While many buyers are waiting for their “Big Navi” graphics card to be delivered, the online retailer Proshop provides detailed insights into its delivery situation and the availability of the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800, as with the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090, 3080 and 3070 (Test) in reference and custom design.
Big Navi only in “homeopathic” doses
After Ampere and Zen 3, (potential) buyers fare no differently with AMD’s newest graphics card series, the Radeon RX 6800 series aka Big Navi. Regardless of whether reference or custom design, such as the Red Devil and Nitro + (test), the Radeon RX 6800 XT and 6800 with Navi-21 GPU based on the new RDNA-2 architecture are sold out and if so, then only Available in extremely small quantities and well above the manufacturer’s recommended retail price (RRP).
This picture is also reflected in the current situation at the Danish retailer Proshop, which again provided detailed information about its delivery situation:
Accordingly, the Proshop currently has 573 orders for the Radeon RX 6800 series, none of which it can handle. Only 22 graphics cards are currently being purchased and can then be delivered to customers. The retailer has ordered a total of 4,122 graphics cards from wholesale.
Viewed objectively, the situation with the Radeon RX 6800 series seems to be even more striking than with the GeForce RTX 3000 series. The retailer did not even receive the reference models from some manufacturers and Asus, Gigabyte and MSI have not even put a price tag on some of their models.
