    People can you stop spreading Amd's propaganda? TSMC never are the bottleneck, that is because the numbers of production machines / woofers are prepaid from Amd and Nvidia. The problem is that Amd gave the majority of the Gpu production channel to Consoles and Cars in order to have everyone as a client. If Sony wants new console earlier than 10 years, then they should pay in advance for Apu woofers and have the product delivered next year when the machines are in place. People think that Amd have good management today's, that is wrong (Heavy PC Apu reminder), they are saved by their intelligent scientific department.
    So you are saying that AMD reserved chips for Sony & Co. at the last minute & thus had to cut back on the ones originally planned for PCs?

      all these GPUs are targeting miners this not for gamers
      The low end parts are the 6400 and 6500XT. They just don't have the low end price. Or rather the price bracket has shifted, just like how "mid range" parts are +$300USD now. The plan is to replace those low end parts with iGPUs anyway. I saw an article that claimed 1660 tier performance out of the RDNA3 iGPUs.

        Several charts show that Amd didn't sell any significant amount of Gpus in a demand crisis chronicle period. The other opinion says that they keep their Gpus for themselves because they upgrading the Nvidia ones they had. Nvidia sold as much they could, even 12nm ones at the same time with the 8nm ones, that's a first for Nvidia.

          If the problem is the refresh I don't care about the useless "5% faster" 6950 XT, but at least send an older 6900 XT to Michael: I really cannot stand the fact that for the first time ever AMD has the gaming crown on Linux and you waste such an opportunity by not sending the highest end model to the only reviewer with a big audience.
          ## VGA ##
          AMD: X1950XTX, HD3870, HD5870
          Intel: GMA45, HD3000 (Core i5 2500K)

            2 - we treated Windows & Linux reviewers the same way; Sapphire and others have seeded boards to Phoronix in the past

            I may not have answered your question; let me know if so.

            EDIT - looks like the forum code is replacing my "#1" and "#2" line headers with "Home" and "Forum"
            Those are perfectly fine answers for me. I didn't know about not seeding refreshers. I just kind of assumed y'all send a GPU or two to Michael when you release them since any kind of press is better than no press (especially since these are said to be just as good or better than NVIDIA's top of the line models).

            For a laugh, I'd have replied yesterday but my cat chewed up my ethernet cable and it wasn't until she went crazy on it at 4am today that I figured out why I was having these random disconnects.
