Finally, like the 6600 XT, the non-XT version is limited to PCIe 4.0 x8 bandwidth. So when installed in a PCIe 4.0 system this is a non-issue, but performance related problems could arise when installed in a system that only supports PCIe 3.0, which currently is most systems.
Normally in the UK the prices are pretty much a £=$ for GPUs. The 6500XT is selling for £199.99 at the usual suspects (which is still over priced for the performance) the same price as they are selling the 1050Ti and 1650 (non super). It looks good value in that comparison.....
I think they land about the same as MSRP when they launched last time I checked: 400 to 500.How much do used GTX 1070s usually go for nowadays? That seems like another decent compromise
I think techspot's repeated bashing of the 6500xt in its own review, let alone being constantly called out in this review for being a worthless pile of garbage, makes the point pretty clear.I think it’s disgusting that Techspot didn’t compare the 3050 to a 6500XT in the ray tracing tests because they didn’t want to “be so cruel”. You mean you don’t want to see AMD get its *** handed to it? I’ve seen 6500XTs on sale in shops now and they have “ray tracing capable” written on the back of the box. It’s the biggest lie I think I’ve ever seen written on the side of a graphics card box and Techspot for some reason isn’t calling that bullshit out. Especially as I have no doubt Techspot would call it out if it was the other way around. They would “be so cruel” to Nvidia, their beef with them is highly publicised.
It's gonna be inadequate once we're out of the cross-gen period, but that might last a while yet. PS5 GPU is more or less equivalent to a 2070 Super and Xbox Series X is somewhere between 2080 Super/3060 Ti and 2080 Ti/3070 (without DLSS)It's got "CONSOLE PORT gaming" written all over it.
