Gigabyte RX 6950XT graphics card for 2,400 USD
The fastest RDNA2 desktop graphics card is coming.
According to the first retailer listing of the upcoming AMD Radeon flagship, the card might cost almost as much as RTX 3090 Ti. The graphics card from Gigabyte Gaming series has been listed by Australian retailer for 3,241 AUD (2,400 USD).
Although this is a very fresh listing and clearly a placeholder that mentions RX 6900XT SKU, the product code matches the leak from Eurasian Economic Commission regulatory office, as shown below.
With such a price tag, the card is almost as expensive as RTX 3090 Ti GAMING series, which retail at 3,326-3,339 AUD. One might argue if RX 6950XT should cost that much though, considering the 6900XT cards listed by the same retailer go for 1,876 to 2,248 AUD.
The list of upcoming Gigabyte RX 6950XT, RX 6750XT and 6650XT SKUs now public thanks to the Gigabyte filing to EEC:
|Gigabyte RX 6x50XT Graphics Cards|
|VideoCardz.com||RX 6950XT||RX 6750XT||RX 6650XT|
|AORUS||GV-R695XTAORUSX WB-16GD||GV-R675XTAORUS E-12GD||–|
|GAMING||GV-R695XTGAMING OC-16GD||GV-R675XTGAMING OC-12GD||GV-R665XTGAMING OC-8GD|
The company plans three 6950XT SKUs, including AORUS Xtreme WaterForce (with waterblock) and two models based Gaming series. Furthermore, Gigabyte will introduce three RX 6750XT and four 6650XT models soon.
According to our information, AMD has pushed back the launch date from April 20th to May 10th. There is a chance that we might get a teaser or official confirmation from AMD sooner. Thus far, AMD has not confirmed it is launching a refreshed RX 6000 cards with 18 Gbps memory.
