AMD delays Radeon HD 4850 launch to June 23

Posted on Wednesday, June 04 2008 @ 19:08:27 CEST by


Theo Valich from TG Daily claims AMD decided to delay the launch of its ATI Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 graphics cards from June 18 to June 23. Valich claims the firm's plan is to release the card together with the Radeon HD 4870 which features GDDR5 memory.
However, add-in-board companies have the cards available right now or can receive them within 24 hours of time. Given the current market climate, some companies believe AMD should have launched the cards at Computex.

We were told that there are “tens of thousands of boards just sitting there” and AMD’s partners are not too thrilled.

However, it looks like that AMD is using the delay to change its launch strategy. The GDDR5 equipped 4870 will now launch at the same time as the 4850 512MB GDDR3, but it is unclear whether there are enough GDDR5 chips to enable AMD to ship the 4870 in volume right off the bat.
