Amer van Sharky Extreme heeft een interview met Jim Anderson van Canopus Corporation in elkaar gedraaid. Canopus kondigde gisteren aan de levering van de Spectra 2500 TNT kaart te zullen stoppen. Jammer, want de Spectra was een errug goede TNT. Canopus heeft er een duidelijke reden voor:
The Spectra 2500 had no trouble flying off of store shelves and online vendor inventories. Why stop producing a product hailed by many within the industry as the hands down best nVidia TNT based video card?
You have a point. Unfortunately we under forecast this product based on the recent collapse of pricing and demand for Voodoo2 boards we experienced this summer. As a result, we limited our production builds to the original forecast. By the time our backlog began to build, the lead-time to restart manufacturing to build more boards had pushed us to the end of January. This, combined with declining TNT prices, caused us to make the difficult decision to not continue manufacturing this product. We have been trying to supply as many boards as possible to fill current orders.
