My dog's neighbour's cat's owner's cousin who lives next to a drug's lord's stripper girlfriend's brother who also works for AMD is calling you a liar!redflagkiller wrote: ↑ We hosted a BBQ on Saturday and invited the neighbors.
One of my neighbors' son works in the AMD marketing department.
This is a just a marketing ploy to entice customers that were already considering the R9 3600X/3700X/3800X and making them reconsider to spend more for the 3900X because of the big 'discount sale' and also any potential customers that are looking for a 'deal' that they cannot miss. Testing out the strategy in Canada because USA would be too many orders and margins will take a big hit. Marketing psychology 101, humans are easily manipulated.
I'm hoping your neighbours' son who works for AMD marketing department is legit though.
