  • Buy RX 6800 flash bios and you have 6800XT for less price.

  • 90% of r/pcmasterrace feels like they're looking in the mirror while they watch this.

  • Covid coughing in the thumbnail made it hard to click this vid.

  • 2:14 i love this guy

  • I read that Titel loud and my friend screamt "how can they be back if u cant order this shit when ur not A fzcking EEclone god"

  • buyer's beware, their driver sucks, texture flickering on all of my game using my RX 6800 XT

  • More Anthony videos please.

  • Anthony is the best

  • I found a Radeon 6800 regular and it’s really heavy. A lot heavier than it looks. I was like damn. It feels and looks so solid. It’s and msi card but looks exactly like the reference card. I meant identical like they all came from the same factory and the board partners just put them in their own boxes

  • "Will it be available at launch?" In a word, no.

  • I would buy a used car from this guy.

  • I like your hair haha

  • I didn't know you had a channel!!!! you got instant sub!

  • Anthony is the best

  • Anthony for Prime Minister!

  • I love this man, and his reviewing. But he needs to think about his health, I'm actually worried

  • Anthony is a god among men

  • 3080 ti just sayin' Wait until 06/2021 and those will be on Stock for normal prices

  • I came for the graphics cards I subbed for the Imperial system bashing

  • I've been watching more and more Anthony vids for his no nonsense style, Linus vids are just eyeroll these days.

  • Anthony is my favorite lol

  • If i could choose anyone at Linus to be my tech mentor it would 100% be Anthony.

  • a work of art

  • These cards might be on the par with Nvidia's 3k series, but I'm still probably going to pay a little more and go for the Nvidia route (when they're available in summer 2021...)

  • Anthony is the only person at LTT who knows what he’s talking about

  • Dude! You're so fat that for a few seconds my thoughts were derailed into writing this comment. I will now get back to my life. But seriously. Dude! Do something about it! Have some respect for yourself! You can't have the circumference of your neck be larger than your head!!

  • It looks like a geforce2 in Anthony's hands :D

  • You look like a discord mod lol

  • UwU

  • at 9:10 you called both RX 6800 XT ^^

  • And the bots win again, good luck finding one

  • Sorry. But. Anthony is so much more enjoyable to watch than Linus. Just wanted to put that out there.

  • Love Anthony's presentation style. Keep going 👍

  • Did Anthony release a review for the 6000 GPUs?

  • thumbs up for calling out imperial nonsense

  • Is AMD back? Me: where did they go?

  • i like how this guy talks like a human being. a stupid amount of youtubers these days sound like they are reading from a script

  • sapphire rx 6800 xt niro+ Price How much..!! $649+30 ...? & Sapphire RX 6800 nitro+ Price How much...!! $579+20....?

  • how can you voluntarily make ads for steel series... their quality is so poor...

  • why didnt u snore and pretend u were sleeping man ? :(

  • Anthony > LTT

  • Perfect man doesn't exi.........

  • Think your scale is off bud if I'm not mistaken a kelo is 2.2 pounds imperical

  • As Anthony’s hair grows longer so does his power. Steve at Gamers Nexus is in trouble!

  • I feel like Anthony would be that roommate that you absolutely do not know, but ends up being your best friend because he's just such a chill guy.

  • Anthony: "You might want a GPU brace for this (6800 XT weighed at 1.36kg)" Me: Has a Gigabyte Aorus 5700 XT (weighed at 1.69kg) Also Me: *It will be fiiiiiiine*

    • More Anthony reviews!! He’s the best!

  • Anthony is a sweet god, thanks for the video

  • Yesss love anthony!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • and should be considered a competitor to the 1080. the 1080 was nvidia's second highest gaming card and it was considered "high end."

  • u youtubers rly sucks stop this bullshit and checkout that rx 6000 gpus sucks at ray tracing

  • You really show honesty in how you express your true open thought, I really enjoyed this review you made here Anthony. I know the high priced greed Nvidia has, if AMD Wasn't around Nvidia and Intel they would gouge up the price to make all of us pay more for everything. I really like the in depth information you did at 10:02 talking about higher FPS talk. I was thinking here 12:00 when you started talking about the speed and that scene when The Doc screamed out of his mind yelling i.21 Jigawatt's... great scott! and Michael J Fox asked “What The Heck Is A Jigawatt?”" lol

  • Cons: No one can buy one

  • "I hate imperial" YES

  • 14:06 well that didn’t age well

  • That segue LOL.

  • I could get one of those, but do you think I should wait on a refresh? Please help me it's too hard to decide on my own.😱 Got a 2080 now on lg 38 inch 144hz

  • Too bad you can't find the damn things anywhere. Even the 2000 series is scarce now.

  • I want and i need 1000 fps

  • I get the feeling that Anthony is urged to do on-camera work against his will and he doesn't really like it. I hope he's cool with it though.

  • More Anthony reviews!! He’s the best!

  • Didn't know jabba did unboxings

  • Anthony's vibes are through the roof bro

  • i honestly do not get the hate for vega cards and why they aren't considered "high end." when they were released, they were marketed to compete with the 1080 (not 1080 ti), the msrp was priced against the 1080. the ONLY reason they were selling for 1080 ti prices was due to mining. amd could not control that. so.....when mining died down and prices normalized, you could buy a brand new vega 64 for cheaper than a brand new 1080 (non ti) card. i got one for $400 new a few years ago. and in 4k gaming, that vega 64 SMOKED the 1080. i can prove that too. i can show my own time spy scores that show that my own vega 64 smoked the 1080 in all but 3 runs for the 1080 (which were modified cards and mine was just a normal blower cooler that i overclocked!!!). really, in 4k that resolution utilized the hbm ram and allowed vega 64 to run better than the 1080. so.......if you were in the market for a cheap 4k card, then vega 64 was your best bet. which.......i do not understand why people do not consider it "high end" for its time. sure it came out roughly a year after the 1080, but when they were made, nvidia was still making the 1080 and vega was priced against it. guys claiming that its not high end, that's like comparing for instance, amd's 6800 (non xt) to the 3090. why? because msrp for the 3090 is substantially higher than the 6800. so......amd's own pricing was against the 1080 and should be considered a competitor to the 1080. the 1080 was nvidia's second highest gaming card and it was considered "high end."

  • Hey Anthony, if you guys ever come to a point where you're lacking a video content idea, could you read us a story? Thanks. LOTR or Harry Potter series sounds great.

  • I'm sure they everyone understands why Linus didn't do this unboxing and Anthony did. Anthony doesn't drop stuff.

  • Simple commercial teaching, create one product and compete with another. Set up an artificial duel, then you have a money printing machine.

  • Do you know what it lacks NVIDIA DRIVERS

  • I see Anthony I give a like!


  • what is the synonym for playing with yourself, by yourself, and getting really excited?

  • Anthony- Take care of yourself.

  • pure useless sector of the world's time. Gaming! If all the Billions and Billions poured ito it, we could change/alter 100s of millions of lives. Even olffering clean water before they starve. I really do get ired by these $3000 machine builds where often the person is renting or living at home. I say to those in this industry it is just like you are manufacturing crack. NVidida & AMD do make 'tools' for other more meaningful endeavors. But face it; gamers play fiddle while the earth burns elsewhere. Justify all you want but 20 hours per week is a measure of how much they are easily spending and many dollars more; rather than engaging in Life 1.00 with non virtuals. We all spend an hour min. on the phone already. 'Stop the Insanity'

  • Imperial RULEZ

  • So a non bitwit review, his review was an absolute disgrace

  • Head of Intel: "AMD and Nvidia fans, our new GPU is better than theirs. It's the same story as it is with our processors. Some software runs faster on an Intel because some greedy people were offered cash to write their software with the Intel compiler, the one that secretly detects who's processor it is first before deciding if top speed is needed. The benefit is that people can put food on the table. I thought it was illegal to avoid tax and bride people to only use your products. So, pay tax, be honest about how much tax we've actually paid, don't bribe anyone and stop slapping a new number on the same processors every time a tiny competitor launches a new processor. Got it. Thanks for the advice. Why oh why didn't anyone tell me this years ago? There has been a tiny whisper that someone was waving juicy college-student checks near the Dell, Hewlett Packard, Acer, Lenovo dinner tables if they correctly predicted which trucks are going to deliver the wrong processors to their factories. Incidentally, the people around Germany got to see college students Media Markt (Europe's biggest computer seller) take part in the daytime television game show "Guess the Truck". A strong slow aroma drifted over the fence from a neighbour's barbeque that if Intel eliminated their competition then only the LATEST Intel SSD will work with the newest processors but it was smokey sausages. Luckily security cameras caught the students Userbenchmark and PassMark putting their greedy hands into the padlocked Intel cookie jar, again. I don't feel safe any more. Help! Police! Come and get them! Officer, help! He's got me by the neck! I can't breathe. Help! What is that? That's the biggest knife I've ever seen. Even my legs aren't that long. Help! Help! Yeah! I managed to grab the knife off him. No, no, unfortunately, he's got it back again. Helllp!!! I'm too young to die. Oh thank you, officer. You saved me! Yeah, you got him. He's walking off in cuffs now. Good work, boys. I've never been so scared. You criminals never learn. So, the moral of the story is never use deceit to steal from hard-working ordinary people. How could I be so stupid? I think I've finally figured it out: the thefts always seem to happen prior to another version release of their software. Fear not, I think our new ten-million-dollar security system will finish off their update plans. So long, guys. It's been nice knowing you. This is a private message for our fanboys ONLY: maybe, just maybe, there's a teeny tiny bit of truth to the idea that someone else might make faster processors? Ouch! Get off my leg. How do you get rid of this thing? Yes, I know, in five minutes' time its mother will need to feed it with a live alligator. Can't it just eat some pizza? I also have a famous mega family but right now I think I need to visit some of my rich uncles, uncle Googie and uncle Amazy, to pass on some of these new tips so that they don't get into trouble with the law. Some people describe Amazy as an ancient alien space coffin. This is a perfect insult. Oh and by the way uncle Amazy is the one who sells all our processors out of his garage, along with several fridge magnets. At least that's what he told me. He says that the garage is where he keeps his 1535 cars but as none of them have worked for the last 14 years he's been getting free rides from auntie Ubee's cars. I really think it's time she starts paying tax too. Oh and you can keep your money too. We don't need any more of it, thank you very much."

  • Linus is salty against Apple, I guess because he is not on the Apple reviewers list. It was funny at first, but now it's just unprofessional. Ninite...what are you talking about...go to App Store and one-click install as much you want. Even the biggest skeptic has to admit that M1 is a piece of an engineering marvel. Anyway, I can't wait for Anthonys Mac Mini's review.

  • 589,- euro for a 3070 gigabyte Aorus oc 8gb, good deal ? or go for the 6800xt for ... ( price = dont know yet )

  • Well, you saw my comment

  • If Anthony walked up to me and punched me in the head without saying a word I WOULD APOLOGISE to him because I obviously did something wrong

  • Comments section breakdown: 5% The new cards 20% "I hate Imperial." +1 75% Anthony. Best. Guy. Ever.

  • Dude, I have access to main Distributors and nobody is selling it .. nobody.

  • He is my fav member of the linus crew 😊


  • 14:04 well that never happened lol

  • Love you, Anthony, you are of the highest order supreme!

  • Anthony is a real one 👊

  • Actually best segway ever No cap

    • Im not meme'ing im actually happy that he went straight to the nect topic and was akward for doing what he was told and not what the people want 💜💜💜

  • they proberbly have a private "plantation"

  • Since LTT seems to be into making more and more channels, how's about a tutorial channel for those who have less knowledge about the finer points of PCs and hardware in general? Explaining how memory works, memory speeds, the pros/cons of different fan sizes, how to set up RGB, how CPUs work, the evolution of GPU tech, water/air cooling systems, what different chips do on the motherboard, whata PCI express is and what the 4x,8x and 16x means, what refresh rates for monitors means etc.,... all the stuff tech trained guys know like second nature but the average viewer has no idea of. It would really help people become more PC savvy, and gain more views for the other channels that are for the more initiated. Food for thought. Having Anthony run over some tech stuff in layman terms would be good, informative entertainment. I know these things get addressed intermittently in other videos, but having a playlist of say 10-20 good, concentrated learning videos to cover all the bases would be cool...

  • If you’re looking for FPS, skip this video.

  • *_Anthony_*

  • *_Anthony_*


  • Let me get one of those homie! I haven't been able to score a card for 2 months!

  • „I hate imperial“ - The best quote on ShortCircuit ever!

  • Damn Frodo went to alot of Fast Food Spots after Lord of the Rings

  • HELP THE PRICING FOR ALL THE NEW AMD GPUS and CPUS IS VERY HIGH NOT EVEN CLOSE !! i can't buy anything even if they resolve the problems of availability So we need you condemn this actes (their source!!) we need amd to take actions agaist this huge probleme I can wait for availibility but we need the pricing to go down Otherwise am not buying anything !!!!!! RYZEN 9 5900X is listing for 1100 euro on amazon !!!!! or 850 dollars oon other websites rx 6800 xt is listing for 800 euro 850 dollars OMG THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE

  • and then they will give us - no stock, and then when there will eventually be stock - they will give us bad drivers... I bought a second hand 2080 and I keep waiting for a 3070 to come in stock, feels like hunting unicorns

    • I thought Anthony decided to make his own EEclone channel. He definitely should
