To me, AMD pricing is set high so later they can lower as needed. Their cards look economical to produce, with great yields at TSMC on 7nm, so AMD appears to have a lot of leeway. Frankly, take AMD's whole lineup and deduct $50 from it and that to me would be the right price. Since Nvidia has higher prices there was no need for AMD to constrain the AIB partners profits which help support AMD in the end anyways. It is not just AMD but partners as well that are looking for a profit. As for the 5600XT, that would be a very hard sell to me, I would get the 5700 on sell, 8gb ram, 256bit bus, OC's very good while the 5600XT looks like it does not have much left after the bios update.

I keep seeing posts like this and I don't get it.

AMD's 5**** series has been a much better price/performance than Nvidia, since launch day last summer. 5600XT is a little closer in price. But, it is still priced better.

Of course, we all want GPUs to be even cheaper. But, AMD is definitely driving prices downward.

Just that you can get right now on Newegg different 5700's for $329, put a 5700XT bios on it and OC it to much higher levels then any 5600. It also has 2gb more memory, more memory bandwidth which for NAVI is needed. All for $30 - $40 more and cheaper than some of the 5600 ASUS ones. I don't see the price of the 5600 as good, $249 starting price would have made much more sense with special AIB cards being less than $300. Also 5700 have gone below $300 at times on sell. I don't see why you don't get it.

Driving lower-mid range down maybe. High end prices are being driven up.

5500/5600 not so much.

You would be surprised how little movement in price will keep someone from buying a item. I also think the 5700 is a better deal but that couple extra bucks will stop many from getting it.

Of course you can buy a better card for $50 more. And for $60 more than a 5700-----you can get a 5700XT.

5700 beats a 2060 super, for $70 less

5700XT beats a 2070 for $10 - $20 less and matches 2070 super in newest games, for $100 less.

And Nvidia has a problem right now where the 2060 super and 2070 are the same price, but the 2070 is strictly better.

I don't consider xx60 or xx70 as high end.

I think they should of lunched at RX 5500 4 Gb / RX 5550 XT 8Gb > RX 5600 6 Gb / 5650 6Gb > RX 5700 8 Gb / RX 5750 8Gb > RX 5800 {current RX 5700 XT }

The RX 5650 and RX 5750 would be bios changed (flashed) cards and the way it would cover the scale better in pricing .

what about the 9700pro?
xx60 and xx70 are just names.
Performance is what determines if a card is "high end"
Not saying that the 5600xt is high end, but literally the 5700xt is the "highest end" AMD has at the moment. But if you compare that with the 2080Ti then you would say the 5700xt isn't as high end.
Also, I consider anything above $300 as "high end".
There are some people who would consider the 2080Ti as not "high end" as there are better and faster products such as Quadro and Titan

Seems like AMD did a "nice one" on their partners:

As a comsumer I would love to take some "free" performance in a BIOS update and still be in warranty.
Now if I was a business partner I probably would be mad at AMD for not "letting us know". Could be way worse...
Good thing i'm not a business partner ;)
