    The Asus card in that list is liquid cooled TBF, their air cooled option should be cheaper.

    "Unfortunately, we do not have stock of this item on launch day."

    Did they ever have stock?

    This is just sad honestly. I was looking to do a new build in order to better run Cyberpunk as currently my system only meet minimum requirements. I may still upgrade, but to whatever is actually in stock and even then it still seems relatively price inflated due to the circumstances.

    Yeah I hate it when people mis use the term 'paper launch' as they have been, for for the AIB cards this IS a paper launch, you can't physically buy them at all!

    Yeah, I wanted an AMD card as I like the software suite and how the overclocking works in driver but this makes me consider nvidia as an actual option which is remarkable seeing as I despise their anti consumer tactics

    No - the reason you get the flak and negative reviews is not the lack of stock that's coming in - all vendors are struggling and they havent been hit like you have.

    It's the fact you have no transparancy - seemingly make little to no effort in updating people on a regular basis - totally ignore the waves upon waves or requests for updates - and then post crap like this just trying to shift blame elsewhere for terrible customer service

    If you're talking about same one as me... They got left out of initial AMD cards and seemingly all AIB allocations to.

    with no cards on the market, cyberpunk can safely launch in 2021-2022 :)

    Not that nVidia did great themselves but is anyone really that surprised by this from AMD? A number of factors have made it more difficult but bodged launches is what they do :p....

    Just noticed 5700XT on a competitor site sell nearly ten units in the last 30 mins, people are obviously getting sick of the 6800 launch. Bet they sell all of them in the next 10 minutes

    Haha, yes I'm fully aware but when you consider the fact that you may have potentially beat scalpers - it felt mildly refreshing.

    Its also outside mine.
    After last week this was expected.
    Within 500-600 (6800xt performance) i might have bitten it was what I was hoping for in August. All these rumours and excitement over the next gen.

    Not at these prices.

    Unless prices of all gpus come down in 2021 its confirmation im out of the pc gaming space. If this was price going forward, I might stick around. But next upgrade could be looking at 4 digit costs for a mid range gpu.

    Im not even sure I will get an xbox. I don't game half as much as I used to. Its another reason North of 500 for a gpu is too much. I don't game enough

    I saw a competitor have the ASUS ROG for pre order, when i put it in basket it said "10 due in 36-46 days" and the scheduled date was Dec 31st, how it's that long I don't know

    If you were looking at the site I think, you might not be in receipt of the card til 31st December.

    I called the dafty prices this morning on here and wasn't believed by many. Im sorry its the case, but it always was going to be the case and the AMD cards are just not worth £800-£1000 no matter what £10 heat pipe you strap to it.

    I dont even want to think about the cost of future generations frankly. First time I will say this but we need intel to enter the gpu market with a decent product to shake up the duopoly that AMD and Nvidia are developing between themselves. Obviously we dont know what the margins on these cards are for AMD but tech is meant to get cheaper over time as it becomes easier to produce not more and more expensive.
