AMD Teases First Radeon RX 6000 Video Card Pictureby Ryan Smith on September 14, 2020 5:30 PM EST

In a very brief teaser, AMD this afternoon has released a picture of their first Radeon RX 6000 video card.
No further details about the card are given, but based on the sizable triple fan design and dual 8-pin PCIe power connectors, it stands to reason that we’re looking at one of AMD’s high-end card designs. Overall the design looks reminicant of the Radeon VII, which is not terribly surprising since that is the last high-end (high-powered) video card released by AMD.
Don’t be surprised if we see more teasers over the coming weeks, as AMD gears up for its October CPU and GPU presentations. AMD will be holding its “Next Generation Radeon Graphics” keynote on October 28th at noon Eastern.

Seriously though, who taught you that crap? At best it's only applicable to rhetoric; for sure it has absolutely no place in the discussion of facts. All honest truth-finding discussion involves qualifiers - "for a given", "assuming these factors", "to x level of confidence", etc. In this case they're being about as specific as anybody could be by saying they think there will be very little stock.
I swear, whoever's been teaching people all this high-school debate nonsense as if it somehow leads to greater knowledge needs a slap.
imaheadcase - Monday, September 14, 2020 - linkFound the AMD fanboy. Its not a paper launch, local best buy literally has a shipper full of them.
Just because its hard to get one just means demand is high, nothing to do with paper launch dummy.
Cooe - Monday, September 14, 2020 - linkThis is BS. Google "Ampere stock". Countless respected people are reporting from countless sources that initial supply is going to be CRAZY tight this fall. Like Radeon VII tight.
Gigaplex - Monday, September 14, 2020 - linkIt's not just high demand. Supply is low.
inighthawki - Monday, September 14, 2020 - linkAs someone who hasn't really followed supply rates on previous releases, is there actual evidence showing it's going to be considerably weaker than the launch of any other CPU/GPU? It's really not all that uncommon for new chips to be out of stock or at least selling for significantly higher than MSRP for a few months after launch.
whatthe123 - Monday, September 14, 2020 - linkThis is what happens every launch: people get overly excited, then start worrying that they won't get a card at launch, then start spreading rumors about poor yields.
Happens every damn launch for every damn GPU release, usually targeted at the GPU getting the most attention. If AMD releases specs for the 6000 and it beats out nvidia you can bet there will be rumors that the stock is low and it will get blamed on consoles or CPUs utilizing TSMC fabs, even though literally no one has this information except the manufacturers.
surt - Monday, September 14, 2020 - linkI work for a certain manufacturer. I can tell you right now, with absolute certainty, NVidia has less than a billion units ready to stock across _all_ models. Complete paper launch.
inighthawki - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkWhat would a normal number be? A billion sounds like an enormous number to me.
ogremic - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkI think autocorrect took over. Maybe a million would be closer to the truth. AMD sold over 500 million GPUs since 2013. Sooo...
Cooe - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkLiterally every credible PC technology reporter with a track record of good sources has been saying the exact same thing recently. It's not explicitly written in official information somewhere, but where there is THAT much smoke from that many people, there has to be a fire.
