r2900 series to be launched on May 2nd
 
The release date (which will be a soft release) for the r2900 series has been moved ahead to May 2nd instead of the 14th, while the HD 2400 and 2600 will be released on the 14th- at which point the Radeon HD 2900 XT, which will have clockspeeds of 740MHz core and 825MHz for memory, will be available for 399 USD.

Is this information from this Inquirer article?

Get an R600 date with Daamit

I think the Inq has changed their dates about 6 times in the last two months. Maybe this one is a bit closer to the truth considering the date they quoted is less than a week away.

No- It was released by AMD, and is on a few sites.

Hmmmm.....can't find anything about it on the AMD website, nor in their press releases.

Maybe they just haven't updated their site yet.

All this speculation and bogus information is sure alot of press for AMD/ATI. Good, bad or indifferent, their upcoming releases are becoming so anticipated that it is all you hear about. I really believe it is a PR move by AMD/ATI to steal Intel's press for their massive price drops. If you can't beat em, kick em in the nads and then again while they're on the ground! GO AMD/ATI!!!!!!

Definitely not worth that much!

I'm expecting the outlook to improve for these cards with better drivers (perhaps over-optimistically), but if I was buying a card right now, I'd go for it- just because I like to take the risks on new products and underdogs.

i'd just like to see what other people have to say about things that just the official reviews. so i thought that some people on this board might have tried this card out already.

If I be not mistaken, I think there be one amongst us who be sampling the goods presently.....;-)
