AMD’s RX 6500 XT falls foul of its own anti-4GB GPU marketing

Today is the launch day of the Radeon RX 6500 XT, AMD’s latest budget graphics card. It’s currently in the PC Gamer test bench for testing and analysis ahead of our full review, though in the meantime it has been brought to my attention that this card’s 4GB of GDDR6 memory falls foul of AMD’s own blanket marketing statements.

In May 2020, AMD published a blog post titled ‘Game Beyond 4GB’, in which it laid out why 4GB of VRAM was “not enough for today’s games.” Now that was quite a statement at the time, considering AMD offered the RX 5500 XT in 4GB trim, though at least AMD offered an 8GB version of that graphics card should you see fit to heed its warning.
