Have you seen this webnote that I got from them that I posted in the other thread?

I've changed it to the 5850, Sapphire for you. So that's been done - I'm sure they come with DIRT2 as well, but concerning the release date. I've been told there's a chance we may have them next week, for Friday - however, this is subject to change as we have nothing in writing from ATI to suggest when we're getting them.

Suggests Oct 2nd? :(

a handful of 5870's and no 5850's... suddenly this launch is turning a bit sour

Overclockers really need to tell everyone what is going on! Not just a webnote to individuals who ask.

If there is a 'chance' they'll be here Friday Oct 2nd, then it sounds like they've no solid idea when they'll arrive. Previously they said they'd be getting a big delivery on Monday 28th, which is the 'pre-order' date still given for these cards.

Yes, I think they need to clear this up.

Just to update that, Ash, Fatboy has said that the powercolours are leaving the factory on Monday, and should be with OCUK on Wednesday.

Hope that helps :)
