Absolutely crazy times we live in when the 12GB version of the RTX 3080 goes for about twice the original MSRP of the 10GB version. I shake my head because I could of gotten a scalped RTX 3080 Strix for less than $1000 in 2019. I decided to wait because I did not want to feed the scalpers and figured I could find the card for slightly less than MSRP after about six months like most other previous GPU releases. Then, BOOM! Covid and crypto boom hit. The AMD 6500XT seems quite underwhelming with a 64-bit memory bus and less features than previous budget cards. I venture to guess that it does not perform as good as the 5500XT that it was meant to replace. I should had purchased a couple more 5700XT's when they were dirt-cheap.
