    @LandShark Is there any way to reserve one? I have a gaming build and all I need is a gpu, and I would really like a 6800 to go with it.
    In the same boat..... have the entire rig set up and can't find a GPU anywhere.
    Living in Brooklyn, pretty sure there are gonna be a LOT of people since there in only ONE microcenter in the entire boro!

    There's 2 microcenters "near" me but they're both 30 minutes away, and since I have school I really can't camp there, so I was just thinking I could reserve one and then go and get it after.
  • there's no reservation at all. first come first serve @lamfifer
  • @Nicholas123 Tough to say if 5am would do it, they may not even have any 6800xt's.   If they have 15-20 I would be surprised.   I'm guessing more like 8 if the cpu launch was any indication.   The only saving grace is these are coming from several manufactures and they are all reference cards, so they may have more.

    Has AMD come out and said that stock is going to be short? or is it just from what ASUS had said like weeks ago? I just feel like everything is so unclear atm with this year, I just remember AMD saying they were going to have much better stock but that doesn't seem to be the case.

  • you would think they would swamp the  market just to take away Nvidia sales and gain more market share.
    I had planned on getting there at 4AM, but, based on comments, may just forget it and hope to grab one online

    @lamfifer The RX 6000 Series arent available for reservation at this time. Hopefully, we'll have enough stock for inventory to normalize quickly, but until it does, they won't be available for reservation.
  • it would be nice to see stock numbers just in case im wasting my time  :wink:

    Frank Azor made some indirect claims that AMD would not be a paper launch.
    That being said, I haven't seen any official statements about stock on release yet.


  • Is anyone planning to camp out at the microcenter in Westmont?

    any idea when they will have some idea?  Unfortunately, I can't camp out for a day and had planned on going at 4AM, but don't want to sit in the cold NYC morning and then not get one!

    I found some new videos that are pretty interesting.

    Pauls Hardware

    Gamer Meld

    Jayztwocents


    ShortCircuit


    Just unboxings and thoughts for now, but interesting to me. I'm patiently awaiting benchmarks!
    Edit: Added a video from Shortcircuit in which Anthony has a statement from AMD. Anthony quotes AMD saying "We do expect that we're going to have great global availability at launch and we're really excited to get products out to as many people as we can."
    I'd recommend watching the full video.
  • Going to be camping out at the Fairfax location again. If no one else is keeping a list of people who arrive along with product choice ect by the time I get there I'll be starting one up with 2 hour check in times (so you can go relax in your cars in the heat and such to warm up/take a nap). The last person that did it on the 5th did a great job and it benefited everyone and we were all organized and able to enjoy it so let's try to do that again! 
  • What time will you be going to the Fairfax location? Took leave from fort bragg to attend the release @gokitty199
  • I've just been informed that we will be receiving a very limited amount of RX 6000 cards.
  • Is anyone planning to camp out at the microcenter in Tustin, CA?

    Thanks for the heads up @LandShark.  We appreciate any details you can drop!   Helps to know if each store is only getting X of each card so we know if to try and wait our not.

  • well i'm gonna give it a go at the dallas store. we'll see i'll take any of the cards at this point. still waiting on landing a 5900x(upgrading from the 3700x). GPU is an upgrade on a RX 590 gpu.

  • how limited are we talking? :neutral:

    Could you share more about how that worked for that location? I'm thinking about heading out to the OP, KS location tomorrow evening, and maybe something like this would help. Did everyone agree on one person making the list, or was it something you posted near the door?

    yes, the person who made the list was the wife of the guy waiting in line and they were about 7th in line. yes we all agreed on it (thankfully no one was a complete prick and throwing a fit). we all had our names and phone numbers entered along with the product we wanted in a spread sheet in the order that we arrived. every 2 hours there was a check in so at like 11pm, 1am, 3am and so on we would all gather back in our spots and she would go through each one and verify they were there, if they were in their spot at that time they would get a phone call to give them a chance to come back (if they fell asleep and alarm didnt go off or something for example). no one tried to cut in line, everyone showed up on time to the check ins and it was great, everyone had a good time! just hoping theres not the *one guy there to ruin it for everyone*.
  • Any word on supply at Westmont/Chicago locations? 
  • @legrand
    Hey, I'm also planning on going to the Dallas location. I'm still debating on what time to go to get at anything.
  • Also, what time would they come online?
  • A line has started at the WESTMONT, IL location. Good luck everyone! 💚
  • Was anyone present during the 3080 launch in Tustin? If so did only the overnighters get a 3080 or did the early risers get one too?

    And by "we" you mean all stores nationwide?
