If it was bots, then why did Microcenter have 12 cards?
12 cards isn't a real launch. That sort of number is insane.
This must be 1.7% yields all over again.
Nvidia is in some serious trouble if they can't produce working chips.
Yup, I thought the same thing. Camped out at Microcenter starting at 1am in Madison heights, MI. #28 in line, and they had 11 cards supposedly according to the rumors people were sharing outside, but they had 12 more in a truck later that day. I just thought to my self, theres no way they're having a "launch" and only have 11... that's insane. Lo and behold, it was correct.
Oh well, it was a fun experience.
