In order to provide GPUs to MSRP customers, AMD has started to use Queuing system In its own Direct purchase store Used to purchase Radeon RX 6000 GPU. In the store, once it is your turn to enter the store, you can purchase all AMD products at the suggested retail price. But there is an important caveat-not every graphics card is guaranteed to be in stock after you arrive.
The queue is simple; all you have to do is visit AMD’s direct store website, and if it opens, you will be redirected to the queue. In the queue, you will get information such as waiting time and product availability updates. If your product is no longer available for purchase, this gives you the opportunity to exit as soon as possible.
I entered the queue at the perfect time earlier this morning and only waited 5 minutes. When the time is up, the queue will lead you to the store, where I saw that all CPUs and graphics cards are in stock, except for the RX 6800 XT (although the midnight version is in stock), they are all at the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. It is worth seeing the inventory of many AMD graphics cards on MSRP.
But half an hour later, things changed drastically. The line has been in line for more than an hour, and many graphics cards are out of stock. Finally, this production line was suspended and officially closed after a few minutes, telling us that AMD’s available inventory for the day was sold out.
Finally, the store was reopened to everyone, all graphics cards were sold out, and all CPUs were in stock. So the queue seems to be unique to AMD RX 6000 series graphics cards, because CPU shortage is no longer a real problem.
Therefore, entering the store to buy RX 6000 GPU depends entirely on the timing and luck of the draw. AMD does not have these queues every day. As far as we know, the company does not have an official timetable for when the queues are open for business. The best thing you can do is to check the store daily for updates.
But for some unknown reason, the only exception seems to be Thursday, because the queue has been open every Thursday for the past two weeks, so please mark your calendar. However, this is by no means an official date, so we have reservations about these data, because anything can change.
