Only 2,000 FX Ultras for North America?
The Inquirer is reporting that NVIDIA's GeForce FX 5800 Ultra allocation for all of North America will be a measly 2,000 cards. Indeed, the entire world will apparently see just over 4,000 cards, which is surely less than the number of NVIDIA fanboys spread over the globe.
If the allocation of GeForce FX 5800 Ultra cards is indeed this limited, NVIDIA's first and second tier partners are probably in for a bit of a tussle. In particular, I feel for manufacturers like Chaintech and Gainward, who have poured resources into developing unique cooling solutions for the FX that may see only very limited production.
