Have to laugh at the backdrop to the announcement 6800XT 6900XT "Available now"
Cannot remember such a bizarre situation in all my years! I spoke to someone at OCUK yesterday whilst placing an order for a keyboard I am after and they can see it being the summer before there is anything like normal availability!
Don't think anyone a year ago would have predicted a run on keyboards...
Sorry that was meant to be about the GPU situation (not the keyboard lol ) which was in stock and ordered!
I ordered a keyboard through scan the other week. I knew it was out of stock but thought it’d be available within a week. Got an email to say it was 4 weeks away.
I’ve completely given up the idea of upgrading my rig because the manufacturers/sellers are having a laugh with the prices, and I’ve no doubt in a few months there will be better hardware out - fixed firmwares/drivers etc.
now is not the time to be upgrading!
I wonder how much price will they put on this monster laptop's head.
It is bizarre, I am happy to accept there are issues with come supply chains and excess demand for some products therefore we have some shortages, and also that PPE is blocking the ports somewhat so we also have a bit of a logjam, but so many tech related line items are in short supply the whole situation is totally unprecedented IMO.
