Radeon RX 6750 XT, RX 6650 XT listed at sky-high prices in Europe


A French computer, component and electronics retail chain has listed two new AMD RDNA2 refresh GPUs as “in stock”. PC21.fr has specifically listed the Asus-branded Radeon RX 6650 XT and RX 6750 XT graphics cards that will compete for a spot on the list of best graphics cards. These unreleased Radeon graphics cards are expected to launch shortly, alongside a new Radeon RX 6950 XT, part of the long-rumored RDNA2 refresh – expected to be AMD’s last graphics card launch before moving into the era. RDNA3. hardware detective momomo_us Point the product codes that gave rise to these announcements.

French retail listings are somewhat worn and they don’t feature product photography, for example. However, anyone in the market for a graphics card in 2022 will be very familiar with the no-frills design of the Asus Dual cooler, which these two features present.

Another significant omission from the listings concerns the technical specs – we don’t even have a few bullet points in the listing to “confirm” the leaks and rumors that have been making the rounds in hardware circles.

Probably the most exciting thing about the listings is that they seem to suggest you can buy these graphics cards today, with 24/48 delivery, and they share the price. Since we started writing about these listings, inventory hasn’t run out due to purchases (which isn’t surprising given the prices).

We tried adding both graphics cards to a shopping cart, and the process worked fine. However, as announced, the price of these products is not attractive as we approach May 2022, and the GPU market seems to be returning to normal in many respects.

PC21 is offering the Asus Dual Radeon RX 6650 XT for sale at €559 including tax ($600). In the meantime, the Asus Dual Radeon RX 6750 XT is available for €864 including tax ($930). You must add 9€ ($9.66) to these prices for delivery in a metropolitan area of ​​metropolitan France.

We thought it worth looking at the current prices of the Radeon RX 6600 XT and RX 6700 XT products available from the same retailer. MSI’s entry-level Radeon RX 6600 XT MECH 2X 8G OC was available, with plenty of stock, for €468 including VAT ($500), and MSI’s Radeon RX 6700 XT MECH 2X 12G OC was also plentiful and at the price of €824 including tax ($885). Remember that France has a 20% VAT rate – so subtract a fifth of the prices shown above to get pre-VAT prices in your preferred currency.

Considering the prices of the previous generation Radeon RX 6000 GPUs at this French retailer, the launch prices for the new Asus Dual cards might not be so shocking.

Of course, there are other graphics card sockets available for EU residents. Earlier today, we reported purchasing AMD hardware directly from the AMD Online Store at MSRP. As for France availability specifically, the exact headliner deals apply, with the Radeon RX 6900 XT and Ryzen 7 5800X3D available at MSRP ($999 and $449, respectively). Unfortunately, no lower-tier GPUs are in stock directly from AMD.

We’ve reported on EEC listings detailing ASRock and Gigabyte RDNA2 refresh queues over the past few days and weeks. Perhaps more interesting were the two leaks suggesting that these refresh cards are only modest upgrades over their predecessors. If the market is rational, performance-based price premiums should be minor, certainly not as large as we saw at PC21 today.
