MSI is Selling the AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT for as much as Rs. 46K, Pretty Much Making it Obsolete

- Advertisement -

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 ol‘ reference part MSI packaging, and labels. So why is it even more expensive than the GeForce RTX 2070 Super, despite the fact that it is actually supposed to be $50 cheaper? Well, ask MSI. I checked the price of the same product over at some other retailers and got mixed results.

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!

I love computer hardware and RPGs, and those two things are what drove me to start TechQuila. Other than that most of my time goes into reading psychology, writing (and reading) dark poetry and playing games.


  1. This is utter b.s.! My friend got it at around 36,500. But, this (any) blower style card is pretty much worthless in India. It reaches 90 deg pretty quickly and starts throttling and you do get FPS drops. My friend is now regretting it. I am going to wait for 2 fan or 3 fan version before I get the RX 5700 xt

      As of today, the 31,880 is for RX 5700 not the RX 5700 XT.
      RX 5700 => RTX 2060 Super
      RX 5700 XT => RTX 2070 Super.
