AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT – the most important information
AMD has made many compromises in order to be able to push the price of the RX 6500 XT down as much as possible. Accordingly, we had to criticize the video memory of only 4 GB, the memory interface that was cut to 64-bit and the connection via only four PCIe 4.0 lanes in our test (read the article).
The RX 6500 XT is an entry-level graphics card and is aimed at Full HD gamers who want to play with medium to high settings. Due to the only 4 GB of VRAM, the GPU is rather unsuitable for mining cryptocurrencies, which is why more GPUs should get into the hands of gamers. However, the manageable amount of video memory in combination with the 64-bit memory interface and the connection via only four PCIe lanes can also lead to problems when gaming. The RX 6500 XT is therefore only suitable for the highest game details in very few games.

However, finding an alternative is not easy. The RX 5500 XT and the GTX 1650 Super from the previous generations are almost no longer available on the open market and when they are, the prices are upwards of 500 euros. Even on the used market, the two models cost 300 euros and more. Other alternatives would be a used RX 580 with 8 GB of video memory or a GTX 1060 with 6 GB of VRAM. The RX 6500 XT, on the other hand, officially costs 209 euros, but the online shops currently charge at least 329 euros. Another option is to wait for Nvidia’s RTX 3050 (read the article), which is scheduled to be launched on January 27th for officially 279 euros.
