AMD has a new RX 6000 series GPU - Let's have a look

AMD officially reveals their 10GB RX 6700 graphics card

AMD Radeon RX 6700 is now an official part of AMD's RX 6000 series lineup

AMD's Radeon RX 6700 is now an official product, rounding off the RX 6000 series with a new product offering that sits between the RX 6650 XT and RX 6700 XT. This graphics card offers gamers 10 GB of VRAM, 36 compute units, 80MB of Infinity Cache, and supports 4K 120Hz and 8K 60Hz though HDMI 2.1. 

To make a long story short, the RX 6700 is a cut-down version of AMD's RX 6700 XT, with four fewer compute units (36 vs 40), lower base/boost clock speeds, and a smaller memory bus 160-bit VS 192-bit. This gives the RX 6700 a smaller frame buffer, less memory bandwidth, less Infinity Cache, and lower overall compute performance. These changes also give the GPU a much lower TDP, 175W VS 230W. 

AMD has just released an updated version of their Radeon Software 22.5.2 driver that offers gamers official RX 6700 support, enabling optimal performance levels for this new graphics card in gaming applications.

Looking at AMD's RX 6700, it is clear that this graphics card is designed to deliver gamers excellent performance per watt, offering gamers a more compute performance and more memory bandwidth than an RX 6650 XT while consuming less power. With this GPU design, it has been made clear that higher clock speeds on AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series come at a huge power cost, which is almost always the case. 

At this time, it is unknown how many GPU manufacturers will be creating RX 6700 GPU designs, or if AMD will sample these new graphics cards to reviewers. We know that Sapphire has created an RX 6700 GPU model, but at this time the MSRP and availability of this graphics card remains unknown.

they reduce the cost and performance.
they keep the price.

TBH with GPUs being so abundant on eBay at low prices they'll struggle to keep prices high.

In fact they are. Last week you could get a 6800XT gigabyte Tri fan for £659.

I've seen a few 3090 FE for £900 on eBay. So both companies are going to seriously struggle shifting overpriced GPUs now.Quote

I don't think AMD will struggle personally. People are still reeling that you can buy a GPU from your favourite retailer at around the MSRP. Just because cards are not out of stock and many are on eBay at discounted price doesn't mean cards aren't being sold.Quote

Once ETH goes PoS you will be able to buy ANY gpu at 50% discount over REAL MSRP.
And i aggree with you. This companies are going to have a tough time trying to sell their overpriced GPUs.

GPU mining is already dead. And gamers are way way way in lower numbers that they bragged about. They are just a small amount. Every single miner could be easily counted by 20 - 30 gamers. Even myself.

so this prices will have to go lower, or they will rest on the shelves nearly forever.Quote

Are you saying that every gamer that wanted a graphics card now has a graphics card? In the last two months since you could buy a card, all those that couldn't buy one over the last almost two years now have one?

Consumers don't have a choice. AMD and Nvidia set the bar of what something costs. If every gamer who wanted a graphics card has bought one, then you're right. But I think it's absurd to believe that there isn't still huge demand.Quote
