    Re: AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT stock levels disarmingly low

    I've been wondering about this. irl I know maybe a dozen or so people really into PCs and literally all of them were waiting on the 3080. I know it's daft to draw conclusions from such a small sample size but it seems like graphics cards this year have been something everyone was waiting for, especially when you factor in how much of a joke the 20 series was.

    Combine the wait for a better card with one coming in for WAY less money than expected (it seemed everyone was expecting 900-1000 quid) and you've just got huge demand

    I'm hearing that we in the UK got the short stick with both the red and green launches as both companies believe we would take it better than the US for example....

    Also the phrase cos you are in lockdown in the UK has been mentioned a few times

    Am still hoping against hope that I can get hold of a 6800XT this year, but I expect to be disappointed. Also waiting for the 5600X to come into stock, for everything else I'm waiting to see what Black Friday has to offer.

    Actually, that's looking like great value for money by comparison to the latest launches. Considering lack of availability has pushed up pricing beyond the MRSP, plus scalpers on top of that.

    Also, they were available. With DLSS, I'm not really concerned about performance as it is still perfectly fine (my card didn't stop working overnight). Both Nvidia and AMD need to address supply issues moving forward, we saw similar issues with Bitcoin mining, just because they both want to increase per unit profits, doesn't mean they get a free pass on availability. I could easily swap to console gaming and purely use my PC for the "other stuff" without the need for a discrete GPU.

    I think you are not understanding the demand, the hype and the general lack of manpower in a global pandemic to just shift stuff around like you used to be able to do. Just social distancing measures make this a whole heap harder, slower and more labour intensive

    Didn't lockdown *increase* the demand on home computing?

    It sure did but they think we're more tolerant than the US and can get away with it a tad more. No lockdown in the US and they were q'ing up to buy.

    Also demand in US is in an order of like 20 times what it is in the UK and they'll pay the extra no questions

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT stock levels disarmingly low

    50 regulars and 50 6800XT made it to proshop ( powercolor ) all sold out in a heartbeat.
    No other cards to be found in Denmark ATM
    New stock may arrive around the 25 this month, but no specifics given as to brands / numbers, but what happen i assume nop one can be in doubt about.

    My 5700XT i picked up a week or two after release, but no hype for those back then so plenty to choose from ( well at least 5 - 10 or so )

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT stock levels disarmingly low

    I'm sitting pretty for this year on GPU, snagged a 3090 on launch day. But anything else is pretty much unattainable for the rest of the year, so am glad I can get by on the my slightly older machine for a little longer. But this series of launches is a new phenomena in my 30 years of PC enthusiasm and building. Utterly disappointing overall for stock of anything worthwhile.

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT stock levels disarmingly low

    Well I wasn't planning to upgrade until the new year at the earliest but the supply of just about everything I was looking at is in such a stupidly low amount that I'd literally be buying bit by bit and hoping there's nothing wrong with any of it, which is not how I like to buy a full pc.

    Suppose I'll be holding off a bit longer....

    Bit like a global pandemic on this scale is a new phenomena?

    I have a similar dilemma, do I buy the bits I can in the Black Friday sales and hope I can get my hands on at least the CPU so I 'know' the motherboard and everything else is working or should I hold off any try and buy it all together?

    Someone must still be buying shi,,,,,stuff, cuz Maersk shipping are set to make about 6 billion Dkkr moving that stuff around the world.

    It will probably be 2022 before i get around to upgrade what i assume will be the whole PC again, maybe aside for my 850 W PSU and case + keyboard + mouse
    Even if nice new stuff come out next year, cuz upgrading a whole PC on a Danish pension take some penny flipping.

    Of course people are buying it - but it's not being made as fast or packed as fast etc. And then people are now waiting for the next best thing and it launches and the limited stock is gone in an instant
