This MSRP is just a very bad joke.

This MSRP is just a very bad joke.

They just pretty much rereleased the 5700XT with poor Ray Tracing support.

Nvidia settles price-fixing lawsuit Out-of-court deal cut with plaintiffs
Tony Smith Tue 30 Sep 2008 // 08:06 UTC
Nvidia has settled a class action lawsuit that alleges it conspired with AMD to fix graphics chip prices.
The proposed settlement, outlined in the company's latest filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), offers initial plaintiffs $112,500 and a further $1.7m to all the others who subsequently signed up when the lawsuit attained class-action status.

I hope none of this is currently happening again

ID: h70wvtc

Yup. I'd rather wait for 6700xt at a good price. Probably not this year...

Even the 6700xt isnt good at msrp compared to its siblings. It has 20 less CUs compared to the 6800 but clocked way higher to lessen the gap (which leaves no oc headroom and if you oc the other cards the gap widens), even then is still 30% weaker than 6800 at stock clocks in Doom with RT (

/comments/obo98s/doom_eternal_4k_raytracing_benchmark/)" class="reddit-press-link" target="_blank" rel="noopener">

Has less Vram and way worse cooler (by 10 degrees according to Techpowerup ).

For 100$ more you get 30% uplift (by far the biggest jump for 100$), 4gb more VRam and way better cooler (which many people already pay for to get better AIBs)

6700xt should have been 400$.

Qualcomm just said their chip shortages will last until 2H 2022 so there's zero chance you will find Ampere or RDNA2 cards anywhere near MSRP during their active lifespan (Qualcomm also gets their chips from TSMC). By the time MSRP is in reach, RDNA3 and Lovelace will be out. The RTX 3060 is still at around 600-700 USD in most places around the world, the 6600XT will land at the same price seeing as AMD's supply seems just as incapable of meeting demand as NVIDIA's.

ID: h71je2j

not this year...

At which point you may as well wait for the mid-late 2022 AMD 7XXX / Nvidia 4XXX chips.

Fab supply is still ramping and the mining craze is starting to die down a bit again.

ID: h725f13

Same, I'm waiting for a decent priced RX 6700 XT or RX 6800. Nine months in, I might as well hold out and hope for better prices by the end of the year. If enough AMD cards rot on shelves, AIBs might start mail-in rebate promotions to sell them at the end of the year. Everything will depend on supply and demand of PCB components, the economy, and logistics.

I guess Intel is our best hope for a better price-to-performance GPU. I can't believe I'm betting on price-premium Intel to sell us a reasonably priced GPU, but this is the world we live in.

ID: h70ymni

What is it?

ID: h7103uv

380 USD

AMD themselves are even positioning it closer to the 3060 than the 3060 Ti yet the MSRP is closer to the 3060 Ti.

In a world where MSRP was normal for everything, I don’t really see the advantage of getting this over a 3060 Ti or 3060.

Of course, right now it’s practically impossible to get a 3060 for MSRP, even if you joined the EVGA queue soon after launch and nearly impossible for the 3060 Ti. I’m sure this won’t be much different though especially since this won’t have a model sold by AMD directly.

4 : Anonymous2021/07/30 06:00 ID: h71wpho

The biggest joke outside of the terrible "MSRP" is that it's AIBs only. So while before, a lucky few are able to get cards at MSRP from AMD's website, for this one... Not a chance. Least Nvidia still sells a 3060 Ti at MSRP on bestbuy when available which is a better buy even under normal circumstances.

5 : Anonymous2021/07/30 01:15 ID: h71244a

I'm sure it will sell out almost immediately, but if prices ever return to normal, at that price I'll just get a 3060 and take the extra vram and better features. Seeing AMD actually 1-up nVidia in overpricing is a real low.

6 : Anonymous2021/07/29 23:04 ID: h70licx

380$ lol. Rather spend the 20$ (when comparing msrp) and get the 3060 ti.

ID: h70m6g8

On retailers is going to be much higher. MSRP doesn't mean anything since January.

ID: h70ot4z

Yeah it means basically nothing. But its a baseline for the price. This wont probably be much cheaper than 3060 ti anyways.

7 : Anonymous2021/07/29 23:38 ID: h70pr9j

40% faster, 39% more expensive. 1% savings passed on to gamers. Thank you progress. Thank you.

ID: h71m1au

I have seen it. The 3dmark score is basically the product price. The higher the score, the pricier it is. That means every new generation of graphics cards only get more and more expensive.

8 : Anonymous2021/07/30 10:41 ID: h72goyo

Dumb MSRP, this needs to be shit on very bad in every avenue possible. The fact that this wont sell at MSRP being ridiculously overpriced is besides the point. AMD are trying to raise prices on midrange cards by acclimatizing people to so called BS new normal prices. Vote with your wallets people don't just buy these SKUs at these prices. IF you really have to the RTX 3060 Ti makes more sense feature wise and performance wise.

1080p card in 2021.. 379$


ID: h72e693

No wonder consoles are sold out 9 months after launch. I don't think GPU prices (MSRPs) would go down after the chip shortage/mining craze, so when 1080p gamers can buy a console for similar price and get better performance, why shouldn't they buy a console for gaming and still have a PC for other stuffs.

10 : Anonymous2021/07/30 04:42 ID: h71pxb7

What a ripoff and a bad joke.

11 : Anonymous2021/07/29 23:21 ID: h70nlbf

379? lol

12 : Anonymous2021/07/29 22:51 ID: h70jsji

$379, fuck that lmao

ID: h70liyj

It seems too pricy. We should not buy this hot mess! haha.

ID: h70m7tq

I checked just a few minutes ago and an RX 580 is going for $600 sometimes. This won't sell for MSRP.

We will be waiting a while.

13 : Anonymous2021/07/29 22:52 ID: h70jwvn

I expect AMD to adjust MSRP when this shortage is over. rather pay +20 for 3060ti or stick with 3060 for 50 savings + dlss.

14 : Anonymous2021/07/30 05:41 ID: h71v7ig

1080p card @$380, absolute joke..Even if there is a alien invasion going on this card shouldn't cross more than $300, period.

15 : Anonymous2021/07/30 04:27 ID: h71ofwh

What a piece of crap, the 3060 have the same price/performance while having a lot of extra goodies like 4GB more vram, better rtx performance & support, DLSS, more memory bandwith to handle 1440p gaming without relying on cripplingly small cache.

ID: h72ccpu

And for just $20 more than 6600xt (at msrp) the 3060 Ti is faster as well as having better rtx and DLSS. In a normal world 6600xt is just a terrible product but I guess AMD dont really care if they cant meet demand anyway

16 : Anonymous2021/07/30 05:06 ID: h71s54t

Do not buy this guys lol, I beg you. leave it on shelves

ID: h71z4yp

There probably isn't even going to be any left on the shelves.

17 : Anonymous2021/07/30 00:25 ID: h70vmlo

Well my rx 570 needs to hold a bit longer

Rtx 3050 ? Dg2 ? Mining crash ? Idk but what a hard time for us

ID: h7240kx

Doesn't the RX 570 still play games relatively well at 1080p?

18 : Anonymous2021/07/30 04:56 ID: h71r800

A worse 5700xt for more money, this is literal regression.

19 : Anonymous2021/07/30 08:27 ID: h727gnt

Nice, AMD trying to rob loyal fanboys
380$ for that crap, while NVidia can sell card at 330$ with bigger die and + 4GB vram
Scott Herkelman think that people is so stupid and will buy it?

20 : Anonymous2021/07/30 04:02 ID: h71lqjp

Remember when the 5700 XT cost $400 nearly 2 years ago? AMD makes all these efficiency gains with a better architecture but throws it all in the trash by putting it up another pricing tier. It should be less than $300. You would have to be absolutely nuts to buy this over a 3060 Ti if they're priced similarly.

21 : Anonymous2021/07/30 08:10 ID: h726apv

whoever is doing the pricing at amd needs to be fired. the stupid part is some people actually defend this bs. i once made a comment about being disappointed about the 6700xt costing so much and it shouldn't be more than 400. some guy commented back saying its faster than a 3060 ti and close to a 3070 so the price was justified. its barely faster than a 3060 ti and loses to a 3070 almost every time. so no sir the price isn't justified.

ID: h72gfpw

the stupid part is some people actually defend this bs.

mockingbird is an expert at shilling for AMD in any thread that dares to (rightfully) criticize them, including this one. Amazing PR mouthpieces despite not being paid by the company. It's so pathetic.

22 : Anonymous2021/07/30 05:56 ID: h71wga2

A 100$ increase from last gen, wtf. Seriously, do they think people aren't willing to pay just 20$ more for a much better card?

23 : Anonymous2021/07/30 07:22 ID: h722y3b

Don’t worry guys. They’re already sold out.

24 : Anonymous2021/07/30 09:06 ID: h72a4of

Image how little value these "lower-end" gpu's actually are. Same with 3060. Just little bit more for 3060ti which is every way better.

25 : Anonymous2021/07/30 14:36 ID: h735fg3

Slightly worse than expected. 3060Ti will absolutely curbstomp this card. This shouldnt have been more than either 3060 price is or above 349

26 : Anonymous2021/07/30 15:24 ID: h73byox

I hate this timeline.

Lots of great older games people can play from their back catalog... Recommend that direction for the next 6 months to a year. Save money on new games and new hardware until prices normalize. Msrp reference is the only thing that makes sense(3080ti excluded)

Imagine making the 3060 and 3060ti look like good value.

29 : Anonymous2021/07/30 03:23 ID: h71hgpx

379$ yeah AMD nice try, skip this card

AMD may thinking they are market leader in the GPU, they can give us very high Price

Really AMD, Intel is starting more good in pricing and then NVIDIA now looks more good in the price performance

Hard choice to buy AMD CPU + RADEON, all of AMD MSRP price is joke

ID: h720cij

Do you really think AMD cares?

AMD is selling every GPU that it can make.

30 : Anonymous2021/07/30 00:13 ID: h70u1gj

msrp sets the floor and is actually very important... higher the msrp the higher the cards will be regardless... but at 379- FUCK THEM!!!!!!! its a 300 card max GREEDY mofos

31 : Anonymous2021/07/30 04:22 ID: h71nv3s

AMD has become the villain.

For everyone's sakes, I hope intel mops the floor with Zen3D and Nvidia goes back to 30 to 40% performance uplifts against the best of AMD, or even Intel takes the value crown with DG2, because this is getting incredibly stupid
