    they are at more affordable prices and the play up to the Nvidia numbers in general, I don't see why Nvidia think their cards is 20-25% as expensive, as it is in some of the cases.

    As for availability, it will come when the market mature more and more and more items is in circulation, thing is, AMD can cut or keep their prices, and still earn bunches on it and let alone they got a huge foot in, on most of the entire market, Nvidia only got a niche in comparison.

    Would be great if you could actually get one at that price, unfortunately, we live in 2021 which is starting to feel more like 1980s Soviet Russia where you had to wait in line for oranges.

    Re: Gigabyte Radeon RX 6700 XT range registered with the EEC

    Hmm, need some advice guys...

    Should I switch to not being able to buy one of these cards, or continue not being able to buy a 3060 Ti / 3070?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'd suggest you wait until stock stabilizes and choose then.
    Depends on what you also use the GPU's.
    For gaming, either AMD or NV will be fine... RTX is not a big deal for me in games as the differences are fairly minor and not something one notices during gameplay.

    Other than that, if you do content creation... it will depend on which software you use.
    Most rendering software (unfortunately) use NV Optix/CUDA and therefore won't work on AMD gpu's... but you're not totally at a loss there because AMD DOES have AMD Radeon Pro renderer though for most rendering software.

    In everything else (or most of everything else), you can stick to OpenCL as support for it is still fairly ok.

    AMD did decide to stop supporting OpenCL mostly and focus on D3D12 and Vulkan instead... but adoption of these might take devs time to implement - but I do content creation and I manage with an AMD gpu (vega 56) just fine.

    deksman2, thanks for the very thoughtful reply, but I must confess I was just being sarcastic and referring to the hopeless stock sitaution... sorry!

    That depends... but it is neither AMD's or TSMC's issue.
    https://www.sammobile.com/news/amd-might-not-outsource-gpu-apu-production-samsung/

    "AMD is indeed struggling with supply, reason why some industry observers were speculating that the company will turn to Samsung for help, but market watchers cited by IT Home now claim that the reason for this shortage doesn’t lie with TSMC’s inability to keep up with demand, but rather with an insufficient supply of ABF substrates."

    AMD fights for openCL and will always do. I have always used OpenCL because its cross-platform and MOST software out there have openCL support. From video convertors to Autodesk use openCL and fight for it.
