AMD promises better supply of Radeon HD 5000 series soon


AMD has launched no less than four graphics cards based on its new DirectX 11 architecture and with praise from reviewers the cards have sold out. Both AMD and consumers are of course disappointed by the insufficient supply and even if semiconductor manufacturer TSMC gets a lot of the blame AMD gets criticized by the buyers. The company has now announced that the Radeon HD 5000 family will be available in larger quantities the coming weeks.

AMD VP Dirk Meyer had the following to say:

“TSMC has made good progress with the 40nm technology. At this point our new ATI Radeon HD 5000 family is pulling on 40nm and as is always the case with the hot new product early in the launch: we are hand and mouth on supply. I expect that situation to improve over the coming weeks and months”

After AMD reported 18 percent increased revenue before Q3 it hopes to reach even better numbers this quarter and the new graphics card is the key.
