    Basically what the 6500xt should have been.
    Priced to high to beat a dead horse.
    Unless I find a RX6600 for cheap, this will be the gpu I get for my HTPC.

    Especially when a RTX 2060/RX 5600xt goes for $700 used.....

    So after 5 years the only cards with a msrp close to that of the Rx580 offer either less performance (amd one) or +/- 25% increase (this card).
    At an average of 5% per year... Moore's statement is more than dead.

    And that's before considering that since this card can mine Eth (has enough memory to do so) the prices will be much higher.

    Thanks for the review.
    I wish Hebert you include a section for Undervolting these cards. Since they run hot and consume high power power (especially for higher end like xx80 and xx80ti). Plus a good number of them can even clock higher with lower voltage since they run more comfortable not hitting their power limit if Undervolted.

    Awful product as all the recent GPU launches but light years ahead of the 6500XT, basically at this point the 6500XT should be boycotted by everyone.

    Thanks for going through these.

    I wonder where the old cheapo GPUs went with basic coolers. All of these are apparently equipped with overbuilt everything - driving up price. Even if it's not that much more expensive to put a big cooler on it, it allows them to place a higher price tag on it just because it being a "TWIN SILENT DUAL" or "TRIFORCE COOLING" or whatever - it's making me long for the days where you could buy a single slot cooler on a cheap card and install a proper cooling solution from Zalman or whatever on there and have a great value product.
