Radeon RX 6600 XT launch day is here, and depending on the retailer, the usability is both good and poor.No online retailer Sell any RX 6600 XT graphics card 9 a.m. Eastern Standard Time (card issue time). However, some of Micro Center’s physical stores have more than 100 RX 6600 XTs available for purchase. According to employees, this is the RDNA2 card with the largest inventory in a single Micro Center location in history.
This Radeon RX 6600 XT It is AMD’s latest mid-range graphics card. It contains 2048 cores, 32 CUs and 8GB of GDDR6 memory. The suggested retail price is US$380. This graphics card is AMD’s cheapest RDNA 2 graphics card to date, with similar competitive performance to the RTX 3060 12GB, and is one of the cheapest graphics cards. Best graphics cardAnd RTX 3060 Ti.
The results of the Micro Center store are spectacular. Rich Carroll, product manager of Micro Center, told us that there are more than 2,000 RX 6600 XT graphics cards in 25 locations across the country. As of 3:40 pm Eastern Time, each store still has stock.
We confirmed this by going to the MicroCenter in Denver, Colorado, where there are more than 100 RX 6600 XTs waiting to be purchased on the store shelves. The models on the shelf include:
|GIGABYTE Gaming Overclocking||459.99 USD|
|GIGABYTE Gaming OC Pro||479.99 USD|
|ASUS ROG Strix||549.99 USD|
|MSI Machinery 2X||459.99 USD|
|Power Color Fighter||379.99 USD|
|PowerColor Hellhound||USD 399.99|
|PowerColor Red Devils||449.99 USD|
|Sapphire Nitro+||479.99 USD|
However, the cards are removed from store shelves relatively quickly. ROG Strix version and PowerColor Red Devil version were sold out when we arrived, and only one Sapphire Nitro+ model was left in stock. Therefore, 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 gets a fully loaded RX 6600 XT 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.
Viewing the RX 6600 XT on Amazon, Memory Express and other vendors will cause the listing to appear unavailable and have no pricing, or no card listing at all. Newegg has 15 cards on the market this afternoon, but all of them are out of stock.
This leaves the pre-built market (see The best gaming computer) As the only solution for purchasing RX 6600 XT, many suppliers 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.
However, 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, AMD or its AIB partners are really messed up when shipping cards to online retailers. We are not sure if AMD’s strategy is to ship cards to Micro Center in bulk. But this theory can definitely explain why Micro Center has so many 6600 XTs.Either way, let us hope that AMD can continue to make enough RX 6600 XT to reduce Nvidia’s rule In the mid-market.
