    "This would put even more pressure on the company that currently cannot meet the demand of its customers with the graphics cards released so far."

    What's Nvidia got to do with a Radeon card? :p

    If you are trying to play fanboy with that assumingly sarcastic question, look at what is available from legitimate retailers/e-tailers right now, not including auction sites.

    It is either new (and old) gpu's for multiple times MSRP or you just can't find them in-stock/backordered. The microcenter in my state for instance does not have anything newer than a GTX 1050 ti or rx 580.

    I've heard rumors amd is staggering their stock of gpu's to gradually trickle availability and at least give chance to purchase instead of lose their entire stock for which they have to take months again to rely on fabs to restock. Covid not helping either.

    Whatever the plan may be, right now BOTH companies are not meeting demand.

    No worries, I've got a spare Enermax Max Revo 1500W PSU on standby.

    At this point all this nonsense "lauches" feel more like availability of players in fantasy leagues, you do not own them but you can include them and brag and bet who is better and who can win the most, but not having absolutely nothing physical.

    Maybe for 2022 we can afford to buy one at at least MSRP, I ended up getting at 350 USD a vega 56, two years ago and boy it was not cheap, basically two years later of the launch date and scarce availability, this not looking good at all. On top of that people seem to be buyin by A LOT 5600 - 5700 XTs adn prices went up by quite a lot, they are 750 -800 USD in my country, the only one at prices I can afford are 5600 XTs at the same price I bought my vega 350 bucks for a MSRP 280 USD card, no way.

    Yeah the limited availability here is also driving up prices and the few GPU's that do get shipped in are going fast so I have little hopes for the 6900XT although I will be interested in seeing if it's going to be 3090 priced or less and how much quantity if any will even be available on the 8th though I am expecting it to be severely limited and very expensive. :D
    (Curious to see NVIDIA shipping out a few 3060's even if they're gone now whereas initial 6800's were almost nothing and the customs were nothing with no known availability date, least the 3070's and 3080's are now fairly stable at late January as the estimated date for new availability.)

    Nvidia delivers thousands of cards every week, they are just flying off the shelves, meanwhile AMD barely ships any.

    In 6 months, go check steam hw survey, and you will see what I mean. Nvidia 3000 series is going to have a HUGE marketshare compared to AMD 6000 series.

    3080 is already on 0.23% which is the same as AMD 5700 series, which is 18 months old...
    Most popular AMD cards are 570 and 580 lol, sitting at 1-2%


    Nvidia made the right decision going with Samsung instead of TSMC. TSMC is simply overbooked right now. Ampere is selling like hotcakes. Demand is huge.

    Why? It shows Ryzen taking marketshare just fine, which it obviously does.

    But GPU marketshare can't be trusted? LOL

    AMD GPU's simply does not sell that well. Bad drivers and support does that.

    5700XT owners knows what I'm talking about, took AMD 4 months to launch a samewhat stable driver. Tons of users were selling and going back to Nvidia in those 4 months. Google it. Thousands of posts about 5700 users and BSOD/Crashing + VRM Temp issues.

    Several retailers already said that most 6800 buyers will be waiting deep into 2021 to recieve a card. Most stores did not recieve ANY CARDS for 6800 series release. NONE at all.
