    The question is, should we be thankful that Navi got -alledgely- delayed so we even got this card, or are we gonna see it overtaken by the Navi arch extremely quickly?

    UK has less than 100 cards for launch.
    So far we have 44 cards, more are due any day, so we essentially have just over half UK launch allocation.

    Next wave shipments are not yet confirmed.

    They go live 2pm Thursday!

    Thanks Gibbo...Any credence to rumours in this thread on whether or not the first so many orders receive the "reviewers" style packaging for the Radeon VII?

    OK I've sent request into warehouse and marketing, they saying should be fine, once they get photos I will post up once I've checked with AMD I won't be breaking any NDA by doing so but I can't see that it would as there are pictures all over the web and I am there no.1 customer. :D

    Except that smaller Navi dies are coming with the same performance.

    A lot of what we get told has specifics left out so you can't class it as gospel, As an example how Raj Koduri gave us a date for when Vega launches and when it was only the Frontier edition launch his excuse was I didn't say gaming Vega, He did it a gaming event though,

    When they say that they are taking a loss it could be that they are talking about a loss when compared to what they would of got if they had used the chip in an MI50 card.
    Companies like these purposely make statements that leave room for more than one possible interpretation, that's a given.

    That seems like a very low stock allocation for the UK.

    Where did the same performance part come from?
    I've been expecting Vega 56 or maybe Vega 64 performance from Navi at best, It's a Polaris replacement.
    I've not seen anything to contradict that yet.

    Navi has always been expected to be Vega 64 + 15% for $250.

    44 for OCUK, 100 for the entire UK, and 5000 pcs worldwide.

    Since there is like only 5000 globally at launch this is to be expected. This is a PR stunt
