The Radeon RX 6700 XT won’t be cheap, but it will be powerful

The presentation of the Radeon RX 6700 XT will take place March 3. During the last weeks we have been seeing a lot of information about said graphics card, and we have quite clear performance estimates, but your possible sale price it generated a lot of doubts.

AMD hasn’t confirmed anything yet, but we know, by simple logic, that The Radeon RX 6700 XT will compete with the RTX 3060 Ti, and that therefore it should play in the same price range, although according to the latest rumors it will end up being closer to the RTX 3070, since It will cost between $ 479 and $ 499.

Let’s put this in context, as I understand that it can be difficult to group and position the latest AMD and NVIDIA releases upside down within the graphics sector. The RTX 3090 positions above the RX 6900 XT, and just below we are, in order from highest to lowest power, a las RTX 3080, RTX 6800 XT, RX 6800, RTX 3070, RTX 3060 Ti y RTX 3060.

Well, the Radeon RX 6700 XT would rank between the RTX 3070 and the RTX 3060 Ti, both for price and power. In effect, this means that it would be a little more powerful than the RTX 3060 Ti in rasterization, at least in theory, but that it would be behind that in ray tracing, and it would also play with the disadvantage of not having a technology equivalent to DLSS 2.0.

How much could the Radeon RX 6700 XT cost in Spain?

It is a complicated question. If we just convert currency and apply VAT we would have an approximate price of 480 euros, a figure very far from the recommended price of the RTX 3060 TI (419 euros), although it is important to bear in mind that without a good level of stock this price could end up inflated, as has happened with all the new generation graphics cards that have arrived. to the market in recent months.

possible RX 6600 design

The Radeon RX 6700 XT will have two different versions, one with a 230 watt TGP, which will be marketed by the assemblers and which will bring very high working frequencies, and another with a TGP of 189 watts, which will be the model used for the reference design that will be marketed by AMD. The former will be between 20% and 25% more powerful than the RX 5700 XT, which would put it slightly above the RTX 3060 Ti at best, while the lower frequency model would be a bit below that.

If you wonder how AMD intends to compete with the RTX 3060, don’t worry, the answer is very simple, with the Radeon RX 6700, a model that will come with a notable specification cut compared to the Radeon RX 6700 XT, and that will be, in return, cheaper. We do not have official information about its possible sale price, but it should be in the range of 350 euros, approximately.

And what about those looking for something cheaper?

In case you aspire to buy a new generation graphics card for less than 200 and 300 euros, I am sorry to tell you that you will have to wait for the second half of 2021, since that is the time frame in which the presentation of the RTX 3050-3050 Ti and RX 6600-6600 XT.

The information is still scarce, but, after seeing the performance of the RTX 3060 (at the level of an RTX 2070), I suspect that these new graphics cards they will be positioned as follows:

  • RTX 3050 Ti: more powerful than the GTX 1660 Ti, but slower than the RTX 2060.
  • RTX 3050: more powerful than the GTX 1660, but slower than the GTX 1660 Super.
  • RX 6600 XT: equal to or slightly slower than the RTX 2060.
  • RX 6600: slightly slower than the GTX 1660 Super.
