The Disastrous Launch of AMD's RX 5600 XT
Hello Folks,

So AMD has been slowly unveiling new graphics cards in the RX 5000 series starting with the 5700 XT. AMD recently launched the 5600 XT, the specs and performance were mainly known already thanks to CES, and It was priced competitively against Nvidia's 1660 Ti/1060/2060 however AMD failed to anticipate one of the oldest tricks in the books of marketing. Just a few days before the official launch, Nvidia introduced price cuts in their own lineup deducting 50$! from RTX 2060 bringing it on par(on price) with the 5700 XT. This created massive panic at AMD and they had to introduce a vBIOS update just before launch however some cards had already shipped with the older bios which meant the board distributors couldn't update all the cards on time. This resulted in a bad image for the consumer side, updating the vBios isn't something too hard but It does add extra steps to the consumer which should've been done from the very start.

There are rumors going on that the next members of the lineup, mainly the RX 5800 and 5900 (or even 5950) would be able to surpass the current high-end tier of Nvidia however It is also being widely speculated that Nvidia's new RTX 3000 series is coming up in June/July meaning AMD will once again be far behind its competitors (like always), which is just not just bad for AMD but for the consumers as well because monopoly means Nvidia can price their cards whatever they want and get away with it.
Thanks to HostLease and Post4VPS for my VPS 16!
