Tomorrow is a big day for AMD, as it set to unleash the first two Big Navi graphics cards for desktop gaming enthusiasts: the Radeon RX 6800 and the Radeon RX 6800 XT. Both RDNA 2 cards are promising some massive improvement in performance over their predecessors at 4K and 1440p gaming resolutions, while adding support for hardware ray tracing.

Luckily, post launch, we'll have both AMD's Frank Azor, Chief Architect of Gaming Solutions & Marketing and Scott Herkelman, CVP & GM of Radeon live to talk about all things pertaining to Big Navi on tomorrow's 2.5 Geeks broadcast. They'll be with us to answer our questions and yours, about performance, power consumption, and of course how the company product stack up versus NVIDIA.

Of course, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 Series is already a known quantity, so everyone is eager to see how the Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT stack up performance wise versus their GeForce RTX 3070 and GeForce RTX 3080 counterparts (you'll have to stay tuned for our review tomorrow for details, but it'll definitely be worth the wait). We’re sure that Azor and Herkelman will have plenty more to offer as well.

But that's not all, the duo will also be talking about AMD's other big release from earlier this month: the Ryzen 5000 Series, which headlined by the bodacious 16-core32-thread Ryzen 9 5950X. Those processors were immediate sellouts due to immense demand, and it's possible that the Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT could meet a similar fate tomorrow (and maybe the Radeon RX 6900 XT in early December). Perhaps Azor and Herkleman can give us some insight into the inventory situation and the road ahead.
