dont know whats worse, Server stability or OCUK's price gouging, Not a single penny from me to this place.


Yup, this is why in general I stopped using OCUK years ago and try to buy elsewhere. I can't at all remember the last time OCUK was competitive on price.

I do wish AMD went around saying any retailers who price above the stated price from them doesn't get stock for the next launch. Retailers price gouging is a joke tbh but OCUK always did it and worse still it was always them that did it first and then other retailers adjust their prices upwards. As someone else said these cards were actually cheap, listed at £600-620 for the XT which is pretty decent pricing considering the US price for $650 when you factor in tax.

The issue is AMD doesn't get a penny of the extra £80 mark up only OCUK do.

Fair play, that's exactly what i did. Did not even bother checking anywhere else as i knew the websites would go down.
Any idea if this means a confirmed order? They've taken my payment and sent an order number but it only says "submitted". I see you cant buy them now.

Managed to get 1 of each. Too scared to cancel one though until I see them ship, just in case retailer decides to cancel the other one instead, I guess I'll wait and see.

RT performance actually is fine outside of the path-traced examples like Minecraft. Even in Control I see the 6800 = 3070 with DXR on @ 1080p which is the only resolution where you'll see 60 fps anyway, and in newer titles it's clear there's lots of optimisation to get AMD back up, like in Dirt 5 where it actually pulls ahead of Ampere EVEN with DXR on.

It's freaking great!
Grats dude, you did well to get on of each. Direct from AMD?

Got a 6800XT direct from AMD DE.

Got it just in time before the site totally wigged out. 6800s were available for quite a while.

Was trying to check out with a 5600X (they put up a few units of each 5xxx after the GPUs were gone), but by that time the site was borked. Went through Paypal about 6 or 7 times, then pressed checkout, only for it to wig out on Captcha each time.

What an absolute shower of s..t. Price Gouging, Unusable website. original tweet didn't even have the correct links -- by the time you'd got through the ddos protection and refreshed a few times to go and check the tweet again to see they had updated it with the ACTUAL links it's too late.

managed to order the sapphire 6800 xt at 14.43 just had confirmation email through has anyone else got lucky? that was a tedious task!

Managed to get one at 14:36, money was taken and a confirmation email received. So I guess we are on the waiting list. I just hope they haven't taken a ridiculous amount of pre-orders like they did for the Nvidia series.

Cheers! Nah, local retailer in the spooky Eastern half of the continent. :)

I'm curious to see performance in older titles at 5K. I'm actually anticipating that even more than newer games tbh, so the extra vram & great rasterization performance should help.

C'mon The Surge 5K 60 :D
