AMD releases the Radeon RX 6950 XT, RX 6750 XT and RX 6650 XT

AMD has today announced the expansion of the Radeon RX 6000 Series, which includes the AMD Radeon RX 6950 XT, their most powerful card in the family. All while Intel can't even give proper dates for Intel Arc…

No benchmarking or testing from me, as AMD don't provide any samples and they've repeatedly not added me to their press list which I've chased up yet again today.

From the press release:

"There are three billion gamers worldwide and counting, and about half play on PCs," said Scott Herkelman, senior vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit at AMD. "As gamers grow in numbers, these new Radeon graphics cards will provide next-level gaming experiences and performance. And the incredible efficiencies of AMD RDNA 2 architecture deliver substantially better performance-per-dollar with the new Radeon graphics cards compared to the competition."

Global availability is expected today, May 10th 2022.

Mohandevir 11 May
Quoting: Breizh
Quoting: MohandevirI can definetly tell you that my main PC will become a backup plan for what's not playable on the Steam Deck (Steam streaming).

I never bought a gaming laptop because it's not that portable; I'v got an MSI workstation and I must bring the charger everywhere or the battery lasts for 45mins and I usually end up leaving it on the same table for this reason, thus defeating the purpose of portability. This and the fact that gaming laptops are on the heavy side... Nope the Steam Deck is a much better fit, imo. But that's just my personnal experience.

That’s going to be the other way around for me: the Deck will be a backup plan for when I can’t bring my main PC. The PC is way more practical (screen size, performance, posture, peripherals…) and comfortable for long gaming session. But the Deck is very portable, and have sufficient performances.

I bought it mainly for performance (at that price on top of that! Even the most expensive is a good deal compared to a laptop at the same price), because my current laptop have a big lack of performance.

A gaming laptop would be perfect for my main use case, but three times more expensive, and I wouldn't use it often enough to make it worthwhile.

The battery is a bonus, maybe I’ll start to play in new situations because of that. So it will probably be even more profitable.

In my case, if I ever upgrade my PC, it's going to be with low end gaming GPUs. Streaming in 800p to my Steam Deck doesn't require a 1k$ GPU. In fact, any 250$ latest gen GPU will be overkill for the task and I don't plan on buying a 4k monitor. 1080p 75hz, maybe, eventually. I rarely sit in front of my PC, nowadays. I work all day thus (CAD designer), my couch is much more attractive, in the evening, but I want my PC games (mainly Steam) to follow me. For the moment, I'll wait for an entry level gaming GPU that's better than my GTX 1660 Super, in a gen or two.

Quoting: LoftyAlso looks like you can buy THREE steams decks for the exact same price of a single GPU excluding the rest of the entire PC and sit and play couch co-cop with your other half or your friends and family.
My first car was cheaper than a 6950xt

Well, I’m currently in 1080p 60-120Hz (FreeSync) and I want to go 1440p 60-120 Hz (and probably with better graphics too), that’s why I want to replace my RX 590 by a 67--XT.

I work all day on PC (sysadmin) too, I don’t have a couch :D The 800p screen is a bit too little for a main gaming device (since even 1080p is not sufficient for me… ^^’ it depends on people and games (I need more space on screen for management games, so I can display more information at the same time. And in other games I want more readability, like the dashboard in Euro Truck Simulator 2)). And I’m a bit more demanding on the visual quality than before (when I was a student, 30 fps in low quality 1080 or even scaled 720p was ok, now 60 fps is a minimum, and I want the major part of my games to be in high quality). But I don’t need more neither (4K gaming is really expansive, and you have to upgrade your computer more often to keep it up with new games).

In short, it's always a matter of personal preferences, needs, desires and/or resources.
