ATI Radeon HD 5800 cards still hard to get

Posted on Monday, November 30 2009 @ 20:07:26 CET by

Even though AMD unleashed the Radeon HD 5800 series more than two months ago, FUD Zilla writes it's still pretty hard to get your hands on one of these cards as the company is still struggling to meet demand. The Radeon HD 5700 series on the other hand is readily available in most major EU markets, the Radeon HD 5970 is far from widely available, but not that hard to find if you don't mind spending a lot of cash.
Sadly, two months on, it's virtually impossible to get HD 5800 cards in most markets and the situation isn't much better when it comes to 5900 series products. AMD execs said the shortage should be resolved by the end of November, but it's obvious AMD is still struggling to meet demand.

A quick search on our price search engine reveals that you're much more likely to get struck by lighting than find an HD 5850 in European retail. Getting an HD 5870 is somewhat easier, as it's available in a couple of stores at €400+. The cheaper HD 5850 is a much better deal, as it should sell for around €200.
