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...;)

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.

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.

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.
What do you do with all those cores.

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.

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.
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..

The solution is obvious. More freebies.
That's a peerless level of deductive reasoning.
