when do you get it

we need benchmarks

Well, the date I got is the 27th, but I'm hoping before that. Otherwise the AIB's are in stock before the reference ones, that supposedly should've been in stock before the AIB's... :lol:

They had some MSI 6800 XT's in stock, don't remember how many, but when the page refreshed with a buy button I just went with the first one I could buy XD.

Well tonight I'm going to bed with a very heavy heart. I've just learned that a good friend from my golf club has passed away today with Covid. Devastated doesn't quite sum how I feel. I'll admit I cried when I found out and I'm proud of that. Graphics cards am I really bothered? Not really. Just so sad. Good night. This stuff is not really important.

only thing i thought he was right about is AMD should have waited for the AIB cards and done them all at once like NV

but it may have not mattered much in the end

when they saw the 3000's go up in smoke they should have done the reviews delayed sales for more stock as it not like NV is selling very many 3000 cards at all at this point anyway :lol:

maybe delay sales to black Friday and drop all the cards at once

Well tomorrow I'll try and implement my Baldric cunning plan and if that works great. If not I might try my luck on Wednesday and if I'm unlucky I'll move on until a card from either side becomes available to buy. It's not really a big deal TBH I can wait. Long time Team Red might need a change. It's not the most important thing in my life at the moment.

Riptide Nov 23, 2020 07:02 PM

Word has it newegg had a drop of 6800 cards about 20 minutes ago.

Gone in seconds.

Why can't we just hop on a backorder FFS. I don't know why they refuse to allow it.

LordHawkwind Nov 24, 2020 03:25 PM

So as always Baldric's plan has gone up in smoke. Sales Manager rang me today saying no stock as they are not an official AMD reseller. Not surprised. Worth a try.

TBH I'm not sure about bothering with tomorrow I'll see. Looked for XseriesX at Currys today and within 1 minute 823 people (bot bast*rds) were ahead of me in the queue :lol: I actually got an email from AMD today saying I can get Far Cry 6 free with a 3000 processor WTF. Where the F*ck are your 5000 CPU's?

Maybe the next email will offer me Far Cry 6 with a new purchase of a 5600XT downgrade :lol: They need to sell something if they're not producing any stock of 5000 & 6800's. Schitt show TBH.

At least United are beating some Turkish pub team from Istanbul. Can't pronounce their second name :lol:

I still feel bad for all those who waited. I have a feeling this is where GPU vendors feel its one of the last oorah's of high margins before things tail off.

I honestly didn't expect the card to last this long. Figured the pump would fail and I'd have to get a waterblock for it at some point.

It clocks good enough its worth keeping in service though. If it topped out at 1650-1700 I'd have upgraded to a Vega II. But since I only game at 1080p 60hz I am still fine with V64. I can even run RE3 fully maxed out and keep 40-50 FPS. So to me, it still does all I need it to do.

Reminds me tho- gotta update meh system specs. lol.

ASRock announces Radeon RX 6900 XT

ASRock is the first manufacturer to unveil its Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card.

Today is the day AMD lifts the embargo on Radeon RX 6800(XT) custom card reviews. However, in just in little over two weeks we will see another Radeon high-end GPU on a market, the Radeon RX 6900 XT. So far no board partner has showcased its RX 6900 XT model, thus ASRock is the first.

Yeston Radeon RX 6800 XT SAKURA Edition pictured

Yeston is the first AMD board partner to showcase a white edition of the Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics cards.

Chinese AMD board partner is preparing its first custom design based on Radeon RX 6800 XT SKU. The graphics card appears to be a full custom design, including the board, which appears to be white (a very unique feature for a Radeon card).

The Sakura Hitomi (if the translation is correct) is a new triple-fan and 2.5-slot design model that will be kept in white and dusty rose appeal. There is also a full cover backplate with a graphic printed on it.

The PCB is much shorter than the cooler itself, only two fans are mounted right on top of the board. This also means that power connectors are located in the center, which is not the most convenient place for cable management.

Yeston claims that the RX 6800 XT Sakura Edition will be available in December. These cards are usually reserved for the Chinese market, but they can be obtained internationally through popular Chinese-based retailers.

Wait for the GamersNexus review.

Them fan blade coverings ink mah pickle a bit thinking they may impede air flow :yep:

Otherwise Sakura :masterrace:

Leprechaun Nov 25, 2020 08:15 AM

okay fine then, I'll start today.
I went down to Staples and bought a ton of AMD's new cards.
They come in stacks of 500. Pretty cheap too.

Seyiji Nov 25, 2020 08:23 AM

lol 769 to 899 for 6800 xt no thanks

Everything out of stock and scalpers are probably gonna sell em for 1300 bux

Riptide Nov 25, 2020 08:25 AM

Newegg listings showed up about 610AM this morning. Nothing in stock. Paper launch this morning I guess. Someone claims on discord to have seen add to cart so maybe they had a few, but I never saw anything.

Leprechaun Nov 25, 2020 08:27 AM

I didn't see any. All I see is completely inflated pricing as predicted.

Like is said for stock before "7x more AIB than reference"
7x0 = 0

Riptide Nov 25, 2020 08:31 AM

Well I'm not severely upset, it's just a GPU. That said, I had mentally prep'd myself for another sh1t show this morning and that's what we got.

Hate it when I'm right sometimes. :bleh:

First time in mah lyfe I decide to F5 and jam newegg looking for a piece of hardware. I leave the same way I came in dripping jizz pellets out of my pooper !___!

Wasn't even this bad getting my Zen2 rig last year :lol:

Mangler Nov 25, 2020 08:41 AM

I never imagined anyone beating nvidia when it came to the shitshow known as the 3xxx launch, congrats AMD!

And has lyin' Frank Azor paid up yet?

Riptide Nov 25, 2020 08:42 AM

Let's call it a tie I guess?

I just think these vendors should be more forthcoming like micro center was regarding expectations on stock levels.
