Nice to see such a competitive product, not quite going to cancel 3080 but depending on reviews I might order 6800 XT alongside and keep the card which arrives first.

Looking like the 6800XT for me unless the price conversion sucks, but tbh the prices were a little bit off from my expectations but not massively, but the 6800XT seems to be the best pick of the 3 for me, it was at least spot on with what i expected.

6800xt was exactly where I expected really.

6800 is more. However, the 6800 has 16gb so is much more viable as a 4k card especially going forward. So the price doesn't really surprise me. It's basically slightly faster than the 3070 and has double the VRAM. However, that is what holds the 3070 back at 4k already, so I would rather pay a little more and feel safer when the next gen console drivel drops.

6900XT sharing the 300W TDP with 6800 XT while rocking the same clock speeds raises questions about binning and as such, availability. Though I suspect AMD has followed 3000 series launch closely and wouldn't want to find themselves in a similar PR catastrophe.

No 6700 cards, but the leaks with the 6700's matched these specs for the other cards exactly!

All depends on how these prices convert to £'s but they are in the right ball park only real one of the three i feel is slightly more than i expect is the 6900XT but in fairness it is at least 500 cheaper than the 3090 lol

With cyberpunk being put back a few weeks longer it gives me some extra time to save for the 6800XT it's by far the best priced of the three cards, but the 3070 has been very much been slapped about a bit now 6800 might only be £50 more but for 8gb more ram

oh and they barely spoke of it but some kind of dlss option but the fact they didn't go into details means it could be a ways off from being implemented.

The price of the 6800 is too damn high! I can see Nvidia responding with a 3070Ti for $550 and completely nullifying what could be Big Navi's best value card. I know the 6800 will have more VRAM, but if i were in the market for a GPU in the £500-600 category, AMD haven't brought anything to the table that Nvidia can't respond to with aplomb.

The 6900XT is a surprise. $1000 is a lot, but I guess it's cheaper than the 3090. Again, it leaves room for Nvidia to come out with a 12GB 3080Ti for $850 that offers better value for money. Don't know why AMD are leaving Nvidia room to do that, but whatever; I'm sure they have their reasons.

The 6800XT is their best card in my opinion. Cheaper than a 3080, performs the same, more VRAM, lower power draw, probably better availability. Nice win there. If they can get a steady supply of $650-700 variants from themselves and AIB partners, they'll take a vast amount of sales from Nvidia. Even without upscaling it's a good card.

Speaking of which, they're working on upscaling technology, but I was disappointed to see it absent. DLSS 2 is a big seller for Nvidia. It's their biggest selling point in fact, and AMD didn't have a proper retort for it. Hopefully it'll come this year with driver updates.

Clock speeds are lower than expected slightly. But it doesn't matter; performance is where it should be and power draw looks to be reasonable.

Overall the biggest disappointment was the price of the 6800. I don't know what they're doing there. A lack of upscaling is not that big of a deal because we know it's coming. But pricing the 6800 so high is allowing Nvidia too much room to wiggle their way back into the heart's and mind's of consumers. I can see a lot of people who were waiting for RDNA2 before buying a 3070 now being happy to pull the trigger on one. AMD haven't really offered an apples-to-apples alternative, at least from what I can tell.

I'm pretty impressed by these. The 6900XT giving you basically 3090 performance but at $500 less?!?! That's pretty huge! The 6800XT being $50 cheaper than the 3080 but with the same performance is nice.

I'm not that big a fan on the $570 price of the 6800 though. I get that it's faster than a 3070 but I think if they'd priced it at $500 it would've sold faster than anything we've probably ever seen before.

I'm also very impressed with Dr. Lisa Su. She took over a company that was headed for ruin but she's turned it around and put it on top of not one but TWO fronts which were once ruled by companies with much bigger bank rolls. She needs to get into politics. I'd vote for her for president lol.

That said, I think I'll end up with a 3070 or 3080. I really like my G-Sync monitor and its only a year and half old so not ready to give up on that $500 investment. Also, I just like G-sync better. I had a Freesync monitor before this one and this one just seems smoother. I know that could be placebo or the result of a lot of other things but to my eyes at least right now I prefer G-sync.
