yup.Who cares. I'm not spending $150+ over the reference models for a 6800xt. Even the 3080's were "only" $110 or so for the top of the line models.
I think this is NE price gouging the more I think about it.
Micro Center confirmed they have no AIB cards for today. https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/5822/rx-6000-series-stock-from-aib-board-partnersI have to go pick up some RAM at Micro Center. Going to see how many people are in line at 9AM, lol
I think today might have just been the embargo, no actual stock shipping. And if you want a hybrid card, that's what they cost - that IS the MSRP for the card with the additional cooling. Not a markup.No way I'm paying that much over MSRP for an AIB. I never saw any come in stock anyway.
That's for the Nitro+ SE, regular Nitro+(No USB-c and less RGB) is $770 though that's still $20+ more than I expected. It looks like a decent card but I might just pick up a reference card if I can find one.$810 for TUF, $830 for Nitro+. Guess I'm getting a smoker for Christmas.
