    So, I suppose those are the true console tier gpus? Interesting for casual gaming. I wonder which of those two really performs like XSX/PS5... :)

    There will be lots of benchmarks for 3rd party titles between PS5 - XSX - RX 6700/RX 6700XT - 3060TI/3070, for sure.

    XT version have the same power usage as rx580, impressive. January? Nice.

    So now an 350 - 500 $ cards are for casual gamers and console level graphics ?

    Sad, really sad.

    I'm afraid these will just replace current 5000 at their prices, but the 6700 looks amazing on paper.
    If only they'd lunch these at less than 350€, I'd very much do anything for a 6700 at 300€ but I know it won't happen.

    I'm worried about the low stream processor core count, even though I kind of expected it. If it's the same as with 5700 (XT), how much more performance can we expect? Is it mainly from the clocks? But since the power consumption is quite low, I can't imagine the clocks being at 2.5GHz. I guess the reviews will tell the truth. It's not going to match 3060 Ti in RT, I reckon, so the traditional work performance better be higher for the card to be a viable choice! Of course if 3060 Ti ends up costing more than 500 euros and thus being automatically out of the question, 6700 (XT) will look a whole lot better, unless they are also absurdly expensive.

    The big issue is indeed the high prices. Even without the stock shortages, for the middle class GPUs to be $400-500 is too much, they should be under $400. If that wasn't enough now we have these crazy times and not even the already high $400 MSRP price of a 3060 Ti will be kept. They will be over $500+, like we already see the 3070 not being $500, but $600+ in most of the world... The same goes for Radeon cards, although the price gouging is a little less, still they cost more than MSRP.

    Not sure if these cards were intended to be used with RT. You are correct that core count might be an issue, not just for RT but also when there is a DLSS solution which would share the same resources.

    These are also GCN based, which AMD made specifically to be cheap. There are still decent alternatives now around these price points in the current market.

    Nvidia had similar prices back then. Also a "cheapo" architecture? Actually, how do u make a "cheap" architecture at all?? or were those chips 1/2 the physical size of a nv3060/rx6700??

    How comes the top 2 GPU companies in the world have not made any performance/price improvement in the 100-300 price bracket for the last 3 years, but they did in the 800-1000 one?

    "Moore's law" is crying in its grave (cuz lets face it, it died 10 years ago).

    Well there's no definite answer to that.
    The price of midrange gpus definitely shifted upwards overtime. It can be for many causes . Inflation, COVID-19 etc etc . But also it can be due to companies' syndicated effort to generate more revenue.

    Pascal also like Polaris were not new designs, just built off of previous designs. They also both had far less transistors, and did not need a portion of the build just to be taken by the cooling solution.

    I think that, unless there's a cartel from AMD and Nvidia, there's nothing inherently wrong with what they're doing.
    If people are willing to pay more money for their products, they'd be fools not to accept it.

    the right price ? is to not pay the same price as a whole console package for only the video card, consoles that can play games with the same quality as those 500€ "mid range".

    If the 6700 or 6700 XT have VRM on the right side and NXZT Kraken G12 support them, then I'll upgrade to this GPU instead of the RX 6800 (or RTX 3070) and not because of the price.

    Current 2020 GPUs don't seem to support this. My priority is to upgrade my GTX1080 without sacrificing silence. (my current gpu does 19.2 db(A) in full load and I don't want to increase this noise).

    Second priority is max TDP and price of the card.
