    too little too late.
    should of announced it sooner, i might of been interested in moving to AMD but as they had nothing but expensive cards announce I've stayed with Nvidia and got a 3060 ti
    they could of announced it last year and given the release date of march this year

    I bet the card has been ready for a while but I simply don't think they can make enough chips for a real release. The chip for this is probably last in a list behind consoles, cpu's and higher end gpu's. Chances are it'll be the summer before these are readily available.

    A 12GB 6700* vs 12GB 3060* is probably the biggest battle between the two sides this generation. Supply is going to be crucial.

    I really want one of these cards but they’re launching far too late. How can they expect to sell when in 3 months everyone will have then nvidia offering?

    I’d love to know the reasoning for this... I’ve heard rumours of AMD refocusing on console supply. Makes sense as a business I suppose. Not good for us though.

    What Nvidia offering? You can't buy a 12GB competitor - the 3060 Ultra isn't out yet.

    Definitely the console supply.

    I think they also have an understanding that while the 6xxx series are more competitive than previous series, they're not as competitive as they need to be, so they're better off focusing their efforts on putting out the console chips where that's not an issue and then putting more money into R&D for RX 7xxx to get the raytracing performance at a more competitive level and introduce chiplet GPUs to get costs down.

    From talking to people I hear it's much simpler than anybody thinks...
    There are NO chips to go around because they are being made as fast as they can and still woefully short of fulfilling demand at 7nm. The sheer amount of chips being requested at 7nm is incredible. Shortages will last for years. About the only good reason to go with Samsung for NV

    The question is, is this going to be another paper launch? It should be, but the way things are, it can't be ruled out.

    I feel AMD have done themselves much more harm than good these last few months. This was a golden opportunity, not only did they squander it, they've done themselves harm in the process.

    They can't squander it there are no chips or spare capacity. They can't make enough chips yet according to some reports have more market share than Intel in the CPU market...
    It's really a no win thing. All of their eggs came together to be launched in a timeframe that was never going to work with a global pandemic

    Re: Report: AMD Radeon RX 6700/XT will arrive at end of March

    Can I just ask... why is everyone so upset about them not being available? The only reason is hype, surely? If you're desperate for a new GPU, well the prices of the last gen are sure to drop hard shortly. And they aren't bad cards. Otherwise, is your old GPU that bad? Is it suddenly unable to play games just as well as it did yesterday?

    It feels as though people have bought in fully to the "you don't just want this, you NEEEED it and your old card is so... old" marketing. They have got very good at it. They have stoked up demand and then released limited supply, so they are in control of pricing and what card you buy. Remember, even big name companies have been caught scalping when furiously denouncing it.

    The world hasn't changed, games haven't changed. The availability will improve and prices will settle.

    "AMD don't have it, I'm buying Nvidia" - okay, but you'll pay a healthy premium, and you could just sit back and wait for a few months. Your old card will still work just fine. Watch the chaos, the scrabbling and when it all ends buy the card you want when YOU have the power over the companies. At the moment, demand exceeds supply and you have to get what you can get at the price you can get it.

    In a few months, the companies will have to earn your custom, rather than having people literally begging them for their product. That makes for far better value and you can choose exactly what you want or need.

    This is expected. They're selling all their lower CU parts to Sony and Microsoft

    Well, I doubt it makes sense as a business as consoles are by far the least profitable thing AMD could do with those scares TSMC wafers. The wafer price/mm order must be something like this:
    1. server CPUs,
    2. desktop CPUs,
    3. laptop CPUs,
    4. distantly followed by GPUs
    5. with console chips bringing up the even more distant rear.

    It just seems that Microsoft and Sony have a very good deal where they get priority.

    Bit simplistic but about right. Nobody is getting the amount of chips/wafers they want. I imagine supply will ease in about 2022 (bearing in mind we've just entered another lockdown and the warnings are poor for the rest of this year)

    True - I was thinking more of any new GPU on Nvidia's side below the 6800/3070 bracket. Good point though

    For a few days proshop had a AMD 6900 listed ( of course not in stock ). though at a price well above any 6900XT card.

    https://www.proshop.dk/Grafikkort/Sa...ikkort/2914065

    I just hope bitcoin have tanked of preferably died when i am in the market for a new GFX card
