Once again, there's very limited stock for the Radeon RX 6800 XT & RX 6800 at several retail outlets so only a lucky few will be able to get their hands on the cards. AMD and retail partners have stated that they will be receiving additional stock for the graphics cards today and in the weeks ahead but it looks like we are in for a repeat of the RTX 30 series launch. Following is an update provided by B & H retail outlet:

Graphics cards are showing immense demand this year and the latest AMD Radeon RX 6000 series is yet another amazing product. Unfortunately, availability of the RX 6800 and RX 6800 XT is extraordinarily limited. At this time, B&H does not know when and to what extent we will receive product to offer for sale. To avoid disappointing customers, we have decided to not accept preorders or orders for these cards. We do not know and are therefore unable to provide a date or time for when these items will become available to purchase.

This limitation is across all of B&H’s sales channels, including phone, chat, online, or even in person at the B&H SuperStore. Our sales teams are always glad to help, but will not be able to provide any information on these products at this time.

We ask that you all stay tuned for more information and bear with us as we navigate this launch. If and when we receive inventory, we will update our website.

While we know the demand for this new card is incredibly high, we want to make sure we do not disappoint our customers.
