AMD Radeon RX 6800 series launch volume looks awful

Remember how AMD got people excited in September by stating the Radeon RX 6800 series launch would not be a paperlaunch? Unfortunately, it seems the launch situation of the Radeon RX 6800 series will not be much better than NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 30 series.

YouTube channel Hardware Unboxed reached out to Australian retailers and got to hear that launch volume of RX 6800 series cards will be very limited. This is the second time we're hearing this so thing are definitely looking bad if you want a new video card in the coming weeks. The channel also heard that custom-design cards will hit the market on November 25th.
(Availability) of these cards will be a hot topic when they release. So technically they are being released on the 18th (that’s when you are going to see our review) […] but I’m not really expecting you to buy one. I have spoken with quite a few retailers and stock seems pretty terrible, like RTX 3080 terrible. It will differ from region to region (I have only spoken to Australian retailers). […]

The actual proper custom AIB cards that most of you are probably going to be interested in, they won’t be releasing for another week. So 25th they become available. Probably again in limited numbers. It won’t be until a few weeks before start seeing strong availability.
