ATI cannot meet demand...year 2

Give this lovely email from ATI a read. I'm not too upset since i had originally ordered these cards for ATI AMR, and then found that AMR was not coming, and that some website listing the x850xt as only having 8 pipelines(a typo i was to find out later, but the AMR thing had already sealed the deal)
We are sorry to inform you that we will no longer be able to fulfill your current order on the RADEON X850 XT.

NOw what has happened?

I dunno...

But I CAN tell you that sapphire is making all X800 cards from here on out...

see here :
But it appears Sapphire has won this round and is producing all X850 and new PCIe X800 cards based on the R430 core. Asus and MSI could make their own cards but it might cost them too much to produce their own printed circuit boards (PCBs), and put them together.

Sapphire, on the other hand, builds the cards for Dell and other OEMs. In this case, Sapphire is acting as a contracting company working for ATI, which then sells those cards back to who ever wants them.
So it seems that this newest deal has something to do with it.

As well, compuUSA now has the x800XL@ MSRP($299)

As always, i'll keep you all informed of what i hear.
