Amazon is offering the GIGABYTE Radeon RX 6500 XT Gaming OC 4GB Graphics Card for $239.99 shipped. Down from $300, this $60 discount comes within pennies of its all-time low and marks a rare discount for a graphics card these days. While the 6500 XT isn’t a show-stopper in terms of performance, if you’re still using an older graphics card, or maybe none at all, it’ll still offer a solid upgrade overall. It features 4GB of GDDR6 memory and a triple fan cooling system that offers alternate spinning fans. On top of that, the GPU features RDNA 2 technology and will fully support AMD’s FSR 2.0 technology for frame rate boosts. Learn more about the RX 6500 XT in our announcement coverage.
