Because the other 50000 were sold behind the counter to miners... i bet.
Miners are a problem, but the pandemic is the far bigger issue. They are being scapegoated above their weight honestly.

For example, does your dad know exactly why he can't get a tractor right now? A specific component shortage? Shipping delays?
My understanding is it simply comes down to the dealer not having stock, which would point to production issues of some type for sure.

Over at proshop, the total number of 6800, 6800XT and 6900XT they have received until now are way less than the number of 3080 proshop received after 2 months of 3080 launch
RX6000 Availability 03/2021
RTX3000 Availability in 01/12/2020

And people were saying Nvidia did a paper launch :roll:

Also: "The company is currently relying on the overbooked TSMC, which can only produce a limited amount of chips at the time..." Looking at the market, neither TSMC, nor Samsung seems to be producing anything at the moment (not to mention GloFo which I haven't heard about in ages).

Benchmark Scores I once clocked a Celeron-300A to 564MHz on an Abit BE6 and it scored over 9000.
Ignoring the supply and demand issue, it's not looking like much of an upgrade over a 5700XT based on early leaks.
I am really looking forward to a clock-equalised comparison of RDNA1 (5700XT) vs RDNA2 (6700XT) since they share very similar core layouts but on different architectures.

Given that leaks show a 20-40% improvement and the clock difference is over 20%, it's looking like RDNA2 isn't as much of an architectural leap as AMD has been singing about. We'll have to see when the review embargo ends, because leaks can't be trusted.

Imagine if the Intel gpu turns out to be very good for mining.....

Every GPU that can run OpenCL or any other GPGPU API will be good for mining.

At least Intel picked a really good time to enter the dGPU space. Their first card isn't hitting retail channels at all though--it went straight to OEMs who no doubt were desperate for them, too. I really do wonder how long it will be before the gaming developers start putting pressure on NVIDIA and AMD to fix this. It's going to cost them eventually, if it hasn't already.When RX570s are going for $350, it's likely that an Intel card that can game at 1080P medium is going to sell just as well right now.

You know that being made on the same process, Navi22's much higher clockspeeds than Navi10's is an arch improvement me thinks, beside the IPC increase. And 30% more on the same shader count and process is much by any definition. That allowed the mid of the line GPU from AMD to reach the flagship of the last nVidia gen of GPUs.

I've put my vega 64 and my RX 480 up on ebay. Not sure if I'll pocket the cash or use that money to buy a 6900xt once things finally slow back down.

Use that money to trade crypto, who knows it might just be more meaningful than playing video games all day :roll:

AMD supplied MILLIONS of chips for PS5 and XBOX in just the past year alone but can only supply a few thousand of their own (more profitable) chips for worldwide distribution huh. Something doesn't add up, are they also selling their inventory directly to mining operators? 2,000 cards for all of Europe at launch is considered significantly more inventory? lets say they supply 2,000 every week for 1 year, that's 108,000 cards for the EU market meanwhile they will have supplied millions of chips for consoles in that same period for the lowest possible negotiated profit margins.

I want to know exactly how many cards they are putting into the Retail and AIB channels because I suspect most of these cards are never making it to market, they are being siphoned out somewhere either by direct-to-miners agreements or aib-to-miners loopholes as none of us are seeing ANY of these cards.
Either this or they are shooting themselves in the foot, they are wasting silicon on consoles, wasting because there are no games for them and AMD isn't making huge margins on them, worse they could've eaten up Intel and nVidia's market share.

Starting to think, buying a 6900xt wasn't a bad idea now. I got the card, got a new monitor. I'm basically covered for a while. Especially, if I can see now that the situation with the cards is not going to improve soon and the prices will go up even more. Bummer.

Few thousand is lot for RX 6700 XT. According to Mindfactory.de AMD only sold 670 unit of RX 5700 XT on Week 32 and Mindfactory numbers are optimistic for AMD. AMD is supplying GPU according to thier previous sell data of that class of GPU, not according new enflated demand. And a lots of complain from people who never buys AMD GPU or will never buy AMD gpus. If you want cheap Nvidia GPU, Mr Jensen already told the way to get, just need to buy more Nvidia GPU.

TL;DR If one website sold 670 units in the past, a few thousand for the entire continent is a lot. Right?

Does it really matter if there are a few thousand or few ten thousand cards available at launch? They wouldn't be able to satisfy the demand in either case.
Also, the current prices are eye-watering high. Would you buy a GPU for 1.5x-2x the MSRP? I know I wouldn't ...
