AMD Radeon HD 7970 to be in healthy supply

Written by Slobodan Simic

Will depend on demand


According to our sources, the new Radeon HD 7970 will be in healthy supply and partners are confident that there will be a great deal of cards in retail/e-tail once it hits stores on 9th of January.

Of course, the entire supply and availability picture will depend on the actual demand but partners are saying that there should be plenty of cards in retail/e-tail. The situation on the market will also depend on actual allocation plan and which markets will have more or less cards, but unfortunately we couldn't get any info regarding it.

There are still no details regarding the official pricing for Europe, and some early listings are pointing at prices well above €600 with VAT, but we expect it to be available at around €500 once it hits all other shops on January 9th.

For now it the things are looking good for AMD and we are quite sure that there will quite a bit of demand for these cards. The US $549.99 price tag it won't directly influence the availability and there should be a decent amount of cards ready to be bought on January 9th 2012.

Yet again Europe gets f*cked in the conversion... The GTX 580 costs around 500$ while the 7970 costs 550$: ten procent more. The GTX 580 costs 400€ in Europe, so the 7970 should cost 450€ at most. I guess I'll wait for the 7950 or 7870 then.

Here we go again, Canadians get screwed with high prices. HD 7970 retailing for $600 to $650 is criminal. It's bad enough AMD recommends them to be $550, still over $100 too expensive when you compare the Price/Performance ratio. AMD needs to re-thing this rip-off price or they are not going to sell.

The cheapest GTX580 I could found was 413 euro, and it's Point of View.

But I agree, the price should be no more than 450 if they want to be competative.

I agree 550 is a bit steep .. but comparing price/performance to whats out there, this is the best card on the market atm - that doesn't even include the cards rich feature set and far superior perf./watt.

Aw come on, in America alone there are up to 50 million fat kids without a life but with a credit card that will always buy the fastest GPUs. Don't kid yourself, all HD7970 will be sold.

Great point, I would have liked to see somewhere in the lines of about $479 to $489. Hopefully this $549 price tag comes down super fast so I can get one :P

Maybe they will come out with a 1.5GB card and drop the price $50.
