Looks like AMD wasn’t kidding about that immediate availability thing with the Radeon HD 4850 512MB cards.  Newegg has a slew in stock.

Damn, that’s pretty impressive – already on day one the Radeon HD 4850 is digging itself in for a long price war with prices as low as $169 after mail-in rebates!
