AMD has dropped the prices across its entire range of Radeon RX 6000 "RDNA 2'" lineup right before the launch of Radeon RX 7000 "RDNA 3" GPUs.
AMD Officially Price Cuts Radeon RX 6000 "RDNA 2" Lineup As Radeon RX 7000 "RDNA 3" GPU Launch Approaches
Update: The prices are retailer-specific and as mentioned in the chart below, you can see that it is Newegg that's offering the price cuts across a wide range of AMD Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards.
Within its official blog post, AMD has listed down new prices for its entire range of Radeon RX 6000 "RDNA 2" graphics cards and also compare their cards to the competitions existing RTX 30 lineup at the latest prices. As per the official chart, AMD is offering anywhere from 5% to 30% lower prices vs the official MSRP. Following is the full breakdown:
- Radeon RX 6950 XT - $949 (Was $1099 US)
- Radeon RX 6900 XT - $699 (Was $999 US)
- Radeon RX 6800 XT - $599 (Was $649 US)
- Radeon RX 6800 - $549 (Was $579 US)
- Radeon RX 6750 XT - $419 (Was $549 US)
- Radeon RX 6700 XT - $379 (Was $479 US)
- Radeon RX 6650 XT - $299 (Was $399 US)
- Radeon RX 6600 XT - $239 (Was $329 US)
- Radeon RX 6500 XT - $169 (Was $199 US)
- Radeon RX 6400 - $149 (Was $159 US)
The prices mentioned here are the new MSRPs and we have been seeing these and even lower prices at various retailers over the last several weeks.
The biggest drop in price is for the 6900 XT which has been the flagship for two years before getting replaced by the Radeon RX 6950 XT. The card gets a price cut of 30% and falls down to $699 US which is a very impressive price point for its performance but given how close we are to the next-gen RDNA 3 "Radeon RX 7000" GPUs, it wouldn't be a wise decision to get this card right now as prices can fall dramatically once AMD will reveal the performance of its next-generation flagship.
