AMD can’t help it sometimes. Nvidia makes a mistake and they just have to one-up them. With the timing of this launch, that’s exactly what the Radeon RX 6700 XT is - But could it still be good?

RX 6700 XT = 40 CUs vs RX 6800's 60. I don't know how I managed to not mention this. -AY

Yes, this is likely the reason behind the release. To be able to better use the NAVI chip stock with bad CUs but still passing the high speed clock test. That's all. This is why often the second-highest tier is released (full die) then the ones under it. Then higher clocked variants of the ones under it, and finally the top line with the select full dies. Occasionally, if they delay release long enough they can have enough full dies with high clock rates to get a top clock model available in limited quantities at release. However, they will never have a top clock model of the cut reject dies at release, because testing resources beyond the basic A/B binning of potential top tier chips are dedicated to the full die chips.

Thx für updating but maybe the next video should be a comedy piece on why pc is dying thx to scalping. Because the reality is a tragedy right now where no one in their right mind should consider buying or upgrading because doing so is a massive loss. Doubling or trippling performance for 5x the price of the old components just doesn't make sense. We are in a situation where the old and new hardware are just insanely overpriced and just nothing is really worth it. I hope Game Developers will continue integrating mouse and keyboard support into console games because if you catch a Microsoft console on windows store it just is a better bargain than upgrading your 6 year old hardware with anything else out there. Don't buy from scalpers and forget ebay and even the serious retailers because no one offers a good bargain since more than a year now and it won't get better unless there will be global policy adjustments worldwide. It's a no win scenario for consumers and we have the right to be in rage about and call for justice (just no death threats to anyone!!!). If only those lawyers that currently file for copyright issues would change to hardware to hunt down scalpers for once we'd thank em.

AMD and other chip manufacturers will need to change in the next generation of chips to reduce power consumption to 35w or below.Power consumption is becomming more important than performance.

Please stop basing your reviews on MSRP. It doesn’t matter what you SHOULD be able to buy the card for. A 3060ti is going to cost around $300 more on the second hand market.

In a real-world market, the 6700XT isn't the best choice for the money, but I just sold my 2-year-old vega64 nitro for £540 which was more than £200 more than I paid for it new back in 2019, so I picked up one of these 6700xt's for £680 through a contact who had one and it was a nice upgrade for £140 as RTX 3070's are nearing £1,000 mark now.

Seems like every Radeon card I get is badly tuned, runs too hot, and is still slower than whatever supposed nvidia equivalent. It's cool I can suddenly have 20 more frames with some futzing around, but I'm tired of having to do it. I was going to do a full AMD build but after seeing the price point and then the 6800XT price point, like you said - they have got to be joking.

You said... Many people will buy this but will you be happy you did? Well... I did and I am. It's a great card. Sold my 5700XT for the same price as I paid for this 6700XT and it is awesome. At 1440P in Escape from Tarkov I went from mid 70's to in the 100's in fps. Could not be happier. Selling the 5700XT meant free upgrade. Still think MSRP should have been $429 to have the value crown tho.

rtx 3060ti's are rarer than rocking horse shit and going by your ebay prices and what shops in Oz are pricing them and 3070's at, I feel that a card that is $300-$400 cheaper to buy AND in stock in Oz is not too bad. More so when the games I do play are the ones that the 6700xt does outperform the 3060-70s. Even get a notable improvement using Smart access memory with my 5600x in games such as RDR2 and Borderlands 3 Overpriced? no doubt about it, but after selling my 5700xt for $1000au to a fella that is probably going to mine with it, the extra $149au I had to shell out for the 6700xt was a no brainer.

I won a newegg shuffle and had the opportunity to buy gigabyte's rx 6700 xt 12gb eagle for $700 paired with an x570 aorus elite wifi for $220 (the exact same motherboard i already own). I will be selling the motherboard to a coworker for $160, so essentially I'll have paid $760 for it. The card seems to have a much better cooler than the reference model, as well as rgb 2.0 which will sync nicely with my whole rig. Newegg's "bundles" are at face value annoying, but i guess it helped me secure a card, as more people try to win just the card than try to win the card and whatever other junk they pair with it that you don't need. I just completed a build last month and the only thing missing was, guess what? Yep, a video card. I have been using my old rx 580 4gb as a placeholder in my new build. I am just ecstatic that I will finally get to complete my build with a new card, it will be quite the upgrade from what I have. Most reviews for this card are very ho hum, which is kind of disheartening, but these reviews are comparing graphics cards as if we can actually enjoy a choice in the matter, but this is far from the reality of things... Regardless, I have a feeling it's going to serve me very, very well until things cool down and I can buy a 3070. I hope everyone out there plugs away at the raffles and has alerts going and everyone has a chance to find a card that, while it may not be the "BEST CARD," it will be more than enough for you. Good luck everyone! Stay healthy!

I so tired of hearing about raytracing. At the moment there are 0 games (imo) worth playing that actually support it. This is coming from someone who owns a 3090 (it was the only gpu in stock when I was looking for a new one and I'll also be selling it once I can get a 6800xt at msrp), I don't give a shit about raytracing. I don't see how it can even be considered as a selling point for any gpu right now.

I managed to get one of these on launch day and i'm happy i did. The only other alternatives were buying a tot tier gpu vor 1,500€+ or buying a complete prebuild pc by Alienen ware, Ohmen etc. So buying a card that is still good but maybe not aaaaas good as a different one for 80 theoretical dollars less is better then getting none at all

Ya know what, I love you guys, but what's going to happen and I'm sure it's going to happen very soon as it always happens all generation, AMD will come up with that update to our cards that will rule them all again or at least catch up to Nvidia properly. And all these will be pointless... again. To slaughter videogame cards at the beginning of their generation is like shooting oneself in the foot if history is to be noticed of its illustrious patterns every once in a while. Every single generation. Towards about the half of each gen, the lesser performant team always ends up at least catching up to the other guy. I would prefer hearing something along the lines of... more about what the card can really do right now (more live testing), which is definitely more than enough already for what we can get during the pandemic, and talk about it's most likely bright future, refer to previous generations and let us know what you think is going to happen next. I like both companies but a lot of people will only buy the company they've always trusted a little more and will not move on to the others and still have an awesome experience. I find it stupid to still be comparing dick sizes with all the technology there is to talk about nowadays. Just my 2 cents..

Yes it's great Nvidia can leverage it's DLSS and ray tracing. Time will tell if AMD will rise to the level, if they do these cards will absolutely smoke what NVidia pushed out with Price factored in but AMD must deliver the other side. Games without the support for NVidia ray tracing tend to go to the RXs....

AMD GPU's are CRAP!! DO NOT BUT! Their drivers always suck which makes VR unplayable, and any new games unplayable...and if you into audio production forget about it! Your plugins GUI's won't even show up on your nice big 55" screen so that you can see them! They show up 10x smaller then their supposed to, and you cannot resize them even though they are supposed to be resizable! Pop in an old Nvidia 520 card that's 10+yr's old, and it's all find and dandy! You just can't play VR or any games besides Counter Strike! But you can work! So basically save your money!
