    yeah... I had the 6800xt in my cart at 9am, went through the checkout, added my info, hit confirm order and was kicked back to AMD’s main homepage.

    that’s the problem with these launches, with how fast things sell out you really only have time to F5 one site. 1-2 minutes after 6am makes a massive difference. Last week I knew my best luck would be with AMD directly but on Wednesday I’d...

    I think the initial stock run is done, the AIB cards are dropping Wednesday anyways. I doubt anything will be in stock until then but if Kyle is right stock should be plentiful Wednesday, just make sure to break your F5 key right at 6am PST.

    Why even tweet that though... ok, maybe he doesn't have special access and isn't given priority to buy one, but still, as an AMD rep, why would you toss that in everyone's face knowing most couldn't get one, and the cherry on top is he's the one...

    Yeah I think AMD was one up on the bots. It sucks that links to buy the cards were not well advertised, not just for AMD but Newegg as well I found, but I see it as a good thing.

    https://www.amd.com/en/direct-buy/ca is the link to buy them. afaik, that was the only way to reach them unless amd provided you an email link.

    Direct from AMD.com store. I didn't even bother trying Canada Computers or Newegg.

    Well, according to Kyle I don't think it'll be a dud launch. It may take a week to restock but it sounds like it'll pretty much be daily or close to that, and sounds 100x better than NV.

    Torontonian here... I was able to snag a 6800 but they went quick.

    Fingers crossed it'll happen. I hit the AMD page at 9am, and immediately hit the add to cart for the 6800 XT. I was able to go into the cart, through the checkout, add my info, and confirm order. Then... weirdly it brought be right back to the...

    Thanks, makes sense. Wasn’t even aware of the interference issues with USB 3 and 2.4ghz devices.

    I'm having this weird issue with a Lian Li Lancool Mesh II case with the front USB ports. There are only 2 ports on the top, and they are both USB 3, one is occupied by a Logitech universal receiver which I use for a trackball mouse. The problem...

    At my local Canada Computers store, the lineup had about 20 people before I got there 1/2hr before they opened. The first person in line had camping equipment had apparently been there since yesterday afternoon, which is good for him since they...

    My mistake was trying to search for the 5900x / 5950x on newegg, it never appeared, and then I realized 5 minutes after 9am EST, you could get them through the promo links. Sold out. So then I drove over to our chain of Micro Center stores...

    I still own the Diamond V550 and it's running in a fully working PII 400 system for retro gaming. That X1950XTX was probably one of my all time favorite cards that I owned.
