It seems that we jumped the gun a little bit on the availability of NVIDIA's GeForce 7900 GT and 7900 GTX parts that were released on the first day of CeBIT.

Since yesterday, it looks like NVIDIA's retail partners have received another shipment of products, as there were several parts listed as in stock on some of the UK's leading online retailers yesterday evening. However, it looks like most of them have sold out since yesterday.

Our friends at Elite Bastards did some research yesterday, only to find that there were cards in stock at Scan, Komplett and Overclockers UK. However, when we started clicking links in their story, a lot of the cards were listed out of stock. Either NVIDIA's partners are shipping minute quantities to retailers, or they're moving off the shelves faster than the partners can get them to the UK online retailers.

Overclockers has the ASUS EN7900GTX, along with the BFG Tech, MSI and XFX GeForce 7900 GT's listed in stock. You can find all of those cards listed here. We popped along to Scan, only to find that they've not got any stock of GeForce 7900 GT or GeForce 7900 GTX - all cards are listed as out of stock. We couldn't reach Komplett's site at the time of writing, but other UK retailers seem to be struggling for stock in the same way that Scan is.

We've spoken to several of NVIDIA's board partners since then, and they're adamant that they received more parts this time around when compared to the well-executed GeForce 7800 GTX and GeForce 7800 GT launches. Hopefully the situation will sort itself out over the next week or so - we'll keep following this as it develops.
