I scored one of these about two weeks ago on the 19th from another slickdeal thread but the deal went MIA pretty quickly and stayed that way. By scored, I mean I was able to process one from cart before it disappeared and it remained OSS, not that I have actually received it... yet. That projected ship date was way out there, around dec 10th!

However, it looks like stock is finally back but for $10 more but at least you won't have to wait as long, presumably - you'll probably get it around the same time I'll finally see mine, heh.


-Comes with the free game promotion, Dead Island 2 or Callisto Protocol - see added screenshot [ibb.co] on how to redeem the offer.

The Dead Island 2 trailer [youtube.com] is a bit, meh...
Though, this [youtube.com] redeems it slightly.

However, Callisto [youtube.com] looks pretty awesome, ngl!:


Actual product link [amazon.com].

-Ship and sold by Amazon.
-Return policy: No restocking fee malarkey and free shipping return label - Returnable until Jan 31, 2023. How can you go wrong?



Other notes:
When I was researching this at the time of purchase, there doesn't seem to be as many user reviews on this Asus model versus say, the other popular 6700 XT deals that have been popping up SD, but they are generally favorable across Amazon and Newegg... with the negative reviews mainly just complaining of scalper prices, not being able to change the RGB lighting on the card and a couple getting unlucky with coil whine (which seems to be a cross-manufacture issue if you just get unlucky no matter who you choose).

It's also thicc and apparently not a two-slot card, more like three. So beware of that. It uses an 8+6 12volt GPU wiring configuration where the XFX uses 8+8 pin instead for example.

There's also an "OC" version [amazon.com] of this Asus card for $30 more ($390) but from the reviews I've seen & read (such as Hardware Unboxing), the "OC versions" of this generation are never worth the price increase. Basically they're just a tiny, dismal manufacture-made overclock, that you could easily do with AMD's own Adrenaline Software.

Speedwise, it compares to a GTX 3060ti or 3070 depending on the game though only for rasterization (where most of the heavy lifting is anyway). Enabling RTX is an entirely different story and the Nvidia counterparts spank it. Though many people don't consider RTX as a viable option even with the nvidia cards at this level anyway (still too expensive of a framerate hit unless you're in 3080ti/4090 territory but of course, that's super subjective - what framerate you consider acceptable).

Also, Nvidia's DLSS still outperforms AMD's FSR though not as harshly with the progression of FSR 2.0/2.1. And one last note, just from my experience, AMD's Adrenaline display control panel, while pretty cool as I love the in-game overlay, doesn't allow as much color adjustment as Nvidia's control panel does (it does the basics, just not as granular and i like to tweak colors down to the tee).

Though one perhaps not-so-known benefit of AMD over Nvidia, if your CPU is lacking, AMD graphics cards drivers have less overhead and perform better when there's a CPU bottleneck versus Nvidia cards: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLEIJhunaW8

According to Slickdeals this meets the criteria for an "nvidia gtx" deal alert.

This seems like the going 'deal' rate for the 6700 xt if you don't want to deal with rebates or weird payment options.

I've passed up on this price point several times the past month waiting for it to drop more. Not passing on it this time. Thanks for posting op.

I already have the Power Color Red Devil 6700 XT (3 fan). Is this really worth returning the Red Devil to get the Asus? Forget the $20 difference. I'm just wondering if this is that much better. The Red Devil is an Amazon Purchase also.

I've read lots of positive reviews on the Red Devil models. If it fits in your case and runs well, I'd just keep it.

How's this vs the xfx model? I haven't picked it up from best buy and might be getting my first credit card with 5% cash back on Amazon.

How does this stack up vs a 3070 in real world tests for 1080p gaming?

Careful, with that attitude you might invoke the wrath of the GPU min/maxers like I did for saying a Red Devil deal was good.

It's on par with a 3070 and and even beats it by a decent margin on certain games with a strong exception of all games based on unreal engine where it falls to 3060 TI levels. Which is still good in my opinion considering the price and availability, but some of the most popular games use the unreal engine like call of duty so that's a consideration if that's all the games you mostly focus on.

Appreciate it. I know Power Color, ASUS, and Sapphire are considered top tier. My last three have been Sapphire and they've been great.

Call of Duty uses IW engine and performs better on AMD hardware

Oh well then I must be getting mixed up. I know there was a video I watched that compared 50 games with the most popular cards including the 6800 XT and 6700 XT and there was one particular engine that Nvidia has a clear advantage on, I think it was the unreal engine.

Honesty it's been like information overload I've read and watched so many reviews to make sure this purchase would go well so i'm probably miss-remembering. I'll leave these deeper comparison questions to the experts. 😁

Thanks for that. 👍

Only thing that keeps me from switching to AMD GPUs is lack of Nvidia gamestream. Is there something similar for AMD cards?
