TweakTown. 'Nuff said. Even if it's true, I wouldn't take it from them.

I can see this being another Fury X disaster if this is true, I hope the performance is better than the Fury X was at the time though.

16000 is a tiny number of gpus. For a company with a global customer base that leaves very few per region. I highly doubt that this is true, it would be more embarrassing for amd to be this ludicrously under supplied than to have nothing at all.

It is situations like these that Jerry Sanders was hoping to avoid when he launched AMD's pursuit to establish Wafer Fabrication Facilities.

Too bad Sanders got AMD in over its head on this matter. As for the AMD Users there is little that can be done about the situation. Grin and bear it.

Surviving is one thing, making money is an entirely different matter.

The question is will we have to go through this every time AMD presents a new product for launch ?

Will this scenario be repeated for Naples and Zen+ ?

This new rumour needs to be taken with a huge grain of salt, especially given the fact that Tweaktown calls the RX Vega a GTX 1070 competitor.
It's not though?...
