    The R600 will be 9 1/2 inches long right?

    I didn't have a ruler with me, but it doesn't poke over the end of a standard ATX mobo. :p

    Sounds good :) Can't wait for this + a life time warranty would be the icing on the cake.

    End of May if OCZ do a X2900XT using GDDR4. I've got a bad feeling that numbers of GDDR4 X2900XTs are going to be a bit limited on initial release. I think June/July will be more realistic for the most of us when supply increases and the debut premium prices drop a bit.

    its to late now, too many people have upgraded to 8800 allready - i think they need to put there effort more towards mid range dx10 where they have a a chance of getting decent sale figures

    I'm behind this all the way. When they set about doing something they normally impress.

    It's a shame that it's been such a delay though, with the success of the x19xx series I was looking to return to ATI with the R600. Last week I had to bite the bullet and upgrade to the 8800 GTX, tried holding off but got caught in the waiting game.

    ATI must have lost a lot of the DX10 market since so many people were needing to upgrade.....If they keep delaying it's inevitable that people will take another route.

    It's a shame really since by launch time I'm sure Nvidia will have the 8900 or what ever the next card is called ready.

    I've been waiting since January and I can no longer wait forever either. But it's going to have a major effect on my new PC build. Whatever I get now, mobo and GPU wise, might all end up getting completely upgraded again in 3-4 months time when we have a full selection of graphics solutions on the table. Especially since I'm going for a serious gaming rig do I go all out and pin my colours to the SLI flag now (a la nForce 6 mobos)? Do I gamble on a Intel975i mobo (with a single GPU) for a future Crossfire? Or do I for a budget mobo/GPU stop-gap to last me until summertime?

    Tough time of choices to upgrade or build a new PC. Even harder on the wallet. :sigh:

    i think it is a tittle to late for ATI to enter the DX10 market....... at least they should get it out before crysis is out.... [hint]or bundle it with the GC[/hint]
