    I actually got the pre-order into cart and was tempted but thought Na, surprisingly I think pccasegear had the best card at the best price $1299. Was more a test run for the (8th) 9th au time for me

    6900xt reference design so hopefully amd announces price so they can't mc r@p3

    I think the 8 more Cu and 32 more texture units will make a difference

    well they said 6900XT will have limited stock availability compared to 6800XT, considering they cannot sell 0.5 of a card the available stock will be 0 ?

    Maybe they will sell you an ATI Radeon HD 3450 for $2000 and say that it's half of a 6900XT

    Considering it's a limited edition card, I reckon it's actually a very compelling price, but the ASUS tuf et al at 1600, is just an absolute rip off!

    Gotta wait for Sapphire cards etc at a retailer that won't rip you off.

    Do we know if reference cards will ever be available again, after the initial sale? I'm pretty sure they would fit and work better with small form factor cases... which would be my use case.

    It has been said that they are still going to make them. But when and how many and where they will be sold... who knows.

    Bit optimistic there, looks like we'll be getting ripped off no matter the brand or retailer. I'm waiting on Sapphire as well, betting they'll be $1300 - $1600 though.

    Because he's banging Grimes, or has a lot of money?

    Besides, He's probably changing nappies right now. Something I am not . I'll call that a win for me.

    That's a bit better than the Strix etc but still out of my price range.

    The Red Devil really just needs to be $1300 and not as a limited edition card... if they have a RD 6900XT next year, that could be a winner.

    I heard that as well. Pulse will probably be the same even though it's meant to be the cheaper card.
