    Maybe it's to clear 5XXX inventory before they launch. According to Charlie D, the 68XX series is one month behind the 67XX series based on when they taped out, but that assumes they will be rushed to market as soon as they are ready.

    I wonder how much the 5870s will drop in price? I hope so anyway, I want to go CF .

    Re: News - Radeon 6000-family delayed until November?

    It may be overly picky on my part, but since AMD haven't announced any official, or even unofficial, launch dates for the 6k series (AFAIK, anyway) it seems a bit harsh to talk about them being "delayed"... I mean, it's not like the Fermi situation, is it

    Was about to say the same thing jim. Date speculation is as much about throwing off your competitors than anything else

    A second 5850 would tempt me if cheap enough for some crossfire fun, it does seem feature wise there is nothing much better than the 5***s, its just raw horse power.

    Fudzilla now thinks that there will be a launch in October still:
    http://www.fudzilla.com/graphics/ite...ck-to-november

    Presumably this just means that press have been invited to an announcement on October 12, and it might not be a launch of any new hardware. Even if it is, we won't know until the time exactly which variants will be announced. Even then, it doesn't mean that they'll be available for some time. At least it's rumoured that when they are available, there'll be enough to go around, or at least give a chance of getting hold of one.

    ^^ was typing that when you beat me - peter scot at fudzilla has an update saying the launch will be `on time` and expect lots in retail in november - maybe some word from scan about pre order availability as `inside` knowledge??

    I saw this too. As far as I understood it, the 'delay' was always more about retail availability than anything else. Press briefing is bound to be earlier though.

    And I agree with comments about date speculation on un-announced products...but hey, it's a slow news day

    And more importantly, potential price drop. I think that's the take away message here. The HD 6000 cards will arrive as soon as they're ready.

    I dunno, Scan were one of the big nvidia Fermi launch partners - are ATIAMD* still speaking to them?

    *still can't get used to that

    Nvidia's cards haven't beaten ATI's cards. Is there any reason for the 6000 series?

    Progress of technology? ATI/AMD need to keep producing top quality products rather than relying on a single generation, otherwise they will stagnate. It's not really about beating Nvidia, it can also be about getting current ATI users to upgrade.

    Nvidia still have the fastest single chip card in the market. Im suer AMD want that title back and to keep up as much preasure on nvidia as it possibly can. Its the same way as in*el keep pushing chips even thugh AMD have nothing to challenge there top end.

    Given the lead time on products is several years, I guess they assumed nVidia would have a competitor by now. The 460 shows they got close, but it's all about the mid range.

    If you get a lead you need to maintain it by releasing better products ahead of your competitors catch-up efforts, stay one step ahead as Intel do with AMD.

    The GTX460 is very good and compelling, people will go the extra £0-£50 over a 5770 for the greater speed, the 450 is completes well with the 5850. So AMDATI need to get back ahead, and before NVidia refresh the high end with a 275/285 or a 295 they'll want to have their new cards out.
