Premier NVIDIA partner doesn’t have Fermi in its launch schedule.
Several sources are confirming that XFX will not be releasing their own GTX 480 or 470 graphics card, at least initially. Some sites have speculated this is due to the way NVIDIA bundles the GTX 480 or margins on the cards. XFX was an NVIDIA premier partner but recently began selling cards from NVIDIA’s only rival, AMD. We already broke the news of the XFX 5970 Black Edition.
XFX are expected to continue selling other cards.
