Whilst I'm still on the ancient R9 290, my will to upgrade to a 6800 XT left me after checking local stores and still not seeing any stock. I heard some interesting rumours about the 7800 (?) though so I figured I might as well wait out another year. My backlog is long enough for several years anyway. Still, is there some ETA?
Current generation of Radeons when?ID: hidbt4n
Would you look at that, all of the words in your comment are in alphabetical order.
I have checked 326,629,932 comments, and only 72,342 of them were in alphabetical order.ID: hidk9dy
How is “Current” in alphabetical order? Or “of”?ID: hidokto
Around end of 2022 is currently estimated. Sauce is moore's law is deadID: hidp6gj
I look forward to taking your $10 🙂ID: hif54xl
I got this joke!
Hello. With a 290 go to the guro 3d fóruns and you have the updated drivers there. Still a good card for 1080p and with fsr it will hold a bit more.
I got lucky and got a 6800xt at MSRP , I don't think next gen will be a good price market is crazy .
Good luckID: hig20mo
What guarantees are there that those drivers don't contain malware? I've never seen anything on guru3d that's open source. How do people trust anything that's there when it can't be audited? Genuinely curious.
Current rumours suggest the mid-range cards based on the monolithic Navi33 die to launch Q4 2022, and the high-end cards based on MCM Navi31/32 to launch Q1 23.
The rumoured performance targets are 6900XT perf on Navi33 cards, with a 128b memory bus, and more than double that on top Navi31 with a 256b bus.ID: hif9kso
Doesn't align with AMD's patents which show 96bit per chiplet.... 96bit per chiplet may also allow more economical memory design 288 or 384bit 18GB for instance.. instead of having to hop up to 24 or 32gb.ID: hifervh
Patents don't have to be referring to concrete products. Anyway, the usual leakers pretty much all agree on the 128b and 256b interfaces.
dunno but mid-late next year, depends on the silicon situation and if Taiwan is still Taiwan and not China.ID: hiczhqo

A scary thoughtID: hidnj0x
Why do you think the big tech players of the world want TSMC to build fabs outside of Taiwan, they know full well the rest of the world cannot stop China from taking that Island by force without starting WWIII.
The truth is, China wont win WWIII but the impact is going to be massive as they wont go down without making sure the western world is in ruins first, why do you think they have been developing Supersonic Nukes. Hint its not for defence or as a deterrent, its as a final solution.
Im honestly worried that if TSMC decides to stay put and shit does go down the world is going to lose a lot of technical knowledge and ability.
q3/q4 2022 for the high end, q1/q2 for the mid range and low end (6nm refresh of the 6700xt and lower)
Next generation of MSRP when?ID: hiddkr7
RX 7600 XT MSRP $499
RX 7700 XT MSRP $699
RX 7800 XT MSRP $999
RX 7900 XT MSRP $1499
I pulled these just out of thin air observing trends. If GPU Crypto isn't irrelevant by then (highly likely it wont be), you can forget these MSRPs.ID: hiden85
why won't gpu cryptomining be relevant?ID: hidex48
I was joking, I meant when are we getting cards at MSRP price or close to it.ID: hiczk1o
Next gen MSRP is just 200% more than current gen MSRP. Totally achievable for cards to get back to next gen MSRP! /s :'(
The 290 was $399 when it was released, which makes its direct replacement in 2021 the 6600 XT. From what I've seen this card is actually in stock.
I wonder why starting your entry tier at 290 prices would put people off buying it...
just don't get your hopes up for grabbing a 7000 series on launch, we probably will not see market returning to norm before 2024/2025.ID: hid7kkc
Cries in igpuID: hide06m
Yeah pretty much 2024/2025 at this rate.
Undervolt your cards, turn down some of those stupid placebo "Ultra" settings and look after your current card well with regular dust cleaning and watching your temps if you are close to a re-paste of the core. That is the mantra for the near term future.ID: hidww0e
Launch has been the best time to get most of the current cards.
I'd just go to the amd queue every week a get a current gen 6800 or 6800xt (rest of the lineup has bad MSRP for the performance)
I would not bet on next gen being cheap or available, get what you can when you can, or just keep trucking on with your current card
what makes you think they will be at msrp? mining isn't anywhere by the looks of it. also supply is low
I wouldn't expect anything till like 2023
You're not suffering all that much with a R9 290 though.
It's close to a 1080p60 card if you tweak a few things here and there in most games.ID: hifn71c
According to TechPowerup's GPU Database, the R9 290 is only 5% behind the RX 570. Which I managed to get before the Chipocalypse, and is serving me well.
(The RX 570, that's the card I'm currently using.)
The Chip Shortage is an issue caused by many industries. There's no magical "fix" button that throws a bag of money on a industry and fixes it. It's not only about chip production. The raw materials are also lacking, as well as energy and the climate(Taiwan droughts forced TSMC to reduce production), political instability, an economical backflip after the pandemic, and many more issues. Assuming nothing goes wrong, you're looking at the best case scenario by Q4 2022-Q1 2023. If anything goes wrong within that time, good luck. It's about to get worse.
Edit: Demand is also insane as everyone is working from home and people wanna mine.
Local MC had plenty of 6900 cardsID: hie8hj0
lol at $1699. total joke. Just buy from a scalper to feed someones family instead of supporting retail price hikes. The scalper market hikes are WAY different than retailers cranking up prices at will. The retailers determine what "normal" people expect to pay, the normies are all that matter for next gen's pricing models.ID: hiego4c
No thanks. They are taking advantage of people, just like the retailers. The retailers are gonna "feed someone's family" too. If people are struggling for money to feed their family it's a fair bet they aren't buying 800-1500 gpus.
Just wait for a deal. Just saw someone selling a 3080ti on a different site for 900 bucks. It's not an MSRP sale but a far cry from 1500+, which is what scalpers list them for on eBay.ID: hiek8wn
I think it's the other way round - scalpers drive the prices up then distributors and retailers get tired of scalpers making all the money and hike their own prices to match.
End of this year...
7700XT looks like a cool number, Ill wait for it
How the fuck would I know?
The 7000 series should see AMD taking the crown back from Nvidia next year. AMD has some awesome things coming out in 2022. That time will also hopefully help to lessen the GPU shortage hopefully. I'd say hold out till next year if at all possible for your use case
Releasing and having adequate stock at MSRP is too different things. If the opportunity to get a 6800XT comes I don't know if waiting is a good answer. Shortages are here to stay and price increases too. Don't think performance will increase too much in the current power range. 400w cards could be the normal.
