[LTT] AMD has got to be kidding

Actually, at better product than the 3060Ti, for gaming, and mostly matches the 3070 in gaming. The things you listed are either wrong or of no relevance for a gaming card and it is not significantly more but hey, also, you get better Linux support in all purposes except production, which AMD made clear that this is a gaming card.

Oh well, notice they did not share the 1% and 0.1% figures, with 8GB of ram will be a real limit. If you want to use it for production, this is not for you but hey, all I saw was Anthony bashing AMD well praising NVidia, which is par for the course.

Did I miss something or was sam not even mentioned? It works on more CPUs and Intel supports it as well now I think.

Not worth mentioning because most people can't use it and it requires you to enable it manually

5 : Anonymous2021/03/17 17:53 ID: gr9es6s

lol same could be said about dlss, you have to enable it manually therfore it is not relevant.

Sell a worse product for almost the same - Radeon under Lisa Su.

Single digit market share on Steam in 5 years.

It's probably wafers that couldn't become 6800s, and due to the shortage, we get 6700

9 : Anonymous2021/03/17 15:07 ID: gr8sd7u

RX 6700 XT uses the Navi 22 die while the RX 6800/6800 XT and 6900 XT use the Navi 21 die.

It's up to AMD how many wafers are allocated to specific CPU/GPU/APU dies.

Wish on the new purchase agreements they add in that cards cannot be resold above MSRP online until the next generation of cards released so AMD and Nvidia can force EBay and Amazon to shut down scalpers, force product to be removed.

Any chance i can get my hands on one of them paper gpus? Im desperate 🙁

i wouldnt even call this competition. its pure stagnation. they are slotting their cards into a price bracket that will maximize profits. a part of me cant even blame them.

I just want an affordable upgrade to my RX 470, not hundreds of new and equally scarce products

20 : Anonymous2021/03/17 18:56 ID: gr9ndt0

this seems as bad as the 3060. If you have an older card like a vega or 9x0/10x0 series from nvidia and just want newer features its not a horrible choice. Have a friend who went from a 1060 to 3060 and is really happy with ray tracing and dlss.

21 : Anonymous2021/03/17 19:12 ID: gr9phg8

Every review I've seen of this card says something along the lines of "but this is just in the games we happen to test," which is weird because that's not something reviewers typically mention (because it seems like a tautology, I presume). Why are they all starting to say it now?

22 : Anonymous2021/03/17 19:14 ID: gr9pq2g

A lot of people seem to gloss over the MOST important fact, and it's not the pricing. Pricing can be adjusted whenever they feel like it.

The card isn't bad because it costs almost 100 usd more than the 360ti. It's bad because despite it being built on the more advanced 7nm tsmc node, it performs worse the the 3060ti which is using an inferior 8nm samsung silicon AND uses more power to boot.

The ampere architecture is nothing to scoff at.

23 : Anonymous2021/03/17 19:46 ID: gr9u1f3

Watched all reviews available and thought: Well, I would be disappointed, if I weren't disappointed already. Slower than the 3060 TI sometimes and more expensive. Oh boy rolleyes.

24 : Anonymous2021/03/17 19:50 ID: gr9ullq

6700XT is meant to compete with 3060Ti 6800 is meant to compete with 3070 6800XT is meant to compete with 3080 6900XT is meant to compete with 3090

How is this hard to understand? Sure AMD showed it against the 3070 in their charts but they also included the 3060Ti. Showing that it slots in between those two cards. I agree it's priced a little high but so it literally every other card from both Nvidia and AMD. The 3090 being priced over double the 3080 and giving 10% more performance? That's ok apparently!?

25 : Anonymous2021/03/17 19:52 ID: gr9uty0

What i dont get is where are people actually able to buy 3060 ti on MSRP - apart from perhaps UK or USA.

Europe as well as most of the world is completely nuked in regard to prices.

1100 euros for this card, 900 for 3060, 950~+ for 3060 ti in central europe

I’m just happy seeing something come from AMD so widely disliked right out of the gate

27 : Anonymous2021/03/17 20:35 ID: gra0lj9

Been looking for a founders 3090 since launch i wanted to pair it with my 5950x which took 3 months to get on special order but stocks seems to be getting better (well all but 5950x) I’m not going to pay $2000 or more for a gpu paying $1400 for a strix 2080ti was dumb enough. I think msrp for the 3080 or 6800xt is fine if you can ever get it.

They desperately need a dlss competitor asap. This isn't even a competition anymore until they have that.

I have a bit of never-ending upgrade fever, so I sympathize, but I am surprised how many people are still trying to buy a gpu. The problem is just conflating, people need to just walk away for 6 months if you have a decent gpu. Break the cycle.

32 : Anonymous2021/03/17 22:10 ID: gracubm

Fortunately I have a decent GPU... But I will not spend 600$ or more for a mid end GPU now. I will wait until price go back at 300$ or I will not buy. If people keep buying GPU (if not needed) the will keep price high. The problem are miners. But at one point if gamers can't buy GPUs they can't play last games and it will be a problem.

If Intel start to sell a decent GPU now only for gaming they will stole market from Nvidia and AMD that gain money from this situation.

33 : Anonymous2021/03/17 22:23 ID: graee79

Intel seems to be jumping into the game, their next gen CPU's has almost doubled in prices, you can get an i9 10900K for a similar price of the i7 11700K for example.

34 : Anonymous2021/03/17 23:58 ID: grapf9y

Even though it's overpriced at MSRP, if I can find it at that point I'm going to unironically buy this card because my brother recently went to 4k and wants to sell me his 1440p monitors for cheap and I can make up the difference by selling my Vega 64 after the fact.

Edit: anyone know when I should try to arrive at the Tustin MC to be in the running for a card? They’re estimating about 70 cards in stock, including AIBs. They open at 7am.

Oh look another GPU I will not get my hands on.

The 6700 XT is a shit product and shows that AMD is happy to cash in on desperate consumers. The same is true for Nvidia's 3060.

I can't believe I'm saying it, but please save us Intel.

I arleady listed my 3070 for $1500, if it sells Im waiting for next year until I buy new gpus for msrp, I would never spend that kind of money on a gpu so it doesnt make sense holding a gpu for that kind of money when I can sell it.

Well, $479 is only a bit more than I paid for my 5700XT AMD 50th ~20 months ago--$449. It's been a great card, btw. As well, the 6700XT has 4GBs more in GDDR6 onboard, and a much higher clock than my 5700XT.

Nah, I don't think AMD is kidding at all...;) (Where do these crazies come from?...;)) It's amazing to me--just remarkable--to watch people with nVidia prejudices gloss over or even fail to mention features like this! I can hit my 8GB limit (I run at 4k) in RDR2, easily, so please don't say, "You don't need more than 8GBs of VRAM," because you do if you game at 4k like I do.

I'll never forget Squeaky and pals actually insinuating that the great thing about nVidia's D3d ray tracing and DLSS 2.0 was that they didn't require developer participation and that you could turn them on and off at will in every game, while all of AMD's features--the ones they knew about, anyway--required dev participation and couldn't just be turned on and off at will in any game! Man, alive--I ran that back just to make sure I didn't misunderstand the insinuation. Squeaky permanently blew his credibility with me that day--er, what credibility I may have thought he had at one time. Pretty much, I simply don't care for his opinions at all as I find them often biased, incomplete, and sorely lacking in salient fact.

However, I will say that I think it's just too bad AMD crippled this with a 192-bit bus interface, imo. I will wait on a 6800XT, however.

Novideo shills are selling their brain for a RTX card so Papa Leatherjacket can buy a new mansion. Even an inferior GPU is getting overhyped and sold by too high prices and these shills party over it.

What a fucking bullshit they do lmao.

I bought a RX 5700 for $209.27 on 10/16/2019 directly from Newegg. Brand new just a sale.

The problem is your comparing MSRP when no one paid MSRP back 20 months ago. It's an apples to oranges comparison.

Another paper launch by amd which is a good thing since no one should buy this card.
