I suppose that this is one of the cheaper models AMD said to HardwareUnboxed that would be coming in the next 4~8 weeks? So hopefully the MSRP of this will be the same as the reference or at maximum $20 or so more expensive.

Rumors are it's very close to msrp if not exactly at it.

Don't think it matters in the current market. For example, I just checked the 3060ti supply and while there are plenty of cards available today, the cheapest ones in russia are priced at mind-boggling 605$ (gigabyte eagle and msi twin fan (not even ventus, the one that's even shittier!), the two that are supposed to be close to msrp)

We don't even have them listed here in Canada from what I can tell.

Who comes with that brilliant marketing language?

"various copper heatpipes and an enlarged heatsink", fo realz?

Not to mention "fighter" sounds like a big step down from "red devil"...

Nice, no-frills, straightforward card that will fit in narrower cases though...

Its funny how AIB are announcing new models, when you can barely find any stock at all. There are stores that mentioned that they are not expecting any stock till Mar 2021 at least.

I feel if one is getting a high end card like the RX 6800 series, the minimal standards will be the reference model from AMD. All the AIB low entry level models tend to have questionable build.
