Did you manage to buy a Radeon RX 6800/6800 XT GPU?

AMD's day-1 stock didn't last long

AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT Preview

Did you manage to buy a Radeon RX 6800/6800 XT GPU?

AMD's Radeon RX 6800 series has just launched, and like the RTX 30 series before it, retail stocks did not last long in the UK. As usual, websites were swarmed with potential buyers, creating long page load times and a lot of 404 errors. 

After we published our AMD Radeon RX 6800/6800 XT review, we went to see if we could find any graphics cards in stock at the UK's main PC components retailers. We failed to find a single graphics card, though it was clear that these graphics cards were experiencing insane levels of demand. 

We will provide you with links to several UK retailers so you can check for RX 6800 series stock yourself, but what we want to know is whether or not you have managed to purchase one of AMD's new RDNA 2 graphics cards. Please comment on Facebook, Twitter or on the OC3D Forums if you have. 

2020 has left a lot of people hungry for new gaming hardware, and this can be seen within both the PC and console markets. With the ongoing pandemic restricting outdoor activities, gamers are willing to spend more on their PCs and console setups. Demand for new graphics cards has never been this high, and manufacturers are struggling to keep up with demand. 

If you have managed to purchase a Rade on RX 6800 series graphics card, please let us know. We would love to know how many folks managed to actually purchase a new graphics card today. If you didn't manage to get a GPU today, know that additional stock is expected to arrive at retailers soon and that aftermarket RX 6000 series graphics cards are expected as early as next week.

Another jovial festival. Seems many have made their way to Ebay already for £1500.

You know what? all of this anger and angst seems almost well avoided by the £2000 I spent on two 2080Tis now.

When I saw the reviews for the 6000 series I had a long hard think, and came to the conclusion that they offered me absolutely nothing for my chosen resolution. In fact, my 2080Tis are better at RT, have DLSS support, RT voice and the encoding isn't s**t either. Which I have been using lately as our PUBG team has 5, so rather than split the party we sit out games and I stream the game to the guy not playing when it's not my turn. It's still garbage on AMD.

Yeah, I am going there. Feature wise? I think these cards are too expensive. The raster performance is very good, but when they lose every other feature any one gives a toss about now (ignoring RT of course !) they are just not worth the money. A consequence of going TSMC I suppose.

Absolutely nothing to entice me away from what I have, and the stress and anxiety would probably cause me more aggro. Far more aggro. I hate seeing human greed being practiced, like OCUK did with their prices earlier. It disgusts me.Quote

Would be so interesting to see comparisons on how much extra cost GDDR6X brings vs. extra cache. But probably only one of those will drop significantly in price over time.Quote

I'll wait until next year and see how much the cards have come down in price. My 2080 Super will do the job until I want to replace itQuote

Looking at the 4k benchmarks on HWUB I would say that in this instance the GDDRX seems to make a big difference. The 6800 cards fall off a cliff at 4k.

I would happily pay the extra for it, let's just put it that way. Well, if I were gaming at 4k any way.

I do like these cards. They are definitely a step in the right direction. However, the sacrifices for the sake of fifty quid seem just a little too much for me. With prices gouged? I would go Nvidia. It wouldn't be so much of an issue if the prices were what we were told, but once again they got gouged.

People are asking £1500 for a card on Ebay. For £100 more you can go and order a 3090 as I type this.

Yeah, thanks but no thanks.Quote
