No, we can't. And tech sites that hammer on the supplier for limited availability are missing a prime opportunity to apply some pressure to the e-tailers that are just fine selling to the bots because they get their money either way. Some sustained negative publicity MIGHT move the needle a little on this issue. Also, if these are actual tech journalists, then maybe they could do some investigative journalism on the supply chain to determine what the real issue is instead of assuming. I'd be the first in line to chide AMD or anyone else if some real journalism gave evidence of a "paper launch".can we really tell if it's actual limited stock vs bots?
Edit: Man, I'm in a cranky mood today for a Friday. Not suffering hot takes, ignorance, assumptions. People giving me a wide birth today at work too. I've had my coffee today, I swear!
