If you want the best bang for your buck, you should take a closer look at the new AMD Radeon RX 6650 XT models. With a little more clock and a higher power limit, the RX 6650 XT should replace the previous RX 6600 XT. Certainly, one of the best choices for FullHD, but WQHD is also no problem for most games. Only in the highest settings and ray tracing can the 8 GB VRAM then perhaps become a bit tight.
There are currently more than 15 different models listed in our price comparison. They differ mainly from the cooling solution. Depending on the manufacturer, there are solutions with two or three fans, with or without RGB lighting, and also with OC ex works. As usual with AMD, the usual suspects are Sapphire, XFX, PowerColor, and many more.
In terms of performance, the AMD Radeon RX 6650 XT just overtakes the RX 6600 XT. It pays for this with a slightly higher power consumption, which is still relatively moderate compared to other graphics cards. Especially since a maximum of one 6- or 8-pin PCIe power connector is required for operation. A detailed performance ranking can be found in our graphics card ranking.
Officially the RRP of the cheapest Radeon RX 6650 XT at 449 euros. However, the various models are currently available for around 470 euros. The HardwareSchotte editorial team has listed the best models in direct comparison and also has the current best prices ready.
