It looks like AMD's new Radeon RX 6500XT which was supposed to launch at MSRP is not really going to launch at MSRP as per some preliminary reports from CowCotlands.
The AMD RX 6500XT was announced few days back for $199 and AMD said that it would be the most accessible card but in reality it seems like that the Silicon Shortage and mining craze will make it the most accessible card for scalpers.
The Radeon RX 6500XT
The AMD Radeon RX 6500XT is an Entry Level 1080p card that will have 4GB of GDDR6 memory. It has a Pcie gen4.0 x4 interface and has cut down encoding capabilities compared to the bigger names lin RDNA2 Lineup. Few days back AMD President and CEO Dr Lisa Su herself confirmed that the $199 Price wasn't a placeholder rather it will be the price at which the card would launch. We sincerely hope that it is true.
