Fudzilla has managed to score Geforce GTX 480s boxed and ready at Point
of View’s warehouse. These cards will be shipped to (r)etailers to meet
the 12th April projected release date.

Point of View are a middle tier Nvidia AIC – but a major player in the EMEA region. We know now that the EU region will at least have some cards available by 12th April, but how many is unknown. Rumours unanimously suggest a very thing availability with all cards selling out within days, if not hours. The next batch of GTX 400 availability is suggested to be May 2010.

Along with availability, it will be interesting to see what kind of pricing the GTX 400 products settle at. If the 12th April release of GTX 400 products is indeed a very limited release, it will be hard for retailers to maintain the SRP of $349 and $499 (naturally, more in the EU) amidst dwindling supplies.

No news on availability in other parts of the world, though we would be surprised if Nvidia AICs don’t release at least a small amount of GTX 400 cards in the North America region.
