Looking to grab a new graphics card from the Radeon HD 6900 series? You may still be able to get one in time for the holidays, but according to a story by Fudzilla, a post on the AnandTech forums, and a story at TweakTown that's since been taken down, the launch has slipped slightly from late November to mid-December.
The sources all quote an e-mail from Chris Hook, one of AMD's PR people. Hook reportedly played up the performance and popularity of recent Radeon products, adding that AMD is going to take a little more time before releasing the Radeon HD 6900 series. He went on to state that the non-disclosure agreement relating to the Radeon HD 6950 and 6970 will be lifted during the week of December 13.
The e-mail apparently didn't provide a concrete explanation for the delay, although we're not talking about a huge setback. In looking at our coverage of AMD's GPU roadmap, it's worth noting that even with a mid-December release date, AMD would still be right on schedule to unveil these parts in the current quarter.
