    If only there was a stock this would be my upgrade.

    I'm seeing some stock these days with both AMD and Nvidia cards, but it's no wonder when the prices are utterly witless. I can't imagine anyone paying those prices anymore. I expect 6700 (XT) to get idiotic prices from the get-go.

    And Nvidia would release a 3070ti with 12GB RAM, and beat this?

    I would like to see AMD make a more affordable card by reducing the number of CUs & SPs (of course) but leaving the blinking bus width alone. Perhaps, though, going to a 192-bit wide PCIe bus interface is a chief ingredient of cost reduction. Seems like amputating half of the CU's & SPs would be enough to hobble performance without having to cut the bus, too! Sounds like a nice product, though, maybe...

    good news, bad news

    the good news is this card is a winner in the segment. the bad news is mining.

    it would be good news if AIB's that order from AMD and Nvidia adjusted their economic forecast because that lower production met Ethereum 2.0 and created a perfect storm. but then again these are the same companies to pimp the Rocket Lake chipset for a product with an e.o.l. of six months

    imho, there should be a separate line just for mining without all the fancy outputs and rgb but with long two slot coolers. AND that demand should be accurately reflected as separate from enthusiast.
    the bad news is i'm skeptical

    The 5700XT and the 2070 /S were fairly equivalent so it wouldn't be a surprise to see the 6700XT in that same neighborhood again.

    Not that we can have any of these things.

    we'll see but if those leaks are true it's too much of a cutdown,35% fewer shaders than 6800 and a 192-bit bus
    https://videocardz.com/newz/amd-radeon-rx-6700-xt-teased-with-12gb-gddr6-memory
    3070 is just 5-7% slower overall


    I'd like a card between 3060ti and 3070 with 12G and infinity cache but we'll see if that's realistic if navi22 is that cut down.I think many of those commentators on YT get it wrong when they compare taking ps5 gpu as the basis.a 2560sp navi could definitely match 3070 if it was powering a console,but desktop is another story.6800xt is just 30% faster here despite it's literally double the ps5 gpu.

    I have been an AMD fan for a long time. My current main rig (and even some of my others) are all AMD. But right now AMD leads the way in producing things you cannot find or cannot afford (or maybe should not afford). I don't for a second believe this is all demand driven. That meaning I don't think the scarcity is from high demand alone. I think there are others factors, maybe like COVID but also because of scalpers and bots and probably other nefarious things. It's so bad getting anything AMD right now that I was thinking of switching to Intel when Rocket Lake comes out. I have a feeling those CPUs will be far easier to get and I think Intel (being behind the 8 ball now) will keep the prices on the lower end to be competitive.

    In Portugal there´s some minimal stock of the 6800 but the prices... More than 800€ for the cheapest 6800!...

    Same here man. Even if the msrp will be 400$ for the 6700xt it will cost 600-700euros.

    Same in Sweden. Not worth it.
    I expect to be perhaps able to purchase a decent GPU which doesn't cost an arm and a leg with the next Black Friday. Which I'm going to need as I will get VR again.

    Another paper launch for scalpers to scalp the 2 cards per country.
