@Steve Quick question: When the RX 6600 XT is released, could you test it and the 3060 (ti) on some lower end / mid range CPU like 2600X, 2700x, 3600, 8400-10400 as well?

Personally I am looking at something in the 6600XT/ 3060Ti range but I‘m curious how they will perform on my 2700X rather than how they perform on a high end system.

People with that kind of CPU are probably looking at better GPU SKU anyhow and I‘m really curious what the actual performance difference on my CPU performance tier is.

These things will never come back to the pricing we are accustomed to. $649 for a 3080 will be like when you hear your parents talk about how much they paid for their house.

My suggestion is, if you can’t afford it just move on and try a different hobby. Its got to be exhausting to be perpetually angry at the industry.

My opinion too. It will never come back where it was. Middle class will be 500$ and highend 1000$. No more GTX 1060 for MSRP 250$....
