Not sure if you'll receive an official response from AMD in regards to availability - but here's one thing to think about:
A lot of folks have jumped (yet again) on the mining craze in the hopes of making a quick buck. For those who have been mining for years can easily shift their resources/infrastructure around to add banks after banks of GPUs; but I'm willing to bet (I dont' have the rough numbers, simply basing this off of my own experience on the subject) that the majority of purchasers were individuals setting up "rigs". The sad thing is that at least 80% of them will not see a positive return as they simply got in too late with too little - so pay attention to the reused market getting flooded soon. I say soon, because as the network/difficulty increases (this happens every 2 or 3 weeks), the profits decrease unless they can add MORE miners to compensate. Chances are that over 90% of the above will not be able to do it and opt to simply resell to cash in before the market stabilizes again to where it was a few month ago. Yes, other coins will keep popping up, but they will not be as profitable unless big exchanges (like Coinbase) officially adopts them like they did with Ethereum and Litecoin.
In a way the timing is just right for Vega RX to be released - you should start to see more Rx 4/5xx's at vendors (or used - be careful!) around that time. I would advise you to wait for Rx Vega unless a Gtx 1060/70 will be all you would ever need.
dunno but in 2 clicks i found asus geforce gtx 1080ti overclocked 11gb rog gpu. limit 2 per household. pick up only. so go to asus.com and look at micro center and find your store nearby and pick up one or 2 . they are pick up only. comes with free game (destiny 2) ... heh shrugs :/ ...
also contacting amd wont help.. if radeon makes the board and then sends that to a dozen different companies for a cooler to be put on and maybe a little oc tweak. sapphire,msi,xfx, blah blah.. sapphire has best amd cards anyway top notch coolers and back plates ect.

whiskey-foxtrot But who can say they won't jump when Vega out and sweep out the market again! Can AMD ensure that, I don't think so! But AMD should take extra care now to ensure this problem area if they're really care about gamers! I don't know how but it's gamers who are effected much. I need only 1 and now there's no stock. This is insane! Dmn miners! AMD please please please, restock RX 580 again, I need only 1.
