Nope. It's impossible to buy anything since AMD released new CPUs and GPUs last November. Especially GPUs. Still waiting to get the non existent Sapphire Pulse RX 6800 XT. I don't really get how some write they bought something like that. Must be pure random luck since these cards seem to be produced in single digits.

I got my 6800XT from reading local forums and following the "in stock" threads, stocks come in regularly but you have to be very fast when they do show up in stock.

I can't even find the model that I want anywhere - Sapphire Pulse RX 6800 XT. Not really interested in stock models and custom ones are impossible to buy.

That's the one I was lucky to get. If you want a Sapphire 6800 XT I would say buy any brand you can get for now and sell it later if you can get your hands on a Sapphire or you might have to wait a long time.
Quoting: slaapliedjeThat's because you can't buy any new hardware!

Why do you need new hardware? What purpose would it fulfill for you? Is your current hardware somehow in any way lacking in ability of serving your needs and expectations?

Get functional hardware..

Let me be blunt; If your need is simply to aquire the "newest and latest" expensive f%cling sh!t , you aught to seriously reconsider your priorities. If only for the sake of the contents in your wallet and your personal economy.

(i'm not saying that is your mentality, i don't know you or your computing requirements. But there's plenty of people who think that way. Commonly referred to as "Materialists / Consumerists")

Where did you buy it? I can't find any listing for it except on Amazon where it's always not available.

This is a rather nonsense recommendation. You can't buy a functional GPU now. Neither recent nor old. They are non existent. I.e. old ones are not produced anymore and new ones are produced in minuscule quantities which makes them impossible to buy. Check the real situation first.

Got it from Webhallen, Swedish store. https://www.webhallen.com/se/product/328836-Sapphire-NITRO-AMD-Radeon-RX-6800-XT-OC
Komplett also lists it, https://www.komplett.se/product/1174793/datorutrustning/datorkomponenter/grafikkort/sapphire-radeon-rx-6800-xt-nitro

Seems a few Swedish resellers lists it at least.

Missed you wanted the Pulse version, I have not seen that either.

Yeah, I can find a bunch of Nitro listings (all sold out, but still from normal sellers). Pulse - only on Amazon and it always directs to scalpers with some ridiculous price if it's ever in stock.

Hell, I just looked up the going price for my current video card, a Nvidia 1070 Ti.... I got it for 409$USD in 2018. Today, same card used at the same site, 799$USD. New, 1150$USD.

Wow. Nearly double/triple the price for four year old hardware...
