    Pitted against the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and 3070 we test XFX offering of the Radeon RX 6700 XT, in specific a rather THICK MERC 319 model. Things once again look good for this product series. Armed with a triple-fan cooler and a fully customized design XFX manages to deliver.

    It'll be nice to buy half decent cards at regular price. They're either unavailable or you get ripped off.

    That's the new reality, thanks to COVID-19 and its domino effect of worldwide shipping and supply. That's why I'm pretty glad I'd jumped on a Nitro+ RX 6900 XT, though at that point in time when I'd paid about 1350USD for the card, I'd thought I was paying too much (even for a semi hardcore AMD fanboy).

    But, looking at prices of RX 6900 XT's now, I guess I'd made the right'ish choice by getting it at the time I did. Surprisingly, supply of the RX 6900 XT's (and the RTX 3090) here in my neck of the woods is pretty decent, it's the ever skyrocketing prices that's proving to be a formidable hurdle. The price of the RTX 3090 did stagnate somewhat because it'd started off ridiculously overpriced to be begin with....at about 2000-2300USD.

    My GTX 1070 works when it wants to, and to get it working I found out is to unfortunately resort to physical abuse on the computer. Which I absolutely hate doing..... obviously.
    All UK sellers have no stock, and am buggered if am going on fleabay.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the informative article! Can someone help me with a question please ?

    I'm planning to buy the
    • $479 SWFT 309 Core Edition – No Overclock – 2.0 slot cooler –2321 Base, 2425MHz game, 2581MHz boost
    as apparently it's available here and the cheapest. What does the "2.0 slot cooler" mean?

    Thank you!
