AMD's Where Gaming Begins Episode 3 stream tomorrow will introduce us all to the AMD RX 6700 XT graphics card. That's where we'll get the basic low-down on the specs and performance of the new Navi 22-based GPU ahead of launch sometime in mid-March. But, inevitably, the first thing that people are going to be asking about the new Radeon graphics card is: Am I going to be able to buy one? The second question, linked to that first, will be: What the hell are you doing about miners? The graphics card market is in a pickle at the moment, to say the least.
