This is directed towards @Sam_AMD @Amber_AMD and @Wally_AMD - I just wondered if there were any plans to offer Ryzen 7000 deals to the Red Team community. With everything going on it seems like availability should meet demand, but you never know. It would be nice to purchase through AMD on launch day.
It's not like that @zzznz - I don't think @red5 or myself for that matter are asking for special treatment. The Red Team in the past has actually done a couple of special releases to the community, just as a way to show appreciation.
It's never an expectation from any of us to get special treatment, but it is so appreciated when it happens.
I stand with red5 when he asks if the team might have a small reserve of cards that community members might be able to purchase at full MSRP, but are only offered to community members under a limited timeframe.
Sort of like buying directly from AMD like @RiverMouth mentioned above.
Yes, case in point, they just offered certain Radeon 6000 series cards to the Red Team community a few months ago. I bought a 6800XT that way. Prices were still a bit inflated, so it allowed community members a chance to buy a card direct from AMD at MSRP.
Which country are you located in? Perhaps it is something about your geographic restrictions?
First thing first, about buying directly from AMD (USA), here is the link:
To get to the page, all you have to do is click on the "Buy Direct From AMD" button found on the top-right corner of our homepage (AMD.com).
We also have the AMD Fan Store, where you can purchase our merchandise: https://amdfanstore.com/
About your original question @red5. I'm going to share it with our management team and will get back to you (just know that it may take some time).
And, yes, thanks to the Red Team Community's feedback and the support of our management team, we did sell our products at MSRP during PAX East (in Boston) - I was there! And it was fun!
Also, at PAX West (Seattle), we gave away a $100 Amazon Gift Card to the first 100 attendees to put toward their purchase of select AMD CPUs and GPUs - I was there! And, again, it was a blast.
Thanks I like it here I can find intresting posts. But bad thing is that I did come here because of problems with warzone and horizon zero dawn. Half year and I still did not open Horizon I think its time to try again.
