    I personally say let things settle, compare a month of AMD's launch to a month of Nvidia's.
    BUT people have been very vocal about not being able to buy Ampere GPUs, I think it should be just as vocal to complain when you can't buy the AMD card of your choice.

    Luckily, I postponed my rig update from this spring to next spring, so.... I won't be grabbing a GPU from somebody who needs it right now. :D

    must admit was very dissapointed was online with several sellers I have accounts with as soon as the embargo lifted the sites crashed and there was no stock available when they came back online very poor, the retailers are handling this very badly from a web perspective, they know the demands and had cloudflare in place yet if your logged in with a known old prior used account then you should be allowed to buy not kicked out to start again because the bots will win every time.
    I also blame NV and AMD for poor inventory tbh it seems they have learnt the Intel lesson well drip feed supplies to keep demand and profits higher

    Why on earth would Frank Azor make such comments online, when AMD clearly didn't have enough stock for a proper launch?
    I mean, he's not a fan boy, those comments are part of his job, he makes the company look like amateurs.

    I said RTX release was a mess and I'll say this is a mess.

    Did both NV and AMD skip a proper production ramp-up phase prior to release?

    Demand might be higher than ever before but so does supply seem to be lower than before.
    I doubt supplying only a "handful" of units per store or country even equates to normal demand.

    AMD are Pro at creating really awkward situations. This is another one.

    I'm no semiconductor manufacturing expert, but I simply can't see how TSMC could have made AMD that many chips. The Ryzen 5000 series, both the new console APUs, and the myriad phone manufacturers are all burdening TSMC, among the more random customers, in addition to the RX 6000 now. Isn't this exactly why Nvidia went for Samsung? Some say they got such a good price they couldn't let it go, but I imagine actually having something to sell would be the bigger factor. Not that it would have helped that much, but it's not just the GPU, also the GDDR6X availability is hurting Nvidia, from what I've understood.

    I never expected AMD to have a good supply. Even the Ryzen 5000 doesn't have a good supply. That should have, at the very latest, rang the alarm bells for everyone.

    Well that's disappointing. Even Milan is supposedly delayed a bit too, so I wonder what is going on the supply side.

    That's because of Consoles, They have Priority in AMD.

    Ive given up waiting for the new AMD CPU's and GPU's, ive bought myself a new Civic Type R GT instead, its faster than a 3090 and costs less.

    These are copy/paste Nvidia excuses - seems like a lot of people bashed Nvidia for nothing...
    AMD has problems with 5000 Ryzen availability too so it's double whammy.

    Right - I remembered! - this kind of stupidity is something rare these days (or not???):

    Wake up people. Look what is happening in the real world. Ofc the companies won't release something in great numbers when global financial collapse is imminent.

    So you're saying that the impending economic doom is causing them to become averse to making money in what is one of the largest demand booms the industry has ever experienced? Ok, sure, that makes sense.

    Glocal Financial collapse?

    In case you have not been watching the markets are upwards the Vaccines are inbound (am in a trial) and lots of folks have lots of spare cash in the Bank, when the Vaccines are here we will see the biggest global bounce we have ever witnessed folks WANT to get out and spend their money most of us couldnt have a Holiday this year, there are lots of folks of course who have gotten hard ships but again they will also benefit as the rest of us come out of restrictions and are able to spend our Money
