AMD's last-generation flagship is now available for under £700 brand new
Following AMD's reveal of their RDNA 3 architecture and their Radeon RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT graphics cards, the value of AMD's last-generation flagship, the Radeon RX 6900 XT has tumbled to under £700 in the UK.
Today, MSI's Radeon RX 6900 XT is available for £699.99 from Ebuyer, a price that is very notable given the fact that these GPUs once sold for double that price during last year's GPU shortage. This GPU has 16GB of VRAM, 5120 stream processors, and three 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
What about AMD's next-gen GPUs?
With MSRP pricing of $899 and $999 for AMD's Radeon RX 7900 XT and RX 7900 XTX, AMD's RX 6900 XT is currently priced where buyers should expect it given its position within AMD's new GPU lineup. AMD's Radeon RX 7900 XTX promises gamers a 50-70% performance uplift over the Radeon RX 6950 XT (an overclocked RX 6900 XT), making the RX 6900 XT's sub-£700 make a lot of sense within today's gaming landscape.
As it stands, AMD's RX 7900 XTX appears to deliver a 50% performance uplift for around 50% more money than MSI's RX 6900 XT. That's a great deal, and a sign that RX 6900 XT pricing may drop further. That said, it remains to seen if AMD's RX 7900 series GPUs will remain at their MSRP price tags once the hit retailers. Will AMD be supplying enough RX 7000 series GPU stock to meet demand?
The Radeon RX 6900 XT's falling price is a sign of the times. AMD's intention with their Radeon RX 7000 series is to offer PC gamers great value. With that in mind, the pricing of AMD's RX 6000 series GPUs have to fall. I wonder how this will impact AMD's lower-end RX 6000 series graphics cards over the coming weeks...
