    As you guys have noticed there's a number of Radeon HD 4870 X2 reviews out on the web. Much like the RadeonHD 4800 release a lot of stuff seems to be going wrong within AMD. Last time the press was...

    wtf is happening there? its very good for them that these graphics cards turned out so good, because with those messed up launches, it would have been very bad for them.

    Well here's another bombshell .. the X2 launch now officially has been delayed towards the 13th of August.

    That's right folks no joke.

    I think this is a case of the Left hand not knowing what the Right hand is doing.

    Very poor management obviously.

    Delayed? I reported that was launch date a few days ago, how was it delayed as they said it would be sometime between July and Aug. So how is that delayed? And it appears they have allowed other sites to do "previews" of their card, limiting some of the games tested and power tests, and indicating that they don't have final hardware/drivers. Places like Anand tested the 1GB version, while others tested more of the 2GB versions.

    While it royally sucks that some sites got to do and have previews ready and others did not, I do remember seeing on some message boards that many sites were preparing their previews sometime last week.

    I don't know if its foul play or selective information dissemination, but if I had to put my money on it, I would say its a group of AMD reps that knows whats going on and things are going according to their schedual, but the people answering certain peoples questions don't. The result is that it appears everything looks like a monkey "multiplying" with a football, but not everything is a bad as it appears (with exception to the 4850 launch - that was a fubar).

    major disappointment again from ATI, summary of disappoitments to date:

    1. bad and buggy drivers
    2. bad communication

    -joking

    but August 13th for the release of 4870X2? there must be a manufacturing bug or smthng. I wouldnt rush right now to buy it as Nvidia now has plenty of time to fix there products/make them cheaper/ release a new 2nd generation of the 2XX series.

    my opinion people.. be patient till the end of august
