    No test chart in crypto???... (ok i run far far away lol)
    very nice review.
    Not too overexpensive in shop, it is 1599.95 Euro... 3 are on command on a friend's shop, but he will recieve only 1 from MSI, so yes few stock.

    2 Titan Xp's will be just as fast or faster if tuned properly, despite no raytracing cores/dlss aspect, At a fraction of the price, Huge difference, again, absolutely no disrespect for owners out there, also could careless about Raytracing atm.

    If your very lucky, you can pick a Titan Xp for 500.00 USD.

    I mean just two Titan Xp's can rival even the mighty RTX 3090.

    Thanks for sharing, very sad, Look at that price, SMH.

    EDIT:

    Someone actually bought the dang thing? >>Laughs<< @ almost 3.6k USD? SMH. Says out of stock, was in stock earlier.

    I really wanna know what's going on with Assassins Creed: Valhalla. As a satisfied MSI card owner it seems their cooling solution is here again it seems extremely performant.

    Oh lordy, these reviews are practically worthless given we can't get the cards unless we disregard our personal monetary morals or go without food! Yes, I'm disenchanted! Although, I do sit in a queue for a 3080 TUF in the 400's bought for just a little over MRSP, so I got the value, but I ain't got no card (apart from my 1070 which is fine).......it does make you wonder how much value we're losing out in not having our cards given that we keep our hardware for perhaps a max of 4 or 5 yrs & often less.

    .......But keep on keeping on Hilbert, the end of the tunnel is in sight with vaccinations and Covid and technology black hole is on the wane!

    @Goiur what you mean 3 months ? Pretty much the realisation after a month that we are not getting any cards near msrp anytime soon settled in :p

    From nvidia's first launch to amd "promise of stock" to the cold truth of failure... about 3 months.

    In Canada all cards both nVidia and AMD are out of stock. The only card you can buy is from scalpers from china on Amazon and they are sold for 2-3 times the MSRP.

    Oh yeah you can buy the 1030 GT in Canada too. If you are willing to pay 120 to 160$ for what basically is an iGPU grade GPU. I mean this card should be sold for 80$ max and even at 80$ it would not be a great deal. The card is about on par with a Ryzen 3200G ... the only reason it would make sense to buy it at the current price is because everything else is out of stock.

    Found one in stock... but look at that price, retailers are the new scalpers.

    And here I had thought paying 1350USD (local currency to USD) for my Sapphire Nitro+ RX 6900 XT was an act of utter madness.....


    Edit - I don't understand why Asus/MSI/Gigabyte RX 6900 XT air-cooled cards are generally being sold at higher prices than PowerColor/Sapphire/XFX ones. I don't know about others, but I'd prefer PowerColor/XFX/Sapphire to Asus/MSI/Gigabyte as the former are AMD exclusive AIB partners. Just like IF I were to buy nVidia cards, I'd take Palit/eVGA/Leadtek/Galaxy/etc over MSI/Gigabyte/Asus because the former are nVidia exclusive AIB's partners.

    That's why I have a PowerColor RX VEGA64 Red Devil and the Sapphire Nitro+ RX 6900 XT, as well as a Leadtek GTX 1080 Hurricane OC...I don't wanna pay more for Asus and its ilk simply because they're thought of as 'big names'.
