Anonymous industry sources told TweakTown that AMD's Radeon Fury X is not going to be available in large quantities due to yield issues with the new High Bandwidth Memory (HBM).
The site heard AMD is going to have just 30,000 units of its Radeon Fury and Radeon Fury X graphics cards but there's no word about how many cards will be available at launch.
Rumors about HBM yield issues have been around for a couple of months now but we still don't know if there's any accuracy to this. If it's true it's going to be another major bummer for AMD.
AMD could have more than 30,000 units of its HBM-based cards, but with yield issues popping their head up this early, we could be in for some trouble if the rumors are true. The issues could subside moving into 2016, as the yields of HBM improve, but with HBM2 right around the corner... well, things could get messy.
