AMD now lets gamers pay less than $500 for 16GB GPUs

According to AMD, the starting price for Radeon graphics equipped with 16GB of memory has dropped below $500.

The AMD marketing team has lately become vocal about Radeon superiority over GeForce RTX series when it comes to memory options. The last-gen GPUs from Radeon RX 6900 and RX 6800 series are now reaching their record low pricing. This means that Radeon GPUs with 16GB memory are now available for $499 to $649.

This compared to NVIDIA options of RTX X070 SKUs shows a clear picture. Customers looking for GeForce GPUs will have to pay more for less memory. Similarly priced options from NVIDIA only come with 8 to 12GB of memory:

This price, of course, is not related to any of the newer RDNA3 GPUs. At $499 one can now find Radeon RX 6800 non-XT which has the same memory configuration as the 6800XT and 6900/6950XT models. There is currently no RDNA3 option for less than $762, which was the lowest price this week for Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics card.

Such claims might have consequences in the future, though. We all remember AMD’s claiming that 4GB VRAM is not enough for gaming, only for AMD to launch a Radeon RX 6500 XT 4GB card later. Therefore, claiming that Radeon GPUs with 16GB memory can cost just $499, will resound once the company launches anything with less memory but for more money.
