MSI R6970 HD lighting EOL?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I just had one of my MSI R6970 Lightning pop on me, GPU overheated until video card became unstable. So Just got message from MSI saying "currently out of stock of suitable or comparable replacements for your unit","In this case we will need to provide you with a refund based on the market value" which is to less than what was paid for and a lot less for ones that are still around aka Ebay so far. So now my Eyeffinty only has one card and seems that I cannot find another lighting.

So I did a search and found none of the major retailers are selling it anymore or out of stock, Newegg does not even have it listed as a product only a couple of shady looking dealers still have them.

So what shall I do ask MSI for more money since they are low balling me on the value? and also seems like the card is EOL too.

They are low-ball you. You provide them invoice and date of purchase and asking them refund the full-amount.

Nah, I doubt it's EOL.. The same thing happened to the MSI 580 Lightning Xtreme edition for a few weeks and now its back. They most likely ran out of products and couldn't supply any vendors with a date they'll receive any more of them.
