As part of an introductory livestream, Gigabyte has shown the first own models of Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800. The manufacturer named the manufacturer other than the competition also recommended for the custom designs that have it: the top model Radeon RX 6800 XT Aorus Master costs 900 US dollars, the Radeon RX 6800 XT Gaming OC with less complex cooler 850 US Dollar and the Radeon RX 6800 (Non-XT) Aorus Master 720 US Dollars.
Converted including 19 percent VAT (not included in US prices), the almost 885, 835 or 710 euros. The prices call Gigabyte in the imagination video from the minute 42:40. For comparison: AMD recommends for the reference model of the Radeon RX 6800 XT 650 Euro, for the Radeon RX 6800 about 580 euros.
So far, all graphics cards from the current generation are poorly available and therefore exempted. This concerns Auber AMDS Radeon series RX 6000 also Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3000.

The Kuhler can still be so good – for the first time, Gigabyte offers Aorus-Radeon with overlaughtering air, so far these GeForce graphics cards were reserved – no air cooler should be worth 200 euros surcharge. The GPU clock rates fall from Blob 30 to 60 MHz high.
This is obviously AMD also aware of: Manager Scott Herkelman Kundished in the current Twitter, that the reference models of the Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards are to be further produced until further notice. Actually, the AMD versions are only available for starting until the own creations of partner manufacturers are broadable.
