You obviously don't understand how a channel works, AMD could sell direct and they would have one sales team doing all the work, or recruit a large number of global distributors and partners and have 100's of sales teams selling your products.
Having done a bit of a read around ont he web, I have discovered that in past iterations of ATI cards, the VTX cards have not been compatible with the MSI Afterburner voltage overclock function!
This for me would be a damn good reason not to buy the card.
These cards cost on average £100 more than the GTX 580 (which has been out for more than a year), but out of the box they certainly dont perform £100 better. However they are known monster overclockers so risking getting a card upon which I couldnt tweak voltages would be a huge no no NO!
