    Where / how to buy AMD gpu tomorrow

    Yeah, I mean - I got both an RX480 and a Radeon VII on launch day. This was no prayer.

    Where / how to buy AMD gpu tomorrow

    Yeah, there's no way. I was 'on my game' at AMD, Newegg, and Amazon. If they were there for 10 minutes, I'd own one. I do not.

    I Bought a 6800 / 6800 XT Today!

    I started the add-to-cart process on the AMD website...things paused and got hung up...then the site crashed for me (still can't load for that matter). Obviously I did not complete my purchase either.

    Same. I don't see anything at Amazon. Newegg just has everything sold out/out of stock.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    They must have had like 5 in stock. I was refreshing like a madman.

    Zen 3 Launch Availability

    Not necessarily. For now all it really means is that you loaned B&H $799. They can either fill your order, or refund you. edit: And for the record, it's after 9am and I don't see any stock on Newegg, Amazon, nor AMD direct.

    Best driver for Radeon VII 16Gb + Asrock x399M

    I often have to 'trick' mine into displaying by unplugging the DP cable and re-plugging it into the video card. FWIW, other than that, I use the latest driver without issue on my Radeon Vii

    Microsoft Internal Documents - Permanent Work From Home

    I'm inclined to agree. Our company wants us to be WFH right now, but allows us to come into the office if we want. I've been working in the office every day since this thing started. I really can't do WFH on a full-time basis. WFH gives me a bad psychological mind keeps saying...
