Where to find a BIG NAVI graphics card in the US and UK.
The RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT are now officially available for pre-order. Our RX 6800 and 6800 XT review shows that AMD’s promise of high-end performance has been achieved, so expect a lot of demand for the new cards. In this article, we’ll share the best places in the US and UK to pick up your new RX 6800 series card now that we’ve reached the 2PM GMT / 9AM ET November 18th release date.
So why is this card so hotly anticipated? Put simply, it’s the first card in a long time that actually threatens to challenge Nvidia’s dominant position in the graphics card market, the first cards that will actually go toe-to-toe with Nvidia’s high-end cards. If you’re building a mid-range to high-end rig, these are great choices with a reasonable degree of future-proofing, thanks to HDMI 2.1 support, 16GB of VRAM and RT capabilities too. There are also some neat features, like Smart Access Memory and Rage Mode which could boost performance further.
All that is to say that this card is expected to go fast, so here’s what you need to know – and the web pages you should probably bookmark!
