Apparently, being a AMD AIC partner isn't very fun either. I guess s*** like this is why they can't seem to shake nVidia's market dominance.

God, AMD's marketing continues to be awful. This is the one thing they need to change more than anything, and they've ignored it for nearly a decade.

Oh look, shills making excuses.

This isn't just a matter of stock. A rebate was provided so that retailers could sell $500 vega cards and actually turn a profit, but that rebate expired already, meaning existing stock for the $500 vega cards needs to be sold at an increased price to cover the cost. Shady AF.

they also claimed they delayed Vega to have adequate stock and virtually every retailer got <20 to sell standalone

It's not like this kind of shady crap is new from AMD, though, including their efforts to brush it under the carpet.
AMD's marketing really is awful.
