AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT Announced With U.S. Pricing, Availability Details

Advanced Micro Devices, or just AMD in short, today announced the official arrival of its newest series of high-end computer graphics cards in the form of the RXadeon RX 6800 XT. The said GPU will be joining the ranks of the standard RX 6800 and the RX 6900 XT, with all three now being confirmed for a nationwide release in the coming days.

More specifcially, the Radeon RX 6800 and its XT counterpart will both be hitting brick-and-mortar stores and e-commerce platforms alike on November 18th, with that release date being confirmed for the entire United States market. The Radeon RX 6900 XT, meanwhile, will be out a bit later, on the 8th of December, AMD said in a prepared statement from earlier today.

All three are meant to rival NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series announced in early September, with the $999 RX 6900 XT being the flagship model of this generation. Yet it is the $649 Radeon RX 6800 XT that is expected to make the most waves across the consumer electronics market as the ostensible best-buy option for most PC gaming rigs in the foreseeable future.

Granted, that title may also be scooped up by the RX 6800, an even more affordable solution set to retail at $579.
