Sapphire’s well-performing variant of the popular AMD Radeon RX 6700 desktop GPU has reached prices of more than US$1,000 at the height of the cryptomining boom, but patient gamers can now order this mid-range graphics card for under US$300 thanks to an intriguing deal at Newegg.
Although GPU market leader Nvidia desperately tries to keep its retail prices at an unsustainably high level with the recent release of the GeForce RTX 4000 series of graphics cards, most gamers probably wish for the time of insanely expensive video cards to finally come to an end. Fortunately, patient AMD fans and mid-range gamers can now snag the well-performing Radeon RX 6700 for one of its lowest sale prices in recent memory.
More specifically, the Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 6700 GPU with 10GB of GDDR6 VRAM, a maximum boost clock of 2,495 MHz and a 160-bit memory interface can now be ordered for US$299 from the reputable hardware retailer Newegg. To get this enticing deal price, please apply the US$30 coupon code “VGAEXCAA338” after adding the desktop graphics card to the shopping card. Most gamers are probably well aware that this desktop graphics card has a TDP of 220 watts, which means that prospective buyers are recommended to have a 650-watt PSU and a spare 8-pin connector in order to upgrade to the Radeon RX 6700.
In addition to aforementioned technical specifications of the Radeon RX 6700, this GPU comes with a single HDMI 2.1 port and three DisplayPorts 1.4 that together support a total of four external monitors. As always, this card is based on AMD’s well-established RDNA 2 architecture, which is manufactured on a 7nm process. All in all, the AMD Radeon RX 6700 is a decent GPU for 1080 and 1440p gaming, and thanks to its relatively affordable sale price of just under US$300 at Newegg, it arguably provides a lot more bang for the buck than the latest offerings from AMD and certainly Nvidia.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
