One of the fastest RDNA2 graphics cards finally hits the market. Yes, we are talking about the AMD Radeon flagship RX 6950XT. According to the first listing in the store, the card will likely cost as much as the RTX 3090 Ti. The Australian retailer has listed the graphics card at $2,400 (3,241 AUD).
Some of us may still be skeptical about this new offering. It’s a fairly new listing and most likely a placeholder listing the RX 6900XT SKU, but we can see that the product key matches the leak from the regulatory agency of the Eurasian Economic Commission.
The price is comparable to that of the RTX 3090 Ti Gaming series which sold for 3,326-3,339 AUD. Thanks to the Gigabyte filing with EEC, the list of Gigabyte RX 6950XT, RX 6750XT, and 6650XT SKUs has now been made public.
AMD has plans for three 6950XT SKUs, including the AORUS Xtreme WaterForce (with waterblock) and two models based on the Gaming series. In addition, Gigabyte is also introducing three RX 6750XT and four 6650XT models. As for the launch date, we’ve already heard that AMD is pushing the date to May 10 instead of the previously set date of April 20. As the date gets closer, there’s a good chance we’ll see an official teaser and confirmation from AMD itself soon.
