Wahh wahh. We got word that the Radeon 4800 series line launch was going to be delayed, and decided to check in with some people ourselves. Computex correspondents Brett Rackner for WhatIfGaming poses the following question to AMD PR after the AMD press briefing earlier today.
It is really a matter of where we want to be. We want to launch when the time is right, and that’s all we can say about it. Keep an eye on June 23rd.
OK. So it happens. But it makes sense given Nvidia’s launch strategy. The GDDR5 equipped 4870 will launch at the same time as the 4850 512MB GDDR3, and people will be waiting. Don’t worry.
