After promising RTX 3090 performance for $500 less, AMD’s Radeon RX 6900 XT has a lot to live up to.. Can it POSSIBLY be that good?

  • I got lucky at micro center today and was able to get a 6900xt red devil honestly my goal was a 3080 but in my opinion who ever fulfills the demand tends to win. Ik I lose out on 2nd gen RT and dlss but as of rn not that many titles have ray tracing in them. But this is my opinion both manufacturers are great. First AMD card let’s see how it goes 🤣

I wouldn't buy this card to play minecraft 🤣😂 come on your avoiding the games majority of people play.

  • Why even bother talking about price comparisons when they're only available from scalpers at ridiculous markups? If reviewers are there to help gamers make the wisest spending decisions, LTT & others should refuse to do reviews until there's sufficient stock for real consumers to buy them from retailers. Put pressure on AMD, Nvidia, and retailers to come up with a solution.
