"It is true that at the moment we are not making SDR Annihilators but have
shifted production to the DDR (Pro) cards. That doesn't mean there will be
no more SDR cards made. Nor does it mean that stores will not get any more.
We have not made the SDR Annihilator product EOL (End of Life). EOL would
mean it would be history with no more to be made again.
In some of Creative's regions there are large numbers of SDR boards, while
in others there are not. I can't tell if a particular local reseller is
going to get more or not in the immediate future. You need to check with
your retailer and let them get information from their supplier. That's the
way it works.
Here in the US, quantities of SDR boards available have been very, very
small relative to demand, and our next shipment (any day now) will be DDR.
With such limited supplies it makes more sense to focus on the product which
has the greatest demand and that will give the best performance available to
customers. Trying to do both under the current supply limitations would
raise our costs on both boards and not allow us to make the DDR board at the
price target we have established. We could shift back to producing both
once the supply/demand balance shifts. It would be best if we could produce
both right now, giving customers the choice. However, shifting production
to DDR-only now was something that we were compelled to do under the
circumstances to remain competitive in the marketplace.
