Community Article AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT Build Guide — Micro Center Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker {$smarty.capture.menu} Activity Categories Discussions Computers Computer Parts Custom PC Builder DIY/ Maker Home › Reviews & Buying Guides AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT Build Guide SeanM admin August 10 edited August 18 in Reviews & Buying Guides The brand new AMD RX 6600 XT has been positioned by AMD to be the new king of 1080p gaming (and we've got the benchmarks to back that up!). So, with that in mind, we've picked out a tiny powerhouse that will get you the best 1080p gaming possible in a small top-of-desk-sized package. Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Vermeer 3.7GHz 6-Core AM4 Boxed Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler The new RX 6600 XT is designed with a budget in mind, so your processor should be too. The AMD Ryzen 5 5600 is going to be more than enough to get your new PC gaming at peak 1080p frames. Plus, it comes with a solid cooler as well, which will save you money down the road. Motherboard: ASUS B550M-PLUS (WiFi) TUF Gaming AMD AM4 microATX Motherboard If we're building a small computer, we need a small motherboard. The ASUS B550M has everything you need (including Wifi!) to get gaming as fast as possible without being the size of a large suitcase. It's even got m.2 NVMe slots which will become very important for both speed and size a bit later on. Graphics Card: PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT Hellhound Triple-Fan 8GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card AMD Radeon's new RX 6600 XT GPU is an absolute 1080p powerhouse, bringing RDNA 2 Architecture, AMD Infinity Cache, and DirectX 12 Ultimate Support to budget cards. We saw it running everything we threw at it at or above 60FPS at 1080p, even handling 1440p. The PowerColor model is a two-fan version as well (with some sleek blue lights) that'll fit perfectly in your new build, leaving enough room for good airflow and cooling. RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit F4-3200C16D-16GVKB - Black 16GB is the perfect amount of RAM for a bang-for-your-budget build. It's more than enough for almost anything you want to do with it, including gaming and video editing. But, if you do want more, you'll still have 2 available slots to cram in an additional 16GB of RAM. Hard Drives: Samsung 980 SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe (For OS) and Seagate BarraCuda 2TB 7200RPM SATA III 6Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (For everything else) We will not stop banging on this drum: put your OS on SSDs. M.2 NMVe SSDs if possible. They're so much faster than traditional hard drives, the slight extra cost is well worth the time you'll be saving not waiting for you PC to boot. Then, toss on a big traditional HDD for all your games and media, and you're golden! Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 650 GM 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold SFX Fully Modular Power Supply Since we're going to be working in a smaller case, we need our power supply to be two things: SFX and fully modular. SFX power supplies are a must for small form-factor builds and required by the case we'll be putting everything in. Being fully modular is less essential, but still important if you're hoping to put as much into a small space as possible without having a ton of extra wires hanging out. Case: Lian Li O11D Mini Tempered Glass ATX Mini Tower Computer Case - Black The Lian Li 011D Mini Tempered Glass ATX Mini Tower is the sleek new hotness for mini ATX cases, and for good reason. The 011D is a fantastic on-top-of-desk case, offering tempered glass wrapped around three sides, giving you a full view of your new, gorgeous machine whenever you want. Add some RGB to the mix, and you don't just have a computer, you have an art installation.

AMD engineered this new card specifically to deliver the “ultimate 1080p gaming experience.” A bold claim, and we’ll see if they can back it up with our benchmarks below! The RX 6600 XT has some very impressive specifications with a base frequency of 1968MHz, 32 Compute Units & Ray Accelerators, 32 MB Infinity Cache, and 8GB of GDDR6 Memory. Truly impressive hardware for such a small GPU. We used a PowerColor Hellhound AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT for our benchmarks with pre-release drivers, so your experience and results may differ slightly.  For our benchmark build, we used an AMD 5900X, 32GB of RAM at 3200Mhz, and a 1TB M.2 SSD. Of course, this was all paired with the aforementioned Hellhound 6600XT. All in-game benchmarks were run at the highest graphics settings, disabling motion blur when it was available. Based on these results, AMD backed up their claim of created a great GPU for 1080p gaming. As expected, it doesn’t have the power to offer a smooth gaming experience at 4k with max settings. However, it does surprisingly well running at 1440p in our test suite. AMD’s FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) technology was not available on the titles we tested, but more games are being added, and this will allow you to extract even more performance out of the 6600XT in the future. So, PowerColor us impressed! AMD delivers great performance with the 6600XT, and this should be a solid entry point for people looking for a remarkable 1080p or even 1440p card.

Don't believe us? Check out our benchmarks over here. In honor of this not-so-pricey powerhouse, we've put together a build guide designed to squeeze every last drop of power out of it while keeping some cash in your wallet. Processor: AMD Ryzen 5 5600X Vermeer 3.7GHz 6-Core AM4 Boxed Processor with Wraith Stealth Cooler The AMD Ryzen 5 5600 is a stellar budget processor, with enough power to keep you gaming for years to come, even if you upgrade everything around it, making it a perfect budget complement to the RX 6600. And, as an added bonus, it comes with a Wraith Stealth Cooler, a really solid pack-in CPU cooler so you won't need to buy an aftermarket cooler. Motherboard: ASRock B550 Phantom Gaming 4 AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard The ASRock B550 Phantom Gaming 4 is exactly what you look for in a budget gaming rig. It's certainly not going to break the bank, but it also hides a ton of powerful gaming tools that'll maximize your 6600. Plus, multiple M.2 slots for memory upgrades, a PCIe 4.0 port, and perfect compatibility with our Ryzen 5 5600X. Graphics Card: PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 6600 Hellhound Dual-Fan 8GB GDDR6 PCIe 4.0 Graphics Card The brand new AMD Radeon RX 6600 GPU is the perfect budget gaming card. It performs stellarly at 1080p and can handle 1440p esports without breaking a sweat. Even bringing with it RDNA 2 Architecture, AMD Infinity Cache, and DirectX 12 Ultimate Support. Check out our full report here! RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit F4-3200C16D-16GVKB - Black Nowadays, 16GB of RAM is the bare minimum to run everything. And G.Skill's Ripjaws V RAM is going to run everything with ease. At a clock speed of 3200, you'll be blazing along with anything you do and, if you do want more power, you'll still have two slots left over for even more RAM. Hard Drives: Samsung 870 EVO 500GB SSD (For OS) and Seagate BarraCuda 4TB 7200RPM SATA III 6Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (For everything else) Stop settling for slow boot speeds. Put your OS on an SSD, and marvel at how quickly your new budget build launches. Toss your favorite games on there as well, and you'll be in the Warzone faster than you can ask "where we dropping?" Add on an extra 4TB of HDD space to save some money, and you'll have more than enough room for everything you need and more. Power Supply: EVGA 750 BQ 750 Watt 80 Plus Bronze Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply I'm hard-pressed to recommend anything less than a fully-modular power supply, but since we're working on a budget: semi-modular. The EVGA 750 BQ is going to be more than enough to power your whole system with power left over for upgrades. Plus, being semi-modular, you'll have some choice in how many cables you put into your rig. Keep those loose cables out of there! Case: Lian Li Lancool II Tempered Glass eATX Full Tower Computer Case - Black You can't just build a new PC, you have to show it off (maybe even in our Build Showcase!)!The Lian Li II Tempered Glass eATX Full Tower is the perfect way to do so. With beautiful glass paneling, your fantastic new PC will be easy to flaunt to everyone. Plus, some nice RGB on the front is always a welcome addition!

The new RX 6700 XT has its sights set on delivering the best 1440p performance on the market and, with help from AMD’s game-boosting programs, it just might. Featuring 12GB of high-speed GDDR6 VRAM, AMD RDNA 2 Gaming Architecture for Ray Tracing, AMD Infinity Cache, and AMD Smart Access Memory, the RX 6700 XT is a mid-range powerhouse. And, of course, the RX 6700 XT has access to AMD’s suite of gaming enhancements, including AMD Radeon Anti-Lag, decreasing the amount of time between input and action, and AMD Radeon Boost, which delivers up to a 27% performance increase while gaming. What that all means: 1440p Gaming: 1440p gaming is, essentially, the mid-point between 1080p, the HD standard, and 4k. 1440p delivers high-quality visuals without breaking the bank. The RX 6700 XT offers top-of-the-line 1440p visuals for the mid-range price. 12GB High-Speed GDDR6 VRAM: VRAM, or video RAM, is memory dedicated to running computer graphics. 12GB of High-Speed GDDR6 VRAM means that there’s more than enough blazing-fast memory to render stunning 1440p graphics. AMD RDNA 2 Gaming Architecture: With the rise in Ray Tracing, a new graphic tool that adds realistic lighting, shadows, and reflections, AMD developed the RDNA 2 Gaming Architecture, designed to get the most out of Ray Tracing technology. AMD Smart Access Memory: When the RX 6700 XT is paired with a 5000 Series (and select 3000 Series AMD processors, the processors can make use of the RX 6700 XT’s 12GB GDDR6 RAM to boost performance up to 16%. AMD Infinity Cache: AMD added a 96MB last-level data cache to the RX 6700 XT’s GPU chip, allowing for up to 2.5x higher bandwidth. In other words: even more gaming performance.

This GPU has some cool features when paired with the Zen 3/5000 series Ryzen processors called Smart Access Memory (SAM) that offer increased performance. Those features lean the favor towards Zen 3 Ryzen as being the ideal recommendation. We will be using the same setup we used for the 3060 Ti Review and Benchmark.  We used an AMD Ryzen 5950X alongside 16GB of G.Skill RAM set to 3200Mhz.  The model of the RX 6900 XT we used was the PowerColor RX 6900.  All of our benchmarks were performed on an open-air test bench.  Here is the build we used, with a recommended case to complete the build. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin December 2020 edited December 2020 Benchmarks Benchmarks were done with the GPU right out of the box with no overclocking performed on the GPU.  We wanted to test the out-of-the-box experience with this GPU, using the launch day drivers as well.  All games tested were at the highest graphical settings (excluding motion blur), with some games tested both with SAM on and off.   Hitman 2 showed pretty expected results.  The consistent 1% Low at all resolutions shows up here again as with previous benchmarks of this game.  Looking at a CPU bottleneck, however, at the 1080p and 1440p resolution, and a nice 91 FPS average at 4K.  Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 7.26ms | 1440p; 7.38ms | 4k; 10.98ms  Next up is Grand Theft Auto V, and this game is always weird to bench at lower resolutions.  Although we got really high FPS, the number of stutters I saw at the 1080p resolution was worrying.  There are, however, a few known issues with this benchmark, and I didn’t see any issues at 1440p and 4K, the target audience for this GPU.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 6.12ms | 1440p; 8.31ms | 4k; 13.63ms  Horizon Zero Dawn showed more standard results for a benchmark.  With higher resolution, the lower your FPS is on both Average and 1% Low. We still see very high numbers at all resolution, especially since this is one of our most demanding games.  Due to seeing this game as a pretty standard benchmark, it was also tested with SAM on.  Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 6.06ms | 1440p; 7.47ms | 4k; 13.41ms  We saw no significant difference in performance gained with SAM turned on, but I've heard that you wouldn’t see results at higher resolutions. Still, at lower resolutions, I assumed maybe Horizon was taxing our RX 6900 even to have SAM active, which is why we tested SAM in Civilization VI, a game that isn’t nearly as taxing on the GPU.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 6.30ms | 1440p; 7.45ms | 4k; 13.31ms  The RX 6900 XT just performed like a monster in this game.  Seeing a CPU bottleneck at the 1080p and 1440p and getting great frame rates at both is good, but 108FPS at 4K is excellent.  Even an 83.7FPS 1% Low means the RX 6900 XT is a great pair with 4k60FPS gaming.  Now with a lower demanding game, let’s see how well SAM has improved this game!   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 8.11ms | 1440p; 8.16ms | 4k; 9.22ms  Strange again!  Not setting any performance gains here on a less demanding benchmark for the RX 6900 XT.  I am unsure why our benchmarks have not shown any performance increases when SAM is on. Our only answer is possible driver issues or the processor being too powerful as it is the Ryzen 5950X.   Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 8.23ms | 1440p; 8.25ms | 4k; 9.32ms  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSPhillipT admin December 2020 edited December 2020 Conclusion If you are looking for a GPU that will run games at 4K 60FPS with max settings and not have to worry about dropping frames, I highly recommend giving the Radeon RX 6900 XT a shot.  All games performed above 4K 60FPS at max settings and performed at higher frame rates at 1440p.  With this likely being the last GPU release of the year, AMD really set up a perfect GPU for higher-end gaming.  Especially with stock being low and with demand being high, this GPU is a solid replacement for those trying to secure an Nvidia RTX 3080 or 3090 or an AMD Radeon RX 6800.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook reyncoat ✭ December 2020 Thank you for the benchmarks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin December 2020 You're quite welcome! @TSPhillipT Did a great job with this one, didn't he? 😁 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Guthreee ✭ December 2020 Wow!

I'm considering the rx 6900 xt because of freesync (pairs with my monitor). On the other hand, the RTx has more gb and might perform better. What do you guys recommend?  Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TS_CalebS admin January 7 Hello @vforvonderful, What do you plan on using the GPU for? Just gaming or are you planning on doing more with it? Personally I would recommend the RTX 3090. Even though the 6900XT will pair with the freesync aspect, there are monitors on a list from Nvidia that Gsync will work with. I have included a link to that list for you. https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/ 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook VforVonderful ✭ January 7 Hi Caleb, I'm using the graphics card for gaming + content creation/3d rendering/video editing. Im thinking about pairing it with the amd 5950x. This is my current monitor: https://www.samsung.com/us/computing/monitors/gaming/49--chg90-qled-gaming-monitor-lc49hg90dmnxza/. I don't want to switch it! Thanks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin January 7 If it's a choice between these two, I'd probably go with the RTX 3090, since it offers more GPU Memory and speed. Both of these GPUs should well outperform your monitor refresh rate for gaming, so I would consider the content creation to be your deciding factor.

It has two 6+2 pins to power the GPU and a 6 pin to power the fans and lights (I think, not sure what the 6 pins are for but they seem to be the problem). When we power only the two 6+2 everything works great with the video output, but the fans and RGB on the GPU are off. When we power the extra 6 pins, the fans and RGB turn on, but the video card quits working (more specifically the HDMI and displayport on the mother board quit working). We have three VGAs on the EVGA 850 PSU powering the three cords individually. If we unplug the 6 pins, everything is fine again with the video outputs, but the lights and fan on the GPU are off. When I power up the 6 pin again the fans and lights on the GPU work, but the video outputs to the monitor all quit working.

We tried to remove the driver and reinstall. Started the computer in safemode and used the AMD clean up utility to remove the driver. Restarted then reinstalled the driver again and the same error keeps happening. We took a screen shot and included the error from Riot so you could see both.

We are looking at around 20ish frames dropped on games when switching to the non-XT version of the graphics card.  This performance puts the 6600 in an excellent position for 1080p 120Hz monitors and even 1080p 144Hz monitors for esports titles.  It even performed well at 1440p for esports titles, letting you go to 120Hz 1440p monitors for high clarity and still maintaining smoothness during gameplay.  Like the 6600XT, the RX 6600 isn't designed for 4k gaming. However, it can handle some less-intensive titles at 4k with gusto. Put it all together, and the RX 6600 is an excellent answer to those looking for an entry-level 1080p card or people wanting to play esports titles 1440p with a higher refresh rate. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Ian admin October 13 Interesting results, looks like a promising card that fits in well with the AMD lineup of video cards. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Here is my build Processor-  AMD Ryzen 5 3600 3.6 GHz 6-Core Processor Motherboard-MSI B450 TOMAHAWK MAX ATX AM4 Motherboard Ram- Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 CL16 Memory SSd- Western Digital Blue 1 TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive Gpu- Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB WINDFORCE OC 3X Video Card Case-Corsair iCUE 465X RGB ATX Mid Tower Case Power supply-EVGA BQ 600 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply Monitor- LG 27GL650F-B 27.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor I want to know if there is anything I can do to save money because I do not know if my cpu is as good as my gpu , because I will be running Call of duty and Fortnite mainly and I wanted to see if I can make anything better or do anything to save money. My budget is $1,250 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 Please some one respond 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 The Ryzen 5 3600 is a good CPU and it can pair well with a 2070 Super, so don't worry too much about that. In terms of saving money, the easiest area would be on the case. There are cases you can get for about half the cost that will still work well like the Cooler Master NR600, Lian Li 205 and NZXT H510.  I would also recommend a 24" instead of a 27" monitor if you're going with 1080p for your resolution. Monitors should cost a little less at a smaller size and personally, I think for a 27" monitor 1080p isn't quite enough and text/images can get a little pixellated and blurry because the pixel density isn't quite there.  Otherwise it's a solid build all around.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 Can it be any better for the budget anything you would change 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 I didn't notice it last night, but you chose DDR4-3200 for your RAM, I would recommend getting a kit of DDR4-3600 since that's the sweetspot for third generation Ryzen CPUs. Otherwise, the only other things I'd really change are what I already mentioned. The CPU, GPU, SSD, motherboard and power supply are all solid choices.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 MSI GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB VENTUS XS OC Video Card  is this a good graphics card because I went a lot over my budget by choosing that gpu and was wodering if this was a good gpu fort the price around $250 or is there a better gpu for that price. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 For $250 the 1660 Super is the card to choose. The only other one near that price i'd recommend would be the RX 5600XT, however the 5600XT is closet to $280 so it's a little more expensive.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 Is it the GIGABYTE Radeon RX 5600 XT Gaming OC 6G (Rev. 2.0) Graphics Card, PCIe 4.0, 6GB 192-Bit GDDR6, GV-R56XTGAMING OC-6GD REV2.0 Video Card 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 and will the ryzen 5 3600 be paired with that gpu well or it won't be used to its full potential  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 And also is there a better motherboard or is that a good motherboard. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 The Ryzen 5 3600 will pair well with any GPU. You won't be "using its full potential" but that's not a bad thing, it means you'll be able to pair it with future GPU upgrades without having to also upgrade your CPU.  The motherboard you chose is one of the best B450 motherboards as far as I'm aware and is a good choice along with the 3600.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 edited August 2020 in pcpartpicker it tells me that  The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports. When the M.2 slot is populated, two SATA 6.0 Gb/s ports are disabled. What does that mean and also if the mother board is a problem in that would other motherboard would you recommend to get rid of this problem the price around $150   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 I think it is because of the storage because when I put the storage it brings up the error and when I take the storage off it says no error sorry to bother but I want to know how to fix this problem. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 It means if you're using an M.2 SSD and install it into that M.2 slot, two of the standard SATA ports on the motherboard will automatically be disabled because they're sharing lanes. It's not a problem, just how they're designed. You'll find this on pretty much every motherboard.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 So there will be no problems I can still be going with my build and everything will still be working. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 Correct, no problems there.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 If I put another mother board with the same ssd it does not give that error  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 That's perfectly fine. Some motherboards may specifically differentiate between SATA M.2 and NVMe M.2 drives and not disable some of the ports if it's an NVMe drive, but either way I don't think you'll run into any problems.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 Thank you very much I do not know what I would do with out you is there any way or anything I can do to help you. and also the 1660 super graphics card is that good for call of duty or the rx 5600xt 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 I still have hard trouble finding a gpu that can run much more fps then a ps4 is and good ones you would recommend for $350 near  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin August 2020 At around $350, I'd be looking for a 2060 Super. They will be near that price.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 edited August 2020 What about near like $280 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 The regular The normal RTX 2060 and the RX 5600XT are going to be the GPUs to look at aroudn $280-300. All these GPUs should be able to run Call of Duty well at 1080p.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 Is the  Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER 6 GB GAMING OC Video Card or the MSI Radeon RX 5600 XT 6 GB GAMING X Video Card better 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 The 5600XT is more powerful than a 1660 Super 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 Thank you very much TSTonyV you helped me so much once I order this last part I will be all the done thanks to you if there is any way I can help let me know. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ August 2020 Is this better then the 5600 XFX RX 5600 XT THICC II PRO 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin August 2020 Any variant is of a certain GPU model is going to perform basically the same. One 5600XT isn't going to be that different from another, so if you're going with the 5600XT I'd just find the one that's the least expensive and check up on reviews to make sure it doesn't have some weird model-specific flaw that affects a lot of people.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tigran_62 ✭ September 2020 I made my pc it is working well still getting used to it but its good, so thanks for helping me. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin September 2020 Of course!

We’ve put together two builds, an AMD and an Intel build, to make the most of the RX 6700 XT. AMD-based AMD RX 6700 XT Build If you’re building with an AMD graphics card, pairing it with a recent AMD processor will give your rig an extra bit of power. With that in mind, we’ve put together a parts list for a mid-range powerhouse with just a bit of color to make it pop. Processor: Ryzen 5 5600X Vermeer The Ryzen 5600X is the perfect sweet spot of power and price. It offers enough oomph that gamers will rarely notice a slowdown but also doesn’t break the bank. Plus, it comes with an AMD Wraith Stealth Cooler, a pack-in so good, you probably won’t need an aftermarket cooler. Alternate: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X - More expensive, more powerful! Motherboard: MSI X570 MPG Gaming Plus AMD AM4 ATX Motherboard The MSI X570 offers a solid mid-range board, forgoing bells and whistles for a simple plug-and-play motherboard that will do exactly what you need it to do, making it a great compliment to the Ryzen 5 5600X in a budget build. Alternate: ASUS B550-f ROG Strix Gaming - A bit more expensive, but comes with on-board WiFi and some additional settings to make it uniquely yours. Graphics Card: Sapphire Technology AMD Radeon Ryzen RX 6700 XT Obviously, we'll be using the brand new Radeon Ryzen RX 6700 XT as the centerpiece of the build, and we've got a ton of reasons why - check out our RX 6700 XT discussion thread and breakdown post! RAM: G.Skill Trident Z RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 What’s a gaming build without some flash, though? The G.Skill Trident Z offers DDR4-3200 speeds and 16GB should be enough to handle anything you throw at it. Plus, you can make it glow red, and we all know that red lighting means it’s faster. Alternate: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 - Same brand, similar RAM, but no RGB and a bit cheaper. Hard Drives: WD Black SN 750 500GB M.2 (For OS) and WD Blue 1TB 7200RPM SATA III (For everything else) I can’t recommend putting your OS on an old-school HDD. They’re far too slow when compared to M.2 drives. But, M.2 drives are expensive. The compromise is to pick up a smaller M.2 like the WD Black SN 750 for your OS and a few other necessities and save some money with a cheaper HDD like the WD Blue 1TB for everything else. Alternative: Samsung 870 QVO 2TB SSD - The other middle ground is a big SSD. Still quick, but more expensive. Just not M.2 expensive.   Power Supply: EVGA 750 BQ 750 Watt 80 Plus Bronze Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply As my alternate non-modular choice would suggest, you can go a bit cheaper by forgoing any modular element to your power supply, but if you have the extra budge and want to keep your case looking as clean as possible, definitely spring for something like the EVGA 750 BQ that’s at least semi-modular. Alternate: Thermaltake Smart Series 750 Watt 80 Plus ATX Non-Modular Power Supply - All the power, none of the modularity. It’ll save you some money, but make cable management a bit harder. Case: Lian Li Lancool II Mesh RGB Full Tower When it comes to cases, it mostly comes down to style - as long as all your components will fit. The Lian Li Lancool II offers a sleek, fairly minimal style with RGB fans up front and tempered glass side panels. Alternate: Thermaltake H200 RGB Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower (Or any case that strikes your fancy and will fit your parts) - Again, a lot of case decisions come down to personal preference. Check out our case offerings and pick the one in your budget that speaks to you! The full parts list can be found on our Custom PC Builder: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=0ab38820-7c81-4411-9663-c9965c3c7253 Intel-Based RX 6700 XT Build  For our Intel build, we’re building a sleeper machine, designed to look unsuspecting but still have a ton of power and speed without breaking the bank. Processor: Intel Core i5-10400 Comet Lake The Intel i5-10400 offers the best bang for your buck. It’ll get you everything you need to game, but doesn’t overdo it in price or power. It does come with a pack-in cooler that'll do the job, but we have a suggestion for something that'll do it better in a bit. Alternative: Intel Core i7-10700K Comet Lake - Costs more, but gives some extra kick and overclocking capabilities Motherboard: ASUS Z490 Prime Intel LGA 1200 ATX Much like the MSI X570 in the AMD build, the Z490 Prime provides a solid compromise between price and power, a solid plug-and-play motherboard without much to fiddle with. Just good performance at a good price. Alternative: MSI Z490 MPG Gaming Plus Intel LGA 1200 ATX - Why not add a burst of RGB color to your motherboard? Graphics Card: Sapphire Technology AMD Radeon Ryzen RX 6700 XT Just like the AMD build, we'll be using the new AMD Radeon Ryzen RX 6700 XT. If you're looking for more information on the card, check out our RX 6700 XT discussion thread and breakdown post! RAM: Crucial Ballistix 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Keeping with the low-profile theme, we’ve got some simple black RAM that’ll blend in with the build but still deliver on speed and then some. It’s minimal, it's chic, it’ll look good in your case, and it’ll deliver the performance you want. What’s not to love? Alternative: Crucial Ballistix Gaming RGB 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 White - Don’t just add RGB, make a splash in your case with white RGB RAM and make sure it stands out. Hard Drives: Samsung 970 EVO SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe (For OS & Essentials) and Samsung 870 EVO 1TB SSD 2.5” (For everything else) If we’re building a subtle powerhouse, we’re keeping the memory small and fast. A 1TB M.2 NVMe from Samsung will give you more than enough room for your OS and a good chunk of your Steam library. Add on another 1TB SSD from Samsung for your Epic Game Store library, and you’re booting into Cyberpunk 2077 in record time. Alternative: WD Blue Mainstream 4TB 5400RPM SATA III - If you’re looking for a bit more room, stick with the M.2 as your main drive but supplement it with this hearty HDD with three more terabytes instead of a second SSD. Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 GT 750 Watt 80 Plus Gold ATX Fully Modular Power Supply If you want to immediately throw off the vibe of your new build, leave cables strewn about the case. If you want to keep it looking nice and clean, spring for the modular power supply and only use the cables you actually need. Keep the rest in the box, not your case. Alternative: Corsair CX650M 650 Watt 80 Plus Bronze ATX Semi-Modular Power Supply - save some money and spring for a semi-modular. Not as customizable, but it’ll still look clean. Case: Fractal Design Meshify C Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Case Let the build do the talking: no RGB, no flash. Just a sleek, tempered glass case showing off your internal components. Let the world know you mean business by not saying anything at all. Alternative: Thermaltake Versa J24 RGB Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Case - Say everything with RGB everywhere! Optional: CPU Cooler: Corsair iCUE H100i RGB Pro XT 240MM Water Cooling Kit Sure, the Intel i5-10400 comes with a stock cooler that’s fine, but if we’re going to really impress with this build and keep CPU temps down, it’s worth springing for an aftermarket cooler. And nothing cools better than a water cooler.

In case you missed it, you can watch AMD's keynote here: Here's what we know from today's keynote! It's all about Big Navi! While there was some discussion of the new Ryzen 5000 CPUs, the RDNA 2 architecture and it's improvements really took center stage here. RDNA 2 boasts 30% more energy-efficient and 30% frequency increase. This means that for the 6800 XT, an increase of 54% is achieved over the last generation RNDA and the 6900 XT achieves a 65% increase. Scott Herkelman announced several new features for the new Radeon series. One of the said features for the RX 6000 series is called Rage Mode. Rage Mode - Allows one-click overclocking for your 6000 series card. Smart Access Memory Allows you to pair CPU and GPU to gain additional performance. AMD claims that you can see up to a 13% performance increase when enabling this feature with your paired Ryzen 5000 series processors and the RX 6000 series graphics cards. Reduced latency reducing improvements Several improvements were listed in regards to latency. AMD announced up to 37% lower latency in Fortnite at 4K. He also mentioned that they are still working on a Super-resolution feature to give gamers an option for improved performance while using ray tracing.  I'm thoroughly impressed by the performance metrics that Lisa Su shared with us regarding the 6900 XT and I can't wait for the 3rd party benchmarks to be released regarding the upcoming release of the RX 6000 series!

So does the RTX 3000 series. At this point it's an availability game. I'm a spectator at a race where I don't care who wins... but the race is taking FOREVER. All this hype with no availability is soul-crushing. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin October 2020 edited October 2020 I think we're in a great place right now. From my perspective competition is always good for the customer. I'm hopeful at this point, and can't wait to see future benchmarks! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin October 2020 Hope AMD doesn't have early driver issues like they did with the 5700/XT. I was an early adopter on the 5700XT but the driver issues pushed me back to NVIDIA and I ended up with a 2080 Super. If AMD has the availability and driver stability we might finally be back in an age where there's real competition in the GPU market.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook DreadPirateRoberts ✭ October 2020 I've heard that AMD are making it a prime focus because of the feedback from the last generation. It seems like AMD heard the complaints. Hopefully, they'll do it right this time.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook AlexS admin October 2020 If AMD turns the game around with their driver support, it'll still be a vast improvement as a whole.  I'm excited to see how this turns out.   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Krogroth ✭ November 2020 Will Microcenter have the RX 6800 XT in store on November 18th? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 Yes, we're expecting to have the 6800 XT on the morning of release!  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Nick_C8 ✭ November 2020 Do you also intend to have the normal 6800 in stock in stores on the morning of Nov 18th? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CHRONOBODI ✭ November 2020 edited November 2020 i hail from Long Island.... im hoping the stock level of 6800XT will be decent on morning. then again, after the RTX 3000 series crapshow, i might have to consider camping the Westbury MC.    not in the mood to compete with lots of bots and spamming f5. Braving the cold in a nice warm jacket on a chair seems like a comfier idea. 6800XT still going to make my titan x pascal look like an old gtx 1070 by comparison. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 @Nick_C8 Yes, we expect to have them. However, the stock may be limited, so keep an eye out. I haven't heard anything about stock levels, personally but with recent launches for other products stock on release has been limited. So, again, I'd recommend keeping an eye out until we get closer to the date of release. Hopefully we'll know more then.

Some stores for the RTX 3000 series launch we saw people showing up the evening before and camping overnight. Some you may not see that happen. I don't know if people will do the same for the new AMD GPUs, but I wouldn't be surprised if they did.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook bbnn ✭ November 2020 @TSTonyV will we get updates from you guys on availability like you guys did for Ampere? really appreciated that 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Catboylilly ✭ November 2020 Is there a good chance you will be getting a shipment of Rtx 3000 cards aswell?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook CHRONOBODI ✭ November 2020 i mean, rtx 3000 stock is pretty bad if you still can't get one normally 2 months after the launch. which is why im hoping the "easier" manufacturing of RX 6000 on tsmc 7nm, (known to yield pretty good) as well as those cards being 256-bit bus as well, leads to lower memory modules per gpu needed. Also, gddr6 is plentiful to get vs gddr6x by comparison. u can tell by 3070 having somewhat more stock than 3080 or 3090 ever did, by 256-bit bus cards and gddr6 being more manufacturable, if that's a word. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Millix ✭ November 2020 edited November 2020 Will the cards be available to reserve online or will they have in-store exclusivity?  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 @bbnn We'll do our best to with what information we have. Hopefully, the community will keep us up to date with in-store visits and updates! @Millix They will be in-store only. If you're wanting one on release day, I'd guess that you'll have to arrive pretty early before launch. 😊 Hopefully, things are as @CHRONOBODI and we'll have quite a lot of inventory available. I havn't heard anything about stock levels yet though.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Goreopsy ✭ November 2020 edited November 2020 Hi! I don't know whether, even if the staff knows the answer to the following question, it is allowed to answer, but I'll try. Is there in any way that you guys would preemptively, before the launch day or on the day before opening hours, know if the stock that you'll receive will be in the quantity of several dozens, beyond a hundred, or even several hundreds? I'm asking because I think I'll be waiting before the store few hours before the opening hour and would like to ensure that, when I will count how many people are in the line before me, I'll know whether there's any point in me waiting in the line.

Can I get a little clarification on this? Is it 1 total or 1 per type. I am building 2 PCs, one for me and one for my son. I, being the more avid gamer(IMHO) of the two, intend to purchase the 6900XT, but I would like to put a 6800 in his machine. The issue is the fact that I am not keen on allowing my son to skip school to stand in line all night to get our hands on 2 separate cards. I understand the reasoning behind purchase limits, just wanting clarification so I know what I am walking into the night of. BTW, super stoked about this, as I am making the switch from Intel/NVidia(I have built every PC I have ever owned for 28 years, and this is my first all AMD rig). Thanks for taking time to answer all these questions! I am so lucky I didn't grow up near a Micro Center. I would have spent every dollar I ever earned in that place. My wife can't keep me away now that I found the Overland Park store is just 15 minutes away! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «1234567…14» Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

It's great to hear that AMD is making impressive improvements with RDNA 2, from power optimizations to the possible boosted performance when combining Ryzen 5000 with Radeon RX 6000. The rumored performance that Big Navi cards offer is likely to put some heated competition between AMD and NVIDIA, and competition is always a good thing for the customer. We've had the opportunity to test the Radeon RX 6800 and wanted to share these in-game benchmarks with you so you can see if the Big Navi rumors are true! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin November 2020 edited November 2020 The Radeon RX 6800 is in quite an interesting position. When AMD fans started talking about Big Navi and the performance that it would bring, this is what they were hoping to see. The 6800 gives a great experience at 4k and an exceptional at 1440p. While it's been a while since we've seen AMD compete on the high end of GPU performance, the performance we see from even the 6800 is beating the 2080 Ti in some games and matching it in others. RDNA 2 cards do support DirectX Ray tracing DXR), there does seem to be some difference in its capability compared to its RTX competitors. While we haven't had extensive time reviewing its capabilities in this regard, it does seem that the 6800 cannot match the ray-tracing performance of the RTX 3000 series cards. AMD's choice to include 16GB of GDDR6 video memory across their GPU lineup is an interesting choice. One that we're glad to see, as it gives great performance for games and other workloads. At 4k, titles are using quite a bit of VRAM, and the 16GB gives peace of mind for current and future titles. We'd recommend you pair it with a current-generation CPU, such as the AMD 5000 Series or Intel 10th Gen. While you won't see major bottlenecks with previous generation CPU (Intel 9th Gen | AMD 3000 Series), the most recent processors have made great strides in their performance that outpace previous generations greatly. We haven't done extensive testing into AMD's new feature called Smart-Access-Memory (SAM), which they say could offer up to an 11% performance increase in select titles. If you're upgrading or buying a new system, pairing a Ryzen 5000 CPU and Radeon 6000 series GPU is worth considering. Here are the specs for our test bench. Of course, our test bench also includes a reference model RX 6800. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 edited November 2020 Benchmarks We did not change any of the default settings for the GPU and left it completely stock. We wanted to give you the best example of what you could expect if you have no experience with overclocking or adjusting any GPU performance settings. All in-game graphics settings were set to the highest available. We chose several recent titles and some that were a bit older to show the performance across a variety of games that you may own or consider playing. If you think of a game with a built-in benchmark that we should add to our list, let us know what you’d like to see in future discussions! Borderlands 3 is a demanding title that AMD showed off in their announcement of the new Radeon GPUs. The was the first game that we benchmarked with the RX 6800. It was quite interesting to compare the results with our other recent benchmarks. Frametimes were 22.25ms at 4k, 12.40ms at 1440p, and 9.36ms at 1080p Hitman 2 was a bit of an anomaly here. We repeated the benchmark multiple times and had the same 1% Low in our testing. This could be attributed to drivers, perhaps a CPU bottleneck, or perhaps caused by IO's in-house game engine. We're not certain. However, it was consistent in our benchmark results. Since this has repeated itself on multiple test benches, we believe this is caused by the game's engine. Horizon Zero Dawn is the most recently released benchmark that we used. It's a graphically stunning game that is very playable, even at 4k. Frametimes 17.6ms at 4k, 9.8ms at 1440p, and 8.0ms at 1080p. Civilization VI is a game where frametime consistency is very important. Jitters here will be easily visible when scrolling around the map, looking for your next target. Frametimes were 6.62ms at 4k, 5.40ms at 1440p, and 5.22ms at 1080p. Rainbow Six Siege is an Esports title optimized for high framerates and low frametimes. While the game's optimization is noticeable, AMD's Anti-Lag shows some impressive timings that are very competitive. Frametimes 5.1ms at 4k, 2.8ms at 1440p, and 2.1ms at 1080p Grand Theft Auto has some interesting results. I think this can mostly be attributed to the variability in the benchmark itself. GTA V frametimes were 24.42ms at 4k, 12.27ms at 1440p, and 8.12ms at 1080p.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin November 2020 edited November 2020 Conclusion The RX 6800 reference GPU that we tested performed well in each of these benchmarks. It's $579 price point puts it in a very competitive position with other recently released GPUs and even previous generation top-end GPUs. In traditional rasterization/rendering situations, the RX 6800 boasts competitive performance. The RX 6800 does include ray tracing capabilities, but we could not test ray-tracing features in these benchmarks. Early reviews from other sources seem to indicate that the NVIDIA RTX cards have advantages in that category. However, if you're not concerned with ray tracing, the performance is great and extra benefits like 16GB of VRAM and SAM are also quite compelling. There's quite a lot happening right now in the gaming space with all of these recent product releases, and the RX 6800 firmly plants itself as a prominent contender for the top $500+ GPU in its category. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

Which RX 6000 graphics cards will be available? A. We will have RX 6000 series graphics cards from our top vendors: Asrock, Asus, Powercolor, Sapphire, and MSI, including gaming and overclocked models. These will vary from store to store. Available models will be listed in the graphics cards category at launch.   Q. How many will you have in stock? A. We're expecting limited quantities for the RX 6700XT launch on Thursday, March 18th. We are working hard to get more cards in as quickly as possible. We know you are all as excited as we are for this launch and ask that, as lines form outside of our stores, everyone shop safely and practice social distancing.   Q. When will you be receiving more stock after the launch day? A. We don't have an expected day to receive our next shipment. However, we do typically receive shipments throughout the week. Most often, we receive shipments in the morning before our stores open, and we make them available as soon as we have them.   Q. How much will the 6000 Series video cards cost? A. Up-to-date pricing for our cards will be posted on the website once they're available.   Q. Can I buy more than one?  A. We will be limiting purchases at this time to one per household. With limited availability, we want all of our customers to have a chance to be a part of this new product release.   Q. How do I get one of these products? A. These items are only available in-store and are only available on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to its high demand, this item typically sells out within minutes of hitting our shelves. A voucher will be required to purchase a limited availability item.   Q. Will you be issuing vouchers for this launch? A. On occasion, Micro Center will issue vouchers for items with limited availability, such as graphic cards, processors, game consoles, etc. Most recently, COVID-19 has caused issues with the production and distribution of these high-demand products for an unknown length of time. This demand and limited availability have created lines outside Micro Center stores most mornings before they open. We use vouchers to increase fairness and promote a safe, socially distanced shopping experience to our customers while shopping for products with limited product/availability. For more information about how vouchers are issued and what to expect at our store, please see our Limited Availability Product Launch FAQ. https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/7909/limited-availability-product-launch-faq If you have more questions, please don't hesitate to ask by leaving a comment below! 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «12» Comments jshield13 ✭ March 16 Has the storm affected Denver Micro center Stock? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTDavey admin March 16 Hey @jshield13 just chiming in. If you are wandering if the Denver store is open. yes the store is open. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 17 Hello @jshield13 I haven't heard anything about the storm impacting our Denver location at this time. As of yesterday afternoon when the article was posted, we are expecting to have stock in each of our stores! If that changes, I'm sure we'll update you here and on our website! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook PXHTX ✭ March 17 edited March 17 Why hasnt microcenter gone to a sign up email/sheet style first-come, first-serve basis for GPUs and other limited stock components? A simple sign-up sheet going down the list and gives everyone the same opportunity to sign up and be notified when an item that they have selected comes in stock. Give people like 24hours to pick up the item or it goes to the next person on the list. That way, people arent lining up outside of microcenters across the country, HOPING that one of their cards MIGHT be in stock that day. Sometimes for over 12-16hours. Thats crazy. Also could keep the scalpers at bay by only allowing one sign up per person per X number of days. Better than this vague might have cards that day stuff. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook i24 ✭ March 17 lets be honest, what time you guys showing up at the show? im skipping work but trying to catch up on sleep ;)😁 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSKyleH admin March 18 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/29652#Comment_29652 Hello @PXHTX I certainly understand your concerns, we do limit purchases to one per person using our voucher system. We require photo ID to verify names, and offer only one voucher in 30 day period. The question can be found on our limited availability FAQ Q. Can I get more than one voucher? A. Vouchers are only used for limited-quantity items, which are limited to 1 Per Household. You would only be able to receive one voucher per 30-day period with an accompanying driver’s license or state I.D. With limited availability, we want all of our customers to have a chance to be a part of this new product release. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Kaneki ✭ March 18 6 people in mayfield heights. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tomaselmas ✭ March 18 Hi any updates on stock for the Micro Center in Houston Texas? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook GuyWylie ✭ March 18 25-30 in line at the Cambridge MA store.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Juli ✭ March 18 40+ In line Columbus Ohio  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Azzyung ✭ March 18 40+ st davids 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Tomaselmas ✭ March 18 80+ Houston Texas 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook WatterHazard ✭ March 18 How many people outside Mayfield Heights? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 18 @WatterHazard I'd hope there a very few at this time, since the store has been open since 9am, I'd expect the majority of customers who may have been in line to have been assisted at this time! Since I'm not in the store, I'm only speculating. It would still be great to have someone from Mayfield check-in :) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Azzyung ✭ March 18 @LandShark Can people buy those cards if they are still in stock? like regular customers? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook prongles ✭ March 18 ok so im pissed off because people are literally putting tents and nobody even has a CHANCE to get the gpu 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 18 edited March 18 @Azzyung Yes, if there are still cards in stock, you would enter the line for GPUs and be given a voucher to be able to purchase a GPU. However, as I mentioned in my previous post, my current understanding is that many customers lined up early this morning and waited for the store to open and the vouchers to be handed out. I believe that we are currently sold out of all the stock that we had received. @prongles Sorry to hear that you feel that way, I'm told that we received around 75 cards at each of our stores, so many people were able to get a GPU this morning. I've heard from other news sites and reviewers that AMD is supposed to be getting frequent shipments of these new cards out over the coming weeks. With all recent GPU releases, the demand has been extremely high and the supply isn't yet able to keep up. We're continuing to do our best with getting more GPUs in stock and we appreciate your patience and understanding while we do so. 😊 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TimothyPE ✭ March 18 If you need an GPU to play games, wait until this bitcoin mining thing to stop, otherwise there is a better solution than camping online and offline everyday, which is Get a PS5 or Xbox X from Microcenter... 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook prongles ✭ March 18 some people didnt sleep and didnt get the gpu 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook steelaw ✭ March 18 You have a chance if you camp out overnight.i camped out 15 hrs to get a 3080 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook terryduryee ✭ March 18 I have been on the website refreshing my screen like every 10 seconds since 9 am est and did not see anything become available at all. I do not live near a store to go in person and also homeschool my 2 kids since covid started. Is there any information on what I'm doing wrong or what I should do if I'm trying to get a 6700xt. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 18 Hello @terryduryee Welcome to the community! The RX 6700 XT is a limited availability item and would only be available for purchase in-store. These items are not available for reservation. For more information about limited availability items, please see our recent Limited Availability Product Launch FAQ. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook terryduryee ✭ March 18 I apologize, I am new to a lot of this and just assumed that there would be cards on website as well. Any ideas on when that might happen or is it more in the hands of the manufacturer?? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook EddyJ ✭ March 18 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/29720#Comment_29720 Nope how would employee's fuel their buddies scalping then 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook EddyJ ✭ March 18 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook EddyJ ✭ March 18 See the same crap with 3080's etc. never on the site for stock yet they show up on marketplace every 2 days with the same day stamped on the receipt from Microcenter yet won't hold one for me while I make the 2 hour drive to the store. Anyone who actually want's a GPU for PC gaming is just hosed, 20+ years of PC gaming never seen such dumb BS in my life. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ozark81 ✭ March 18 Total Bust at the store in Overland Park, same story as everyone else. Campers and scalpers. They are already showing up in Facebook Market place at inflated prices. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 18 @terryduryee No apology necessary! Sorry if I came across as rude! Definitely wasn't my intention! We did list these cards on the website, however, since one of the major updates happens at 10am and today for this launch we opened at 9. because of this and the other reasons listed in our Limited Availability FAQ the cards were already sold out by that time. If you're interested in purchasing a new GPU, you'll have to head to the store as these are not available for purchase online through us. From what I've been told, we don't expect to offer reservations for limited availability items until they are more readily available. That time frame will vary from item to item but right now, I don't have a way to give you an ETA for that. Demand for these items is still incredibly higher than the production. We're working as hard as we can with our partners and continuing to do our best to get more GPUs in stock as quickly as we can. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin March 18 @EddyJ We are continuing to limit the purchase of these limited items. Q. Can I get more than one voucher? A. Vouchers are only used for limited-quantity items, which are limited to 1 Per Household. You would only be able to receive one voucher per 30-day period with an accompanying driver’s license or state I.D. With limited availability, we want all of our customers to have a chance to be a part of this new product release. Also, I can verify that as an employee, we aren't able to purchase these cards. Q. Are associates able to make purchases of high demand products? A. As with many high-demand products at launch, employees are restricted from making purchases so we can get new products into the hands of our loyal customers. Once the restricted period is over, any associates wishing to purchase a high demand product will have to follow the same procedures that our customers follow. We do not allow the sale of these products outside of store hours, nor do we allow any holds for these items.  @Ozark81 It's impressive to see and hear about people camping out. It makes me miss the times when friends and I used to pull all-nighters waiting outside the store for the latest game release, just to get an extra poster or some in-game items. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook EddyJ ✭ March 18 @LandShark No worries you guys already pissed me off 2 months ago when the Desktop i purchased online upon driving 2 hours to the store was then mysteriously no where to be found but they sure as hell didn't hesitate to push another one on me. Already wasted 12 hours drive time looking for a card to go in these desktop i bought as it's 4 hours round trip not doing it anymore. I'll just try to become a distributer partner so i can get a single damn GPU since no retailer has any clue how resolve the scalping, and backdoor side deal issues. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook «12» Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.

AMD is positioning the 6700 XT as the cutting edge GPU for 1440p gaming, stating that it delivers “ultra-high frame rates and maximum 1440p gaming.” In this overview, we’ll take a look to see how the 6700 XT performs in some in-game benchmarks. If you’re curious to see how your system stacks up against the 6700 XT, you can run these benchmarks at home. Specifications The 6700 XT lists some very impressive specifications that set the stage for it to shine brightly, especially over the previous generation’s specs.  AMD's RDNA 2 architecture continues to deliver significant improvements in performance over the previous generation, and we’re glad to see it across the entire 6000 series lineup. Specifically for the 6700 XT, the higher clock speeds and four additional gigs of VRAM, for a total of 12GB of GDDR6 VRAM, are the standout improvements. While the additional VRAM may not be required, it’s great to have. This allows for some future-proofing with games and other software that may require additional resources. At this time, all the games that we tested did not need this much memory, and at 1440p, this matches our expectations, but it’s still good to have the headroom.  Benchmarks The AMD RX 6700 XT benchmarks are promising, and AMD came through and achieved their goal of 1440p gaming at maximum settings. In the games that we tested, we saw a very playable experience at 1440p, and the 6700 XT even offers a playable 4K gaming experience in some titles. In our benchmarking, we set every possible setting to the maximum to thoroughly test this card's capabilities.  Our test bench was a base Maingear Vybe 2, which includes a Ryzen 9 3900X, 32GB of 3200Mhz RAM, 1TB NVMe SSD, and we swapped out the GPU with an RX 6700 XT. Our tests specifically use a PowerColor RX 6700 XT Red Devil.  We are using a pre-release driver for this GPU; because of this, some results may vary over time, but you'll typically see better results as the drivers continue to mature. It should also be mentioned that we are using DirectX 11 for these benchmarks as that is the API that the majority of players will use when playing these games. Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 10.9ms | 1440p; 14.9ms | 4K; 27.9ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 6.97ms | 1440p; 7.67ms | 4K; 11.15ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 11.4ms | 1440p; 14.2ms | 4K; 19.7ms Note: The consistent 1% low FPS across resolutions is likely caused by an engine bottleneck or caused in the scene transitions during the benchmark.  Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 11.2ms | 1440p; 14.3ms | 4K; 25.1ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 3.1ms | 1440p; 4.7ms | 4K; 10.2ms Frametimes are as follow, 1080p; 12.0ms | 1440p; 18.6ms | 4K; 38.6ms Overview All in all, the RX 6700 XT offers a great experience at 1440p, as AMD has promised, and in some titles even provides a very playable experience at 4K. However, you may have to reduce some settings to stay consistently above 60 FPS. We were thoroughly impressed with the way that this card handled the games that we benchmarked here. If you’re looking to play games at 1440p, the RX 6700 XT might be your answer.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor.
