XFX Radeon RX 6900 XT Speedster MERC 319 Black 16GB GDDR6 $1999 + Delivery @ PLE

430

Hey All

I thought I'd post this to advise availability of this highly sought after card.

Not sure if it's cheap for its price, but looks cheaper than other AIB's. Also a good looking card IMO.

  • Watching your money escape from your wallet like a speedster.

  • $2000 for a Gpu

      • Did you buy it for gaming? I can't find any benchmarks to justify the extra $1000+ compared to a 3080 and I thought it might be something more suited for productivity.
        I've almost pulled the trigger but it's just not there for me (yet). Plus I play at 1440p which a 3080 seems to be able to handle fine
        *Not that I'm judging your purchase. You do you man

        • 1440p Ultrawide gaming.

          FPS per $ wise it's absolutely terrible value no arguing that, i wanted the best and those extra fps does help in more demanding games like red dead 2 and Cyberpunk, even warzone barely hits my 160hz monitor refresh rate.
          as for why i didn't go for the 6900xt, DLSS is amazing and more recently ive found Nvidia broadcast's noise removal from my mic is insanely useful as well when i have my fan on to not piss others off.

        • Do you know free any tool for benchmarking without too much bloatware? I wanted to check mine

  • waiting for a normal price.

  • I have this card, it's a long slong (34cm from memory) so be mindful of your existing case size. Built like a tank, no GPU sag, quality understated looks and whisper quiet (I can hear my AIO pump over this card, it's that quiet) With default auto fans it hits low to mid 70's at 35% - 40% fan speed (26/27 degree room temp) Overclocking is good too, can hit 2700Mhz + comfortably. No doubt an RTX 3080 or 6800XT is better value (You don't need that extra kidney) but when you want the best team red has to offer than this is it for now…..

  • What a joke

  • I dont get why people are acting like $2000 for a GPU is ludicrous. Yes it is expensive, but it is nothing new. This time last year people were paying $2000+ for a high end 2080ti, this is no different. You should be used to it by now, surely.

  • LOL PLE…they will just take your money and trade you some slow moving squares in your profile for atleast 6 months. Would rather pay scalpers than buy from that incompetent mob.

    • Just because YOUR experience wasn't as pleasant as you'd hoped, don't write the whole business off.

      I for one think that PLE has great customer service especially through the thick of the corona period last year. The 2 times I've ordered through them has gone smoothly and delivery was prompt.

        Lets see what PLE got themselves into now that RTX prices have started to increase from manufacturers.

        PLE have alot of outstanding pre-orders since September, if they didn't hedge and locked in orders then. There's going to be alot of disappointed people after waiting 3 months.

      • clearly you are the golden child/chosen one for PLE…us plebs only get little No ETA squares with the money we give them.

    • totally agree

  • Anyone else still waiting for their 3080? I was charged in full through credit card payment after I swapped to a card that supposedly had a shorter queue. The credit card charge for my initial order was only a security amount, so I don't know why I was charged in full for the swap. I emailed them multiple times and they ignored me. And they aren't giving updates on supplies of 3080 anymore either.
    Never dealing with PLE again after I get my 3080.

    • Are you a member of Australia Bureau of Statistics?!
      Can you pls provide more insight into other products as well from consumer purchase behavior statistics?

      • Sure what do you want to buy, i can tell you about its scarcity, normal price, scalping price etc. (5700xt, 2080 super upwards)

        The 6900xt is value around a high end 3080, hence they don't sell very quickly at $1999

      • Are you a member of Australia Bureau of Statistics?!

        GOLD!!

  • The fan noise on my rx 580 is super loud when gaming in Verdansk. Does this mean I need to get the fans replaced?

  • I've bought this one from PLE on the first week of Jan with the 100$ discount I had from them, got it delivered couple of days later.

    Note that this is Black edition which has a little more overclock headroom than Ultra edition. Be aware that AMD software default/automatic configuration was unstable for me on this and was always crashing 2 min into games. Manually tuned now it works fine.

  • Does anyone know what's the RRP for RX 6900 XT in Australia?

  • any benches on rage mode with these? especially interested in VR, but I guess lack of stock also means lack of real world stats?

    • Running this Merc Black version with manual overclock and it is outrageously good/fast & totally stable. Easily reaches 2700mhz boost gpu clock and 2150mhz memory. Extremely stable and runs cool as … hotspot tops out at 75celsius with fan running at 60 to 70% speed and that is in Brisbane where temps have been pretty hot past few days.

      I am more than happy with this card as it is so well made quality wise and the beefed up power components and copper piping keep it running under 300 watts per GPU-Z. Nearly got the PNY 3090 for extra $599 but glad I didn't as I only use PC for simracing in VR (Reverb G2) and this card allows me to run SteamVR SS at upto 74% though I keep it at 60 odd % as it looks just as good but allows more headroom for day/night and some weather which does hit hard. Racing a 20 car field in daytime fine weather is no sweat though. Great card from AMD and yeah $2k is alot but depends on your income & priorities as it was $ well spent imho.

  • if it was highly sought after it would've already been out of stock

    • Going out of stock for this has happened at least three time since launch as I was monitoring it.
      Maybe this time they have more stock.

  • You get so much more buying an LG OLED TV vs a $2,000 graphics card from NVIDIA or AMD

    • Agreed, on 6 figures with multiple investment properties and still cant justify paying 1k+ for this.

      I know 2 people who have 3090s who can barely afford there own rent.

      • The old trap of spending money on things to distract yourself from how poorly you're doing compared to your friends. I blame you for your friends' impulse buys :P

    • wouldnt even touch a TV even if I bought one so whats the point?

        How do you know someone doesn't have a TV?

        Don't worry, they'll tell you.

    • Drop in another 750 dollars for the latest xbox or PS ( pretty much the cost of a cpu able to drive this card w/o a struggle + some ram), and you have potentially 4K VRR solved for the next 3-5 years with backwards compatibility. PCMR is becoming a frekking niche market unfortunately…

  • thats one good looking card… (despite terrible price for performance value)
