    These could be pretty good for 1080p if they have poor hashrate. People need 200$ GPUs that would run modern titles medium/high at 1080p ....

    no, the RX 6600 barely reach that and those are less powered than the RX 6600.
    *edit* i forgot that it depend on country

    Just went to a major online store here in Portugal, to check prices.
    The RX 6600 goes for 600 to 700 euros.
    I even found a 6600XT for 1073 euros.

    Jeez, just as I'd thought pricing in my neck of the woods is nuts, I see your post and go :eek::eek::eek:

    Locally, I can find a Gigabyte RX 6600 Eagle for 546 Euro, and a PowerColor Fighter RX 6600 for 494 Euro (local $ converted to Euro) and a Sapphire Nitro+ RX 6600XT for 631 Euro. Prices in Portugal is just outta whack!

    Portugal is a bit of a sh*thole.
    So these prices are expected.

    4GB cards can't mine ETH as the DAG file is 4.5GB ish, could mine ETC though but ROI would be long.

    That i had in mind. Yet 4gb is enough for 1080p mostly.

    It is getting pretty... how to say it.. on the verge of not being enough, that is my experience with a 4gb card at least....

    290X 4GB here. I have to agree. Though it's still just enough to hang in there until the market collapses or the world ends.

    its not enought even for 1080p. 4gb = low/medium textures.

    Even if they aren't suitable for mining, the general market situation would likely drag their prices up. With most cards out of the budget of regular folks, any card with a humane price would see extra demand, even if it wasn't satisfactory under normal circumstances. Consequently stores are likely to raise its price to fall in line with the rest of the selection. Of course if that stops it from selling, we might see its price fall before the other cards. Currently it seems like nobody expects graphics card prices to drop to sensible levels even in 2022. That's natural, of course, with the EU and USA doing nothing about the crypto.

    4GB, and still using AMD's sub-par GPU encoding tech, no thanks.

    Depending on a game , most GPUs with 4GB don't have power to run high . And most game it is still cutting it ( even on 1440p).
    Even demaning game like RDR2 doens't have problem with 4GB on 1080p.

    A 4Gb RX 6500 XT will only make sense at a reasonable price. And, by "reasonable price" I mean what the AIB partners will actually sell them for, not some MSRP fantasy. And personally, I'd say anything approaching $179 USD, would fall somewhere between "outrageous" and "completely outrageous." AMD needs to make this the 2022-equivalent of the GT 1030, in the sense that the launch-price for that little squeaker was $79.

    $149 for the triple-fan ASUS ROG Strix OC sounds about right; $129 for the Power Color Take-It-Or-Leave-It model sounds even better.

    I suspect they could get about 6-billion dies out of a single 200mm wafer, and I'd bet a dollar we're looking at a 64-bit memory interface on the PCB. This should *not* be another overpriced graphics card. We have had enough of those from both outfits.

    Most games today have high resolution textures are those does not effect the performance. Forza 5 have a warning for 4gb gpus if you have use higher quality settings.

    6g for 1080p, 8g for 1440p
    and frankly you'll have a bigger chance of running 1440 on 6g than 1080 on 4g,it's a 50% vram size increase while 1080 to 1440 does not increase texture requirements by 50%.more like 10-20%.4K is a big step in vram usage,but not 1440p.
