BPC have joined the price cuts. If you can't wait this is an alternative to ASRock's 6600 XT, a bit cheaper with free shipping. If you can wait I think we might be seeing more downward pressure.

    The Crypto crash + recession will definitely bring the prices further down. Hopefully, my 1070 will survive till then.

      recession?

      My 1070 is still kicking away nicely. I do want to get into some of the new serious games but my backlog is like 250+ games so I've got some catching up anyway

      • +1

        I dont think I will ever catch up and my back up is just 20 AAA games - blame netflix, disney, OZB etc for that.

        1070 will serve you very well :) no need to even consider these amd options for now they seem like a side grade.

    • Tough spot. If you want to upgrade a 1070 anything faster will cost you $550. Could go rx6600 but you lose all the other features along with 50% narrower memory bandwidth. Kind've like upgrading an ED Fairmont to an EL Futura if you jump to AMD. Whereas a 3060 is more an ED Fairmont to an EL Fairmont.

      Don't let fanboys tell you an RX6600 is a Fairmont. It has no features like your 1070. It's a Futura.

    Don't pay anything more than $300 for the end of life of this AMD RDNA 2 architecture GPU 6600.

      No way you're going to to get this price at launch for the new generation

        Exactly, people seem to think next gen will magically fix every problem ongoing with the pc market, in reality only employees at nvidia/amd/intel actually know what will happen. Next gen could be really power inefficient, it could be incredibly expensive.

        • They are not power inefficient as they are using better Nodes and architecture. No, they wont be incredibly expensive as demand for mining is dying and prices of GPUs are already normalising. Just might have to wait a bit after the release date to get your hands on one if you want it close to RRP.

            @John Doh: The thing is, current gpu’s are more than sufficient for most people, especially with the mid-low end cards it’s better to buy it now then wait a year for a possibly worthwhile gpu.

            • @Pugkin: There is nothing called more than sufficient. Next gen console ported games will be demanding. UE5 is so so good, you dont want to lower settings. My point is we are so close to next gen. Like just a few months away, this is not the time to buy a GPU unless you absolutely want one! Next gen GPUs will definitely take lower hit on performance when RT / FSR2 /DLSS2 are turned on. My 1080 is still strong and I am gonna wait till dec to get my hands on a 4080/7800XT. If I had a RX290, I wouldnt have waited and would have pounced on one of the afterpay 3070Ti deals.

              • @John Doh: “Nothing called more than sufficient” my Vega 7 in my 5700g has been more than sufficient for games I play. Only reason I’m getting a 3060 ti (if they ever go down in price) is because I want to start experimenting with video production software that requires more

                • @Pugkin: For most people an iGPU is just fine depending on what they play. Technically one can play games on a mobile as well. These GPUs are bought by gamers mostly. What I have seen in Australian market is that most prefer to have atleast XBOX or PS or equivalent PC for gaming. Atleast all the people I know in office have one. A 6600 is less powerful than a PS5. And there is no point in buying a GPU so close to the next release unless you badly want one. No matter how much less of a GPU you want, the next gen will be better for a similarly priced GPU.

                  • @John Doh: Yes but that doesn’t mean we all have to hold out until next gen, if someone needs l 6900xt or 3090 performance then Waiting is worthwhile, but this is the mid-low end, 30 series has been out for a long while, but 3050 was only released a few months ago. All I’m really saying is us poor people aren’t gonna wait 18 months

      you could say that this architecture is 'EOL' in terms of desktop cards, i guess, but this card itself definitely isn't EOL. you're not gonna see new cards in this price bracket from amd or nvidia for a long while yet.

    what is the true MSRP for 6600 in AUD??

    • +3
    • +4

      Why would the true MSRP matter?

      It was a massively inflated MSRP due to the (finally improving) GPU crisis, so it was even more irrelevant to any real prices than the usual MSRPs (though I suppose some would say relevance can't go lower than zero).

    What's equivalent to Radeon RX 6600 in Nvidia terms?

  • +1

    Though I doubt a Gigabyte RX 6600 XT would be equivalent to a 3060 TI though if it is close, the price at $449 is not to shabby

    • Not even 6700xt can beat 3060ti at 4k.

      • Fr, can't wait to play fortnite at 60fps in 4k on my 3060ti. Screw 1080p

      • Not even the 3090ti can beat the 6950xt at 4k.

    • +4

      It's in between 3060 and 3060ti with new AMD drivers it can get close to the 3060ti in some games, none of the cards in this bracket are meant for 4k, 1080 or 1440 is their intended target res. If you dont need DLSS or ray tracing (which I wouldn't even bother with for these cards), then the XT is good value for money right now…

  • +1

    Using Hardware Unboxed most recent benchmarking, here's cost per frame of both cards at 1080p Med (lower is better):

    6600XT 122fps @ $449: $4.09
    6600 109fps @ $399: $3.66

    • +2

      the maffs seem off

    • +1

      LMAO did you do the division on an abacus?

      $449 / 122 = $3.68

      • Lol, I accidentally did it as $499 instead of $449… Thanks for picking that up, it did seem wrong that they were so far apart!

        Doesn't seem like I can edit or delete the original comment now :(

          All good, tossing up between the two, so cheers for the benchmarks.

          Looks like the XT is sold out already, but hoping for a better model at this price soon.

          • @Teebytok: Yeah, I've got the 6600 Eagle, it's a cheap card but still very quiet flat out. At these prices the XT was a no-brainer

  • +1

    Is the 6600xt good enough for elden ring?

    • +2

      My RX6600 (not even the XT version) at 1440p max settings averages 56FPS according to AMD drivers game panel. :)
      So yes..its more then .. games capped at 60fps anyways
