Radeon X800 XT—Phantom Edition?

— 10:14 AM on November 18, 2004

Could availability of the Radeon X800 XT Platinum Edition really be this bad? Jeff writes:

I have had an ATI X800 XT PE on order from ATI since the end of September. When I ordered it, I knew it was not yet in stock, but was told by ATI "end of October." When the time approached, I called again and was told "mid-November." Today I called and was told that they had received a "limited number" of cards which were released to fill "older orders." Now they are telling me that another production run would occur "by the end of December." I consider this to be outrageous and abusive of people who have supported them. This company deserves to receive a big black eye in the marketplace and suffer financially for their ineptitude.
Does anyone else have a similar tale, or has anyone had better luck buying a Platinum Edition? Do tell.
