Mixed Reports on AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT’s Availability: EU Getting A Few 1000 Units While APAC Receiving Larger Quantities Than Expected
With the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT launching soon, we are receiving mixed reports regarding the availability of the graphics card with some citing scarce supply while others reporting the supply being better than expected.
AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT Supply & Availability Rumors Point Out Few 1000 Units For EU But Larger Quantities For Asian Pacific Markets
The reports on the availability of the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card come from various tech outlets. First up, we have Igor's Lab who is reporting that AMD has allocated a couple of RX 6700 XT graphics cards for the German market and just around a few thousand units for the EU (European Union).
If you condense the information of various board partners and distributors to a trend, then there are, depending on the manufacturer and model, only a few pieces (for Germany) to a few thousand for the EU as a whole.

At the same time, we have Red Gaming Tech who talks about the availability in the UK. It is stated by them that UK will be receiving a much large AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT stock which consists of a thousand (or two thousand) units. It is also reported that a similar stock will be shipped out on a weekly basis after launch so the availability is expected to be much better than EU which is a much bigger region than the UK.

Lastly, we have reports coming in from South Korea by Harukaze who has tweeted out that the retail channel is expecting a larger quantity of AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics cards than usual. Of course, having a larger quantity than RX 6800/6900 series won't mean anything if the demand is still huge and the stock gets eaten up within hours or even minutes after launch. The Radeon RX 6700 XT was pushed back by AMD to make sure that they can build up a large inventory before the card is released to the public.
We are talking about 4-5 months of a wait after the Big Navi cards hit the streets. The Big Navi cards are still scarcely available and their prices have touched $1000 US+. With that said, we're expecting high prices for custom variants at launch which will average at around $600 US+ over $479 US reference pricing. The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT launches next week on the 18th of March & reviews will be published a day earlier.
