What Nvidia is presenting around the launch of the RTX 4000 series in terms of naming and pricing is considered bold by many critics. The prices are rising, card names suggest performance classes that were previously clearly assigned differently. As digital trends reports, AMD is showing excellent timing in announcing price cuts across the entire RX 6000 lineup.
RX 6000 vs. RTX 4000: AMD’s declaration of war on Nvidia
The new prices are currently only available in US dollars, so we still have to wait and see how they develop in euros. However, it seems certain that significant adjustments can be expected from the high-end model to the entry-level class.
AMD Radeon RX 6000 series new dollar list prices:
|New RRP||Old RRP|
|RX 6950 XT||$949||$1,099|
|RX 6900 XT||$699||$999|
|RX 6800 XT||$599||$649|
|RX 6750 XT||$419||$549|
|RX 6700 XT||$379||$479|
|RX 6650 XT||$299||$399|
|RX 6500 XT 4GB||$169||$199|
expected price war
With these new prices, the graphics card market should enter a very interesting phase. Soon AMD will introduce its Radeon RX 7000 series, in this regard the current price cuts are quite a normal adjustment. But it is also important to take a look at Nvidia.
Due to major upheavals in cryptocurrencies, the market is currently being flooded with used RTX 3000 cards. In addition, there are full warehouses at the dealers. For Nvidia, the high prices for the 4000 series are also a way to initially reduce the stock of the 3000 models. Of course, AMD wants to get involved in this business with its downwardly adjusted prices.
