Some manufacturers have lowered the price of some Navi 21 graphics cards

Recently, AMD published a blog post titled “Building an Enthusiast PC,” reminding gamers that both memory capacity and performance of graphics cards are equally important. AMD’s intentions are clear, partly targeting NVIDIA’s recently released Ada Lovelace architecture-based graphics card, the GeForce RTX 4070, priced at $599.

As GeForce RTX 4070 cards from various manufacturers hit the market, AMD’s partners have also reduced prices for some Navi 21 GPU products. The once-flagship Radeon RX 6950XT from ASRock’s Phantom Gaming series has dropped to $629.99, and with discounts applied, it can be acquired for just $609.99, only about $10 higher than the GeForce RTX 4070’s official suggested retail price. Simultaneously, Gigabyte’s Radeon RX 6800 card has been lowered to $469.99. However, supply for this product has always been limited, with AMD’s partners historically focusing on the Radeon RX 6800XT and RX 6900XT, the former currently priced at around $539.99.

AMD’s Navi 21 GPU, based on the RDNA 2 architecture, has consistently exhibited commendable performance in traditional rasterization, particularly at the 2K resolution, which many gamers currently prefer. AMD’s Radeon RX 6800/6900/6950 series all come equipped with 16GB of memory, ensuring gamers need not worry about insufficient memory capacity at this stage—a key focus in AMD’s recent promotions.

Supply for the GeForce RTX 4070 graphics card is abundant, allowing gamers to easily locate relevant products through e-commerce platforms, with stock readily available. Furthermore, a considerable number of models are being sold at NVIDIA’s official suggested retail price.
