    I was about to post that the reviews weren't showing up on the front page but, it's righted itself. I've been looking forward to reading these, thanks.

    Hilbert, on p5, re installation, it refers to Nvidia (twice) as GPU being installed.

    now drop $100 or so in price and it's a real winner. The only hope would be for the 16gb of ram to be useful in the coming years.

    I just tried to buy a 6800 XT at Proshop.
    They received 50 and sold out in 2 secs.

    But then I tried searching for it and found this on their site ...

    I knew they were expensive but .. damn. I'm gonna pass on this one!

    Congratz AMD!!! Welcome back to the "fight"! I hope that people who want to buy the cards can get their hands on them. It looks like 6800xt and 3080 trade blows as i expected. I for one managed to get a 3080 by now, so yeah gotta stick with it for a few years.

    Seems this is the way to go if you care about the best 1080p performance. I'm a bit surprised the compute performance was so lacking, since that's usually what AMD was pretty good at in the past.
    Raytracing performance isn't all that great but I guess it could've been worse.

    Price is higher than I'm willing to pay.

    Great card, with couple of niggling issues. Performance seems to drop off with higher resolutions. And RTX performance is mediocre.

    If the price is right and there's availability, then I'll have to say well done AMD.

    Kind of what was expected.

    Nice that leaked info/rumours appeared right for once, not so nice this is another paper launch.
    0 available in my country. shops didnt get any at all, and they do not have a clue when they do will have stock.

    Guess i will still stick to my 1070.

    Haven't finished reading but im curious how the RT compatibility is? Do all previous RT enabled games (including early ones like BF5) also run on this?

    Edit: Looking at other sites, I see at least Metro/Control work fine. Seems like RDNA with RT on falls way behind though.

    So the benchmark charts are without SAM?

    Performance drops a lot in relation to Ampere at 4K, which is disappointing but it's moot with zero availability so... *shrug*

    So the 6800XT is a little slower than 3080 in rasterization, but massively slower in Ray Tracing.
    Overclocking is not there, kinda like the 3080.
