Saphire has their listings of their Nitro series up for the 6800 series cards.

6800 XT SE.  No MSRP up on any of them though.

You can see the whole line here: https://www.sapphiretech.com/en/consumer/nitro-radeon-rx-6800-16g-gddr6

If the Finnish prices are anything to go by, you're looking at a thousand dollars.

I figured that top card would be pricey. I am sure they will get plenty of people to buy it though it is a nice looking card.

Couldn't get me to buy it until prices drop back to normal. I'm sick of these GPUs costing more than the rest of the system combined, with the low end ones now sitting at the $500 mark (3060 Ti, which sits between the 2080 Super and 2080 Ti in power)...

Re: Saphire has their listings of their Nitro series up for the 6800 series cards.

I agree, to me 300 to 400 is still a lot for a GPU and that doesn't get you much right now compared to the top cards. When you can buy a whole console for 500 it does make wonder how they get the sales. However as you can't even buy a single RTX 2xxx or 3xxx series card right now apparently people will spend the money. It really tells you how unpopular the navi cards are as you can get them no problem and the performance is decent for the price it's just that I think it's reputation precedes it at this point. It will be interesting to see if RDNA2 does fix this. However it will cost you around 600 bucks to find out at a minimum, ouch.

I would buy the Sapphire card rather than the reference model. 
Wait for reviews.

Re: Sapphire has their listings of their Nitro series up for the 6800 series cards.

Woah: Just noticed this on the Sapphire Specification:

Linux®, Windows® 7*, Windows® 10, and Windows 8.1. 64-bit operating system required.

Windows 8.1 64bit OS?

Really?

AMD dropped support for Windows 8.1 64bit OS pre- launch of RX Vega GPUs with this:

https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-rad-win-17-7-2

AMD page says these OS supported:

OS Support Windows 10 - 64-Bit Edition Linux x86_64

@ray_m

Will Windows 7 drivers be provided for RX6000 series?
Will there be a way to install Windows 7 drivers on Windows 8.1 64 bit OS for RX6000 series?
Will Windows 10 Driver for RX6000 series install on Windows 8.1 64 bit OS?

Thanks.

Their probably just saying it will work with Win 7 and Win 8.1 to help boost sales. I'm sure you won't be able to find drivers for the two O|S. Kinda like "Crossfire Compatible"

In which case they should not advertise those OS.

Used to be able to run Adrenalin 2019 19.12.1 Windows 7 Drivers on Windows 8.1 64 bit. 
Windows 7 drivers were still provided for AMD GPUs. 

Pretty sure that Adrenalin 2020 drivers would not install on Windows 8.1 64bit at all last time I checked.
