Mid-July to mid-September == 3 months? You've really gotta start eating fresh food, again. . .

Wow we really need another thread on this.... not. Maybe you should read one of the other 100000 threads on this subject, and put your comment there instead of starting a new thread?

as I posted in another thread:

go here to see pictures of some of the official PowerPoint slides that were shown at ATI's launch on July 17:

http://www.viahardware.com/atilaunch_3.shtm



...... as you can see from that picture of the slide (the second slide from the bottom) ... they clearly stated "Shipping in 30 days"

... meaning ... Radeon 9700 will start shipping on around August 17 .....

shipping as in to the vendors and resellers does not mean on shelves. They have met this goal. Now the stores have to put them out.

Don't you love it when fanatics apologize for what was clearly deceptive ploys of corporations?

ATI wants you to think the card will be an August release, when in fact its a September release. If EB, Best Buy, and rumors all say September, I suspect September it is and ATI *has* done this before, with the R8500. So really, I'll believe they're available August when I see the forum posts of, "I GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" and "DAMN IT, I INSTALLED IT AND NOW MY PC WON'T START!" and "WHERE ARE THOSE DX9 DRIVERS?"

Heh Then. And only then.

Will everyone just relax?

They stated that the 30 days date is when they will ship out product to retailers. So, I think those dates will actually be moved in since it only takes 2 weeks MAX for the stores to get their product.

This is going no where...

There are many threads in the past about this. Use some effort and use the search engine to look for the answers, instead of trying to start something.
