UK's Allocation of Radeon VII a Grand Total of 100-200 at Launch

Update February 6, 2019: Our colleagues at Kitguru were able to talk more recently with Gibbo from OcUK, who now clarified there may be anywhere between 100-200 Radeon VII available in the UK at launch, and possibly more coming after that. Take all statements with a grain of salt accordingly. The original story is below.

In what could add credibility to reports of AMD's initial production batch of the Radeon VII being no more than 5,000 pieces, a representative of British PC hardware retailer Overclockers UK posted on the OCUK forums that the inventory for the UK is no more than 100 pieces. From this, OCUK has stocked up 44 cards, and a few more are on the way. In a forum post, "Gibbo" mentions that OCUK will have more than half the Radeon VII graphics cards allocated to the UK market. Sales of the card go live at14:00 BST, on the 7th of February. AMD is probably playing the Radeon VII launch close to the chest, and future production batches will be greenlit looking at how quick these 5,000-odd cards fly off the shelves.

Well, maybe, just maybe, this time there won't be a crypto-craze-induced rush to order 1000's of them within the first 2 seconds after the sales go live, which would immediately give retailers a reason to jack prices to sky-high levels :)

fingers crossed !

That guy from OCUK has been full of it for a while now - why are his unconfirmed tweets getting posted as if it is truth? Lets not turn into WccfTech..

Vega64s did not get prices immediately jacked because of crypto-craze-induced rush. It was announced with $499 MSRP but apparently intended to sell limited shipments of $499 Vega64s but mostly the bundles with games at $599. That did not go very well.

Btw, the claim in this news post comes from the same guy as the beginning of story in the link.
He has also been wrong a bunch of times so it should be taken with a grain of salt.

I cant even understand his posts... its typically such poor English and such biased drivel, I dont even read it. I cant tell you what a dream it is to find the ignore button again since toxicity here isnt kept in check.

Mods should really get rid of him at this point, he does nothing but thread crapping and trolling.

Or better yet, he should get a life and do something more productive than spamming threads with his nonsense.

What do you mean nobody is going to buy it? AMD is right in that this is an excellent card for a lot of professional work. In terms of gaming at around RTX2080 performance a lot of AMD fans will buy it just for the principle as well. If it does better than that, it'll sell very well.

I dont I'd go as far as saying they'd buy for the principle as much as for the great price.

See the negative towards Radeon 7. People will rather buy 2070 than Radeon 7.

GTX1080Ti was $699 2 years ago. RTX2080 was $699 five months ago and got a lot of flak for the same performance at the same price point. In a week we will get Radeon 7 at $699 with the same performance...
I would not say it has a great price.
