AMD added a chat window to the store

It's an actual person who will get pissy and try to dodge your questions about why nothing is in stock yet miners are still buying cards by the pallet direct from AIBs.

 

Do drop them a few comments 🙂

I'm sure the person behind the chat is just some low wage call center worker who has no information about why miners are getting cards so successfully. I don't think interrogating them about it is going to help anything. I suspect miners are getting cards hand over foot through somewhat unscrupulous means a lot of the time. The cash of a gamer spends just as well as the cash from a miner so don't see why AMD would give preferential treatment to anyone and infact having checked their site quite a few times over the months I've seen them implement new steps to try to stop bots from buying cards. How well it has worked is debatable, but I see no wrong doing from AMD here. 

 

Last time I checked amd.com a week or two ago I saw the chat and I asked them if they knew when the next best time to check back would be and they said Thursday mornings 7AM pacific time and I thought it was cool that they're willing to share that instead of just telling people to "check back soon" or something.
