Official 6x00 Stock Thread(or lack thereof)

Prices seem generally higher then the 3080 cards. All kinds in the $800 and over range. Really believe they should be selling them at lower then the 3080 by $100, who am I kidding AMD is a Corporation just like The Jacket.:lol:
 
In three months, there is gonna be so much stock of everything. :lol:

Some of the cards look sweet and I can't wait to pick one up in several weeks.
 
The obvious was pointed out to me.
Mark PAPERmaster works at AMD.
The trolling was built into this whole thing.
 
One story is that there is a major shipping issue. Ships not offloading. So maybe not a production issue of the gpus. Another story is that Nvidia is sending gpus directly to miners to keep prices high as they have caught up production.

I've heard that Jensen and Lisa Su have pet Unicorns. Are you going to believe that one too :lol:

you ever worked on a ship :hmm:
all international shipping is bad now


Members of one crew had to shave their heads after running out of shampoo because no one could go ashore for provisions, according to the survey. Another ship’s captain had to pull the tooth of a seafarer who could not go ashore to see a dentist, a shipping company executive said.
Mr. Platten, of the International Chamber of Shipping, said that if the crisis continued, vessels would inevitably stop sailing. “It’s not going to be suddenly, tomorrow, that they’re all going to stop,” he said. “It’ll be a gradual creeping up on this, and that’s a real worry for the global supply chain.”

Some ships have already been idled, at least temporarily, because seafarers refused to keep working. Under international maritime law, an undermanned ship cannot sail.

sounds like a barrel of laughs :hmm:

So, did any go on sale in the U.K.? weirdest launch ever...

Back on topic. No there were no cards on sale in the UK. This from Scan UK;

"For the custom cooler cards launching at 2pm we have received no stock so we will not be offering any of these for sale or pre-order today. For now we have removed them from the website until we have more information. We are sorry for the inconvenience to those who would like to pre-order. As soon as we get confirmed shipping and stock on shelf information we will share it on this page and list the available models on the website."

And this from Gibbo over at Overclockers UK https://www.overclockers.co.uk/forums/threads/todays-6800-series-aib-launch-important-info.18908580/ Arguably these are the two biggest retails in the UK.

I rang CCL Online and they said they couldn't understand why AMD were calling it a launch as no one in the UK has stock. All they had received was listings for the cards which they published but zero stock.

This is how it looked in europe https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/d...adeon-6800-delivery-issues-far-into-2021.html Also lots of reports of no stock in Denmark, Spain, the Netherlands and Portugal.

Haven't seen a response from AMD yet?
 
So the score at half time is consoles 3 million - AMD Zen 3 & 6800 Nil. Can the plucky underdog come back in the second half? It looks a tall order.

I know I said I'd behave but this situation is just pure gold dust. I didn't actually bother looking today not because I thought it would be this bad just F5 fatigue I guess. Can only take so much disappointment :bleh:
 
Are all the planes grounded in the USA & Asia? If they knew the above and shipped them anyway that actually makes the whole situation worse :lol: Looking at some of the prices that went up you'd think they'd hand deliver them by Lear Jet.

mass cargo does not go by plane .

one card shipped to a end customer sure

100's of cards not likely and would cost a ton more

Bill hardly any planes are carrying passengers due to the pandemic. Accept it's going to be dearer but what's the alternative. Today, really. This has made AMD and Frank Azor especially the laughing stock of the graphics world. A reference launch with a few hundred cards is bad but an AIB launch with none, zero, nada. How low can they go?

Here's a quote from Jay2C..

"There was a lot of expectation from folks saying AMD stock would be great once AIB stock launches. Retailer after retailer is now saying they got ZERO inventory for tomorrow embargo drop on custom cards. This is so much worse than expected. @AMD this was 100% botched. Even AMD fanboys have to admit, this was so much worse than NVIDIA launch in every single way. We needed AMD to deliver and unfortunately they showed us how a bad launch can get even worse."

Like him or not he speaks the truth. It's difficult to defend the indefensible.
