ASUS Radeon RX 6800 XT TUF Gaming OC 16GB Video Card $1599 + Delivery @ BPC Tech

470

(They jacked up the price by $100 now, marking this as expired)

First launch price graphic card I see for a while. This is mid to high end AIB card, not the cheapest 6800 XT pricing, but unlike the burning Gigabyte cards, it runs cooler than most AIB cards, should still worth the money IMO.
For people who want to mine eth, this is not the most efficient current gen AMD card due to AMD hardware limits memory clock, so please leave this card to gamers.

    Damn good price, would have gotten this if I didn’t get my EVGA 3070ti
    This card is so much better

    •  

      Meanwhile I am waiting to see if there are any good integrations with FSR to make the RT perfomance a bit playable. If that does not happen in a few months, I will probably end up with a 3080 (assuming prices come down). Not that RTX/DLSS is making so much difference in todays games, but if I buy the card, I will use it for atleast 3 years, by then a lot of games will be RT focused.

      •  

        Why not upgrade when more games are RT focused and the next gen cards are out?

          Cause that would make sense and people love marketing hyperbole.

    Still too expensive. I want the real MSRP.

      this is close to MSRP, maybe $1400 will the lowest - wont drop below that

      Be aware, this is launch price. 6800 and 6800 XT are a bit overpriced, and Asus TUF is always on the pricy side, with premium board components and cooling. This is somewhat close to 3080 performance on non RTX benchmark (don't flaming me on this)

        It's better than the 3080 now with software updates that have gone out.

        That depends on the resolution. If you are a high refresh rate gamer on a 1080/1440P this would still be better, plus more vram is a plus (assuming RTX does not interest you much).

        •  

          Agreed, on another note, I think Nvidias 3080 and 3090 Gddr6x design is a bit flawed, many cards have very Vram high temperature, make me worry about longevity

          •  

            @s20525xxx: It's not the vram, it's the shitty thermal pads. Replaced mine and memory temps dropped from 110 to max 90

            •  

              @Juggernauto: Ye, it is but 90 is still high for vram, just my own opinion.

        Who cares what the launch price was, it was done so in the midst of massive price inflation, landing at a 60% premium over base MSRP.

        Is this a sign of things getting cheaper? Yes.

        Is it acceptable? No.

      They read your comment and then jacked it up $100

    Anyone know what the launch pricing of these cards were?

    I'm looking to buy a 6800XT once they get back to launch pricing in Australia (they won't get to RRP until next gen unfortunately)
    If anyone knows what the Red Devil 6800XT was selling for at launch that would be awesome too, because that's my ideal card.

      You might want to look at hardware unboxed past video on Red Devil 6800 XT card. I think they mentioned price there.

      The Red Devil 6800XT at launch was around $1250 at PCCG iirc.

      When I bought it in January , it was already $1399 for the non-Limited edition.

        $1250, what a price! Currently at $1799. If it gets under $1500 again for the red devil I'll buy into this gen. God the tech market sucks.

          Go back one step. The cryptocurrency market sucks!

    •  

      Red Devil and Sapphire Nitro SE were both around 1399 at launch. I was watching stock of both and these were the cheapest prices I saw. The red dragon had a few drops for 12xxish maybe that is what Hellcrusher is recalling.

        I'm certain the Red Devil 6800xt was $1249 at launch and the Limited edition was $1299.

        The Red Dragon was only $1199 or $1149 at launch.

        I was monitoring stock in the Discord channel and saw the $1299 LE Red Devil go OOS within seconds right before my eyes :(

      Yep, waiting for near $1K.

      ..for <aud$1500 ti (oh..3080)

    • +7 votes

      Yep, Don't lose perspective guys.

      $1500 was a whole mid-to-higher-end gaming PC, for decades, up until about a year ago.

      This insane once-in-a-lifetime GPU shortage won't last forever and is already starting to ease.

    6600XT is going to release at next month.
    The Performance is close to 3060ti, and MSRP is around 499 AUD.
    Let's see or hold for 40 series.

      Be aware, AMD partner's cards are quite a bit more expensive than reference card, unlike Nvidia.

    Still stings I passed up 6800XT at launch because I didn't want to spend $1100 on a gpu loll
