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!!!!!!

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.
