AIB partners haven’t received Geforce GTX 400 reference designs

A Digitimes report claims that several AIB partners have reported that Nvidia still haven’t sent them complete reference designs for the Geforce GTX 400 series. The March 26th date was always expected to be a paper launch, so this news should come as no surprise.

Widespread availability is expected in May, at the earliest, with limited quanitites available in April. Interestingly, XFX and PNY are already offering pre-orders at $499 for the Geforce GTX 470 and $679 for the GTX 480.

limited quanitites available in April. Interestingly, XFX and PNY are
already offering pre-orders at $499 for the Geforce GTX 470 and $679 for
the GTX 480.

These prices are even higher expected. Digitimes expects price wars to start not before May, but at these price levels, taking into account all facts and rumours, price wars are unlikely for a long time.
