    But ideally with cloud gaming you can service 3 to 4 players with one GPU by using day/night cycle over the world and having it utilized 24/7. But than everyone needs a good internet connection and even in germany there is a massive lack in certain areas.
    Also im not a friend of staying online for singleplayer games. I mostly buy drm free stuff at gog to get those whenever, wherever benefits.

    Edit:

    Yeah true, lets see what happens if Russia and other countrys ban crypto currency and mining. Not that I support it, but gamers may benefit.

      Moving information is somewhat different than moving a person's body in space.

      There were big markets: cassette tapes, CDs, DVDs, game cartridges, VHS tapes, Walkmans - which are just small markets now. Many albums and movies are nowadays being streamed on-demand (irrespective of whether it is a rental or a full purchase), and it is very likely that streaming of games is the next thing on this list.

      Obviously: In order to service N gamers, cloud gaming services need to purchase a much lower number of GPUs than what the N individual gamers combined would need to purchase.

        What a pooch! When a RX590 beats it that is like being knocked out by Glass Joe.

          In EU the cheapest 6500 XT seems to be selling for about 280 EUR. While that's a little less than what I got my RX570 for some 4 years ago, it's also not a step forward in terms of performance or useful features.

          Okay, that would make the purchase more reasonable. On the other hand, if the market recovers next year and you decide to get a "real" GPU, you'll have wasted good money on a card that will have almost zero second-hand value.

          6500 XT may be appealing only to people who desperately need a GPU and can't buy a CPU with integrated graphics.

            I bought a RX 580 for 169€, then my computer died. I sold my RX 580 a year ago for 200€. Now, I was finally able to buy my new computer and I'm rocking my Ryzen 7 5700G iGPU proudly until I can get a decent midrange card for under 300€. Sure, I can easily pay 700€ for a 6600, but I'm not going to pay these absurd prices out of principle.

              I don't see the shortage reasonably ending next year, the year after maybe. and while the performance is pretty terrible for the cost, it is still better than an Igpu, I don't think it's a good deal preformance is somewhere between an rx570 and an rx 580, I think that if it's available, it's better than nothing. of course it isn't available anyways so who really cares LOL

                At 4GB of RAM, wouldn't it be better to stick at 900P. I would also love to see how well 900P upscales to 1440P on this card (using Radeon Supe Resolution built straight into the Windows driver*).

                *Apparently, Glorious Eggroll's Proton builds also have AMD's upscaling built in but I haven't tried that yet.

                  This is not a dGPU, this is a joke.
                  I am on a rx 480 8GB (nitro+) since 2016 (paid GPB 230), moved to r9 5900x last year (from i5 6500k), planning to get a good dGPU... NOT with this prices and offerings.
                  rx480 8GB is better than this c**p and it looks it will stay for the next few years if manufacturers do not cop on

                    The card is not flawed in design, it is flawed in naming. They should have called it RX 6400 XT then there couldn't be complaint of "oh it's worse than RX 5500 XT"

                      There are bunches of these available at my local store at $260, while most other GPUs are sold out or in limited numbers.

                      In comparison to other cards:
                      GT 1030 2GB $115
                      RX 560 4GB for $200
                      RX 550 4GB for $230
                      RX 6500XT 4GB for $260
                      GTX 1650 4GB for $290
                      GTX 1660 Super 6GB for $330
                      GTX 2060 6GB for $440
                      RX 6600 8GB for $470

                      Given those options, I'd say the 6600 or 1660 Super are clearly the best options, if you can spend that much money.

                      If you're limited to only looking at the 4GB cards, the 6500XT isn't bad at $70 cheaper than the 1660 Super.
