Default 4870X2 release date

Is the 4870X2 really coming out on the 12 of august?
Because usually with a release date so close most sites will have a pre order option for it.
I have my main pc that has been sitting here for 7 weeks now waiting for this card
Initially i was going to get a GTX280 but after evga screwed me over on the step-up i decided that this time around i will get an ATI card.

I have not seen any large website with a pre-order for a NDA'd product.

Don't worry though...it's coming.

I'll be ordering it too ASAP. Expect to see my 8800GTS' going FS right after, hehe. (And maybe my 6000+ in the near future also, looking at the new 45nm Phenoms).

No. There will not be many cards available for purchase on launch day, expect to wait until the end of the month for wide availability.
