I think it's safe to assume we'll be taking orders on the official release date. I don't know if we'll have actual stock, but we'd definitely start taking orders.

I assume we'll also limit quantities to 1-2 per customer per shipment, but I don't have official word if that's going to be in place or not.

From what I have gathered on yt. If you ordered 1k card or above you can order it directly from the manufacturers. I am interested in the non-reference cooler model but reference model not so much

Inb4 botters starts spamming the online sites with buy orders individually... Because delivery cost alone isn't going to make a dent in the profits.
Plus in the case that cryptocurrency for them isn't doing well, they can simply resell those GPUs...

Miners are setting a really bad precedent in regards to technologies anyways.

Yes and no. If the cryptocurrency price takes a huge dip, then a lot of miners will flood the market with those cards. In other words, the price of the gpu will take a huge dip and they will be taking a huge lost.

Really? The boom in cryptocurrency is what causing the mining boom. The cryptocurrency boom has lead to many technological advancement like smart contract, implementation of different and experimental algorithms. In addition, it in the form of initial coin offering is helping people to raise fund for other tech related projects.


I honestly don't understand all the hate miners are getting. I mean it is simple supply and demand.

Because any smart miners, or especially organized groups of miners, would mine and try to sell at the highest peak before it crashes to profit from it.
And they will most likely try to sell such a GPU before any signs of the currency crashing.

Everyone already knows that each bitcoin/ethereum hype, it always have a crash at some point, so miners can set a safe 'level' to sell off everything before it crashes, and then prepare to the 'next' currency that pops up.

Bitcoin? Done.
Ethereum? Done? (Will surge up again with the release of Vega, but it's a bit late in the mining period of said currency, but it will be used for the next one)
Next currency? Yet to be released (possibly going to happen when Navi is revealed).

Also notice that these currencies oddly coincides with AMD's GPU releases?

And it's very possible for a group to wait for GPU prices to be dirt cheap and buy a bulk of them ahead of them when mining activities is at it's lowest point.

Then they create  their own cryptocurrency and try to get it hyped up, then wait for those GPU to be overpriced and sell those bulk GPUs they are now storing, or had used to get currency ahead of time, to sell when the GPUs are 'hot' on the market.

From what we've seen with Ethereum, even the older R7 to R9 GPUs are popular, not as super effective but can be available as the main reason.

For example:

At the start of a cryptocurrency hype, lets say a coin is worth pennies. They can set a 'end' goal to sell off everything when time passes, like when each coins are worth hundreds of dollars.

Now in regards to electricity costs and such, it's generally a expected expenses, but going from pennies to hundreds of dollars is basically 10,000% multiplier.
