Trunks0 you're missing the point entirely. Frank Azore made a very public bet laughing at Nvidia's paper launch saying AMD would never do that and they would have more stock at launch of their reference cards. They didn't. He then said don't worry we've supplied 7x as many cards to the AIB's for launch on 25th. Don't forget AMD have spent a lot of marketing $ promoting not just the launch but also their own self declared declaration of being a major gaming brand in the PC market. "Power your gaming dreams with a 6800 RDNA2 graphics card from AMD"

And today there was even less stock and lots of retailers worldwide saying they aren't even bothering listing the cards as they don't have any confirmed shipping dates. If it looks like a turd, smells like a turd then it is a turd. You can polish it however you like but AMD's 6800 launch is a turd. Two months from now their market share will be <20%.

*shrug* and? That's marketing. Is this a good launch? Nope. Should anyone be surprised? Nope. Is this the worst ever? Nope. We will see where things are couple months from now.

That's just factually incorrect. Stock was low, they where available and they sold out. You can see people on other forums who got them, retail. It happened.

Maybe it's just I remember the larger context here over time. Probably further re-enforced by this being normal in Canada. Common for us to not get stuff at the same time as the US launches. Even before AMD bought ATi, a Canadian company don't forget, we didn't get stuff at the same time.

If M$ are saying they won't have supply meeting demand for xbox's until their April to June quarter it won't probably look much different. Same goes for Sony. They'll both want to sell another 4 to 6 million before then so where does that leave AMD Zen 3 and 6800? M$ and Sony is solid money in the bank. AMD is a public limited company run for the benefit of it's shareholders and it's sole aim is to maximise profit. Same for every PLC. M$ and Sony will also have hefty penalty clauses in their contracts if AMD don't hit the numbers so AMD feel it financially. Miss their console targets and pay a penalty or produce more Zen 3 and 6800. Not a tough choice really. If you sell your soul to the devil there is a price to pay eventually either in the short, medium or long term or worst still all three

Yeah but it's not like nVidia has had a decent launch either. Where at what? Almost 3 months now for the 3000 series, and availability still sucks. It's the same set of problems. Not enough manufacturing space and getting stuff around right now is a nightmare.

you do understand that consoles started full ramp production in July/August and were stockpiling fully built units the entire time.

I'm talking UK that's where I live. Top five retailers have NO stock. Amazon UK NO stock. I'd love to know where people in the UK bought stock from.

To try and give some more context Scan UK received 14% of their PS5 pre orders on launch day. That means 86% of people who pre-ordered and paid up front for a PS5 in September did not receive their console. Scan currently has no shipping dates for those consoles and estimates it may be early 2021. OK in the global market Scan are miniscule but just imagine those numbers worldwide. Sony will be kicking down Lisa Su's doors demanding more consoles as per their contract so what do you think she'll do? Sorry Jim can't do that I need to sell some Radeon 6800's One of my favourite AC/DC songs is money talks google it it's a great track.

TBH only decent things I've been able to buy lately are AC/DC's new Power Up album and Iron Maiden's new live album Night's of the Dead Superb albums actually. Highly recommended if you're a metal fan.

I might have had too many Stellas tonight or your intellect is way above mine but I can't grasp your argument here. So you're saying AMD were providing SOC's to both M$ and Sony from July and they both offered pre-orders in September and two months later neither could fulfill their pre-orders and it's nothing do with AMD without whose SOC's the boxes are just..boxes. Am I missing something maybe a shortage of SSD's or cooling fans or boxes even. AMD didn't prioritise their own products so what's your point please.

You just described Canada as well. Overpriced 3090s are all you can find.

I ordered 11PM Tuesday night CST and it got at my doorstep Thursday 4PM via DHL Express from Slovenia. They do ship mass freight. Its just expensive and looking like it may be the only option if the sea freight **** doesn't clear up.

TSMC's top priorities were

#1 = iPhone 12

# 2 = the new game consoles

AMD's stuff was last on their list most likely Sony & M$ demanded it

There must be a lot of docks where these millions of cards are stuck And obviously only those ships with AMD cards onboard have been affected is that right? The sites are also saying they have no shipping DATES not delivery dates ergo they've not even put them on a ship yet.

Look why can't people just accept this is the most botched launch ever and stop trying to defend the indefensible. AMD need to come out and admit they botched it badly and apologise and try to rectify the situation as fast as they can. Sorted but if they keep on lying well that's their problem. At the end of the day the truth is they didn't have the capacity to supply all the consoles and also their own Zen 3 and 6800 GPU within the launch window they gave themselves. That's inexcusable incompetence for a major company IMHO.
3 million consoles made it into customers hands because they started production of 1 single product months before either Nvidia or AMD, announced the release date of 3 sperate products, not counting CPUs, 6 weeks before AMD even announced their product line. Which gave them roughly at least 6 weeks more to continually ship 1 single product to the various retailers. The math is't difficult.

Managing expectations is what AMD could have done to prevent the bad press and angry fans. Communicating with their customers. Their Twitter feed and website are barren of any information indicating anything is wrong or abnormal, and are geared to make you want to buy a product that is impossible to attain. I really expected better.

Frustrated about the lack of GeForce RTX 30 Series stock? Miners might deserve some of the blame. According to a report from Barron’s (via Bitcoin.com and Moore’s Law Is Dead), NVIDIA sold a substantial amount of its Ampere graphics cards to ether enthusiasts instead of gamers.

“For the quarter in review, Nvidia sold at least $175 million worth of new generation GPUs to ethereum miners, helping the outperformance,” Bitcoin.com reported based on a note from RBC Capital Markets analyst Mitch Steves. “The analyst had guided sales to miners to come in at $150 million for the quarter.”

“Steves noted that the upcoming network upgrade of the Ethereum blockchain, also known as Ethereum 2.0, which is scheduled to take place sometime in December, demands that miners switch over to more efficient mining hardware. Nvidia’s new Ampere GPU chips are thought to meet that need.”
And that shipping thingy:

Quote:
A flotilla of almost a dozen cargo vessels sits anchored just south of Los Angeles this weekend, waiting for berth space. Around the twin ports of L.A. and Long Beach, shipping containers are already stacked five and six high -- the maximum the fire department will allow.

“Anywhere you go, there are just containers everywhere,” said Weston LaBar, CEO of the Harbor Trucking Association, an industry group in Long Beach representing carriers who haul the steel boxes to and from the ports. “It’s maddening.”

The perfect storm is swamping the busiest gateway to the U.S. economy heading into the holiday season: Labor and equipment shortages are colliding with the still-healthy purchasing power of American consumers -- all complicated by a worsening pandemic that’s making workers and employers extra-tentative. Truckers are struggling to keep up with the wave of record imports.

“Try to pour 10 gallons of water into a five-gallon bucket,” LaBar said, “and you’re going to have a hard time.”

Its just expensive and looking like it may be the only option if the sea freight **** doesn't clear up.
If air freight sees the sea freight clog up you can bet their rates will rise quickly. Shipping costs is very flexible in that industry.

I do feel they may have moved the launch date of the cards in 2021...I don't that people stay home and there's demand but the companies can't meet the demand because the nature of the circumstances..Kinda futile launch if you ask me unless .... (fill in conspiracy theories)

It's on a sell-off this morning down 10% already. But if anything the last several years should teach us, it's that once it goes down it will eventually come back up again. And when it does, it will come back up fast, just like when it goes down it goes down fast.

I'm starting to think, if it hits under 10K again, I might just have to throw some money into it and stop worrying about it being "down for good" no matter how risky it seems.

I think it would've been best at this point to have just waited and built up stock, work on drivers in the mean time, etc.. It seems there just isn't enough fab capacity to go around, and we're in the middle of a sort of perfect storm here with lots of factors causing problems in the supply chain above and beyond limited capacity. Since the GPUs seem to be taking a back seat, logically they are the ones who should've waited to be launched.

Been following some streams and the AIB availability has been as bad as the original 6800 series launch and far worse than anything nVidia did. Meanwhile people scoring 3080s like it is no body’s business.

Overpriced 3090 are as abundant as sand here.
3070 you could scrounge one up if you really wanted to.
3080 impossible to get. Backorder list so long they're still on launch day fulfillment.

AMDs cards are absolutely not to be seen. Not even 1.

Well guys my amazon bot picked me up a gigabyte 6800xt reference card. Supposed to arrive wed. dec 16th.

The seller is 'Amazon.com Services LLC'.
The price? $799

Looks like amazon be joining up with scalpers my bois.

I am trying to get a price match/reduction, but they are fighting it since the newegg listing is not on their site. They only want to match prices that are on their website.
