I see that 30 pages later AMD finally came to their senses. :laugh:

Ohhhh, so we can even find out if they cherry picked the review samples too, right. ;)

I think I speak for most of the people here when I say, thank you (and everyone else at TPU,) for everything you all do. :lovetpu:

Is the blue speckle surface the island in your kitchen? That counter top is different. Since AMD didnt send us a sample lets talk about interior design now.

amd prolly fired his sorry ass and I hope they did
You know better than to double post. I know you know where the edit button it. :)

On topic: I suspect he has been sullying AMD's reputation in the last couple of weeks so badly that Lisa probably told him to leave the PR to the PR department.

Needless to say, his douche-baggery was uncalled for and he should be fired as a result or, at the very least, demoted. He hasn't exactly been helping AMD lately... that's for sure.

I believe Lisa Su deleted his Twitter account.

PS I also wonder if they forced him to pay for the card w1z is getting.

Also CrossFire review (which will be interesting because I expect dual-Fiji card to have chips of the same power-tuning as the one on Nano).

The dude said one thing right tho.

"Reviews need to be fair."

Except, well, ... you know where this is going, so I will leave this at that.

@btarunr Now the review is actually up, I suggest either updating the article with the review link and a few words to explain how it came about, or deleting the whole thread, otherwise it's contradictory and looks silly remaining here.

No, this thread is a monument to AMD's mishandling of the situation. It has the full sanction of TPU, so it stays.

Fun fact though: The letter informing us that a sample is en route roughly coincided with a top AMD exec deleting his Twitter account.

OK, I can see why you want to keep the article up and I don't have an issue with that.

In that case, it just seems prudent to me to put a short update to say you got the card in the end (with a review link) and perhaps a little background on how this came about.

Just my 2 cents. :)
