Radeon HD 3870 available in the U.K.

But not in Europe


Having looked around for stock of Radeon HD 3870 cards, one thing is clear: certain markets are prioritized by the manufacturers and it looks like the U.K. is getting the bear share of any of the new graphcis cards at the moment, be it from AMD or Nvidia.

The simple explanation behind this is that there is more money to be made there, due to generally higher pricing than in the rest of Europe and even most of the world. But one has to wonder what kind of an image ths gives the companies in question.

We can't find a single European e-tailer stocking Radeon HD 3870 cards and most retail stores aren't expecting any for at least another couple of weeks, with some brands not expected to arrive until early next year.

If you're really desperate for a card now, and you live in the U.K., then you can get your hands on either an HIS card from Scan for £152.74, or a PowerColor card from OcUK for £164.49. But if you really want a bargain card, then you should head over to Ebuyer, who has 27 of PowerColor's  overclocked PCS cards in stock at the time of writing, for a very attractive £140.65 inc VAT.
