    What gets me is that the MSRP for the Reference 6900xt is what 999.99 USD and the 3rd party ones are like well over 1500-1600+ USD? 500-600+ dollars more over the stock reference, Very big jump in price, in my view, it ain't worth it, no offense.

    Again I would rather get 2 Titan Xp's and it would certainly rival or slightly surpass 6900xt or the Mighty RTX 3090, Despite no Raytracing nor DLSS, just pure rasterization at a fraction of the price. LOL, almost 4k USD for these cards, come on man, again, 2 Xp's would give run for its money. I already got 4 Xp's for my future 4-way sli project(Waaaaaay in the future), Got one for 500.00 usd, The Star Wars Edition, Absolute beauty, can't beat the price, Card is still an animal, no doubt about it.

    @A M D BugBear 4 way sli ??? Is there anything at all that can use 4 way sli? From what i remember 3 way scaling was bad small gains and not always and 4way pretty much never gave any advantage ... Except 3dmark :p

    Did a price check, prices are on pair on most 6900XT's that are not in stock regardless of brand, way under half the price than the example from that shop being absolute arses.
    I won't buy any GPU in the near future and probably never if this madness continues, f gaming when it comes to that tbh.

    Thought you may have known by now...

    Sorry for the complete off topic here:

    Please visit my 4-way sli thread, been going on for almost 2 years, and no, I don't play games at all really, all of my time, everything is devoted to nothing but that(Tuning/Testing/etc).

    Link to my thread(Sticky):

    Never gave any real advantage? You sure about that? Read over my thread, Your in a shock of your life. :)

    In fact, the RX 6800 XT is so popular (much like the RTX 3080), and soooo outta stock, that its asking price is pretty near that of some RX 6900 XTs. That's one of the reasons why I'd opted for the RX 6900 XT, surprisingly, the 6900 XTs are more easily available, and priced not that much above the perpetually OOS RX 6800 XTs.
