AMD’s next-gen Radeon RX 6000 GPUs are on the way. Here’s where you can find them.
AMD recently announced some exciting new hardware, and you might be wondering where to buy the Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards (GPU) when they’re released. These cards are expected to compete with NVIDIA’s RTX 30-series GPUs, and should make a strong claim for the top spots of our best graphics card roundup. As we head into the expected November 18 release of the RX 6800 XT and RX 6800, let’s take a look at the best spots to shop for the new AMD GPUs.
Where to buy the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT
So far no retailers have concrete listings for RX 6800 XT cards, but we’ve seen some models from various manufacturers that should soon start showing up before the November 18 release date.
Gigabyte has a 6800 XT model, and it’s the same as the reference version that AMD first showed off during the Big Navi reveal. Think of it sort of as NVIDIA’s Founders Edition models. This design has three fans, aluminum backplate, and dual 8-pin connectors. Sapphire’s RX 6800 XT, also announced, follows the same reference design.
MSI has revealed a Gaming X Trio version of the RX 6800 XT, which resembles other cards from the same series. You get some RGB on the front around the middle fan (three total fans), RGB logo, and a strip along the edge of the backplate.
ASUS brings a couple of RX 6800 XT models to the table. One is a liquid-cooled ROG Strix LC version with paired radiator for those high-end custom builds, while the other is in TUF Gaming series with three fans and an aluminum backplate.
PowerColor has also teased an RX 6800 XT, but we don’t really know much about it other than it appears to have three fans. We will keep this information up-to-date as release dates and more model information becomes available, so be sure to check back often.
Where to buy the AMD Radeon RX 6800
Like the RX 6800 XT, the RX 6800 so far hasn’t shown up at any retailers. It’s expected to be released November 18, though, so we expect listings within the next couple of weeks. Some third-party manufacturers have shown off some version of the card.
Gigabyte and Sapphire have both revealed similar RX 6800 GPUs based on the AMD reference design. They use the three-fan design and aluminum backplate, just like the 6800 XT.
The ASUS ROG Strix RX 6800 has three fans with RGB lighting, extensive RGB on the side, and full backplate. There’s also a TUF Gaming version of the RX 6800 with the same black aluminum shroud and full-length aluminum backplate.
Where to buy the RX 6900 XT
There doesn’t appear to yet be any versions of the RX 6900 XT, but that makes sense due to the later December 8 release date AMD is expecting to hit. We will keep our eyes on any new RX 6900 XT models, no matter the manufacturer. And, of course, we will keep any retailers with 6900 XT listings in mind.
Which RX 6000 GPU should you buy?
We’re still a way off from the expected release dates of these GPUs, but you might already be wondering which card is right for you. As a bottom line, stick with the RX 6800 XT if you’d like to game at 4K or 1440p. Go with the RX 6800 if you prefer sticking with 1440p and dabbling in 4K. And go with the RX 6900 XT if you’re looking to go all-in with 4K gaming.
