[TGDaily]AMD to launch HD4800 series on June 23

post #1 of 16

In the latest round of rumors from Computex 2008, we learned that AMD managed to upset the majority of its partners by delaying the Radeon 4850 512MB GDDR3, code-named Makedon.

AMD has decided not to launch its new graphics cards on June 18 as originally planned.

However, add-in-board companies have the cards available right now or can receive them within 24 hours of time. Given the current market climate, some companies believe AMD should have launched the cards at Computex.

We were told that there are “tens of thousands of boards just sitting there†and AMD’s partners are not too thrilled.

However, it looks like that AMD is using the delay to change its launch strategy. The GDDR5 equipped 4870 will now launch at the same time as the 4850 512MB GDDR3, but it is unclear whether there are enough GDDR5 chips to enable AMD to ship the 4870 in volume right off the bat.

They pushed it back a week? But at least they did move up the 4870 and looks like stock is good which is encouraging. Nothing like a soft launch.

At least they have an obvious reason for doing it: They didn't want Nvidia's launch to overshadow their own. Unlike some of the other delays that seemed to come out of nowhere.

When is Intel's price drop supposed to occur? I'll probably get a 4870X2 along with the Q6700 at that point in time.

haha if you do that then expect some major bottlenecking bro. if and when you got that e8400 then that would be a perfect match though.

Great. A 5 day delay will give me time to make 5 days worth more money. I'm gonna need it to, I'm less than broke now haha. I'd better start OCing my 4000+ again and see how much of this AMD bottleneck I can remove before the big day..
