A Non-Disclosure Agreement means he can't tell anyone about it, or even the terms of the NDA itself. While it's unlikely that SKYMTL would be sued for breaking a NDA, it would terminate the relationship that he has with the manufacturers and end the flow of goodies coming to HWC for review.

He does drop hints when he can. He can't even let us moderators know when release dates are, we have to get it from other sources just like you do.

As for the 7000 desktop series, my guess is you will see the first paper launch before Xmas, but you won't see any cards in the retail chain until Q1 2012.

All I was trying to convey was that you'd have to find your info elsewhere.

There's lots of rumors and leaks posted out there, most of which are confirming my earlier guess for a launch date. Whether there will be cards in the supply chain at launch remains to be seen. SKYMTL did post in an e-peen build thread earlier today that it should be obvious in a week which GPU to choose.
