AMD can’t help it sometimes. Nvidia makes a mistake and they just have to one-up them. With the timing of this launch, that’s exactly what the Radeon RX 6700 XT is - But could it still be good?

Kommentaarid

  • RX 6700 XT = 40 CUs vs RX 6800's 60. I don't know how I managed to not mention this. -AY

    • Thanks for the info.

    • Yes, this is likely the reason behind the release. To be able to better use the NAVI chip stock with bad CUs but still passing the high speed clock test. That's all. This is why often the second-highest tier is released (full die) then the ones under it. Then higher clocked variants of the ones under it, and finally the top line with the select full dies. Occasionally, if they delay release long enough they can have enough full dies with high clock rates to get a top clock model available in limited quantities at release. However, they will never have a top clock model of the cut reject dies at release, because testing resources beyond the basic A/B binning of potential top tier chips are dedicated to the full die chips.

    • Thx für updating but maybe the next video should be a comedy piece on why pc is dying thx to scalping. Because the reality is a tragedy right now where no one in their right mind should consider buying or upgrading because doing so is a massive loss. Doubling or trippling performance for 5x the price of the old components just doesn't make sense. We are in a situation where the old and new hardware are just insanely overpriced and just nothing is really worth it. I hope Game Developers will continue integrating mouse and keyboard support into console games because if you catch a Microsoft console on windows store it just is a better bargain than upgrading your 6 year old hardware with anything else out there. Don't buy from scalpers and forget ebay and even the serious retailers because no one offers a good bargain since more than a year now and it won't get better unless there will be global policy adjustments worldwide. It's a no win scenario for consumers and we have the right to be in rage about and call for justice (just no death threats to anyone!!!). If only those lawyers that currently file for copyright issues would change to hardware to hunt down scalpers for once we'd thank em.

    • So RTX or RX

    • Not gunna lie, it looks like a pokemon team Rocket card

  • AMD and other chip manufacturers will need to change in the next generation of chips to reduce power consumption to 35w or below.Power consumption is becomming more important than performance.

  • Anyone else like Anthony more than Linus Sorry Linus

  • Please stop basing your reviews on MSRP. It doesn’t matter what you SHOULD be able to buy the card for. A 3060ti is going to cost around $300 more on the second hand market.

  • dont get why you hating on it more gpus the easier is to get one i finally got a new gpu and it was this i can play warzone at 1440p now without putting it at 80% resolution

  • In a real-world market, the 6700XT isn't the best choice for the money, but I just sold my 2-year-old vega64 nitro for £540 which was more than £200 more than I paid for it new back in 2019, so I picked up one of these 6700xt's for £680 through a contact who had one and it was a nice upgrade for £140 as RTX 3070's are nearing £1,000 mark now.

  • A'ight boys the lower midrange is now 480$.

  • Seems like every Radeon card I get is badly tuned, runs too hot, and is still slower than whatever supposed nvidia equivalent. It's cool I can suddenly have 20 more frames with some futzing around, but I'm tired of having to do it. I was going to do a full AMD build but after seeing the price point and then the 6800XT price point, like you said - they have got to be joking.

  • You said... Many people will buy this but will you be happy you did? Well... I did and I am. It's a great card. Sold my 5700XT for the same price as I paid for this 6700XT and it is awesome. At 1440P in Escape from Tarkov I went from mid 70's to in the 100's in fps. Could not be happier. Selling the 5700XT meant free upgrade. Still think MSRP should have been $429 to have the value crown tho.

  • rtx 3060ti's are rarer than rocking horse shit and going by your ebay prices and what shops in Oz are pricing them and 3070's at, I feel that a card that is $300-$400 cheaper to buy AND in stock in Oz is not too bad. More so when the games I do play are the ones that the 6700xt does outperform the 3060-70s. Even get a notable improvement using Smart access memory with my 5600x in games such as RDR2 and Borderlands 3 Overpriced? no doubt about it, but after selling my 5700xt for $1000au to a fella that is probably going to mine with it, the extra $149au I had to shell out for the 6700xt was a no brainer.

  • 7:43 Yayyyy.... Unhackable 😂

  • when compared to my dying rx580, the 6700xt (when found at a reasonable price) is like a godsend

  • omg, so fat face!

  • GPU wise NVIDIA! Weak AMD!

  • Yes I'm , the only great card I could find in Brazil under USD 1000, much better than 3070

  • his voice is like a wise storyteller

  • Anthony is my fav purely cause of what a nice moddest dude he comes off as

  • i can't watch at this toad. OMFG

  • Check E-Bay why ?? Why should i check e-bay for Grafikscards thats stupid guys only scalper there use ur brain !

  • Damn dude I wish Anthony was my dad. I ain’t have a dad, but if I did I’d want it to be him.

  • I won a newegg shuffle and had the opportunity to buy gigabyte's rx 6700 xt 12gb eagle for $700 paired with an x570 aorus elite wifi for $220 (the exact same motherboard i already own). I will be selling the motherboard to a coworker for $160, so essentially I'll have paid $760 for it. The card seems to have a much better cooler than the reference model, as well as rgb 2.0 which will sync nicely with my whole rig. Newegg's "bundles" are at face value annoying, but i guess it helped me secure a card, as more people try to win just the card than try to win the card and whatever other junk they pair with it that you don't need. I just completed a build last month and the only thing missing was, guess what? Yep, a video card. I have been using my old rx 580 4gb as a placeholder in my new build. I am just ecstatic that I will finally get to complete my build with a new card, it will be quite the upgrade from what I have. Most reviews for this card are very ho hum, which is kind of disheartening, but these reviews are comparing graphics cards as if we can actually enjoy a choice in the matter, but this is far from the reality of things... Regardless, I have a feeling it's going to serve me very, very well until things cool down and I can buy a 3070. I hope everyone out there plugs away at the raffles and has alerts going and everyone has a chance to find a card that, while it may not be the "BEST CARD," it will be more than enough for you. Good luck everyone! Stay healthy!

  • Anthony is proof linux users can be cool Kinda

  • locally these are cheaper than a 3060ti last listed prices and actually in stock vs no ti's . seems to be modern crypto era bargain

  • 1.4k dislikes.. why tho ?

  • I got a 3060 ti and 6700xt inbound. Hope to run amd with ryzen 7 and nvidia with intel. Im excited to see how the both fair vs eachother!

  • Let's test Anthony.... build a pc out of only parts Linus has dropped. Should have a good choice of parts 😀

  • Anthony, you are awesome. 💪🏻

  • Umm…idk isn't it pretty obvious Radeon = sux for raytracing? idk sometimes people act like they didn't know that...

  • You are the best.

  • That turd is NOT a value in any market, on any test suite

  • A $30 water bottle with a screw on/off lid LMFAO!

  • * Can't get an actual GPU * Tries to print a GPU, Printer Doesn't work :I

  • Yes! I was super happy to get my 6700 XT at MSRP. It fixed my previous GPU crashing on me, can't say that I'm not satisfied with a fully stable rig finally.

  • You, you with a graphic card farming... SELL THIS SHIT you not gonna be rich anymore!

  • Anyone wonder when this graphics trend will stop? Are the legions of morons fueling it, far greater in numbers over players who would want good game play? Anthony: Make a solid story on this trend and you are THE guy to talk about this topic I am sure.

  • More Anthony videos please.

  • in europe, 6700xt "street prices" are below 3060ti it should cost 400, but it costs 800, which is unfortunately a competitive price in today's situation...

  • Such a beautiful voice.

  • I was just wondering if the AMD settings is already optimized, SAM, RDNA2 etc

  • nvidea all the way

  • Is it better to buy a 3060 Ti over a 6700 XT if the 3060 Ti costs me an extra 50 bucks ?

  • Enjoyed this video 👏

  • eeclone.info/glo/k5rVhIFpobOqtZg/video

  • The abnormal spaghetti promisingly waste because rowboat bacteriologically untidy throughout a fat faulty software. used, gaudy joseph

  • Is there 1 comment that's not about Anthony? I mean I don't blame you Anthony's voice is soothing af but still. Nothing to say about amd?

  • Only problem is its only in stock

  • Got to buy one from amd directly for MSRP, it's a nice upgrade over my 1660ti anyway and with the current market it surely made sense to switch and sell my old card right now.

  • Digital Foundry is saying something little different than you, whom should we believe in...

  • Can we use it for mining?

  • I so tired of hearing about raytracing. At the moment there are 0 games (imo) worth playing that actually support it. This is coming from someone who owns a 3090 (it was the only gpu in stock when I was looking for a new one and I'll also be selling it once I can get a 6800xt at msrp), I don't give a shit about raytracing. I don't see how it can even be considered as a selling point for any gpu right now.

    • hold on, nvidia is gonna cut off your review copies with that talk.

  • if im only using premiere which 6700xt worked better than the 3060 ti or 3070 and also for gaming does that mean I should get the 6700xt

  • I managed to get one of these on launch day and i'm happy i did. The only other alternatives were buying a tot tier gpu vor 1,500€+ or buying a complete prebuild pc by Alienen ware, Ohmen etc. So buying a card that is still good but maybe not aaaaas good as a different one for 80 theoretical dollars less is better then getting none at all

  • ANTHONY has got to be kidding - Radeon 6700 XT Review FLAWED: Misinformation Edition

    • 2:14 -- 2 x "Reference" cards compared against 3 x "Founders Edition" cards, .. claimed a "fair" [ 2:28 ] comparison..?!? D'oh! Different specs / BINned ICs much??

  • nah, ill stick to my rx5700xt!

  • Holy fuck can he please lose some weight. He won’t fit in the shot soon Jesus

  • Except for the fact that you can easily find this for 500$, while a RTX 3070 is sold for no less than 900$ everywhere...

  • Anthony just makes me feel so comfortable with his voice and his way of talking! 😊

  • It's a very good improvement over last gen, shame for prices and lack of cards.

  • Use me as an ‘Anthony Tech Tips’ button

  • The 6700xt is alot cheaper then the 3060ti and actually equal to the 3060 here in New Zealand

  • I love my 3070😍

  • Ya know what, I love you guys, but what's going to happen and I'm sure it's going to happen very soon as it always happens all generation, AMD will come up with that update to our cards that will rule them all again or at least catch up to Nvidia properly. And all these will be pointless... again. To slaughter videogame cards at the beginning of their generation is like shooting oneself in the foot if history is to be noticed of its illustrious patterns every once in a while. Every single generation. Towards about the half of each gen, the lesser performant team always ends up at least catching up to the other guy. I would prefer hearing something along the lines of... more about what the card can really do right now (more live testing), which is definitely more than enough already for what we can get during the pandemic, and talk about it's most likely bright future, refer to previous generations and let us know what you think is going to happen next. I like both companies but a lot of people will only buy the company they've always trusted a little more and will not move on to the others and still have an awesome experience. I find it stupid to still be comparing dick sizes with all the technology there is to talk about nowadays. Just my 2 cents..

  • We don't care we are just here to hear Anthony talk

  • I just bought a 6700xt a couple of days ago, seems to be a great card so far. I upgraded from a 5700xt

  • How much would a RTX 2080 cost if it wasn't for the price inflation? Love the videos btw you made me interested in pc's even tough I didn't knew ANYTHING about them

  • Hey Linus can we talk about the fact that there are no gpus available and the ones that are (even the 2060 super!!! is over 800 dollars american..) Why are we not talking about this!!?!?!?!?!

  • Is not a bad product, but price is

  • Anthony is so cool

  • Yeah,amd is kidding

  • Yes it's great Nvidia can leverage it's DLSS and ray tracing. Time will tell if AMD will rise to the level, if they do these cards will absolutely smoke what NVidia pushed out with Price factored in but AMD must deliver the other side. Games without the support for NVidia ray tracing tend to go to the RXs....

  • ... Is it better then my GTX 1080TI? Or should I keep the old girl running a few years more?

  • Anthony is a legend. Big ups.

  • I can't stand people who make jokes about fat people. It's spineless. Also chinless.

  • The card that nobody asks for?

  • call me a absolute noob but I just found out what f5 does lol

  • anyone know where i can buy a new gpu fan for a acer predator helios 300 G3-572, ive been searching for hours.. i need help, only actual gpu fan ive seen is from a acer-connected distributor company in germany that only has the whole cooling system for way over my budget price for this repair, just looking for a separate gpu fan

  • Bro I just want a graphics card that can run minecraft shaders smoothly that's around 300 bucks is that really too much to ask for

  • How much better is the 6700 xt Reference vs the AIBs?

  • n0ted 2.0 is in the thumbnail

  • Considering I'm stuck on a 260 for the foreseeable future, yeah, I'd love a 6700

  • To be fair, the 3060 driver has been unhackable so far hasn't it?, and I mean, sure that's irrelevant since Nvidia accidentally leaked drivers without the limiter, but the original "unhackable" drivers haven't actually been broken have they?

  • Are you close friends with sculptor Steve Badanes?

  • AMD GPU's are CRAP!! DO NOT BUT! Their drivers always suck which makes VR unplayable, and any new games unplayable...and if you into audio production forget about it! Your plugins GUI's won't even show up on your nice big 55" screen so that you can see them! They show up 10x smaller then their supposed to, and you cannot resize them even though they are supposed to be resizable! Pop in an old Nvidia 520 card that's 10+yr's old, and it's all find and dandy! You just can't play VR or any games besides Counter Strike! But you can work! So basically save your money!

  • What GPU do you recommend for a game like Skyrim LE on an older PC with graphics upgrades?

    • Current situation? Get a gt 1030 to tide you over. Once the mess clears up(hopefully soon), grab any gtx/rtx amd rx you like.

  • The video started buffering literally after he said "but would you be happy to have one?" I had a real moment to myself for the next 20 seconds...would I?

  • So nice to see another Anthony video!

  • Whoever had this idea of printed graphic card thing. Give him/her a raise lol

  • Casual LTT viewer here. Anthony needs to look into voice work if he hasn't already.

  • beats being stuck with a ROG Matrix HD 7970 platinum like me :/

  • Is it me or the "R" looks like the Raycon logo

    • I'm sure Anthony is just eating up all these praises. Just wish he could see them through those tiny slits.

  • I tried to get one on launch day. Sold out within 2 mins. The absolute state of buying gpus is disgusting.

  • Anthony is so epic lol.

  • 5 dollar per gb x so over prices... stupid ting... 15 dollar unlimited plans over here.. no Gb cap / no call cap / no sms cap..

    • A truly unlimited data plan doesn't exist in the United States, but we don't have restrictions on how many calls or how many SMS you use on our new plans, provided the usage isn't for spamming or grifting others.

  • Hahaha..that's a paper launch for ya.

  • Anthony is so nice

  • "older hardware" Like 3rd gen ryzen... that I'm upgrading to given that my current 'gaming' rig is a repurposed Xeon workstation from '09 with an upgrade to an X5690

  • I'm checking out ting thanks for sharing!

  • I am little concerned about the guy in the video. He seems to keep gaining weight and being that heavy is not good. Besides the weight, other problems can happen like diabetes, hypertension, plus his organs have to work harder due to the excessive weight. His BMI must be over 100 and that is not good. He should try to eat less, eating healthier foods, and getting some daily exercise. Being a computer geek tends to lots of sitting and not allot of physical activities. I thing he should consider getting weight loss surgery which may save his life. Obesity is a serous disease and makes getting some other illness prove fatal. For example getting Covid-19 while being obese may increase the chance of death compared to a healthy person. I am a big fan of your work but am worried for health of your staff. Stay safe!!.

  • Is it me or the "R" looks like the Raycon logo

  • Anthony should dump his bearded buffoon sidekick.
