That is just insane.

Unless something changes I'm just going to sit out this generation.

Playing Cyberpunk can wait.
Better to wait until it's finished anyway.

CP was a disappointment anyway. Anything actually worth playing right runs just fine on the previous generation cards.
There was no way it couldn't be a disappointment with all that hype but it was just properly shit.

...and will post fps rates just like a typical OC'd 6900xt that costs a good bit less.

So that's about $3600. Fuck that. The ones at my MC for $2k were ridiculous. At least that one came with a water block attached so it probably run very close to those clocks also.

It's not as if anyone will actually be able to buy one at MSRP that does not run a bot network. Then again, scalpers are selling the 6900XT for "only" $2200 ish so....

This is the first thing I thought of when reading the title:

CP was better my second playthrough. The side missions are just as important as the story, so I cleared small areas at a time and didn't not progress to the end until the map was clear.
A beautifully flawed game. Could have been so much more.

And I also wouldn't worry about upgrading to anything either. No game is worth the asking prices.

Disguising pigs. :/

My regular 6900xt that I paid retail for and can play any game at maximum at stupid high fps. Why would any one pay 3000 smacks for 10 more fps and abyssmal Ray Tracing?

I hope they sell zero of those and lose money.
Mate, we shall nt wish something bad upon others if we don't want that to happn to us!

Maybe they sell a lot of them, get a lot of capital gain and in return lower prices for regular tier models a little bit!

They're clearly not in the business of lowering prices for anyone.
