    Incorrect, it was an advance notice to the public store.

    Anyway, I got one.

    This is an exclusive advance notice to members of the AMD Red Team community and this offer has limited availability, while supplies last.

    define "exclusive to members" then

    exclusive as in only to members of the AMD Red Team

    advance as in before it happens

    notice as in bringing to attention which is superfluous/self-evident

    Fun fact, "Radeon" is German for "Out of Stock".

    I would imagine...by member it means.....registered on Amd.com......meaning they have most of your details and are less likely to be a scalper or bot.

    Didn't show up for me at all this morning--foiled again...;) AMD seems bound and determined not to sell me one.

    it was kind of unclear without knowing where the link lead to, many assumed it was a private invitation for subscribers because direct link doesnt imply private or public.

    It's strange that german has two words for "Out of stock" cause "GeForce" also means "Out of stock" in German.

    Looks like its time for a new hobby. It seems like the casual gamer is being phased out. I wont dip into my savings for a GPU that is 3x the msrp. Scalping scum.

    I can fully understand why people are scalping, what I fail to understand are the idiots buying from them.
