For those of us eagerly awaiting the release of AMD/ATI's R600 graphics card, prepare to be disappointed. Apparently, AMD has changed the hard launch of the R600 from March to an unconfirmed date in Q2. The reason cited by AMD is that their R600 series is not where they want it to be yet, so they decided to move the launch to be able to deliver a competitive product. The delay, although disappointing, is not entirely surprising. The delay means that AMD can ensure that the retail cards will be readily available at launch; and they can continue enhancing the performance of the drivers for R600.
Regardless, when R600 arrives it's going to be one hell of a show down.
