    I would have liked to see an RT performance comparison.. but it looks like a really strong lineup. If I can't get a 3080 by the time the 6800XTs come out, looks like Ill be going with a 6800XT instead. I don't think the extra $400+ for 8 CUs is worth on the 6900XT.

    I will still hold any true jugdement till third party reviews, but it least looks like AMD is getting serious, not seen this since the 7000 series

    Soooo pricing on these are... Weird? Definitely lower than Nvidia but I still think these are a little high. These are cool but I'm more interested in seeing mainstream rdna2 products.

    6800XT vs. 3080: ~same performance (or maybe a bit better?), $50 less, less power consumption, +6GB VRAM.
    6900 XT vs. 3090: ~same performance (or maybe a bit better?), less power consumption, -4GB VRAM, $500 less.

    What just happened? :D

    AMD offers same performance for $500 less, and you say it's high?

    I was hoping for 500$ rx 6800 that would be amazing.

    I can only say... finally. Let the GPU wars begin. 6900XT is the killer card.

    Why please explain they have a card that equals and beats the 3090 with less power for hundreds less and its too expensive, you must be either a fanboi or delusional

    Compared to RTX 3090? What if you crank 6900XT to power limit of 3090?

    I wonder just how many will go for a 6900XT right now. For me , it is way out of my league and what i am willing to pay for a video card.

    like i said , for ME it is too expensive!

    Good job instantly putting a label on someone LOL

    It could actually be faster. But i do not think these cards overclock very well. infact overclocking ability has been declining everywhere over the years, which is really a big let down for me.

    So, no word on RT performance. That's not a coincidence.
    A 6800XT with much worse RT performance than a 3080 for 50$ less isn't that appealing to be honest.
    As expected, we'll have to wait for more charts, from independent reviewers.
    The 6900XT is another story. Even with half the RT performance compared to a 3090, we're talking 500$ here.

    I mean he may also argue the 3090 is overpriced too.
