ATI Radeon HD 5800 series still in short supply

Posted on Wednesday, March 17 2010 @ 17:28:16 CET by

The ATI Radeon HD 5800 series has been on the market for months, but FUD Zilla heard AMD is still struggling to get produce enough chips. The rumor is that NVIDIA is to blame for this, as the company reportedly booked the majority of TSMC's 40nm wafers for its DirectX 10.1 notebook parts and the upcoming Fermi.
Our sources are telling us that ATI still struggles to get enough Radeon 58x0 based cards and that partners are quite happy to keep the prices of cards around €375 for the card in European etail with VAT on. Naturally TSMC is to blame and our sources even suggest that Nvidia booked majority of 40nm wafers for its notebook DX10.1 parts for Calpella and Fermi chips.

Since this will roughly be the price of Geforce GTX 470, which should start selling for €350 and since current Radeon HD 5870 price tag is some €75 lower than the pricing on Geforce GTX 480 cards, people are expecting some price cuts, but at this time there are no any indications that this will happen.
