Tech giants AMD have recently announced their RX 6000 series of GPUs, and they have managed to stun their fans and critics alike with loads of new features and reasonable price tags on the upcoming cards.
The RX 6000 series will include three GPUs: RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, and AMD’s flagship card RX 6900 XT, which is set to revolutionize modern-day gaming.
The prices on these new AMD cards are on par with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series which was announced in September this year, with the cheapest in the series costing $579, slightly more than that of NVIDIA’s RTX 3070 standing at $499. However, the price tag on AMD’s flagship RX 6900 XT is significantly lower than NVIDIA’s RTX 3090, with their respective prices being $999 and $1,499.
The world is currently looking forward to seeing if the RX 6900 XT manages to match the RTX 3090 in terms of performance, which would make it a clear winner in the market due to the whopping 33% price difference.
AMD RX 6000 Release Date
The release dates of the newly announced cards have already been mentioned by AMD. The RX 6800 and 6800 XT will both be available in the retail shelves starting from November 18th. The 6900 XT will arrive a bit later on December 8th.
If you’re planning to buy yourself a new card soon, it might be a good idea to wait till the launch of the RX 6000 to find out how its performance holds up against the RTX 3000.
