There's some bad news for those hoping AMD's Radeon RX 6000 series card will see better availability than NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 lineup. ASUS Nordic representative, David Hammer, posted on SweClockers that launch availability will be very poor as it will be hard to meet the massive demand.

At launch, only reference-based cards will be available. The ASUS representative claims the launch volume will likely be sold out within minutes. A large chunk of this volume will be Radeon RX 6800 cards, with the XT variant making up a smaller portion.

The forum post also indicates it will be 1-2 weeks until AMD's board partners start shipping custom-design cards. At the moment, it's too early to say what supply for these cards will look like.
It is no secret that custom models will be available a bit later. We were told that the embargo on RX 6800 partners cards ends a week later than reference models, but the date has not been confirmed yet. It would make sense for the AIB cards sale embargo to lift on November 25th though.
