If you’re expecting red team’s Radeon RX 6000 Series launch to turn out as badly as NVIDIA’s, think again. During a brief Twitter exchange with an enthusiast who was unable to get a GeForce RTX 3090 (he wasn’t the only one), AMD’s Frank Azor dropped a playful hint that “Big Navi” will actually be obtainable when it hits store shelves later this year (?).
“Welp… not being able to pick up a 3090 today means my work is going to be f*cked for the next little bit,” tweeted Andre Elijah. “Can they at least release a new Quadro so I can get my work done?”
“I look forward to taking your $10 :),” the gaming solutions and marketing chief cheekily replied.

In another exchange, Azor suggested that he was doing everything in his power to ensure that prospective Radeon RX 6000 Series owners would be able to pick one up without serious delays.
“Doing our best to set and meet proper expectations,” noted Azor. “We are listening, learning and adapting to offer the best experience we can.”

AMD will share more details regarding its lineup of RDNA 2 graphics cards on October 28. According to a slide that we previously shared, the next-generation GPU architecture provides a 50 percent performance/watt improvement over its predecessor. The difference in efficiency between the Radeon RX 6000 Series and GeForce RTX 30 Series should be very interesting to look at.
