[US] $360 RX 6800 and $410 RX 6800 XT - XFX Speedster SWFT - on Amazon

YoungBlade

XFX is apparently trying to clear out old stock. They're selling, through the XFX store on Amazon, RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT cards at the lowest prices I've seen for them. These are easily the best value 16GB cards you can get right now in terms of raw performance.

The RX 6800 has performance around the level of an RX 7700 XT or RTX 3070 Ti.

At these prices, it's really hard to justify getting anything else around the $400 mark - compared to current AMD offerings, you're only losing out on AV1 encoding support while also getting more VRAM than the 7700 XT. The RTX 4060 Ti 8GB at $380 is a joke in comparison and the 16GB model at $440 is still a fair bit slower. I don't think that the DLSS capabilities make up for the price increase, and they won't always win in RT either - especially the 8GB model.
