There are places taking pre-orders right now. Unfortunately for me it's seems the card I want may only be sold on EVGA's site for now.

 

Well I know that.

I see more places selling pre-orders for the GTX4x0 then the 5870.

 

I'm just curious as to who in here managed to get one.

 

I'm trying to sell both my GTX260s to buy a GTX470

I would get the pre-order in then. Doesn't look like any will ship until the week of April 12th and you don't want to be last in line, could mean end of May to get one. A reputable site won't charge you until it ships.

think i'd do less laughing and more digging to find the fact's because if it's true xfx didn't want to sell them because of limited life warranties, i'd be very wary of forking out my hard earned cash on a product that might fail 1 day after it's years warranty ran out. :shrug:

I'm sure XFX is really hurting: http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1263/1/

 

As far as I'm aware the company that really needs the cash, after being cut off from making chipset and being forced to open up and license their SLi tech to a rival chipset manufacturer, is nVidia. :mrgreen:

 

That's a good one. Wall Street Journal.

 

Despite AMD's early lead, delays at chip manufacturers offered Nvidia a reprieve from a drop in market share. In the fourth quarter, Nvidia increased its position in the desktop GPU market, raising its market share to 64.8% from 62.1% a year ago, according to Jon Peddie Research.

Doesn't appear to be XFX's decision:

 

http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/18278/65/

 

yes read that but also read it's because nvidia wouldn't play ball when xfx wanted them to help cover any excess returns when xfx offers it's double lifetime warranties.

 

what makes me wonder is xfx already had the gtx470 to test and pics were leaked of xfx gtx470, so did they discover something marginal with the chip so that they weren't prepared to offer the usual warranty without nvidia's help?

 

it really doesn't make business sense to me for nvidia to cut of xfx just because they started selling ati cards last year, after all xfx must be one of the biggest nvidia retailers with a very strong customer base. :shrug:

 

:b33r:

 

also why just this series and not all nvidia cards?? something just seems off. :shrug:

terry your spreading bs. None of what you said has any truth to it. Bunch of ATi fanboys making bs up.

 

Bottom line XFX stepped on nVidia with ATI. These cards are in short supply and are going to the companies that don't do wrong to nVidia. It was a business decision, this isn't high school drama time. nVidia is still going to sell chips to XFX.

you may be right kram

 

but bs or not,

 

it has to make you think if buying the early cards might be such a good idea.

 

think i'd wait a few months to see if there are any horror stories. :shrug:

here's some links no idea how reputable they are.

There are no horror stories to worry about, once again spreading bologna.

 

nVidia made sure these cards where right, if they didn't care they would have been rolled out months ago.

 

EVGA has Lifetime Warranty on these cards. ;)

You link says none of what you posted. You're figures are pure and utter BS, the company with the largest share of the market is Intel at 55.2% of the market from the latest figure. Anyone with even a peanut for a brain knows that so next time you pull numbers from out the empty chamber between your ears at least make them believable. :rolleyes:

Your attacking another member needs to stop.

 

This is for discrete video card sales.

 

Here is another one for you, sense you fell to more bash then be of any value to the thread.

 

This allowed AMD to snag a larger share of the overall market, which increased to 34 percent for the quarter. But it's not all bad news for Nvidia, who despite slipping four points still owns the lion's share at 64 percent.

i'd have a lot of doubts about this info kram, no way did ati drop it's share like that graph suggests in 2009.

 

here's a link to all gpu market share for q3 2009. :- http://vr-zone.com/articles/gpu-shipments-...6.html?doc=7936

Well you really don't read I guess.

 

The chart goes out to 2016 at the end, not 2009.

 

Once again in your link you pointed out gpu sales, not discrete video card sale.

 

This thread is about a discrete video card, as to why that is where we should be discussing. We are not talking about a on-board desktop and laptop video card here.

kram, a page back at the top, you reference an article and a quote directly talking about desktop GPU sales, not discrete graphics cards...... so....

 

do we have a new brandon?

 

There is nothing false in it at all, no bs twisting. I even back it up with other sources that say the same thing. Why would I post none relevant gpu market sales in a discrete video card topic. Only thing I didn't know is that you had to have a subscription to view the whole article.
