The new generation of graphics cards is here, and slowly the different ranges of cards are trickling out. The problem though is that the new generation is pretty expensive and it's a hard pill to swallow for a lot of gamers and PC builders, so some are looking back at the last generation to see if any bargains can be had on GPUs with competing performance. 

This is where we land on the ASRock OC Formula Radeon RX 6950 XT at $699 (opens in new tab). The price has finally dropped below $700 and if you look at our GPU hierarchy (opens in new tab) list, you can see it's still very competitive against the latest GPU lineup.

If you do manage to snag a top-tier GPU then you might want to pair it with a high-resolution 4K Samsung Odyssey G70B Gaming Monitor for $799 (opens in new tab). This 32-inch beast has an IPS panel HDR400 and a fast refresh rate of 144Hz. UHD monitors are still not the most popular type of gaming monitor at the moment due to their higher prices and the need for a very powerful graphics card to make the most out of them.

This is a fantastic deal on one of our favorite SSDs - the SK hynix Platinum P41 2TB PCIe 4.0 SSD for $181 (opens in new tab) from Amazon. See our review of the S K hynix Platinum P41 (opens in new tab) to see why it earned an Editor's Choice award. There is a caveat to this deal though, and that is it's only available to Amazon Prime members.

    If I was more irresponsible I would definitely pick up a 6950XT even though I have a 3080 12GB. It also comes with two free games, doesn't get any better than that.

    Eh, the recession hasn't even started yet. TSMC just cut prices on their wafers for top customers. The downturn is still working its way through supply chains, there are more price drops to come.

    I would bet the 6950XT will be below $600 in a few weeks and closer to $500 in a few months.

    Not in order:

    Working from home
    Free money
    Windows 11 scaring people into upgrading
    Laptop Discrete GPUs being more then good enough (compared to the last time most people bought laptops for Windows 10, mobile GPUs were a lot less potent)
    Crypto mining creating a buying panic, and now offering enough used GPUs for everyone that wants one
    Consoles are relatively new and the PC doesn't have a price/performance advantage over them for several years more (and the upgrade cycle on consoles is going to shorten)
    Basically 2020 and 2021 everyone that could upgraded. They are going to be good for a few years which will create a huge slump in sales. I bought a few things, and don't plan on anything major until 2024 at the earliest.

    Hopefully all the extra fab space being built now will cause price competition to drive production costs lower. As long as there is still performance competition between AMD, Intel, and Nvidia we should see a drop in prices.
