, 30 Kommentare

ATI hat heute mit der Auslieferung der Radeon 9800 Pro Platinen begonnen. Versorgt werden gleichermaßen OEMs, Distributoren, Einzelhändler und Kunden (Online-Vorbestellungen). Damit will man das Versprechen, 30 Tage nach der Vorstellung am 6. März erste Modelle zu liefern, eingehalten haben.

Bisher sind nach unserem Wissen keine Karten in Online-Shops als verfügbar ausgeschrieben. Allerdings lassen sich erste Preise erahnen. Karten mit 9800 Pro werden, so sieht es momentan aus, zwischen 480 und 520€ kosten und zuerst wohl von Hercules auf den Markt kommen.
