What you need to know
- The MSI Radeon RX 6900 XT is currently in stock through Newegg for $20 above MSRP.
- Many GPUs are difficult to find in stock and often sell for hundreds of dollars above their suggested price.
- The RX 6900 XT is the most powerful graphics card from AMD and should deliver solid performance for games running at 4K.
It's been difficult to find the best graphics cards for quite some time. The global chip shortage has left a scarcity for a wide range of PC parts. While stock is still limited for many graphics cards, there are some signs that things are improving. Right now, you can purchase an MSI RX 6900 XT through Newegg for $20 above MSRP (after the $50 rebate is factored in).
High-end GPUs often sell out instantly if they appear in stock at all on retailers' websites. The fact that an RX 6900 XT is available to purchase for any measurable amount of time is a change of pace. Additionally, its price being close to MSRP is different than what's often seen in the industry. Many outlets sell powerful GPUs for hundreds of dollars more than their recommended price.
While $1,020 is not cheap, it is in line with the best AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics cards, such as those from XFX and ASUS.
The RX 6900 XT is a powerful GPU that should be able to play the best PC games at 4K. Our piece comparing the RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT can give you a more granular look at how AMD's high-end graphics cards compare to each other.

Nope, you didn't miss a rebate... just missed your window of opportunity to grab it for $1,020. :/ Edit: JUST as I posted this comment, the price dipped back down to $1,020 (post-rebate).
