nVidia seems to have designed it's cards to undermine AMDs offerings, if you balance price, performance and RAM.
I don't claim to know what unreleased stuff will cost, but they should be similar given the reasonable limits of current tech. Sure, they each go about things different ways but no matter what else is up the cost of all the components is similar.
Not this time. The 6900XT will have 6 more GBs of RAM and was made at TSMC, which seems to be charging a lot more than Samsung. It seems likely that this turn nVidia is paying less for parts than AMD.

Check this link for the prices TSMC is likely charging per wafer:

Either way it’s been NVs game for a long time so they can charge whatever they want.

AMD doesn’t have a strong position but Ryzen and Navi showed they are capable of a comeback.

All this speculation doesn’t really accomplish much unless we’re just wasting time.

While yesterday brought the release of Intel's oneAPI 1.0 specification, the interesting news today is that oneAPI support is coming to AMD Radeon graphics cards.

Pinch of salt... {8()+
I can't imagine AMD's best this round will only be ~RTX 3070 performance, but you never know.

Some more fuel:
They're either holding something back, or letting down the fanboys gently. :P
Either way, that's 'close enough' to make Nvidia uncomfortable (depending on price).

AMD Teases Radeon RX 6000 Card Performance Numbers: Aiming For 3080?:
As part of today’s Zen 3 desktop CPU announcement from AMD, the company also threw in a quick teaser from the GPU side of the company in order to show off the combined power of their CPUs and GPUs. The other half of AMD is preparing for their own announcement in a few weeks, where they’ll be holding a keynote for their forthcoming Radeon RX 6000 video cards.

With the recent launch of NVIDIA’s Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 series parts clearly on their minds, AMD briefly teased the performance of a forthcoming high-end RX 6000 video card. The company isn’t disclosing any specification details of the unnamed card – short of course that it’s an RDNA2-based RX 6000 part – but the company did disclose a few choice benchmark numbers from their labs.

If AMD are competitive I wouldn't be surprised to 'suddenly' see more Nvidia cards made available. :wink:

Also bear in mind though AMD's Big Navi numbers are from a system running Zen 3, I know 4K isn't hugely CPU influenced, but that could skew those percentages somewhat.
