Pros: Short Length Solid performance Actually finding it in stock
Cons: Finding it stock
Overall Review: I replaced my 5700xt Nitro+ with this and the biggest feature is it's length being just short enough to fit in my 313mm clearance case without taking anything else out unlike the Nitro+. Performance wise, this card is enough to run Borderlands 2 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider at a locked 4k60 with ultra settings. It does this while running at 80C in my micro ATX case with 2 120mm intake fans and a 120mm exhaust fan.
Pros: - Not too long, fits in case with limited horizontal space - Quiet and cool - Is a 6800XT, and this year new video cards are terribly hard to find
Cons: - Wish price was closer to the reference 6800XT
Overall Review: Good card, runs well and is attractive in the case. I can't say I 'chose' this one as I was just clicking on whatever was in stock when new cards dropped -- but I am quite happy with it.
Pros: Great performance
Cons: Loud when stressed
Overall Review: I upgraded from a 3070 (I had a 1080ti before that) and I free like this card is a leap ahead of both cards. I play VR sims and I can now run high to ultra settings without freezes or stutter. I am truly impressed with AMD/Radeon - theyve closed the gap!
Pros: Really like the video card, performs very well in any game. AMD recently released FSR which is DLSS alternative and it looks amazing, pretty hard to tell the difference between native and upscaled image. Also having owned Radeon GPUs before I was a little worried about stability and drivers but it looks like AMD did a great job with this generation, haven't experienced any issues so far.
Cons: no cons really other then the price, haven't had any issues
Overall Review: Highly recommend this vuideo card if you can get it.
Pros: Easy install and runs loud when maxed out. Never above 70C. Takes a 2.9 slots to install - just saying its big because of cooling. No issues with install or working out of the box.
Cons: Came in a totally opened box - no plastic cover seal on box. Card was sealed in the box - not much in way of instructions. No English on the box - but is original over seas packaging. Just a way steep gouge on price. Had been waiting almost 4 months for a NewEgg shuffle to come my way - no luck and could not wait any longer.
Overall Review: OK Card - would buy the card again if I wanted a new rig with high end video. Not fair market price, but I already had a 5 year old computer with failing video card and could not wait longer than 4 months with a new rig in the corner.
Pros: - Great performance (meets my needs for 4k gaming.) - Quiet and cool enough that I don't notice a difference compared to my old card. - Easy to install (both the physical card and the drivers.)
Cons: - The video card had clearly already been opened. The box had no shrink wrap, and there was a small rip in the cardboard. Additionally, the anti-static bag had already been opened because the piece of tape holding it closed was already ripped. Would be 5 stars otherwise.
Overall Review: - It's an amazing video card; I'm thrilled with my purchase. - I'm disappointed that NewEgg sold me a new card and sent me an open-box card.
Pros: -Dual HDMI 2.1 ports (how many cards have this? seems to be a Gigabyte thing) -Compact but effective cooler design with plenty of copper (pipes + heatspreader) -Looks much nicer in person than in pics, matches my all Scythe fan build -Zero coil whine at any reasonable amount of FPS -Minimal RGB lighting defaults to mostly night friendly orange without software -AMD drivers do not cause DPC latency spikes for DAW work (the only reason I avoid Nvidia) -Incredible 4k120 experience on LG CX (paired with 5800x) in a good number of titles
Cons: -Pretty average performance for a 6800 XT, as in only a touch above reference -Cooling while good is also average, higher temps the the value competition ASUS TUF -It's a Gigabyte - reputation of sleeve bearing fans, poor value in gpus etc (though these sleeve bearings have a "graphene nano lubricant" which should help longevity). -AMD's ray tracing isn't quite competitive with Nvidia yet, but you know this going in -AMD will never add good h264 encoding and Twitch refuses to implement h265 before av1 so if you stream with all AMD you should keep a dedicated NVENC or Quick Sync equipped streambox around (thank you 2nd hdmi 2.1 port) -For the .001% who hate unnecessary light in the night we must install windows software to turn off RGB or switch to red. The is the only real negative on this card.
Overall Review: Good practical 6800 XT for gamers or workstation/power users, and has had better Newegg (proper) stock than others.
Pros: Fast GPU, easy install including software.
Cons: Dropped PC into standby/protection mode after running for various times (30 minutes to 2 hours).
Overall Review: After extensive troubleshooting and even reverting from Windows 11 to 10, narrowed issue down to the GPU itself. Since model was out of stock, Newegg issued a prompt refund, and I upgraded to an RTX3090. I'm guessing I just got unlucky, and couldn't get another to verify that was the case.

Pros: Fast Good overclocker Actually got one Power efficient when undervolted
Cons: Mine ran pretty hot and noisy Too expensive but I can't be mad at the product for me spending the money. Nothing else I can think of
Overall Review: Came from a 2080 super to this to go with my 5120x1440 120hz monitor and it is plenty powerful enough to enjoy this display to its fullest. Card boosts to a very nice 2350mhz out of the box and at a -110mv undervolt, only draws 190-200 watts according to both GPU-z and AMD software. Really happy about that. Overclocks pretty well to 2545mhz but definitely not on the stock cooler. Not sure if mine had a poor thermal paste application or what but I had to undervolt -110mv just to keep GPU under 80c and junction under 95c at stock clocks and sounding like a jet engine with fans at 100%. My 2080s ran low 60s silently in the same case so airflow isn't an issue. Don't see anyone else complaining about temps so maybe it was just mine and I won't dock an egg. I ended up water-cooling it anyway so this is no longer a concern.
Pros: Got an exchange so I guess that's good
Cons: DOA had to send back brand new card
Overall Review: Will update my opinion apon getting the replacement
