So,

If this is the card:AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT

https://www.amd.com/en/products/graphics/amd-radeon-rx-6800-xt

That's within my reach.

Not available of course.. but I'll wait.

Problem is I don't see it on the list of cards that work in the Razer Core X.

 

Any thoughts?

just chatted with a guy from AMD, next Thursday they’ll be some available. First come first serve. Fingers crossed I guess.

@madcat235, Well… yeah. AMD is sketch AF.

They have zero credibility and ethics when discussing Big Navi 6800 XT / 6900 XT cards.

Sonnet breakaway box enclosures have worked well for me - if you want something other than a Razer Core X.

No one can get chips right now. Supposedly this will change within another 6-months.

if this https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B08Q7KF1FR/ref=sspa_mw_detail_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1&pd_rd_i=B08Q7KF1FRp13NParams works with the new AMD 6800xt I’m ok with that.

Biggest problem I have is sorting through which card is which on a chart. There’s a lot that have “6800” in the name.

Confuses me so much my brain hurts…

any opinion on the AMD Pro cards? That’s my other option.

@madcat235, The Sonnet Breakaway Box 750 will work with the 6800 XT. It’s the same as the Breakaway Box 650, just with a larger PSU. 

Big Sur should have good driver support for the Pro W5500 card, as my  consumer RX 5500 XT version is 100% stable and reliable.
