AMD’s $199 RX 6500 XT doesn’t look all that attractive at these inflated prices

Shortly after AMD’s CES 2022 product premiere, where the company announced the budget RX 6500 XT with an MSRP of $199, Asus announced two RX 6500 XT models of its own: the Dual Radeon RX 6500 XT OC Edition and the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 6500 XT OC version. These two cards offer Asus’ cheapest AMD RX 6000-series graphics cards, but as we later found out, they’re not cheap at all.

According to a press release, by hardware lxx-de, ASUS TUF Gaming Radeon RX 6500 XT OC Edition is priced at 334 euros. The cheaper of the two is the Dual Radeon RX 6500 XT OC Edition, priced at €299.
