No Radeon HD 4850's in the U.K.

Written by test

Only two companies list cards

Although there doens't seem to be any shortage of Radeon HD 4850 in some parts of the world, the U.K. seem to have been left high and dry, as after having searched some of the biggest and most well-known hardware etailers, we couldn't find a single card in stock.

What is even worse is that most of them didn't even list any cards, despite the fact that these companies had more than enough time yesterday to add these products to their Websites. We only found two companies listing cards and that was the one and the same card from Sapphire.

Both companies are also listing the card for the same price, £147.99 or about €188/$292, which is a crazy price in comparison to what we've seen these cards going for in Europe and the U.S. This is a rip-off of Britan, at its best, as this is a lot more than just adding some VAT on top of the U.S. list price of $199.

On a side note, we spotted several manufacturers on Newegg offering mail-in rebates of between $25-30 and the company had cards from no less than eight different manufacturers in stock. Makes you wonder what went so wrong in the U.K.
