AMD's higher-end RX 6950 XT could have a high price tag

AMD's Radeon RX 6950 XT has been listed for over $3,000

AMD's Radeon RX 6950 XT has long been rumoured, an upgraded version of the company's RX 6900 XT that features higher core clock speeds and faster GDDR6 memory modules. The graphics card is expected to launch next month alongside new Radeon RX 6750 XT and RX 6650 XT models, reworking the company's RDNA 2 GPU lineup.

This week, Gigabyte's Radeon RX 6950 XT has been listed in Australia for $3,241.54 (via @momomo_us). In the UK that price translates to £1841.31. If this pricing is legitimate, AMD's new Radeon flagship will cost as much as an Nvidia RTX 3090 Ti.

At this time, we expect this Australian price tag to be a placeholder. Today, Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics cards can be purchased in the UK for under £1,000. Simply put, an £1,800+ price tag for an upgraded Radeon RX 6900 XT would be a foolish move from AMD. It would destroy consumer goodwill and give customers a negative perception of AMD and its Radeon brand. AMD should not expect an 80% mark up for what's expected to be a be a minor upgrade.

We don't believe that the RX 6950 XT's leaked pricing is legitimate

Right now, we do not know the performance levels of AMD's Radeon RX 6950 XT, but unless AMD has made unexpected changes to their GPU design, the Radeon RX 6950 XT will effectively be an overclocked RX 6900 XT with faster GDDR6 memory. The Radeon RX 6900 XT already features the full potential of AMD's Navi 21 silicon, giving AMD limited room to deliver further improvements.

We expect AMD's MSRP for its RX 6950 XT to be below £1,500. We hope that AMD will push for aggressive pricing with their Radeon RX 6X50 series, as we want to see gamers get good value from their new graphics card purchases.
