Last week, we relayed some rumors that said AMD's upcoming RV670 was scheduled to appear in two Radeon HD 2950 graphics cards on November 19. Now, both OC Workbench and VR-Zone are reporting that the RV670 launch has been pulled forward to November 15. VR-Zone says AMD has sent its add-in-board (AIB) partners an announcement about the date change.
Similarly to last week's rumors, OC Workbench talks of two upcoming cards nicknamed "Revival" and "Gladiator." Revival is supposed to be clocked at 750MHz with either 256MB or 512MB of 900MHz of GDDR3 memory. Gladiator, meanwhile, is said to run at 825MHz and include 512MB of 1200MHz GDDR4 memory. The two cards will have 55nm RV670 GPUs with PCI Express 2.0 and CrossFire support, and OC Workbench talks of prices in the $199-249 range.
RV670-based offerings should go up against Nvidia's upcoming GeForce 8800 GT graphics cards, which are scheduled for October 29 according to the latest rumors.
