    Not so much an abundance but a more understood purchase process I think. Jumping on a PLE preorder now is at least SOME certainty, the card will eventually come, and you will pay a good price. I think 3080s are popping up in Aus at a rate where, if you spend a while checking sites and stuff, you will get one if you want to pay 1700+. If a 6800XT is going to cost $1500 with the nail-biting-f5-smashing-1-AM sanity tax I think its quite reasonable to pay up the $1700 for a slightly superior product (unless you really need VRAM or will save on PSU costs). This of course doesn't apply to those who don't want to pay more than "RRP-ish."

    This is stupid, I shouldn't announce it because more ppl prob go for it but 6900xt $999usd around $1600 aud if aib 6800xt $1500 makes more sense to get a 6900xt for the stuff you cant just bolt on like a cooler

    6800XT reference was damn juicy at the price. I tried to get one, we all did. But that horse has bolted.
    If those AIB prices are correct i am damn happy i ended up going 3080 route.

    Well I guess if we want good performance and decent price the only thing to do now is hold out for Intel's GPU release, who's with me boys

    Yep. When there were $1139 EVGA 3080's or whatever.. you've got to be joking.
