Earlier this year my exclusive story about AMD only having around 16,000 units of its Radeon RX Vega graphics cards for the most proceeding the launch, and here we are now - with news that AMD will experience stock shortages until October.

According to DigiTimes' sources, AMD won't have Radeon RX Vega in larger numbers until October. Other sources claim that AMD are having issues with their Advanced Semiconductor Engineering packaging technology, but you know what? It doesn't matter what problems AMD are having, from their perspective - the Vega launch is nothing but a gigantic success.

But then you read the comments from people all over the internet calling the Vega launch the "worst GPU launch ever" and that it's "worse than the Fermi/GTX 480 launch"... and all I can do is agree. This isn't good, and we're not getting the full truth from AMD. The other thing that sucks is that AMD had such a great year from Ryzen and Threadripper, but Vega wasn't just mediocre, it has bombed.
