AMD Radeon HD 7970 now shipping from Newegg

Written by Jon Worrel

$549 - $599, high consumer demand

AMD's highly anticipated flagship 28nm single-GPU card, the Radeon HD 7970, has now officially become available from Newegg nearly twenty-four hours before its official launch.

The 28nm Tahiti-based GPU is available from six different add-in board partners - Sapphire, PowerColor, HIS, ASUS, XFX and Gigabyte - with a price range between $549 and $599 and approximately $8 dollar shipping within the continental United States.

We expect more AMD retail and online e-tail partners should have already received inventory and will begin listing the card for sale within the next twenty-four hour time period. Meanwhile, we expect Newegg's preliminary inventory to be purchased very quickly, as these cards are drawing large amounts of anticipation from PC hardware enthusiasts who value their overclocking potential and overall performance benefits.

join the club its even worse in uerop we get everything later. ower € is at 1.3 $ orso but an GPU or headfone cost more or the same in € so they make 30% more gains here than in america.

Well... one of my favourite onlineshops in Germany also lists the 7970....

For a bargain price of just

€569.90 plus shipping for the cheapest reference card.

On price comparison sites, the card is listed from €483.99 with free shipping. (Club 3D reference card, on drivecity.de)
Edit 1:59 PM: Just went up to €523.98

Keep in mind, that in Germany all prices include VAT.

All sites I checked have cards in stock.

Today's exchange rate is US$1.27 per 1€

Excluding VAT, the cheapest price in Germany would translate to US$516.53 (without VAT).

I've checked newegg in the morning Sapphire had ~200 cards in stock, other brands had 20-70 cards. 3 hours later everything was out of stock.

Hmmm 1000(-1) cards in a SINGLE store is quite good.

Besides what 7970 has to do with llano and hdd profits?

Oh wait you're an idiot and my mother always told me to stay away from idiots. Sorry.
