Thats the real question, how many of these cards ended up in the hands of miners, because they're obviously not making it to the hands of gamers :-/. Reminds me of the RX 480 launch, they were great mid range gamers for a fair price. But they were launched in the middle of a crypto boom so people bought the GTX 1060 instead since it was available, it took a long time for the RX 480 and then the 580 to have a presence on the steam hardware survey.

So one of these ended up in my hands after continually searching NewEgg's Shuffles (always unsuccessful), Amazon, B&H, AMD's website, Zotac, etc. (Wasted several months of my time in early-late Spring trying to complete a new build with a new Lian Li case and ASUS B550M and a Ryzen 5-5600X.) Finally, just lucky (?) snagged - between the miners and bots - on Amazon a PowerColor Red Devil AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT 12GB GDDR6 listed at $1,029.99. I swallowed hard - but because I could afford to pay the price - decided to 'get on with my life' and I put it in my cart and checked out! It's in my new build - more GPU than I wanted or needed, but, well, it's red and it works OK. (Have yet to visit Steam, so I'm not one of the 0.11%.)
