AMD Claims 30 to 1 sales of HD 4890 over GTX 275

nVidia says that is not true

| Posted: Apr 6, 2009 3:48 pm

nVidia's mostly paper launch of the GTX 275 has yielded some unexpected benefits for AMD.

 

Due to the limited number of actual cards (only Palit has them in Europe) and the general availability of the HD 4890 AMD is claiming a 30 to 1 sales difference.

 

nVidia is keeping pretty mum about this only saying that the AMD figures do not match what they have. Of course they have not revealed what figures they do have but then again AMD has not exactly published theirs either.

AMD Claims 30 to 1 sales over GTX 275
Rubbing its hands together with glee, AMD reports that initial sales for its Radeon HD 4890 - which was released and widely available on April 2nd - are outstripping the GTX275 at a rate of 30 to 1.

 

AMD - which, like Nvidia, sells GPUs to partners rather than flogging complete graphic boards - claims this particular piece of SpInfo comes from two of the largest resellers in Europe.

 

Although our INQuiring minds may be inclined to take AMD's claims with a large pinch of salt, it's also worth bearing in mind that good launches tend to put a few thousand cards in the channel, whilst mostly-paper launches barely manage two dozen.
