A particular Swiss retailer has recently revealed that it will only receive an extremely thin order of just 35 units of the new AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT. This could be a particular indicator that the new GPUs by AMD could be extremely rare to buy come its official launch date just like the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090.
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT available stock
According to the story reported by PCMag, the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT will finally go on sale tomorrow but the big question is, will anyone be able to buy this GPU? A particular Swiss retailer said that it only expects to receive a tiny 35 units of the new next-gen GPUs. Digitec recently disclosed the information just last Thursday noting that even they aren't sure when these units will come to them.
According to the Swiss retailer, just like with the previous AMD Radeon 6800, there will only be a very small amount of cards to go around and it won't be enough for everybody. Indeed the known Radeon 6800 as well as the 6800 XT GPUs have immediately sold out just last month. This has made them close to impossible to purchase at the normal pricing. Ever since then, the cards still remain out of stock at all given major retailers.

As a response, AMD has reportedly been increasing their manufacturing. However, it still appears like the company now struggles to produce a larger quantity of this GPU. In the post, Digitec also said that only 25 units of the previous RX 6800 will arrive and only 17 units of the 6800 XT will reach the retailer.
Meanwhile, the particular Danish Proshop.de retailer (in an official statement) stated last month that it was able to receive 113 units of the AMD Radeon RX 6800 and only 34 units of the new 6800 XT. Most of the retailers have decided to sell this GPU on a strict first come first serve basis. However, Digitec has chosen a different approach. It was stated that they will only receive just a small number of cards which is why they have organized a mini lottery in order to pick those who will be able to get them.
AMD RX 6900 XT release date
The lottery is scheduled to happen over just a single day from December 8 up to December 9. The interested users will simply need to click on a certain button and their given Digitec account will then automatically enter the given raffle. The retailer will also then contact the winners through email. Over in the United States the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT is now expected to go on sale as of tomorrow morning starting at exactly 9am EST for major retailers which include Best Buy, Newegg, as well as the AMD official online store. Will this be the same situation as the NVIDIA RTX 3090 stock supply or will this be worse? Gamers will have to find out come the following months.
