AMD challenges NVIDIA on the value for money of video cards

We know that most users aim for products that offer the best quality / price ratio on the market and this also involves graphics cards, so much so that, usually, the mid-range remains the reference point in terms of sales.

Frank Azor, Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions and Marketing at AMD, has published a slide on his Twitter profile in which he compares the articles belonging to the Radeon RX 6000 range with those of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30. Obviously, since it is a direct challenge between rivals, it is clear that the information contained is only indicative, but it remains equally interesting to see that, presumably, the AMD cards are able to offer up to 89% more performance. in reference to the price, compared to the NVIDIA ones.

As a longtime gamer I'm grateful for the renewed competition in high-end graphics, we all win from it. As an @AMD employee I'm super proud of what our @Radeon team has accomplished. #gamingpc

Looking at the data provided in more detail, we can see that AMD's flagship model, the Radeon RX 6950XT, has an 80% better price / performance ratio than the GeForce RTX 3090, with a 22% frame-per-watt increase. The biggest increase is in the low end with the RX 6400 which offers an 89% better price / performance ratio than the GTX 1050 Ti, but which is now an obsolete model.| ); }
This marketing move by AMD may have been dictated by the continuing decrease in the price of graphics cards on the market, now close to reaching the recommended one, as highlighted in our previous article. In this way, those who are willing to buy a new video card soon could be interested in the product with the best quality / price ratio, probably leaning towards the proposals of AMD. However, it must be considered that the prices reported by AMD refer to the Newegg price list updated on May 10th; therefore, it is not representative of all markets and retailers.
