Rubbing its hands together with glee, AMD reports that initial sales for its Radeon HD 4890 – which was released and widely available on April 2nd – are outstripping the GTX275 at a rate of 30 to 1.
AMD – which, like Nvidia, sells GPUs to partners rather than flogging complete graphic boards – claims this particular piece of SpInfo comes from two of the largest resellers in Europe.
Although our INQuiring minds may be inclined to take AMD's claims with a large pinch of salt, it's also worth bearing in mind that good launches tend to put a few thousand cards in the channel, whilst mostly-paper launches barely manage two dozen.
