Two of the most powerful gaming graphics card, the AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT, have been sighted in the Philippines.
A couple of local computer stores have already put the AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT up for pre-order in the Philippines. The one that caught our eye was a post by CebuApplianceCenter.
The store offers the XFX RX 6800 for Php47,000, while the XFX RX 6800 XT is at Php57,000. However, both models actually have an official price of USD579 (~Php28,000) USD649 (~Php31,400), respectively, in the US. This means that the store’s pricing came from their own calculations and not AMD’s official SRP. We’d update this article if AMD’s local arm provided us with the actual retail price.
The posting said that the device will arrive in the third week of December and will require a payment for confirm the pre-order.
For a quick recap, the new AMD RX 6000 series features the new 7nm RDNA 2 architecture that boasts 2x performance improvements over the previous model. They also come with DirectX 12 Ultimate API support, AMD Infinity Cache, DirectX Raytracing, AMD FidelityFX, and Variable Rate Shading.
