The release of new graphics cards understandably no longer attracts many players from behind the monitor. However, if you are still thinking of buying the new RX 6700 XT from AMD, we will collect all the important informati on about today’s launch here. Statements from AMD partners also give hope for the future in terms of availability.
All important information about the performance of the new RX 6700 XT and how it compares with the competition from Nvidia can be found in our test of the custom design PowerColor Red Devil RX 6700 XT:

When exactly will sales of the RX 6700 XT start?
According to AMD Europey, we start selling today, on March 18, at 2 p.m.. This applies both to the AMD shop itself and to online retailers such as Alternate, Caseking or Mindfactory.
AMD will only sell its own reference design; the other shops will start selling custom designs at the same time, such as the PowerColor Red Devil, which we used for our test linked above.
Where can I get the RX 6700 XT as cheaply as possible?
The best place to go for a purchase at an MSRP of 479 dollars is likely AMD’s own shop be. AMD has confirmed to us that there will be stocks at this retail price when it is released.
However, it is no longer a secret that the AMD shop has one of the best prices to offer. Coupled with the low inventory, this realistically lowers your chances of buying a release to a minimum.
Tips from the community:
The only difference is the four-digit number before the “&” character at the end (“4000”, “4100” or “4200”). It would therefore be obvious that the link for the RX 6700 XT contains either the digits “3900” (as the slowest model) or the digits “4300” (as the newest model):
It may also be worth checking the AMD shop for new inventory between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. over the next few days and weeks. According to user reports, new goods should often have arrived there at this time. However, when we asked, AMD has not officially confirmed this information.

How expensive will the RX 6700 XT usually be?
We anticipate that the prices at many retailers and also on platforms such as Ebay will quickly level off around twice the RRP. In many cases, the RX 6700 XT should only be available from around 1,000 dollars.
What about the availability of the RX 6700 XT?
AMD partners have told us that the card should be sold out as quickly as all other new graphics cards at the time of release. However, compared to the faster models RX 6800 (XT) and RX 6900 XT, stocks should be significantly higher.
We tend not to believe that this is enough to make the surcharge on the RRP a little lower than we feared, but hope dies last, as we know.
