AMD unveiled the $479 Radeon RX 6700 XT just minutes before we recorded this episode, so we break down what you’ll find inside the graphics card, from its ample memory and sky-high clock speeds to its reduced Infinity Cache size. At $479, it’s priced between Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3060 Ti and RTX 3070, hinting at what to expect from performance. But will you be able to actually buy it? That’s the question on everyone’s lips. We analyze the current incredibly bleak state of the graphics card market.
After that, we dig into interesting side details from AMD’s event, like Smart Access Memory coming to Ryzen 3000 chips. Yesssssss. Finally, we end things—as usual—by answering a whole lot of your questions live.
You can witness it all in the video embedded above.
