    Pretty sure x16 vs x8 doesn't mean much relative to FPS.

    that's probably why they only put 4gb on it. They had to keep this beast on a leash :rolleyes:

    I wonder if there will EVER be stock again? I mean, if they release a new product next year that is supposed to be affordable and delivered in decent supply, what's to stop scalpers from just blowing loads of money on those new cards and selling them? Only a completely saturated market will stop scalpers from buying all of them.

    The only things that will change prices and availability are a long-term fall in crypto profitability or a paradigm shift in how we render computer graphics.

    I see this as good news:
    Let's face it, none of us were going to buy this. It is, however, distracting miners. Remember, there's a chip shortage all-around. Since these GPUs only have 4GB, that allows for the extra memory they should have had go toward other/better products, thereby alleviating the chip shortage just a little bit. Since these are low-binned chips, there should be plenty to produce, which ought to help saturate the mining market, and hopefully lower prices of higher-tier products. Don't get me wrong, I know higher-tier products are still going to be outrageously expensive, but, every little bit helps.

    It is around €557 here in my country. It is just €90 less than the cheapest RX6600.
    Prices here are a joke honestly, especially if we compare it with the income.

    An RX560 costs around €310. Others are non-existent like the 570, 580 etc.
    An RX6600 costs €760 average.
    An RX6600 XT costs €950 average.
    An RX6700 XT costs €1295 average.
    An RX6800 costs €1770 average.
    An RX6800 XT costs €1915 average.
    An RX6900 XT costs €2085 average.

    A GTX 1650 costs €450 average.
    A GTX 1660 (Non Super and Non Ti) costs €760 average.
    A GTX 1660 Ti costs €774 average. Super gone extinct.
    An RTX 3060 (Non Ti) costs €1070 average.
    An RTX 3060 Ti costs €1323 average.
    An RTX 3070 (Non Ti) costs €1550 average.
    An RTX 3070 Ti costs €1740 average.
    An RTX 3080 10G costs €2180 average. 12G virtually non-existent (only B2B).
    An RTX 3080 Ti costs €2815 average.
    Can't find any RTX 3090.

    The funny thing is that in my country we have a new warranty rule, it is based on price ranges. In that rule if a product doesn't have a minimum warranty years in the given price range then it can only be sold as a B2B item.
    So because of the big price increase in the latest years pushed most of the cards above the upper range they all at least need 3 years of warranty. So if a card does not have at least 3 years then it is not eligible as a B2C product.
    Making a lot of cards not available for the public basically.

    Just to make it more bizarre/funny the median monthly income is €621.

    At this point AMD is thinking they should have priced the msrp with an even more ridiculously high price.

    Is there any other decently profitable crypto besides Eth that benefits from GPU mining instead of an ASIC?
    cuz u CAN"T mine eth with only 4Gb, the current DAG is around 4.4Gb and increasing.

    IF it truly is useless for mining, it should crash in price relatively soon, rx570 can be easily found at $250, rx560 ~$150, so this card should slot right in the middle at best, since it is also an awful sell to the majority of users on pcie 3.0, price should fall even further, heck it cant even deliver as an htpc card

    Nah it was well calculated. They took all money they could to maintain any reputation. I think they overdid it.
    You have no idea how cheap it was to produce.

    Why doesn’t AMD and nVidia stop selling cards and just use all of them to mine crypto?

    Becouse crypto will fall and they have to continue making money. Reputation comes second at this point so miners are first gamers second.

    Exactly, they and their board partners should be doing more to get the cards into hands of consumers. They need to ship more to brick and mortar stores and force the stores to implement quantity restrictions.

    That explains the price. And all the lack of features.
    It´s another gpu made for miners. Not for gamers.
