has made it difficult to believe the MSRP pricing (or SEP pricing) that is provided by companies. When demand outstrips supply, all bets are off. As such, we felt it was appropriate to have a look at the pricing of AMD's newly launched RX 6X50 series GPUs. To do this we will look at day-1 pricing from Scan UK, Overclockers UK, and Ebuyer, three popular UK components retailers.
AMD's RX 6950 XT
With a US MSRP of $1099, the RX 6950 XT's minimum UK price of £1079.99 should be expected at today's exchange rates. Today, a US dollar is worth 81 pence, and once VAT is added, USD to GBP conversions essentially become a 1:1 trade when comparing US list pricing and UK pricing.
The good news today is that multiple retailers stock AMD's RX 6950 XT at sub-£1100 prices, and that many models are available at AMD's £1079.99 MSRP.
|RX 6950 XT||Scan UK||Overclockers UK||Ebuyer|
|PowerColor Radeon RX 6950 XT Red Devil||£1079.99||£1,079.99||£1,079.99|
|Sapphire RX 6950 XT Pure Gaming OC||-||£1,099.99||-|
|Sapphire RX 6950 XT NITRO+||£1,329.99||-||-|
|Sapphire RX 6950 XT Toxic LC||£1,331.99||£1,249.99||-|
|MSI RX 6950 XT GAMING X TRIO||-||-||£1,399.99|
AMD RX 6750 XT
For AMD's RX 6750 XT, we have not recieved official word from AMD regarding the UK MSRP of their RX 6750 XT. That said, PowerColor's RX 6750 XT Red Devil model is available for £539.99 at Ebuyer. This pricing makes sense given AMD's US MSRP of $549.
Some retailers have higher prices than others for the same GPU models, and some models command a price premium over others.
|RX 6750 XT||Scan UK||Overclockers UK||Ebuyer|
|ASUS Radeon RX 6750 XT Dual OC||-||£599.99||-|
|PowerColor RX 6750 XT Red Devil||£559.99||£539.99||£559.99|
|Sapphire RX 6750 XT Pulse Gaming OC||£754.99||£599.99|
|Sapphire RX 6750 XT Nitro Gaming OC||£802.99||£649.99|
AMD RX 6650 XT
AMD's RX 6650 XT is the most reasonably priced of AMD's newest RDNA 2 offerings, with a US MSRP that is only $20 higher than the RX 6600 XT that it effectively replaces. In the UK, the cheapest model that we could find is £409.99.
|RX 6650 XT||Scan UK||Overclockers UK||Ebuyer|
|ASUS RX 6650 XT Dual OC||-||£419.99||-|
|PowerColor RX 6650 XT Hellhound||-||-||£419.99|

Today, we have found that all of AMD's new RDNA 2 GPU models are available at their MSRPs or close to them. GPU stocks have not sold out immediately, and that means that you can now buy a graphics card at a good price. The GPU shortage is over.
