    Not a 6800 but it was a 2 month wait for my 3080 gaming trio (still priced at 1469 now)

    Yea that got me too,
    the 360 rad is soley for the core too which i thought would be a mistake but according to the review the memory and VRM's on this are better than the Asus LC so good on em.

    Loved the original Toxic cards.

    Hi Maco88
    I ordered one from them. Still waiting for the card ordered on the 7-1-21. I am a little worried as they have removed the pre order from their site.

    Not too concerned about them removing the pre-orders, as prices have shifted quite considerably in the past month, so they maybe in the process of re-adjusting them or perhaps they have enough orders at that price & want to complete that shipment first.. WTF knows... they could easily turn around and just say they can't fulfill the orders and offer a refund, but you'd think by now, someone in HN would know whats happening and when they are expecting deliveries from the supplier??

    Soo... I guess the $1049 Reference 6800XT's are never going to happen?

    I doubt it now RAM prices are up and there’s a mass industrial shortage of ICs and electrical components. When cards are in good supply I expect RRPs to go up which is why I jumped in at a sub $1400AIB card.

    If you've already bought it they have to honor it.

    Not in this market. Unless you have pre ordered and prepaid.
    Crazy times. TBH though, theres lots of shortages of lots of products.

    We may even be seeing a break down in economics. Too much printed money and not enough production.

    I've got a $1269 Sapphire NITRO+ Radeon RX 6800 XT reserved with them. It's not a great price, but it's about as good as it gets right now.

    Feeling I got a good deal for an XFX Merc Black @ Ref RRP now.

    Still expensive though.

    Pulled the trigger on an XFX Merc 6800 XT last night at $1450 delivered, several hundred more than i wanted to spend but i gather that's going to be the going price for months to come unless you're super lucky.

    As long as cryptocurrencies are high and GPU's can mine them, then the current drought will continue.
