    Good Card, Bad Price

    I bought this at its original price of around $750. For that price it was about a $100 upgrade over my 5600xt after selling it. The gaming performance is night and day over the 5600xt but not at the $1250 they are asking for it now.

    It is a well built card except for the RGB software and stays below 60C when gaming at maxed settings at 144hz 1440p. Definitely not worth the $700 over MSRP though.

    Good Card

    Great card. Do not run card on semi passive mode, it makes the fans ramp up to max speed randomly which not only is really loud, but is also bad for the fans. LCD panel does not always remember what mode it is on when computer power on meaning that it goes back to its default look.

    Perfect for Ultra 1440p

    I purchased this GPU for my new build. This thing is an absolutely beast. I'm running this, at stock, in a Ryzen 5 5600X based build with a 32" 165 Hz 1440p FreeSync monitor. So far it's been able to handle everything I throw at it on Ultra/Highest like a champ. This includes Half-Life Alyx, Doom and Doom Eternal, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Resident Evil 3, Destiny 2, GTA V and Wolfenstein New Order/New Colossus.

    I haven't tried to run this on my 4k60 TV.

    I love the LCD display built into the card that I can see through my tempered glass case for monitoring the temps. So far the temps have been 53 or so degrees at idle with the fans completely off and not much higher at max load.

    Great Looking RX 6800

    Awesome card. Probably the best looking RX 6800 available right now. Faster than an RTX 3070 in some tests when plugged into a PCI-E 4.0 slot.

    Build quality seems pretty good for Gigabyte. The only thing that is not great are the thermal pads on the memory. Certain applications with this card cause the memory to thermal throttle.

    Great graphics card

    It's an RX 6800, it's a good graphics card. What more is there to say? Radeon 6000 lineup of cards all have more performance per dollar when compared to their main competitor: RTX 3000 series cards. Aorus is also a nice looking card so bonus points for that.

    Great card. Beefy cooler.

    Loving this card. Runs nice and cool, but that may be because this is a 3-slot cooler. I have a Gaming OC RTX 3070 in another computer, but this one is at least half-a-slot thicker. It seems obvious looking at the photos now, but be warned if you've got a smaller case.

    Another gotcha is that MSI Afterburner and AMD's built-in tuning are totally incompatible. You need to uninstall afterburner or update it to the _latest_ release with official support for the RX 6000-series cards. Otherwise, your GPU clock could throttle down to 500 MHz for some reason and you'll have a bad time.

    Awesome Card!

    Great card for the money in 2021. I was able to purchase it at retail without dealing with scalpers. Just had to check back daily and refresh the best buy website until I managed to get one. Maxes out most games at ultra on my 2k monitor!

    Great For What It Is

    Solid choice for a 6800. Got it with a 10% coupon but it still worked for my purposes. Pulls a little under 70MH for miners and will play any game you throw at it even though it is not the XT.

  • Review by bsef3a, 10 out of 10
    Nice card but very thick

    Thick card with good cooling. Like really thick, probably a little overkill but I've never seen temps over 70C on junction. Gaming performance is what you'd expect from a 6800. If we weren't in a gpu shortage and you had a choice, I think the reference 6800 XT is probably a better value @ $650 vs this card ($680) at the time of writing.

    Great GPU for those who manage to get it, at MSRP

    Of course a great GPU if you can get your hands on one. It' s a thicc boi for sure (3 PCI slots, or 58 mm thick). Fans are typically off in idle, which is particularly interesting in my ITX build.

    Good luck to potential buyers!

    King of value, if you can find near msrp

    Massive power!!

    Supposedly this GPU outperforms 3070 and 3070ti, especilaEspecially with SAM on.

    The thick heatsink keeps the temp under check and never gets overheated during the games.

    Fanless mode is nice, as there is a clear coil whine heard when fan is above 50%.

    Undervolts well, but had finger prints on new card

    I moved from a RX 480 8GB to this RX 6800 16GB Reference model from MSI. The card is excelent, I was able to undervolt it and overclock to get about 5% more frames out of it.

    There was just one problem, my particular card I picked up from the store had no plastic wrap on it, it looked like the box had been opened and had finger prints on the backplate. Best Buy did nothing about it and told me I could return it, but they couldn't replace it due to lack of inventory, and they said that it wasn't opened so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. I'm not happy with Best Buy, but the card is a really nice upgrade.

    My stable Undervolt

    GPU 900mV GPU, MAX Frequency 2400MHz

    VRAM: Max Frequency 2112MHz

    Memory Timing: Fast Timing

    Power Tuning: Power Limit 15% extra

    Great card if you don't care about ray tracing!

    Great AMD GPU! I don't care much about ray tracing, I went from an RTX 2060 to this beast, and have it pared with a 165hz 2K display. Amazingly consistent FPS, and the 16GB of VRAM will keep me for a couple of years.

    These OEM RX6xxx series are TANKS! My last card was a "value" version, and this thing is about the same length, within a half of an inch, but weighs a WHOLE POUND MORE! (and the 6800 has a SMALLER heatsink than the 6800XT/6900XT OEMs) The aluminum on the back, plus the beasty heatsink, make it really feel like a premium product from AMD.

    Depending on your preference between the 2 biggest desktop GPU companies, this one slots between the 3070 and 3080. While the overall value isn't perfect vs the 3070 at MSRP, I expect the 16GB of VRAM will keep it ahead in the futureproofing department.

    (I'm a big fan of AMD, but will usually go with the better value, but this purchase was only because I was lucky to get one of anything in stock!)

    The quietest RX 6800 on the market

    This is one of the best graphics cards XFX has ever made. I previously had the RX 5700 XT Thicc III (nice design, fans were loud during gaming) as well as the RX 5700 XT Raw II (garbage, so loud!).

    This Speedster Merc RX 6800 is super quiet even at full load. I was able to overclock to the current AMD capped maximum; it rivals a stock 6800 XT now. It was totally worth it at the $699 paid (not sure I'd buy it for the current $899 asking price though).

    Absolute Monster Air Cooled Card

    This card is absolutely insane. XFX did an amazing job with this card. This Is hands down the best air cooler on any card. Extreme overclock potential. Highly recommend avoiding reference cards since the 6000 series has high overclock potential. This card is gorgeous except for the Merc 319 logo on the back but hey maybe you like that.

    Lovely to look at and lovely to use

    This card was bought at 4:30 am and was well worth it. The card is quiet enough that you won't notice it even during heavy load. The frames outputted on this card is what you expect from a 6800 and haven't had any problems with it and also experience any of the AMD software issues. The only thing to note is that this card is very lengthy.
