Although the situation is improving, it is still extremely difficult to score some of the latest graphics cards at prices even approaching their MSRPs. With that in mind, we’ve held off on covering some of the hottest GPUs to come through the lab for a while, because the coverage was inevitably (and understandably) met with groans and...

Our thumbs are starting to cramp because we have done so much twiddling as we wait for the latest generation CPU and GPU hardware to actually be in stock. From first person sellers, that is—we have no desire to play grossly inflated prices for the newest tech from marketplace sellers. To that end there is some good... Read more...
Slowly but surely, it is becoming the absolute worst time to buy computer components as a new tariff that went into effect earlier this year is starting to trickle down to retailers. Customers in the market for PC components such as GPUs, motherboards and more, are beginning to see price hikes in stores and online... Read more...
Yesterday, channel sources indicated that AMD was winding down production of its Radeon RX 6800, Radeon RX 6800 XT, and Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics cards.

Reference models of AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series will not be produced forever, with manufacturing coming to an end perhaps sooner than you think. Officially, AMD will stop making reference Radeon RX 6000 cards early next year, as AMD's Scott Herkelman stated on Twitter. Unofficially, production may have already come to... Read more...
This year, we've encountered a chaotic failure of both the red and green teams with respect to being able to meet demand at the launches of their flagship graphics cards. Stock disappeared almost immediately for both, but on the AMD side, the prices of cards from AIB partners especially have been over-inflated... Read more...
AMD launched its Radeon RX 6800 and Radeon RX 6800 XT to the public last week, and as expected, they represented quite the performance leap over their Radeon RX 5700 and Radeon RX 5700 XT predecessors.

Godfall launched last week for PC, and as we reported earlier this month, the game didn't come with real time ray tracing effects enabled by default. While disappointing to gamers that wanted to get the best visuals fresh out of the box on launch day, we've got some good news and bad news for you regarding ray tracing... Read more...
We're beginning to sound like a broken record here, but it looks as though yet another PC hardware launch is going to be marred by poor availability. We've seen it with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series and AMD Ryzen 5000 Series, and now the same thing is about to happen with the Radeon RX 6800 Series, which launches... Read more...
For the past few weeks, PC gamers have been eagerly anticipating the launch of AMD’s Radeon RX 6000 series, a.k.a. “Big Navi”. NVIDIA shook up the GPU market over the last few months with its Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30-series cards, which offer significantly more performance and value than their... Read more...
Yesterday I wrote about some leaked benchmark results at the Ashes of the Singularity (AOTS) database, purporting to be obtained from a Radeon RX 6800 XT. Now a day later, there are more RDNA 2 benchmarks to absorb, this time from the model that is one step below—the Radeon RX 6800 (non-XT), from the same AOTS... Read more...
AMD has a lot of to prove with its next-generation Radeon RX 6000 Series of high-end enthusiast graphics cards.

The Graphics Wars of 2020 continue to heat up. We already know most of the players on the field from both AMD and NVIDIA, but not all of the various models have been released into the wild yet. AMD talked a really big game when it announced the Big Navi family of Radeon RX 6000 graphics cards, which included the RX... Read more...
AMD provided some tantalizing benchmark results for its Radeon RX 6000 series during its launch event, though we have been around long enough to know that internal testing does not always tell the whole story. So, how do AMD's next-gen graphics card actually perform? The reviews will tell the final story. As a... Read more...
