Since it takes some time to release re-branded RV620 and RV635 cards, ATI has decided to cancel some huge orders of Radeon 3450 and Radeon 3650 cards.
The reason is simple, as ATI is really serious about this re-branding scam and the bios won’t be ready for another two weeks.
We have learned a while ago that people buy bigger numbers and people would rather buy Radeon 4350 than Radeon 3450. Since ATI is aware of this they want to try to get by unnoticed and simply release the “new” cards for OEM’s and System integrators.
As you can see, not all is rosy in AMD’s graphics part, but from what we hear everyone is happy with Radeon 4850 and 4870 cards.
