I don’t care about GPUs anymore. I managed to get an 6900 XT at MSRP in 2021 but also realized it’s about time to find new hobbies. My interest in gaming has dropped significantly during the last two years, the 6900 XT will be my first and last GPU I paid 1000 Euros for.

Just bought a 6900 XT--wife gets the 6700 XT--for MSRP from the AMD store on Saturday, 4/30. I know, I know...crazy, but I really wanted this thing since I could never get a 6800XT and waited more than a year fruitlessly. When they let me into the queue last Thursday, I was amazed--even the "more than an hour's wait" got me in, but there were only reference 6700 XTs and 6900 XTs available. So I bailed out to give it another couple of days thought since the AMD store has them available continuously, now--at least the 6900 XTs. Stupidity prevailed, however, and I pushed the buy button--so we'll see in a day or so whether I should book an appointment with Biden's psychiatrist...;)

Congrats! Despite being on the market for about 1 1/2 years that 6900XT has a lot of life in it and you’ll love it. FSR 2 is coming in a couple of months and future versions of it will certainly extend the lifetime of current cards further. I’ve had zero problems with my 6900XT (reference model) for 14 months and AMD has significantly improved performance in this time, we’re now closer than ever to an RTX 3090.

No Denuvo for me, thanks. 60 bucks saved. And no, I won‘t get this once Denuvo is gone.

Crazy...just crazy. Was on the AMD-store queue this morning (to buy an RX-6800XT), and I was placed in line at an hour's wait time...then exactly 11 minutes later, it was over--no more GPUs AMD said. I figure they must have had at least three GPUs to sell this morning...!...;) I don't see the queue as being worthwhile--just not enough stock. No problem on the CPU side, though.

Back in February i was lucky enough to get a 6900 XT during a drop here in Europe. The 6800s were always sold out in an instant, the pricier 6900s lasted a bit longer. The new queue system is now a complete waste of time for a regular “real” customer as bots have again taken over the purchase process for the most part. There is literally ZERO chance for a human being to win one of these cards.

Aside from the possible memory leak, rebinding keys has issues with the numberpad, because of course it does. Numberpad 0 is by default the game menu(??) but it ALSO maps to ESC, so if you remap Num0, you have also deleted ESC. I usually use the numberpad in games, with num 0 as reload, but now I just open the menu sometimes by mistake. I expect that'll get patched out, or at least decouple ESC from Num0, which is not listed in the keybind settings menu.

Totally destroys it for me as a Lefty. Sorry guys, you need to patch this for people like me, otherwise no buy. Period.

The Ryzen 5950X has been in stock here in Europe for over 2 months now. Once availability was there its price dropped immediately to MSRP level which can be seen here on the Geizhals graph. I got mine derectly from AMD though, also at MSRP of course.
I'd buy one just so i could gaze at the CPU task manager.
What do you do with all those cores.
In addition to gaming I'm editing and rendering videos/movies. If necessary, all at the same time. Also, this CPU should last for quite a few years.

Control is an OUTSTANDING game.

I don't know anything about Genshin Impact, but Control by itself is an nearly unskippable free offer. I know there are the hard core anti-Epic folks that won't get it at Epic's store, but you all should play this game eventually.

I’m not anti Epic, I’m anti “exclusive”. And since I don’t have an Epic account this offer is perfectly skippable. Just sticking to my personal rules/values, no matter what.

Since this isn’t an EGS exclusive I might get it sooner. I’m not a fan of Ubi either, their store/service/customer support is complete garbage compared to Steam’s.

Epic Games store exclusive. Thats great because it means i’ll get the game on Steam for under $10 as soon as available. No buy until these conditions are met.

I preordered Odyssey but don't have the time to play it right now, just downloaded and gave it a quick shot yesterday. It seems to be running OK on my 6900 XT for a version 1.0. It can't maintain 60 fps at all times at 4k with maxed out settings though. So, I'm not surprised a 1080 Ti is struggling in VR. A 3090 however should be silky smooth, Frontier has some more optimization work to do.
I'm glad they didn't release all for platforms simultanously (hello CDPR!) and put the focus on PC first.

My 6900 XT has been rock solid since it had replaced my 1080 Ti. Despite doing a lot of tweaking I've not experienced a hard crash yet. The driver always manages to recover the card back to desktop. Crashes only happen if I go too far messing around- so that's MY fault. As I said, totally stable at standard and optimized clocks.

He certainly must have had a faulty card.

China is the world's major problem. I don't know how often that has to be said until gov'ts start really doing something about it.
As long as quite a few of our things are „made in China“ governments can’t do anything about it. In fact it’s already much too late. A significant majority of the planet's resources is in Chinese hands already. Deal with it as that’s not going to change.

I consider myself extremely lucky having managed to snatch a Radeon RX 6900 XT directly from AMD’s shop here in Europe. At € 989 this was by far the most expensive GPU I have bought ever. I might sell my 4 year old 1080 Ti and make 50-100 € profit. Crazy times...

Tesla got $1.5bn in environmental subsidies in 2020, funded by the taxpayer.
It turned around and spent $1.5bn on Bitcoin, which is mostly mined with electricity from coal.

Even more bad news, new 80$ flat tariff on GPUs going into effect.

After the almost doubling of prices post crypto craze, the bots, the scalpers, the new crypto crazy, the low and midrange are gonna eat the worst with that crazy tariff... THANK YOU MR.DRUMPF! You're a fucking lifesaver for "sticking it to the Chinese"!

And you just know this is gonna get reflected on Canadian prices too..

Considering each and every one of these GPUs was designed in the U S A...

Not for me. No Epic account, therefore no EGL and no freebies for me.

That's a peerless level of deductive reasoning.
Maybe. But with Epic there is no such thing as “free”. I’m certain of that.
