6700XT LAUNCH

So there I am, waiting at my computer looking at my browser on amd.com for the 9am launch of the 6700xt. It doesn't show up right away. Okay I thought. I'll just keep refreshing the page every once in a while. Well after a minute or two. There it is, i add it to  checkout immediately, well as fast as I "HUMANLY" can. Not only did I not get one. I got banned from accessing your store page in the process? all at the same time? Hows that happen? AND WHY?

Re: 6700XT LAUNCH

Not sure but the launch date is 3/19/21 at 9pm or am PST I believe. So unless you're on GMT, the release is different. Use of a VPN to attempt to buy one early or out of region, would be a reason why the site banned you.

Radeon RX 6700 XT

AMD announced the card at their 'Where Gaming Begins epi3' presentation (March 3, 2021). As earlier indicated, only one NAVI22 SKU is released at this time. The Radeon RX 6700 XT. A Non-XT version may follow at a later date. The RX 6700 XT will be commercially available starting on the 18th of March 2021. "

Re: 6700XT LAUNCH

Same happened to me, I even got through to the last phase(step three) of checking out and then whilst trying to click on "place order" they booted me and wouldn't let me back in, not impressed with AMD, will be looking at switching to Nvidia.

As far as time goes, yes 9am EST and it showed up on AMD's page at 9:02am ish.

Re: 6700XT LAUNCH

I was on the AMD site before 8am launch time. Mostly did the same thing, kept refreshing, then seemed like the crashed, server error or some crap. The card never showed up when I refreshed, but at 9:02am, I was able to get back in and the card was listed, but........sold out. I've seen people posting them for sale on Ebay, Amazon, Facebook for sale...of course 3 times the RMSP. I'd like to know how they go hold of them early. Selling to crypto miners and **bleep** is BS. Screwed the core buyers (gamers). Really pissed and disappointed with AMD, they showed that they care only about the $$$ not the customers.

Re: 6700XT LAUNCH

I meant $800+ at my local stores in Canada, more so $900 to $1000.Way overpriced as all GPU's are at the moment(before scalping)

Going to Nvidia Will make no difference, They have done the same thing, In fact worse.And they also have no stock

and there are no signs of any stock anytime soon.

Re: 6700XT LAUNCH

I paid ~$900 after tax for a Red Devil 6700XT. Truly absurd that a AIB model 6700XT is priced at $820...

Re: 6700XT LAUNCH

Madness. 

Paper Launches. 

No stock of any GPU worth looking at.
