Haven't seen any discussion(forgive me if I'm wrong) if Kyle and crew will be covering the Radeon 7 on release. Hopefully AMD sampled them.

They usually review everything. They may not always get a sample (unless they are back in the good books?), but I would be blown away if they didn't cover it.

Pretty sure there was a post saying they were getting one in time for the NDA lift. They're currently in AMD's good books, so I'm expecting a day one review without [H] buying their own review sample!

yeah I figured since they were on Nvidia's shit list, and AMD has been less pissy with Hard lately, they may get one

I cannot answer that, but you might read up on other posts here.

I don't think you guys typically do unboxing videos, but if you did, was there a date that AMD said you could do such a video?
The other day there was a thread (I think it was on the front page news also) about some PC team in Japan that did an unboxing video. Judging by that it’s already allowed but, perhaps they were a special case.

I think that video got pulled (at least the original). Tried sitting through it, but didn't have the patience.

Well Glad AMD sampled Kyle/crew!!!!!

Hope it can at least dance with a 1080ti/2080. I'm worried it will not, and fail in that regard. Even if it is similar and slightly better, it's hard value proposition for many, now that used 1080tis are so cheap at around $500 ish. But at least AMD will have something better than the polaris cards and current vega. Tide them over until Navi can launch and hope that's not a turd as well ;). Yeah I'm pessimistic, but I love AMD and the've been more stripper than wife to me lately(prior to Ryzen,TR). Teasing me and leaving me hanging!

I hope someone can run this in GPU passthrough on a VM to see if they fixed the Vega reset bug. I doubt Kyle has time, but it would be nice to know...

I would imagine that the review is now done (or close to finished) since we are a day and a half from the NDA expiring. I would imagine somewhere 6-9AM EST that a review will be placed. Look for when the product goes on sale as well...reviews will be posted.

My credit card is waiting for me to spend money...
