    $379 for 1080p VGA?:confused:
    I guess next generation of VGAs will be even more expensive.
    It looks like my present VGA is the last one until it works and just need to find an other hobby after all this

    I always buy a bunch of high end video cards but when the price of entry level GPU hits the price of a console , that is messed up. Well I also guess console/PC not much difference anymore, which is also a shame .It is all about the dollar and that is the way it should be. Supply and Demand,if there is no demand then the price will drop.

    This doesn't really sound like an entry level GPU though.

    They could have charged $600 and it would have still flew off the shelves instantly. People have completely lost their minds. Seriously, gamers will pay anything to get a GPU. There are no limits.
    If rumors about next gen are true, you will have RTX Titan cards going for $5000 and people will buy it and brag about it, like lots of people. I didn't know everyone was so loaded with cash. $1200 is peanuts these days and will be decidedly mid range. I swear they could release a GPU for $10,000 and you'd see them all over the forums.

    I recently bought a DJI drone for less than the price of this ripoff card.
    Having more fun with it than with any video game!

    PC gaming is dead (at least for me).

    this will not last the moment the stimulus cash dry out and the mining will not be profitable at all with those cards their "value" will drop like a rock and none will be able to sell em even at msrp ...so far it happen twice third time is the charm ! ((the other 2 times was no stimulus ))

    This card is going to be starved for memory bandwidth. No wonder AMD is claiming it's a GPU for 1080p.
    They know that at 1440p, performance is going to suffer.

    Hardware Unboxed made a test where they clocked the 6700XT at the same clock speed as the 5700XT.
    These cards have the same shader count. The result was that these cards have the same IPC.
    The 5700XT has a 256bit bus, with no L3 cache. The 6700XT has 192bit bus, but with 96MB of L3 cache.

    The 6600XT with just 128bit bus and only 32MB of L3 cache is very limited in memory bandwidth situations.

    I'd honestly buy one if it was priced correctly.

    You should probably aim for 6700xt when the prices drop.

    I really can't see those dropping from $1200AU down to $300/$400AU... if AMD go ahead and actually release a real medium range video card with a real medium range video card price tag, I will buy it.

    Well the power consumption looks about right. But that bus puts me right off. Surely it should have been 192bit.

    The most ridiculous thing in my opinion is that the online retailers are still selling GTX 1050 Ti for more than I paid for a RX 470 at release.. the RX 470 being $279, and the 1050 Ti as of today being $369.... wtf

    Yea there is simply no defending that price point, which won't even exist as this is only being sold by AIB's so it will more than likely never be at MSRP. Expect more around the $399 range which is absurd for a 1080p card.

    Imagine if this was at $299 it would have been an insane value card and probably would of taken over the 1060 in the steam hardware survey or come pretty close.

    Also why are all the cards so big? It's not really that power hungry yet all the AIB's want to splat on large 2-3 fan coolers and make the cards super long? Sure this is to save money on machining and tooling new coolers but still its a bit silly.

    I really want to see AMD release a 75W GPU using RDNA2 that doesn't require a power connector much like the 750Ti something around the 16-20CU range maybe with lower clocks around the 1.5-1.8GHz range and 16MB infinity cache and 4-6GB G6 memory. Market it as a simple drop in graphics upgrade for people with prebuilt PCs and target the esports gamers and LAN centers in Asia. For around the $100-$150 range. If it can game at 1080p low to medium settings at 60fps this thing would sell like crazy too me.

    But AMD (or Nvidia too) would probably charge $300 for a card like this right now :/

    Man, if the prices were correct, not his high priced crap, I'd snag a regulaur 6600 for my HTPC. This GT 1030 2gb sucks.
