    Ouch looks like Nvidia needs to step it up and get some stable drivers out the door then.

    Although if Crysis isn't launching until Q2 this kinda makes sense, gives them time to make a better product.

    Could be rather harmful to their sales and profits, things are not going AMD's way at the moment. I don't think there has been a delay on their mid-range and low-end products so we'll still see those at cebit.

    Makes sense. It's kinda silly to release DX10 parts before any DX10 games are out. The games keep getting delayed, so why not the parts.

    On the one hand I don't mind, because I don't want a DX10 card until there are games to play on it.

    On the other hand, I am disappointed, because the earlier these cards come out the faster the price will drop. So a delay just means higher prices for longer :(

    I wouldn't be surprised if this was a "strategic" move, much like Nintendo's Delays of it's Wii Titles for this year.

    I guess I will not wait mid March now for the R600.

    Nvidia will not drop their prices in March now, looks like they will benefit from it. ;)

    Maybe they got their hands on some DX 10 code and saw there were areas they could increase performance and so they went back to the drawing board.

    I mean really there isn't much use for a DX 10 card right now(unless you like messing with faulty drivers)

    Acutally no... end of March is Q1 ending so it is on track for Apirl which is Q2. Also if they went back to drawing board it would then be moved in late Q2 or early Q3. Anyways R600 don't have a problem in destroying G80 , the problem lies in power consumption.

    Hi...
    No equal crisis until q2 but people does buy plates with directx 10 to have I complete .
    In these gpu the games of directx 9 runs much faster. No only directx10 is the best of these.
    Amd much this taking in sending so much gpu as the CPU. Them this leaving to land to nvidia and intel. One hurts.
    I want buy an amd prosesor whit 4 cores and the r600 but I must hope then until q2.
    My english badly!
    cya

    pd : r600 can win over 8800gtx but can take 8900gtx ?

    This isn't the kind of news we were all hoping for after daily tech reporting on a definite hard launch at the end of march.

    BUT it is not all bad, April 22nd is D-Day regarding intel's big pricedrops, after which quad core (none extreme editions) and all duo's (again, not extreme editions) will be a fair bit cheaper, money saved can go onto a X2900XTX instead of a 8800gtx or something like that

    Maybe there has been some sort of malfunction at the product plant, fire perhaps? a bad batch of silicon?! plausible possibilities.

    Shame. I've just got an 8800 640 GTS so I'm not in the market, but I was hoping the R600 would come out just to give nVidia a bit of a kick.

    Buggerations!!! :wallbash: I was kinda counting on the March launch and then subsequential STALKER benchmarks of the X2800XTX against the 8800XT in Vista so I can choose the card for my new PC. Now I'm going to have to waste my money on a mid-ranged stop gap solution like the X1900GT. :grr:

    AMDed

    Some time ago, there was some info floating around that, like the X1800 series, soon a refresh version surfaced, which improved Ati's cards in a number of ways. There was some rumour about R620 (or something) being another one of those "refreshes".
    So, maybe AMD is holding out, with the objective of launching a better product, heck, maybe they even want to launch the new cards along with the new CPUs, that would be cool.
