Several sources have commented on the Radeon RX 6700 XT's expected availability, AMD's first Navi 22-based graphics card. While the new midrange card will arrive in two days, March 18 may not be the date when stock levels are at their fullest.

The Radeon RX 6700 XT is due to arrive in a few days, albeit for a non-binding retail price of US$479. During the card's launch event, AMD insisted that it would have more stock RX 6700 XT stock available than it did with its other RDNA 2 cards, including the RX 6800 XT. Unfortunately, several sources suggest that it may be tricky for gamers to get their hands on the upcoming Navi 22 card at launch.

According to Red Gaming Tech, there were between 250 and 500 RX 6800 XT units in the UK at launch. By contrast, the YouTuber expects retailers to have between 1,000 and 2,000 RX 6700 XT cards this week, with similarly-sized shipments to arrive monthly thereafter. Similarly, Igor's Lab claims that there will be a few thousand RX 6700 XT units in Europe, although this is nothing for a market as large as the EU.

Additionally, @harukaze5719 has informed their followers that RX 6700 XT availability in South Korea will be 'better than expected'. While this may sound encouraging, AMD made hardly any RDNA 2 cards available at launch, so previous RX 6000 series launches probably set expectations for the RX 6700 XT at close to zero. Hence, @harukaze5719's tweet probably does not mean much for South Korean consumers either.
