AMD shocked: chipmaker sells cheap bikes
The chip manufacturer AMD is considered a rival to Intel and Nvidia. No wonder, as the company is best known for its processors and graphics cards. But now AMD has another product on offer that seems to be extremely popular with fans – because it is currently completely sold out.
AMD goes mobile: New bestseller sold out after a short time
When you think of AMD, the first thing that comes to mind is the current Ryzen processors or Navi graphics cards. No wonder, after all, the PC business is one of the most important for the Nvidia and Intel rivals alongside the console division. What many do not know: AMD sells a large number of merch products in its own fan store, including hoodies, T-shirts, stickers, backpacks – in short: everything a fan could desire.
Recently, however, two new items have been offered in the online shop that probably no one expected in advance: bicycles. For 299 US dollars (plus 50 US dollars shipping), fans can choose between a stylish cruiser or a mountain bike. While you can only change the frame color on the cruiser model – black or white are available – buyers of the mountain bike are also offered different tire colors depending on the frame color. If you choose the black frame, you get white tires, while the white frame is available in black and orange.
Cheap bicycles from AMD: Fan item is completely sold out
Although AMD’s sales strategy is not fully apparent to us, the chip manufacturer seems to have had exactly the right nose. Because if you take a look at the website, you will see: Both models in all configurations are already completely sold out – even though the bikes have so far been sold exclusively in the USA.
While we’re scratching our heads and wondering how the chip manufacturer did it, the AMD team is probably already working on other curious fan articles. Perhaps we will soon see the AMD prefabricated house or the AMD stroller. In any case, we congratulate AMD on this somewhat different success and wish everyone a good trip.
