The RX 6800 is AMD's mid-tier card. Seriusly? Are we crazy? It's the 3rd less powerfull, but it's not mid-tier!!!

Because core frequency means everything to performance, huh?
Just disregard Vram, IPC, stream processors, compute units, blah, blah, blah.

/sarcasm
Ohh, the RTX 30 series can't touch those kinds of numbers, so the new RX 6000 cards are going to hammer RTX 30!

Its mid-tier for now

they will probably release slower cheaper cards on the same arch next year.
What s a 5700xt and 5600xt for you ? Entry level ? And a 5500xt, Rx 570, 580? The 6800 is just 70$ cheaper that the 6800xt and they are sharing the same chip. To my eyes it's the top tier to me.

Yes eventually the whole stack will be on RDNA 2 and everything else will be discontinued and on sale to clear inventory.
