Also, in Logistics, you ship products to distributors months in advance to ensure their logistics chain has enough time to ship out the products to their retail stores.
In this case, XFX would ship hundres of these Video cards to Bestbuy's Regional Distribution facilities. Bestbuy's internal Logistics dept would then decide when to arrange shipments to their local stores.
XFX doesn't make delivery directly to the bestbuy local store. So yes this card was probably released too early, but i'd say its Bestbuy's Regional distribution's fault for jumping the gun and sending out the card to their local stores.
Try to understand all possible scenarios before just jumping on the XFX bash wagon.
was reading a Portal 2 thread on Reddit.com, and someone mention Target's register will refuse to sell you an item whose release date isn't met
For Best buy, he said that those items would have SKU and price tags of $10,000...
so still, BestBuy and/or XFX dropped the ball, either at communicating the release date or lack of communication and BB goes to sell it
that saying, I went to BB 1.5 weeks ago and saw the 6770/6750. didn't make a big note of it since i havent kept up with GPU releases
EDIT(was on page 10 when i posted... saw the XFX rep post just now)
how about Linux/FreeBSD drivers per the box?Edited by paperwastage - 4/18/11 at 1:22pm
