The Radeon RX 6700 has been on sale in China for about a month now, and now this 3D card by Sapphire is on sale in Europe. At the same time, the price is very impressive: retailers in France and Spain offer to buy a novelty for 570-580 euros (including VAT). It is very expensive, as if in times of scarcity of video cards. For comparison, in Germany, the Radeon RX 6700 XT retailer MediaMarkt sells for 590 euros without a discount (550 with a discount), and the Radeon RX 6800 is not much more expensive – 680 euros.
True, there is a retailer in Spain that offers the Radeon RX 6700 at a 35% discount – for $ 380. And this price is already more in line with the pricing on the video card market now.
Recall, the Radeon RX 6700 is built on a Navi 22 GPU with 2304 stream processors (out of 2560 in full configuration) and has 10 GB of GDDR6 memory connected to the GPU using a 160-bit bus. The RX 6700 is not much faster than the RX 6650XT in 3DMark Time Spy, around 10%.
