Long before the premiere of the Radeon RX 6500 XT, we knew that something was definitely “off” for this card, and the ASRock Radeon RX 6500 XT Phantom Gaming D 4GB OC test only confirmed it. AMD could count on the fact that this model, which was never supposed to hit the desktop card market, would be sold out due to shortages, but these have just started to be leveled and so now in Germany the Radeon RX 6500 XT is cheap, like … a card, which should never really exist.
The Radeon RX 6500 XT in Germany is amazingly cheap to buy … and we’re not surprised at all
The Radeon RX 6500 XT has a lot of faults, so make sure you check it twice before buying it. However, if you want to buy any new card at the lowest possible price, the Mindfactory store in Germany has something for you. It sells the PowerColor version of the Radeon RX 6500 XT card for only 169 euro in the ITX format and 179 euro in the format with two fans, i.e. 800 and 840 PLN respectively.

This means that after deducting the German 19% VAT, these two models sell well below the MSRP level of $ 199, or PLN 850. If such prices were to be translated from the German field to the American one, the prices for these two models would be around $ 130. There is no need to say about a good comparison with the conversion to PLN, because we have both higher VAT and we cannot say much good about the state of the Polish zloty. AMD remains to hope that the Radeon RX 6500 XT at such a low price will find many customers who will forgive him a lot, but a lot of problems.
