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.

Spunjji - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkThe most confidently-stated take I've seen is this:
The claim seems to be that it won't be weak supply so much as *limited* supply, to keep prices high. This makes sense from a number of perspectives - not least that Nvidia's partners more than likely have a bunch of Turing stock left to ship, which would be impossible to do without incurring significant losses if there is a healthy supply of Ampere products at RRP.
Personally, I'll be waiting to see. The bun-fight over FE cards is strictly for the fanboys. Even if prices go up over a month or two, it'll only be another month or two before they drop again - nobody's missing out on anything by waiting. If it turns out that stock levels are high then waiting a few weeks won't hurt, either.
It's telling to see who's saying "BUY NOW BEFORE IT GOES".
Spunjji - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkI mean, it's more likely to be both? You sound like the Intel fanboys who were saying that the 9000 series were hard to get because of high-demand, even as Intel themselves announced productshortages...
Oh, wait. I think you WERE one of those guys. 😂
Hxx - Monday, September 14, 2020 - linkthe RX 6000 flagship competes with the rtx 3070. They wont have a card to match 3080/90 so their release date preview is right on time and has nothing to do with yields or availability or anything. They are simply not competing with nvidia 's flagship cards. nvidia knows that too otherwise they wouldnt be releasing a 1500 videocard
NeuralNexus - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkKeep smoking that stuff
Spunjji - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkReleasing a $1500 video card indicates they don't think there will be competition at the 3090 level, for sure. At the 3080 level, you're just parroting the same crap the Nvidia shills are putting out to try to bait people into pre-orders before we even have independent benchmarks of Ampere, let alone know what RDNA 2 looks like.
Exodite - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkNo, AMD won't lose any sales by rushing to info-dump or release their cards.
The number of people who're both in the DIY market and willing to spend $500+ on a GPU is low to begin with.
Add to that unwilling to wait 1-2 months to get comparative information and you get... a number of people who were never going to buy AMDs offerings to begin with.
Which is fine, though let's not pretend those represent any lost sales.
Spunjji - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkThe funniest bit is the people posting these complaints are, by and large, the exact same ones who would be whining about buggy early drivers if AMD did a rapid launch.
NeuralNexus - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkIf you want to be stupid and spend your money before seeing what AMD has to offer as well, then that's on you. A lot of desperate people will spend their money without all the options on the table. With TSMC in AMD's corner on a superior node. I'm sure that AMD has something special in the works.
Xyler94 - Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - linkTo me personally, I use Nvidia tech, like G-Sync and Moonlight (which uses Nvidia Shield streaming), so if I were to get a new card, would be nvidia anyways. I don't fancy spending on a new monitor right now just to get free-sync, as my current monitor is perfectly capable still.
It's not a matter that I don't like Radeon cards, I just have been using Nvidia Tech, and would cost me more than just the cost of a GPU to switch, so AMD would REALLY have to be compelling in order for me to switch out...
Wreckage - Monday, September 14, 2020 - linkWill they finally be faster than a 1080ti?
