    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    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 probably stick to newegg.

    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 who made that $10 bet.

    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 main page... ok... so I did it again, but now the...

    Front USB Issue with Lian Li Lancool Mesh

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