When I checked, they were at $850 - same price as some 3080 models. My biggest gripe is they only have 2 GPUs on their site, a 6750 at $549 and 6950 at $1099. I was looking for 3080/6800XT performance in the $650-$750 range,but the price I'm willing to pay is dropping the closer we get to next gen. Hope that makes sense - having a hard time getting more than an hour or two of sleep currently (RA).There are still partner cards being sold on Newegg and such, and the prices are coming down a bit. There is a sapphire there for about $800. But it is true, they haven't come down to around $650 yet.
There are certainly not many 6800 XT cards available. There are zero Nitro+ models. Maybe AMD diverted a bunch of chips to be used for the 6950 XT launch. Hopefully some of these nicer model 6800 XT start showing up again, and at MSRP.
I just saw this on the front page on slickdeals and remembered seeing this topic. B&H and Amazon both have it at $700. I'm not familiar with Sonnet though.I've been checking AMDs website for a 6800XT in stock at MSRP and I noticed they no longer have it listed. All they have is the 6750XT at $549 and the 6950XT at $1099 (still in stock). Nothing to compete with the 3070Ti or 3080.
Sonnet used to make components for Macs, like CPU upgrade cards, disk drive adapters, etc. They used rather distinctive purple heatsinks:
Purple is still their color. Later they went into eGPU's, thunderbolt docks, etc.
This card is marketed for use in (their own) eGPU enclosures and Macs. It seems to be made by Powercolor and might be just a commissioned design.
