    A friend of mine bought an X1800XT in March with a view to getting a master Crossfire card when finances allowed.

    He's now finding it impossible to source a master X1800XT. :confused:

    We thought there may have been a temporary shortage but none of the suppliers he normally uses has had any for months. Have they stopped making them?

    Well I've no idea but thats the exact reason why I bought my X1900 master card first. The slaves will be around for a lot longer then the master :)

    I wouldn't of though they'd stoppped making them, they just might be in short supply.

    This is what I've been telling him but he's a bit reluctant to do that because he's only had it a few months and doesn't want to shell out the extra just yet.

    They were stopped in January when their new card came out the x1900. :)

    Ah ha. Well that explains it. Cheers. :)

    It would have been nice if one of his suppliers had been so forthcoming - they all just told him that they have been on back order.
