Snag almost any AMD graphics card plus The Last of Us for hella cheap

RX 6700 XT is effectively yours for $290 with the game bundle.

If you’re in the market for a new graphics card and also planning on playing The Last of US Part I when it finally hits the PC on March 28th, then we have one heck of a deal for you.

AMD is bundling the game with all of its Radeon RX 6000 and 7000 series graphics cards. The Last of US Part I is currently available to pre-order on Steam for $60 in the US and £50 in the UK, so that’s the effective savings on offer.

What it means, specifically, is that you can have an RX 6700 XT 12GB for $290 from Newegg, assuming you were going to buy The Last of US, anyway. That GPU is currently available for $350 on Newegg, which is one of the retailers participating in the promotion.

If that’s a little rich, how about an RX 6600 XT 8GB for an effective $215? These are the kinds of GPU prices we’ve been waiting years for. You can, of course, go higher up the AMD stack. An RX 6800 XT clocks in at an effective $505, for instance.

Inevitably, 60 bucks off is less meaningful as you scale the heights of the graphics hierarchy. That said, if you’re willing to go with a card on back order, an RX 7900 XT weighs in at $740 with the bundle, a solid $160 lower than its original MSRP just a few months ago.

Back in the UK, there’s been a bit of a run on 6700 XTs at one of the participating outlets, Overclockers, with the boards selling out, perhaps because of this bundle. There’s only one option available for pre-order at an effective £310. For a 6650 XT you’d be looking at £240, while at the other end of the scale, a 6800 XT is £540 and a 7900 XT works out at £750.

So, not quite as good as the US offerings, but still the best pricing we’ve seen for years in the UK. The deal is worldwide and you can find a full rundown of participating retailers on AMD’s website, listed by region and then nation.

Anyway, the value proposition here hinges on whether you were planning on picking up The Last of Us Part I at launch for full price. If you were, these “effective” prices very much are what you’ll be paying for the GPU. For cards at the lower end of the stack, we’d say jump on this one. It’s the best graphics deal we’ve seen for an awfully, awfully long time.
