    Anyone running a 6000 series card under Arch Linux?

    As you're already running a AMD card you shouldn't have any issues unless the kernel your Mint is on is older. I was coming from a 2080Ti and even though I had removed all the nvidia drivers, Arch didn't just boot up and see there was a AMD card there. sam

    Anyone running a 6000 series card under Arch Linux?

    Forgot to mention I had edited the mkinitcpio.conf file to add "amdgpu radeon" to the MODULES first, then ran the mkinitcpio -p linux command.

Have a huge case (Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra) so even with...

    Anyone running a 6000 series card under Arch Linux?

    I'm currently using a 2080Ti, have a Z570 & a 5950X to do an upgrade with once I get around to actually doing it. Would be nice if I get a 6900X in today's (or any days) Newegg Shuffle. Last resort is making the hour drive to Microcenter and getting a $1800 Powercolor 6900XT. sam

    Correction on the amount of cards at Cambridge MC. Some original posts from people in line said MC employees said "this was the biggest card drop we've seen in 2months".

    When BLT is out of stock a/o no eta on a product, you can't order/pre-order. With the latest AMD CPUs and both AMD & Nvidia GPUs, if they are OOS and no eta on a shipment, they would have a notice on the main page saying you can't order them and you won't find them listed on their site.
