”Due to an IC substrate shortage, supplies of ATI’s Radeon 9250, X300, and X550 are short of demand at present, according to sources at graphics card makers. Although the chip vendor launched its 90nm process R5xx series only in the latter half of this year, the Radeon X1800, X1600, and X1300 are also limited in supply, the sources added.”
ATI has had supply issues in the past from time to time, more recently with the almost-impossible-to-find X700 card. When card purchases pick up this month and next, it's bad news for low supply, although ATI has stated in the past that their supply issues have been amended.
