    Isn't the 6700xt not the best for mining due to the design ie the 5700xt is better? this may be helping things.
    I hope but AMD has much less supply than Nvidia,and don't even seem to care about pretending to have GPUs at RRP. At least with the FE you have a small chance of getting one that way!

    True, I would get a reference 6700xt but AMD don't deem the UK worthy of shipment.

    I concur, It does feel like AMD has abandoned the UK market to be honest. I have never seen any of their GPU's in stock on their UK store and trying to get hold of a 6800XT from anywhere is nigh on impossible, I have been looking since launch. I signed up for some alerts, which triggered once, but the pricing was double RRP.

    I appreciate there is a component shortage, but it is getting frustrating.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    Interestingly the longer this is going on the more I am finding how good the R9 290 is, a game I was playing at 4k very high is now at 1440p high and I will be honest and say I cant tell the difference. I will say the graphics is allowed to run at 100% utilisation in my current system which certainly helps.

    As it is the 290 is borrowed from a second editing pc (which now has a 7750) which could do with its 290 back eventually but the urgency certainly isn't there so I am happy to wait this out as long as needed.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    Speaking of - does anyone have the UK RRP of the 6000-series AMD cards lying around? I know they're not where things are, but it'd be nice to have a bar to compare prices to.

    They have so much cheek on facebook marketplace they even call themselves GPU merchants. This guy hires out a self storage room just for these GPU's

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    Seems stock is returning and scalper prices are coming back down. AWD-IT are now showing 6700xts at less than £700, seems the retailer prices coming down is slowly happening.

    I might just get another vega 56 (or 64) if they drop hard enough as I was happy enough with mine before selling it to a miner so could make a profit while standing still.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    Yeah stock seems to be reappearing, albeit at high prices but staying available unlike a couple of months ago, if this continues I think prices will have to start coming down a little to move stock.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    It's still utterly pathetic out there though. Ludicrously expensive unobtainium. I think you can safely write 2021 off, if you want to buy a GPU at or near RRP.

    The 1660 Ti I bought second hand last summer for £206 has turned out to be a jammily good purchase. It was only supposed to be a stopgap, but it does great for the games I play so I think I'll be skipping this generation entirely. If things had been reasonable in terms of pricing and availability I would probably have sprung for a 3060 Ti, but I'm just so utterly put off by how the past 8 months have been that they can all do one as far as I'm concerned. Nvidia, AMD, fabs, board partners, distributors, retailers, miners, scalpers and bots can all get in the bin. There's free market, supply and demand and there's taking the mick, and I think some serious amounts of Michael have been extracted during this fiasco.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    I think things are starting to improve a bit. Scan had 2 drops , 1 each week. Still cards sold out in minutes, but some managed to secure 3060tu FE for under £400. China is banning mining and Eth v2 will come on stream soon. So maybe we will be able to secure some GPUs still this year.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    3060ti would do, I really don't want to go to the darkside (nvidia) but AMD being unwilling to ship to me and high prices elsewhere its which ever I can get first.

    On the thing Of look I built a PC for a friend in November and got a new 5600xt for £205. If I knew what was going to happen I would have bought all of them.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    I'm still glad that I had no need for a new GPU, due to having my Vega 56 already for the past few years.

    I'm also glad that I haven't had the lack of low-priced HDDs (due to Chia miners) affect me, as I bought a few externals last year to shuck when storage space got low.

    Now my storage space has reached that point, so it's time to shuck.

    Re: Predictions on when GPUs will be back at RRP.

    I'd be surprised if GPU prices ever drop back to comparably low levels, regardless of what happens with mining.

    Even if gpu mining falls off a cliff, the scalpers will keep the GPU market in their sights - I fully expect them to try and hoover up cards at every launch, to constrict supply and create demand. I'm not suggesting a conscious collective effort, just a confluence of their self interest creating the bubble they might well profit from.

    That will be halted just as soon as NVidia/AMD announce next generation plans - scalpers won't want to be left with stock that no-one wants.
