    At this point i am just going to quit gaming .
    Well no that isn't the case . I am even going to give up on dreaming of going back to gaming.
    I am using 980ti and going to use it as long as it is breathing

    I wonder how they can justify the huge price increase over the 6900xt. Hell, these cards are pretty much in the same price bracket as the insanely priced 3090Ti.

    Im afraid of next gen high end gpu prices. 7900xt and 4090 will have similar price tags as these.

    Placeholder/speculation bait + Aussie tax.

    No way are AMD going to try charging 2000+ euro for a warmed up 6900 when they're struggling to shift the originals for nearly half that price, are they?

    They are not struggling to sell theirs at their price point. Just alot of nivida fanboys out there that will pay anything stupidly for them.
    Even if I prefer AMD gpus, way in hell I would pay anything stupidly over MSRP. Id still be on my 5700xt if I didnt get my 6800xt for a great deal.

    Those shops are just hoping some moneybags will pay anything to be the first ones to get a sample of the new card.

    pfff... They can not put the price at more than X2,5.
    The actual RX 6900XT it around 1400 or 1600 Euro at max in shop and there is no lack of stock.

    Don't believe scalper's price.

    They're just following 3090Ti pricing. $2000+ is the new normal for high-end GPUs and I'm sure every last one will fly off the shelves. Honestly I don't even know why I read up on this stuff anymore. I'd spend $2000 on literally anything else. That much cost for MOAR FPS is the dumbest crap I've ever seen in my life, lol.

    A retailer can put whatever price they want for something nobody yet has, market forces cant have an impact on something that doesn't yet physically exist.

    Has a MSRP been listed yet?

    Looks like typical price gouging to me.

    MSRP is a myth.

    So true.

    AMD and Nvidia should simple release future cards without any MSRP...

    Indeed. Market demand dictates the prices not some silly number nvidia and amd put just for show.
