You guys think they'll do the usual queue even though they did one for cyber monday?
They did one on Monday? I had absolutely no idea.ID: hmxrp3c
This shit is insane. Why don't they just use their twitter or atleast something to notify us, are we expected to check their website every second?ID: hmxvgi4
NewEgg sends me emails every day. They should rename their shuffle to the Gigabyte Clearance sale.....ID: hmxrdw3
yeah i stayed up late the night before bc my cousin was leaving town the next day and I said "I bet amd does a queue for cyber monday" then when I woke up I saw that I missed it.ID: hmz53sp
You wouldn’t have scored unless you’re using bots. The AMD queue is totally flooded, getting a sub 3 min wait time (which is required) is like getting a winning lotto ticketID: hmxrkes
then when I woke up I saw that I missed it.
What exactly did you see to know that you missed it?ID: hmxrh2o
they didn'tID: hmxy2it
They did have one Monday. It was closer to noon if I remember correctly. Also, if anybody wants alerts, join the stockdrops discord and they will notify you if you sign up for the AMD queue notification.
Chat opened. I asked about the queue for today...ID: hmxu5e7
did you get an answer?ID: hmxu9p5
The window closed right after I sent my question and has not opened since...
Looks like no queue today... back to guessing what day they do a drop then.ID: hmxtcwu
The queue is normally every Thursday.ID: hmxtrkl
Yh except this one and last one, very consistent I love it
I just talked to support and no drop today because cyber Monday. Check in before 10am est every Thursday
Honestly I do not know why these websites don't use their twitter accounts to give us a heads up for their restocks, instead they just let bots take them all.ID: hmy1t4e
It would be really nice to actually have some sort of official announcement. Or even better a lottery system of or something. Seems like they don't care enough to do it though.ID: hmy2g6f
atleast they don't have bugs like Best Buy I just spent 45 minutes in a loop trying to get a RTX card but it bugged and looped me for the same 2 prompts until everything was sold out. I just want a new GPU man.
Cool, cool, cool, cool, cool. No doubt, no doubt, no doubt.
Queue should be opening now.ID: hmxsbze
I tried. No queue for me. I will finally find a 6700 2 gens from now lol
I hope all the miners buy intel cards next week and relieve the stress on Radeon supply so I can get one.ID: hmxviup
Who says Intel cards will be available next week?ID: hmy0mvi
Yeah it's more like spring 2022
I've veen checking for the past 1.5 hours because the time is a bit unpredictable sometimes but alas, doesn't seem to be any queue today :/ID: hmxz4yo
I have been checking too. Now AMD is denying me access to their site...ID: hmxzix8
That happened to me too, and I thought I was being gentle.
Anyone know if we normally enter the queue without having to refresh?ID: hmxx5vm
It really sucks, that they can't tell the time on an official channel.
Hello, guys... What queue are you talking about? This one:?
Nothing was done for Monday.ID: hmxszeg
Yup. The queue was on Monday.ID: hmxtc39
Was it at the usual time? There was nothing for EU people.ID: hmxt5kl
No queue opened for me on Monday morning.
Just like no queue opening today...
Why do you guys look for AMD cards instead of NVIDIA ones? Or is it judt a case of trying to get whatever is available? Genuinely curious, plz don't hate.ID: hmyczg1
I think the reference Rx 6800 is the most powerful card you can get in 2 slots under 270mm. Plus the USB-C port is a massive convenience for portable monitors, and Nvidia doesn’t offer that on the 30-series. So it’s pretty useful in sff builds if you’re trying to cram as much power as possible into something tiny for LAN parties.ID: hmydrkp
Insightful answer, thanks!ID: hmyanvp
I would guess that most people here are looking for both, but AMD's direct drop is the best way to get a GPU for a good price.
The reference 6800 XT is $649. If you try to get a 3080 from Best Buy, chances are you can't get a reference or EVGA GPU. All of the remaining AIB 3080s cost over $1000.ID: hmybwpo
yes, this is exactly why!
