AMD is still behind on their quotas for PS5's and XBoxes and they have been lite on their OEM deliveries for Laptop processors and EPYC's. AMD under the best of circumstances is silicon constrained with all these releases they have put out in an actual shortage they are just straight-up hooped. They have been focusing on pumping out parts that have small footprints and high success rates to maximize what silicon they can get their hands on.8 minutes of jibber-jabber when a single paragraph of text would suffice.
Here in the UK, we're seeing a more appropriate/logical market price segmentation, IMO, for the entry-level AIB cards (albeit prices are still massively inflated).
Strangely, the 6800 XT seems to be the "sweet spot" card for AMD and you can't find them anywhere (even less so than 3080s and 3080 Tis)
- 6800 for £900
- 6800 XT goes for £1000
- 3080 is selling for around £1100
- 6900 XT around $1200 ...same general performance and hash rate as 3080 ti, but disadvantaged in RT and DLSS
- 3080 TI around £1400 ...same general performance and hash rate as 6900XT, but RT and DLSS advantages
- 3090 £2000 ...top-tier, better hash rate/non-LHR
