The worst thing it's really hard to find the warranty terms. It's nowhere on the product page.
Look under tabs for support and warranty information and it is not there.
Clicking here only gets you information on RMA and not warranty terms.
You have to scroll down to near the bottom of the page and it's hidden under the online store help center and click 3 more links past this to find it.
Most people are going to click the checkout button and put their address and payment info and miss it like yourself.
Considering this is the worst warranty in the industry bar none, customers have a right to know upfront. The number of terms and the number of scenarios AMD specified basically allows them to void the warranty under basically all circumstances because they specify the judgement is at their discretion and list of everything possible scenario including some ridiculous ones.
Unlike the Frontier editions launch where this wasn't much demand at launch, this has the potential to effects thousands since AMD.com is the only website with stock readily available.
AMD needs to meet industry standards here at the very least, not set records for worst warranty for a videocard.
The terribleness of this warranty, the fact that only AMD.com has readily available stock and on top of the warranty terms being hidden make this a very anti consumer move that Nvidia could not get away with. This is a blunder on their part and they cannot blame the competition.
