When asked by a Twitter user, he answered that the reference versions of these video cards will be produced only until the beginning of 2021. After that, the company will rely on sales of models in non-standard version from its partners.

Recall that the start of sales of reference versions of video cards series Radeon RX 6800 took place on November 18. As expected, the novelties were in serious deficit and were quickly purchased worldwide. Many video card stores were never reached. Implementation of graphics cards Radeon, at least in the West, is engaged in the AMD itself and its partners, who also presented reference versions of gas pedals, but under their own brands. In addition, many partners of AMD company have already presented their non-reference versions of these models of graphics cards. However, the latter will go on sale not earlier than November 25. In contrast to the same NVIDIA, for AMD, the production of reference samples of new graphics cards only during the first months of their implementation is quite standard practice. Usually after that, the production and sales of graphics gas pedals Radeon are exclusively engaged in its partners, producing models with a different configuration of circuit boards and cooling systems.
