    Oh, oh, oh, will it be the availability of their GPUs in the shops and at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP)? That would be something BIG!

    After the big 3D stacked cache surprise at Computex, I can't see them having anything really BIG to surprise us with.

    Maybe their AI-upscaler? Everyone has to have a fancy upscaler so that in a few years people can buy 8K TVs and run them at 1440P AI-upscaled to 8K which might look better than over-blurred native 4K...

    Radeon RX 6900 Ti, perhaps?

    That, or someone in their marketing department confused their work account with their pron account and mis-posted....

    Honestly that video just looks like a 'short gpu' so basically big Navi but on shorter/smaller boards imo.

    From a leak last year AMD is working on hardware accelerated super sampling only that cost of extra silicon is a cost to consumers. So the current FSR on native pipeline is simply an introduction.

    It is actually much easier to get an AMD card vs NVIDIA, so yes.

    Well, just checked three online PC parts retailers (OCUK, Ebuyer and SCAN) 'AGAIN', and very few are available, and none are at the MSRP. So I've no idea where you are buying them from?

    I'd really like to see something to fill the shoes of the Radeon VII or Radeon Pro VII: something for the double precision compute in a workstation crowd. Fingers crossed!

    I suspect you missed the "at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price" bit.

    Actually, Nvidia direct do sometimes have a few FE available while AMD since the B-word-which-should-not-mentioned-on-Hexus no longer deal directly with UK customers. Not that they made reference cards so no idea if in other countries they are available. I'm not in the market for cards in the price range even at RRP so haven't looked.

    Which in the UK gets directed to Scan, who will only let you buy one card. So if you would actually like to build a 3090 FE SLI rig, you're out of luck since Feb 2021. Which is disappointing.

    Sorry, I had meant to say they didn't make many reference cards at least compared to Nvidia.
    Both of them seem reluctant to sell too many directly with lots of excuses: too expensive to make, not wanting to alienate OEMs, etc.
    Hard to know as actual sales figures are impossible to find anywhere.
