AMD launched the Navi 10 flagship, the Radeon RX 5700 XT a few months back in India with a price tag of around Rs. 36,500. Although some of the company’s partners like Sapphire are selling the card for slightly less, there are some others that are looking to earn some extra bucks off this budget-oriented 1440p card. And by others I mean MSI. Micro-Star International is selling the reference model of the Radeon RX 5700 XT for as much as Rs. 46,000.
And to make matters worse, it’s not a custom model, just the plain
At MDComputers, the RX 5700 XT (MSI variant) is quite a bit expensive compared to the other board partner models, while at the ITDepot and Vedant Computers, the prices are within acceptable limits. So, who’s to blame for this? MSI? The retailers? AMD? My guess is MSI, but we’ll let you know once we get a confirmation. Cheers!
