    Thanks to Slickdeals for sponsoring this one! Check out their browser extension to start saving money when you shop for tech online! Also, sorry some of the video image quality is sub-par. It was a technical oversight that was, as usual, completely my fault...but it actually comes with good news - I hired a new editor! I appreciate you guys being patient with me over the last couple weeks while I looked for one, and thanks in advance for bearing with us as we get into the groove of our new workflow. So.......Anyone buy a 6700 XT for MSRP today?

      Hi Bitwit! I'm in Tokyo, and I took a trip to Akihabara yesterday. I thought you might be interested in what I found. First, I did not go to the chain store Yodabashi Camera, which is where you went in your video a couple of years ago. I went to the main computer shops, which are Tsukumo and Softmap. Both shops had RX 6700 XTs readily available, one per customer. They were priced anywhere between 80,000 to 110,000 yen, depending on brand. During normal times, I would have expected the 6700 XT to be about 60,000 yen. Last August, I paid 55,000 yen for a Sapphire Nitro+5700 XT, which in retrospect might have been a good deal! Also to note, RTX 3070s and 3090s have been readily available, with the latter ranging from 190,000 to nearly 300,000 yen. RTX 3060 ti can also be found at times. RX 6900 XTs are available and close to the 3090 price range. Finally, RTX 3080s have been non-existent outside of pre-builds, and RX 6800 and the XT variant are now difficult to find.

    I’ve never cared about integrated graphics before, but with the shortage of GPUs, can you comment or make a video comparing AMD versus Intel, which CPUs actually have usable integrated graphics, and what kind of performance you can get out of them? The idea of using it as a stopgap until GPUs are back is becoming more and more intriguing!

    We got them at the local store twice but they sold out in minutes as they were only able to fill hundreds of back orders. I managed to get my backorder filled second round. They are no longer accepting backorders at the store here. Not until they catch up on all the backorders they have still waiting. Without Raytracing sits between 3060Ti and 3070. With Raytracing it's a 2070 for now till DX12 Raytracing is a thing.

    I was online at 5:30 and when launch hit I didn’t get jack, failed the Newegg shuffle as well, then for the next 6 days I sat there using a discord where a bot scanned instock drops and for 6 plus hours each day with links to new in stock I still failed getting any, also while failing the Newegg shuffles so I ended up instead of trying for any card I got a asus strix $800 or so card for 300 bucks extra off eBay which isn’t full scalper price but it’s like I paid an extra to get a free raffle win for the card of my choice so I’ll take it but still sucks.

    The "crypto craze" is going up and up... And now with the boom of the NFTs, through ethereum, cardano, etc... The one thing is... apparently mining tech, devices, protocols, networks/systems are fast evolving... maybe in the future they won't require as many video cards...Still, IMO the issue is WAY bigger than just mining. There's low supply of chips at many levels. ALthough I can find CPUs, RAM, monitors, SSDs, at decent prices, but not cards, so... those articles saying is not really the miners (and the scalpers, but scalpers are more like a side effect, not the cause) ...I dunno, I have serious doubts on the mining being "irrelevant" in the issue. Too much of a coincidence as the other chips are not so hard to get at good price. And more about companies doing the mining massively, rather than the average joe/jane with two cards.

    I stood in line for 8 hours and was the 8th person to get this GPU. I got it for $470. I honestly didn't know what to expect either. But after reviewing the benchmark testing by SE-oners, I went ahead and decided to get one. I was pretty upset that I didn't get a RTX 3060 Ti. But since this GPU is suppose to out-perform it, I decided to go ahead and get it since it'll definitely be an upgrade from my GTX 1070 Ti. And I'm pretty happy with it. After seeing Gamer Nexus tear-down, I will definitely be installing thermal pads as needed since this GPU does run hot.
