    No. From what I have heard is that AMD wants to control this launch so all of the OEMs must wait to do reveals of their product until NDA is up. AMD is the only one sending samples for reviews at the moment. Why? Because I guess they needed to control results. This isnt new. Intel does this for its CPU launch too. Strict control reviews. Nvidia has done this before too. Only issue this time is the OEMs have a better cooling solution and im sure they think they are losing customers because of what the results are showing without a good explanation from the reviewers and AMD. I have tried to explain it but no body listens to me. hahahah
