Let’s keep this nice and simple. If you tried to buy AMD’s flagship gaming card, the AMD Radeon 6900 XT, chances are you probably couldn’t. And even if you could, you probably shouldn’t.
It’s no secret that buying a new GPU — or console, or any piece of hot consumer tech — has been a nightmare this year. And if you’ve been eagerly awaiting something like an RTX 3080 — or any RTX card — then you might want to check back in, oh, probably March.
The AMD Radeon RX 6800 is not just a good GPU. It’s a genuine threat and competitor to Nvidia — if you don’t need ray tracing.
