Ground Store Decks Up XFX Radeon HD 6900 Series Graphics Cards

Ground stores almost all over have begun decking up their shelves with Radeon HD 6900 series graphics cards, disregarding launch dates set by AMD. Earlier today, an enthusiast from Germany showed off pictures of Radeon HD 6970 graphics card made by PowerColor that he bought off a store. A more recent set of pictures show a ground store in Asia decked up with XFX Radeon HD 6900 series graphics cards, ready to sell. Perhaps stores feel that the launch date is a couple of days too late to have much impact on X'mas sales, and that it's better to sell stock as it comes. XFX has Radeon HD 6970 and Radeon HD 6950 2 GB graphics cards up for sale, both cards stick to the AMD reference design, except a small aesthetic change, the rear panel sports an XFX-designed air exhaust vent.

All those boxes contain driver CDs that can let you use the card.

Check it out mate. Definitely worth for $370. GTX580 performance for $170 less! :rockout:

more like GTX570 performance for some more $$... it really depends what you throw at it, and I'm gonig off TPU and Guru3d's review, waiting on techreports too.

price is right, hype was .... well wrong. Nvidia really did well slamming don the GTX500's real fast.
