Well, today is the day! You should be on the lookout for the brand new AMD Radeon HD 7970 3GB graphics cards that we first were able to show you on December 22nd! And today we posted our review of the retail-ready XFX Black Edition Double Dissipation card with overclocked speeds - be sure to give it a read as well.
Scheduled to be on sale today, I decided to take a quick look around the Internet...
Newegg is on auto-notify for ALL Radeon HD 7970s...
Amazon shows a single card as in stock, from Sapphire, selling for a staggering $683. But it has Prime shipping!
Our search at TigerDirect came up empty.
Someplace called ExcaliburPC shows one for sale at $637, but is backordered.
Finally, Provantage shows a whole lot of nothing...
I am hoping that stock will improve as the day goes on and some of these vendors start to show availability in their systems. Otherwise, AMD is going to have a lot of explaining to do.
Feel free to post below if you find them for sale or not!
