This Radeon RX 6600 XT The launch day is here, and the usability is both good and poor, depending on the retailer.No online retailer Sell any RX 6600 XT graphics card 9 AM Eastern Standard Time (the time when the card is issued). 6600 XT may not be one of them Best graphics card Based on specifications and performance, it is at the same level as our Radeon RX 5700 XT GPU benchmark Hierarchical structure, but if you can really find a stock card, it is better than most other GPUs.
Obviously, all the physical stores in the micro center have acquired a relatively large industry. Our GPU auditor checked his local store in Denver, where they initially had more than 100 RX 6600 XT cards for launch, many of which are still available for purchase. According to some employees, this is the largest number of graphics cards Micro Center has received in the past year.
Radeon RX 6600 XT is AMD’s latest mid-to-high-end graphics card. It contains 2048 cores, 32 CUs and 8GB GDDR6 memory. The suggested retail price is US$380.This card is AMD’s cheapest RDNA 2 graphics card to date, and its performance lies between RTX 3060 12GB And RTX 3060 Ti, depending on the game. In our review, we worry that the card will sell out as quickly as other Ampere and RDNA 2 GPUs, but this has not been the case so far.
We received information from Rich Carroll, the merchandise manager of Micro Center, who told us that there are more than 2,000 RX 6600 XT graphics cards in 25 locations across the country, and as of 3:40 pm Eastern Time, there are still stocks in each store. We went to the MicroCenter in Denver, Colorado to confirm this, where dozens of RX 6600 XT cards are still on store shelves waiting to be purchased.

At the location we checked, it was strange that most of them were the most expensive models, all sold out. ASUS graphics cards disappeared, as did MSI Gaming X and PowerColor Red Devil. Only one Sapphire Nitro+ and a few Gigabyte Gaming Pro cards are left. At the same time, there are at least a dozen or more PowerColor Fighter and Hellhound cards, as well as a large number of Gigabyte Eagle and Gaming cards. We can’t talk about the availability of other stores, but these cards seem to be moving from store shelves relatively quickly. If there is a local micro-center near you, it is best to start driving as soon as possible.
I am very happy to see that Micro Center received the RX 6600 XT health supplement on the day of its release, giving local customers a chance to finally get a graphics card on MSRP. However, this is not the case with online retailers.an examination Radeon RX 6600 XT On Amazon, Memory Express, and other vendors, the listings are either unavailable and have no pricing, or there is no card listing at all. Newegg lists 15 cards, But all appear to be out of stock-they are clearly sold through Newegg Shuffle.
This leaves the pre-built market (see The best gaming computer) As the only online solution for purchasing RX 6600 XT, multiple vendors are already selling RX 6600 XT machines, including Network power, CLX games, and AVA direct connection.
It seems that the scalpers have no luck to get a new graphics card. eBay.com also only showed a list of RX 6600 XT, which is priced at $699.99. So far, there is no other list.This will almost certainly change in the next few days, and we would definitely like to know the pricing in our GPU price index.
If you are a European resident, you may be more fortunate to buy an RX 6600 XT. ebuyer.com There are currently several Sapphire and MSI RX 6600 XT models in stock, with prices ranging from 369.99 Euros to 419.99 Euros. Other European retailers also have stocks.
Unfortunately, for American buyers, neither AMD nor its AIB partners seem to be able to provide online retailers with a sufficient number of cards. We are not sure if AMD’s strategy is to ship the cards to Micro Center in bulk, or whether the online store just packs the cards or restricts purchases in other ways.As far as Micro Center is concerned, its policy is to sell only one GPU to individuals every 30 days-one of them is any GPU model, so you can’t buy RX 6600 XT and GTX 1050 Ti, which are the only other GPUs in Denver’s inventory ($299.99).
I hope AMD can continue to produce enough RX 6600 XT to reduce Nvidia’s rule In the mid-market. We are not very excited about mid-range graphics cards that usually cost more than $400, but in this market, the performance obtained is roughly equivalent to the RTX 2070 level, and usually ahead of the RTX 3060, almost as good as it. Will the price be? Maintaining such a low level remains to be seen.
