The way the component industry works is that you either launch your product in January or in case you are not ready by then, you have to push the launch back till after Chinese New Year.
The target to launch Radeon HD 6990 in the latter half of February, but don’t be surprised if it slips to early March.

Sounds nice.. I'm sure it will be very fast (and expensive) but how is 7000 series "right around the corner"?

Hopefully the 6990 will light a fire for Nvidia.

Aye. I was just hoping it would be out in time for me to step-up.

amd's own roadmaps have the 7 series slated to come between the end of Q3 and the beginning of Q4 without any delays on the new 32nm chips.

I did read that the new 6990 is supposively fixed of micro stuttering. Quoted price by the owner of overclocking.uk was set to $499 usd. at that price i'm thinking it will be 2gb and not 4gb. which is very fine by me as long as it runs on a dual 6950 level or above.

was around a year between 5 and 6. expecting to see the same between 6 and 7. no way you will see from 7 to 8 in only like 4 or 5 months max.

Well if the 7000 series is anything like Bulldozer it should be arriving around Q3 2014 lol. I agree with you this is far too early to tell, but still it seems like new GPU families are being released sooner and sooner.
