Did you manage to buy a Radeon RX 6800/6800 XT GPU?

AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 series has just launched, and like the RTX 30 series before it, retail stocks did not last long in the UK. As usual, websites were swarmed with potential buyers, creating long page load times and a lot of 404 errors. 

After we published our AMD Radeon RX 6800/6800 XT review, we went to see if we could find any graphics cards in stock at the UK’s main PC components retailers. We failed to find a single graphics card, though it was clear that these graphics cards were experiencing insane levels of demand. 

We will provide you with links to several UK retailers so you can check for RX 6800 series stock yourself, but what we want to know is whether or not you have managed to purchase one of AMD’s new RDNA 2 graphics cards. Please comment on Facebook, Twitter or on the OC3D Forums if you have. 

2020 has left a lot of people hungry for new gaming hardware, and this can be seen within both the PC and console markets. With the ongoing pandemic restricting outdoor activities, gamers are willing to spend more on their PCs and console setups. Demand for new graphics cards has never been this high, and manufacturers are struggling to keep up with demand. 

If you have managed to purchase a Rade on RX 6800 series graphics card, please let us know. We would love to know how many folks managed to actually purchase a new graphics card today. If you didn’t manage to get a GPU today, know that additional stock is expected to arrive at retailers soon and that aftermarket RX 6000 series graphics cards are expected as early as next week.
