XFX Radeon HD 4770 and New PSU Pictured

We had a chance to drop by the XFX suite during the Computex. They are showing off their Radeon HD 4770. It comes with the dual slot reference cooler, which was actually not intended for retail and the power supply has a very unique design along with a cable management system. The PSU is rated for 850W and features a single 70A 12V rail. On top of that it is 80Plus Silver certified.

yea, kinda ponitless to show off or display an HD 4770 with a nice stock cooler when the ones that are supposed to be available aren't available and production is slow. I really hoped AMD would have had a solid card launch with the HD 4770, they could be making some good cash.

with the recent price cuts its not really that important as youll be able to get the 4870 for roughly the same dosh as that 4770 ;)

$99 compared to $146(newegg). 50(50% increase) bucks is a big price difference especially for people that might look at the HD 4770 as their budget is probly 100-120 give or take 5. though the HD 4850 which IS better can be had for 99 bucks right now. 9800GTX+ performance for 99 bucks, hell yea. So even if Hd 4770's were in stock there's no reason to get it when the HD 4850 is the same price. The reason for price drop on HD 4850/30 is because the HD 4770 when released killed it's sales since HD 4850- $140-160, HD 4830- $114-139(i thk). Then they ran outa stock of the HD 4770 and can't keep up with it now since TSMC is having issues with 40nm yield. I bet even right now they have the RV870 is full production and finished, they're just stocking up since they're in 40nm also, which may have attributed to HD 4770 be in short supply cause what yields they can manage is using the RV870 architecture so it'll be a solid launch and have enough in stock and warehouses till TSMC perfects the 40nm process. just my suspicions.

nah it's not cause they go immediately, i mean they go fast i'm sure, but if the yields at TSMC were better they wouldn't go out of stock like bam, any hard launched card has always been available and if yields are good they stay available. Well i guess ur right since yield ties into production lol

like i said sometimes only choices stay up late oh and autonotify = 20 mins after sellout hehehehe. They should change that button to [what u missed] or [notify me when youve restocked and sold out again] lol. Im sure at some point theyll build up since they fixed some probs with FAB (anounced last week i duno if thats gpus too). You also know once something becomes a hot thing, that ppl know is slow to release (Logitech G9x) for example u get ppl with brains reselling on ebay : which is exaclty wot i hate. I dont think itll get that bad
