    If this came in at ~£399 I'd maybe buy it. But with things as they are, it'll likely be £600 kekeke

    399 and similar to a 3070 would be about right for me, if its not as good as a 3070 though, given the extras you get with a rtx vs a rx, i think the 3070 will still be my first choice if i can get one at or at least near rrp

    You're asking too much - if it was 3070 level they wouldn't undercut by 100 given demand for it.

    This is more of a 3060 competitor I think.

    I mean the 5700XT was a competitor for the 2070... we all thoroughly expect the 6700XT to beat the 3060 in all but RT. Only time will tell, but I’d be surprised if the result wasn’t that.

    the 3090 has also exploded in price, the greed of Nvidia know no end... really hope Intel get in on it all as well for real so a tripod of competetion.

    I'll start caring about hardware announcements again when we hit a point where it's possible to buy a GPU for MSRP without divine intervation.

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT logo shared by tech editor

    I am honestly fedup - I really would like a new GPU,but I am not the type who would generally spend more than £300 on one. I would love to be able to afford £400~£500 on a GPU,but unless I cut back on other things I enjoy its not going to happen. The issue is looking around at a lot of mates,they are in the same boat,and many have decided its easier to eventually get a console,instead of spending loads upgrading a PC.

    It has? Still the exact same price here as it was at launch in the UK. So what are you basing this on?

    Or they've resorted to spending an entire month's salary on a single component within their PC
    Three of my guys bought new GPUs in January. Luckily they were all at MSRP, but one got an RX6900XT and the other two both got RTX3090's.

    The only saving grace is they sold their old GPUs for more than they bought them for 3 years ago :O

    I don't know anyone who would spend so much on a single part for gaming,especially with all the uncertainty around. I could have technically spent over £500 on a GPU in the last year,but there are other things I would rather spend my money on. The problem is when the current GPU becomes too slow,or more importantly if there is any hardware issue I see virtually nothing half decent is available new for under £400. If this continues like this,longterm its going to start affecting the gaming market more and more. Remember,if you go by Lowspecgamer,etc £500 here can feel like £1000 in a lower income country.

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-fe....517280.0.html

    AMD managed to set new records in Q4 2020 despite challenges posed by the pandemic and the US-China trade war. However, the ongoing lean period of availability of CPUs and GPUs (and inflated pricing as a consequence) may continue until the end of 1H 2021.

    Responding to an investor query, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su said, "overall demand exceeded planning" and CPU/GPU shortages will primarily impact gaming hardware and the low-end of the PC market. Gaming products impacted include both consoles and gaming CPUs and GPUs. This will continue until production resumes at full capacity, which may take up to 2H 2021. Dr. Su felt that the higher-margin products are likely to be more readily available at retail.

    As per information gained by Tom's Hardware, AMD's inventory has increased to US$1.4 billion in unsold goods. This inventory not only includes fully ready chips but also those in various stages of production and packaging. So, while AMD's increased wafer capacity at TSMC results in more chips, packaging shortages apparently still seem to affect the supply chain.

    Ultimately, consoles such as the Sony PlayStation 5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X and Series S are likely to be the most affected of all until 2H 2021. Whatever little stocks are being made available right now tend to be quickly lapped-up by scalpers, who sell them for a high mark-up on sites like eBay.

    The situation does not currently look good for gaming CPUs and GPUs such as the new Ryzen 5000 processors, Radeon RX 6000 series, or NVIDIA's Ampere RTX 30 series either. Adding to the supply woes is the fact that global GDDR6 shortage is expected to continue well into February and may be even beyond thus affecting all NVIDIA and AMD GPUs that use this memory standard.
    The thing is this all affects AMD even more as they have TSMC being a limiting factor. Nvidia and Intel are more likely to be able to supply CPU/GPUs in volume IMHO - I suspect this is why my next GPU is most likely to be Nvidia.

    Its almost like history repeating itself - during the heady days of the Athlon 64,AMD again hit fab capacity limits and this is how Intel used its greater fab volumes,to force OEMs to use their products.

    This is more of a 3060 competitor I think.
    I don't think he's asking for too much at all.
    In fact, 6700xt being on par or better than 3070 sounds about right.

    6700 (non XT version) will probably be on par with 3060/3060ti.

    399 SRP, 699 retail.

    No way it's better than 3070. The 6800 is about 8% faster than the 3070 and has 50% more cores than the 6700xt will have.
