OCUK's Gibbo Claims that the UK has been allocated "less than 100" Radeon VII GPUs

'Less than 100'? Really?



Read more about Gibbo's claims that AMD has allocated "less than 100" Radeon VII graphics cards to the UK.

Another UK retailer is apparently claiming to have more than 50 at launch, Gibbo is claiming OCUK will have 58, and there's more than 2 retailers stocking VII's, this doesn't quite add up.

Wasn't this "Gibbo" guy lambasted for inaccurate stuff like this before? I seem to recall some controversy with his name attached. Or I might be remembering someone else's name, because Alzheimers!

Nope, he's usually pretty much bang on, hence why it's gotten to the the point where news sites write articles based on off the cuff comments he makes.

Ahh, my bad then! I must have his name confused with another guy.

So much for AMD saying supply won't be an issue.

Gibbo is usually good but he was pretty off on a few points with Vega, including with supply, there's definitely some controversies to his name but not all deserved, certainly wouldn't take his word as gospel but he never means wrong at least.

Hopefully there will be supply in August as that's when I'm buying mine

It is probably better to wait a while and get a Strix or Nitro version for the best cooler and performance.

I'm hoping for a Nitro or Strix but haven't multiple AIB's said there are no plans for aftermarket versions ?
