    Good grief. Just tried to get one, saw them briefly in stock then gone before I could go from basket to checkout! I was not expecting the stock situation to be as bad as NVidia's, but hey-ho.

    It's nice to see AMD have more competitive products in the GPU market. It is a shame that ray tracing performance isn't as good. Still for those who care more about performance in general and want enough memory to last longer, they seem to be good options.

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800

    Looking good to see AMD back in the top end of the table (even on top with some games). Competition has returned. Even Nvidia fans need to thank AMD as the 3080 would have been £1500 without it.

    My Vega56 can stay a bit longer, keep me warm this winter.

    Scan seem to be saying they aren't doing a pre-order backlog like they've done the AMD 5000 CPUs and Nvidia 30xx series, instead they will be selling stock as and when it comes in.

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800

    As a 1440p gamer looking at where to go from a 2080, these are quite underwhelming cards in all honesty. I don't fancy jumping to 4K as I think with all these next gen games around the corner you will run out of mileage very quickly with ray tracing on, even with a 3080. So it seems that if the 20GB 3080TI rumours are true, that will be my next card.

    Which UK retailers were there actually selling them? Could only find them listed on scan. Almost managed to grab one before realising the £579.99 price was for an RX6800 and not the XT.

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800

    If all was equal, and all available, it'd be a 3080 today, absolutely no doubt. The ray tracing and the drivers put it over the top. And ray tracing looked a bit pap until Watch Dogs shown what it can really look like, and that for me has turned it into something to consider.

    But with nvidia being who they are, and availability, scalping, and worries of problems with AIB nvidia cards, I'd rather get a solid 6800 now for 500 quid and get a 4K ray tracing card in 3 gens down the line.

    Seems a bit weird to say that they'll run out of mileage considering that consoles will be using the same architecture but less powerful. However if raytracing performance is important to you, then nvidia will probably be the safer bet once higher memory models come unless they take too long.

    I also think it is a lineup with AMD, if they do the same ways with GPU as CPU... then would keep on spitting out better and better kind of thing, this is also why it is interesting, because it means that either Nvidia has to keep it going themself, or end being swallowed the same way as AMD is doing with Intel.

    It really looks interesting and maybe actually a golden age of really nice GFX cards to reasonable money, as in how it was in the very beginning with eg. Voodoo II and so on.

    Re: AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and Radeon RX 6800

    Look like things are as i expected, and i did not expect RT to be on par with 30xx ray tracing, that would have been a miracle.
    But if AMD can progress like Nvidia have from 20xx ray tracing to 30xx with RDNA3 then things will be fine in that regard by then, and if AMD can step up like they have done from 5700XT to 6800XT in little over a year, then things would be very exiting indeed.

    First however i must abandon my 1080 screen, though it is "new" and nothing is wrong with it, but my M8 are on a little 24" so he would love my screen, so its not going to E-waste at least.

    So on the basis I managed to get an order in and a confirmation e-mail does that mean I'm likely to get a 6800 (non-XT, didn't bother trying to get an XT variant...)?

    To be expected. Happening with everything tech this year. Heck even new released music synths are being scalped
