My RX 6800 XT is winging its way from California to the UK, to be delivered Thursday I hope.
Lucky you! How much did that set you back? I caved and bought an RX6800 (not XT) on UK eBay a couple days ago. Just waiting for Big Sur to work with these cards, then I'll update my main Catalina install and go Big Sur full time!

Same boat. Any of you have RX 6800 and the fan is creating some weird noise while spinning?

I just updated to Big Sur 11.1 and popped my 6800 XT and I can confirm that there's currently still no support for the new AMD 6000 series cards. I was able to boot but the card is showing up as a generic card. Guess we'll have to wait for the next update.

£739.85 inc taxes & delivery. UPS now saying delivery tomorrow, Wednesday.
I bit more than I wanted to pay but with the current shortage in supply I decided to just bite the bullet. Otherwise it would probably be summer 2021 before I got my hands on one.

Just lucky I was on the website when it became available for all of about 10 seconds before the bots kicked in.

That’s not bad at all! I’ve seen some going on eBay for £1200+! The only reason I went for the 6800 was based on what I’d seen the XTs going for. Congratulations mate!
