FUD Zilla heard from ATI partners that the new dual-GPU Radeon HD 5970 graphics card was sold out in a matter of hours. The site also notes that etailers saw an opportunity to make some extra cash by raising the price of these cards by about 5 percent over the MSRP.
ATI partners have told Fudzilla that they received decent quantities of dual-chip Radeon HD 5970 cards, but due to heavy pre-orders and huge interest, they sold out all they had in matter of hours.
Some additional cards might show up tomorrow or Monday, but it looks like partners can't provide enough cards to meet demand. Once they become available, they sell in matter of hours.
