AMD is having a rough go of it lately, with several of its products receiving major price cuts on various online retailers. The AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT is no exception, as the new video card has now been spotted with a $1,100 price tag that is 1,000 USD higher than on Newegg. Now, this is not the first time that AMD has had a product hit this particular price point, but it is still a major blow to the company, which recently announced a voluntary recall of Radeon RX Vega 64, 68 graphics cards, and the more affordable AMD Radeon RX Vega 56.

The MSI AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT GAMING X is a powerful graphics card that can outperform many cards that cost twice as much.  Due to a leaked product page that lists the price as “Street Date Approved”, this card on Newegg has been temporarily out of stock. You can still use the link on the same product page to check its availability.

AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT, the third-gen Polaris graphics card, is on its way and it’s a good one. The card packs the new Radeon RX 6600 XT graphics chip, which is based on the same Polaris 10 silicon as the RX 580 (but features an enhanced factory-overclocked clock speed that boosts the graphics core to 1,280MHz). The card features 4,096 stream processors, a 128-bit memory interface, and 24 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 12 GHz effective speed. The card features a TDP of 150W and is cooled by a single-slot blower design.

Last week, AMD unveiled the Radeon RX 6600 XT, a lower-end RDNA 2 graphics card with 2,048 Cores, 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, and a boost frequency of 2,589 MHz geared at delivering a high-frame-rate, high-fidelity 1080p gaming experience.

Despite its stated release date of August 11, 2021, a third-party vendor in China named AIO has already listed the Radeon RX 6600 XT on Newegg for $1,099.99, a considerable premium above AMD’s recommended retail price of $379.

The clock specs for MSI’s Radeon RX 6600 XT GAMING X have yet to be revealed, but the graphics card does contain some of the company’s standard features, such as the TWIN FROZR 8 cooling system with twin fans.

When the Radeon RX 6600 XT goes on sale this Wednesday, MSI will offer a total of four Radeon RX 6600 XT variants.
